Conveniens - Conveniens (reissue) Review

by Sherrill Fulghum

Conveniens self-titled album is a re-issue from their debut LP back in 1984. The musical musings from John May and David Sterling Smith defied description and was often referred to as falling between the cracks of rock and jazz back 20 plus years ago; but today it would be simply known as techno. Drums and various percussion instruments have been around since the early days of cave man. Robert Moog first brought the synthesizer in 1964. May and Smith show you what can be done with those instruments in the hands of someone with a wild imagination.

The Conveniens CD contains nine tracks plus a rather bizarre interview at the end which was not available on the original release. The music on the Conveniens CD is a musical style very familiar in the world today; but upon its original release, music of this type could only be heard as a part of the soundtrack from a science fiction space or alien movie.

Fans of twentieth century composers like Bela Bartok and Igor Stravinsky will find the Conveniens CD a must have for their collection. Fans of sounds and sound effects will find it interesting to try and decipher what sounds are being made and how. Not a CD to just pop into the player at a party, it is none the less a fun and interesting listen.
