Finders Keepers presents DENIS WISE's Wize Music, one of the most unique and unlikely exponents of the highly collectible genres of ambient electronics, experimental tape-music and PINA (Private Issue New Age). This English-born Jamaican-raised sound designer, artist and existentialist furrowed his own unblinkered path through lesser-charted electronic fields for many moons before eventually teaming up with Bill Laswell (with Material) and Daevid Allen in New York to bring self-taught synthesis to Gong during their most oblique periods. Creating two impossibly rare self-pressed vinyl LPs of conceptual inner-visionary outer-galactic angular tonal-dronal alien-art soundscapes in the process, the man known under figure shifting guises such as Dennis Wise/Denis Weise/Dr. Wise combined a culture of sound system circuitry and radiophonic trickery adding teapot poetry and sci-fidelity future-folk to his magnetic mesh. Presented here as the first ever dedicated Wize Music collection, this record combines compositions spanning 1979-1984 in both a solo capacity as well as small-group projects featuring members of the EMERALD WEB band. Imagine a comic book where a Funkenstein monster called "Laraaji-Scratch Perry" invaded your record shelf while Komendarek and Holger Czukay kept lookout. Dr. Dennis might be the only one Wise enough to outsmart all of them with his powerful amorphous anesthetic.
