IDIOGLOSSIA, a CD of sounds found and created, marks Chris Burke's first effort under his own name. He originally came to notice in the mid-1980s with his home-recorded Bam-Bam tapes, a series comprised of a wide variety of musical styles issued under the names of fictitious artists, which were aired extensively over college radio to great response.
Elements from the Bam-Bam tapes, along with digital sampling, sound collage and electronic and acoustic instruments collide for a program of songs and pieces that make IDIOGLOSSIA one of the most musical and intriguing discs featuring sampling techniques.

The music ranges from choppy, complex rhythms to boisterous big-band hommages to electronic dance music. IDIOGLOSSIA's songs blend into each other in a style reminiscent of 60s psychedelia and 70s concept albums. Sounds and voices from television and radio often provide a fractured narration from the collective unconscious. And dig Burke's use of Ray Milland's monolog from X; THE MAN WITH THE X-RAY EYES in his tune WORLD OF THE DECEPTIKONS. A fascinating journey through a melange of musical styles that is sure to appeal.
