"basically sounds are for listening to. and composition is the act of organizing sounds."
Frank Zappa, 1940 - 1993
one of the last interviews, featuring also a Synclavier
Search YouTube for "frank zappa steve allen" for the earliest version of Frank Zappa as he burst on the musical scene. He was light-years ahead of his time. An amazing inspiration.
thanks joedeshon! amazing indeed
Zappa made his contemporaries look like amateurs. His genius ( a word often used incorrectly) was of the calibre of Mozart.
He could express humour without relying on lyrics.
We'll never see another Frank Zappa.
