Frank Zappa – ‘A pioneer of future music’ A Documentary
I can’t find any short clips from this documentary but I did find the whole video on YouTube.
Frank Zappa was an American music composer, singer, guitarist, song-writer, recording engineer, music producer and film director. He is probably one of the best examples of postmodernism influences on the music industry.
His debut album in 1966 was released under the band ‘Mothers of Invention’ and was called ‘Freak Out!’. It was the first of it’s kind in the way that Frank Zappa combined conventional Rock and Roll with studio recorded (unconventional at the time) sounds to make a music collage.
