There is a small regret to say this series now has come to an end with this final release.
Thank you dearly mr. Dennis Moser, aka usr/sbin, aka AldoManutio Abruzzo.
I never experienced the live concerts themselves as they were performed on Second Life, but judging by the content its indepth quality grew as the collection widened. 12 Full moon concert series are now captured in time. 2010 a document forever available.
And you the listener have one last album to complete your collection.
I certainly hope you’ve enjoyed this and will for many years to come.

FMC08 usr/sbin – Chandras’ekhara

The last full moon of summer and we are two thirds of the way into a year of full moon concert series. Another single track that comes close to the hour mark. Dennis Moser certainly treats us with the splendor of his musical talent. Besides the usual guitar and bassguitar improvs on this occasion Dennis introduces the wonderful sounds of the sitar (or dulcimer).
It will certainly be a happy and sad day simultaneously when the goal set is reached and a full year will be catalogued and preserved forever as a fine fine document of fine musicianship. But that day is not near yet; untill then let us take the time to enjoy these gems.

Another first timer on Just not Normal we are proud to present is Jonathan Ewald from Madison Wisconsin US better known under his artistname Litmus0001. There may not be as many releases to his name but those that are are sublime. Tending more towards the ambient rather then the experimental these three tracks have specifically been chosen to feature on Just not Normal. During 2009 Jonathan presented a podcast/mix show on the Notheen radiostation called ‘Psychosonic aether’ which ran for 21 episodes. All his releases are free releases and he is a fervent appreciator and supporter of the creative commons world.

Improvised and recorded in a single take on March 7th, 2010 at Worthless Research Laboratories in Madison, WI.
6 string bass; electric guitar; percussion; AM radio; effects; loops and delays

And once again Dennis Moser brings us another deep hour long episode of the monthly Full Moon Concert series.
Another hour of experimental improv’ that seems to have taken a diversion from the soft and sweet ambient that we have gotten to know in this series. This episode will certainly whet your apetite and make you yearn for its successor.

If you’ve heard some of the previous releases by this very prolific artist before you know your ears will be in for a treat. This re-release certainly will grab your attention with its outworldish sounds and great atmospheres. Whether it’s ambient or experimental is up to you really, from subtle to in your face for certain it is just not normal!

FMC06 – usr/sbin – All on a night in June

Reaching the halfway point of this full moon concert series one may wonder; can it go deeper, can it go better.
The answer is given by the artist himself in this sixth edition. A near full hour of a single track improv that rocks the boat.
Droney ambient culled with the fingerprint guitar sounds and solos of the master himself. Let not these words keep you from downloading this album on the spot. You will not regret it.

JNN098 Apocalyptic Frequency Experience – Musings on human metamorphoses

And in the darkness lives the mysterious. Or in other words what happens when an experimental artist from Mexico (Roberto Telles Garcia) gets head to head with a French mistress of the experimental soundage (Murielle Gallon) and complete the quartet of brotherhoods with Kalavazombie on synth and programers and Simio Autodidacta for pics and art.
Their assignment: Express in sound the musings on human metamorphoses.
For certain they have reached their degree in deep dark experimentations and surprising sounds dithered with hidden messages.
It is dark, it is brooding, it is Apocalyptic!
