Hi, folks...

Just dropping you a line to let you know that my new web site, Sound and
Chaos, is up and running at:

Drop by and give it a look and a listen.  It's an excerise in minimalism,
but there are links to sound and info on all the racket that I make.  You
can order CDs from the site, too.  In the future, I'll be updating with
more detailed info on the projects and the music. But for now, it's just
the bare necessities.

My latest CD Ye Shall Be Cut Into Many Pieces (a musical journal of a
year's worth of 10 second daily recordings) will be released on March 16,
and I should have online ordering for it up (courtesy of ZeroTec) soon

Thanks.  I'm hope you enjoy the site. Please feel free to email me with any
comments or feedback.

Hi. First and foremost, thanks for continuing to support my debut release
"Chemistry" through airplay and NAV reporting. The CD has enjoyed favoroble
rankings on the NAV Top 100 Chart since its release 5 months ago. Since this
was achieved without the help of a promoter, I feel it is quite an
accomplishment. Afterall, its the music that matters.

On another note, I was interviewed on live radio by Margerie Herman of
WDVR-FM on February 21st. WDVR has agreed to allow me to distribute copies
of the interview to other radio professionals for non-broadcast purposes.

The interview discussion focuses on various topics and issues including: how
I got involved in music, my songwriting methodology and process, the
internet and its effects on music and musicians, my stance on the MP3
issue/controversy, and other interesting topics and issues. In addition, the
first cuts of 2 new songs from my next CD entitled "Progressive Elements"
are included during the interview. You may also listen to cuts from
"Progressive Elements" on the website. A follow up
"Chemistry" CD is slated for release later this year.

If you are a music industry professional and interested in receiving a free
promotional copy of the 60 minute interview on CD, please send me your
current mailing address. We'll mail you a copy free of charge.

Additionally, you may listen to the interview over the internet by linking
to the following websites. - just click on the picture of Microphone - click on "Lo Fi" play link

Thanks again for your support. Each of you make it possible for independent
artists to be heard.

Chemistry ranked #13 on Januarry 2001 NAV Top 100 Airwaves Chart

Just an FYI here.
Some of you might like to know that I added a new track to my site, The track, Landscape Test 1 was inspired by
Steve Roach's Quiet Music and Robert Rich's Sunyata, as well as some of
Carty's work. Some of you that are familiar with my gritty Detroit ambiences
might be glad to know that this experiment is an attempt to clean up my
sound, and spend a little more time doing post-production. While I'm no
Roach or Rich, the music is coming along.

Also, for those of you familiar with the fantastic companion CD to Jim
Brenholts upcoming book, Tracks Across the Universe, Landscape Test 1 is
along the same lines as Lucentia my contribution to that collection.

I hope this email finds you well.

My name is Fredrik and I make music under the name Frock. Some people gave me some feedback on my songs here a while ago - Thanks! and I'm glad you liked my stuff!
   I would really like to hear what everyone else here think of my music as well - two of my songs (RealAudio and MP3) are available at
   I got reviewed in Melody Maker in February last year, and they described my song "The Refugee" as: "Exquisite Simon & Garfunkel 'Sounds Of Silence'-style harmonies abound over crescendos worthy of David Crosby at his most blissfully intoxicated."
   I hope you will like my songs! Fell free to write a comment on my homepage - I'd really appreciate that!

Best regards,

Fredrik Kinbom/Frock
