If I adjust this piece from the A key one full octave up (-170+1200cts)
then it really sounds more like a Zappa synclavier piece, and imo it would nicely compare to those that have made it onto FZMTMOP.
Try it out for yourself ...

I did so, flambay— and yes, Lakshi is quite startling, and very Zappaesque, at this increased speed.

Adjusting tempo -170+1200cts without pitch bend also produces interesting results.

That's what I actually meant (no pitch bend suggested)

-170 cts means: adjusted down to the key of A,
the additional +1200cts meaning an octave upwards from there.

Anyway, this thread is now moved to FZ Unreleased/Outtakes.

Let the debate continue ... blahblah blahblah

I've listened to it, and to me it's 100% Frank Zappa, without any doubt!
Like I've said to PRF, if it's not Zappa, then we must contact this guy, because he's a genius! Wink

Thank you, for this offer, PRF! hug

Fantastic find - real or not it's jolly catchy and really, really makes one yearn for and wonder just what's keeping Dance Me This away for so long...

I can't argue the finer points of Zappa composition or relative pitch with the awesome people on this site. I do, however, like this piece and hear certain similarities with FZ's synclavier releases. There are parts, too, which remind me of Steve Vai's version of "Bangkok" (especially from around 0:43 - 1:07 & 2:18 - 2:38).

Overall, though, it feels more like an early face without the eyebrows. Mr. Potato Head with only a nose, perhaps. An early experiment, in other words.

By and large it feels Franky to me. It just doesn't feel finished.

I sure do appreciate the cool discussions youse guys gets into around here!

It's definitely Zappa-influenced, but there's no way it's Frank. If you listen to the sonic palette of Jazz From Hell and Civ III, and even Resolver + Brutality, then listen to this, it's just totally different. This is electronic music, but it probably wasn't created on a Synclavier. It sounds like a much more traditional synthesizer.

Is it alright if I shut my suitcase off?

Im torn between both arguments. On one side, it feels like FZ, just an unfinished piece. On the other, it doesnt sound like his construction at all...

Until we have proof in stone, Im going with an unfinished FZ piece.

i am not very into technical questions but about DAT tape i remember one time ago someone played a 44000khz recording back with 48000 (or was it the opposite) and had the speed changed.
best greetings

On the "is it or isn't it" front, I have no idea, but it's worth noting in passing that "Basement Music #1" doesn't sound too much like Frank either...
