“Baroque or Odd” by DJ&M – A Joxfield ProjeX Associate



















“Baroque or Odd” by DJ&M – A Joxfield ProjeX Associate
In 1968 Janne & Stefan of Joxfield ProjeX had made music together for a couple of years as DJ&M, short for DonnoJanne & Maecs. Simple music just like kids do, but sometimes with an experimental touch. Even though they didn’t have any tape recorders until autumn 1969 they composed and organized albums as if it was for real. Having heard The Beatles’ self-titled “White Album” they were inspired by the concept of doing a double album, which they thus also did. Between December 1968 and January 1969, they wrote the 30 songs that became the DJ&M “virtual” double album “Baroque or Odd”. To override The Beatles DJ&M added a four track EP to the double LP. Cover art and various inserts were made in two copies, one each, as usual, but no recording. As usual. Janne had just turned 15, Stefan had four months left before his 15th birthday. Just kids.
As The Beatles’ “White Album” celebrated it’s 50th anniversary November 22 2018 the idea came up of making a constructive and creative interpretation of the 34 songs of “Baroque or Odd”. The music had been written down in a self-invented note system where you could see which note it was, but not its value. You had to memorize the specific melodies.  
Sheets for 32 of the 34 songs was found in a closet. Most of the melodies were forgotten, but by reading and playing the self-invented note system various parts of the songs could be remembered, recovered and become the starting point of the interpretations of the songs. One of the songs, “Jar”, was a description of a cut-up sampled piece and this way of making music became inspiration for the two lost songs on the album.
Between late November 2018 and January 2019 recordings, mixing and masters were done. 41 tunes in 85 minutes (the four track EP became five, the last song of the album is in seven parts, all in all 41 tracks). A double LP with an EP. Some kind of progressive pop. It will at least see the light as a digital release in February 2019, 50 years after its original appearance. And then let’s see what the future brings with it…
The track presented here are actually two, back to back, “I’m Bach” (0.32) and “Friendship” (3.40), track 4 & 5 of Side B.
Enjoy!

DJ&M - THE BAROQUE OR ODD PROJECT



















Inspired by The Beatles' White Album release November 1968, DJ&M (a.k.a. Donnojanne & Maecs, much later to become Joxfield ProjeX) wrote an album consisting of 30 songs, meant to be spread over 4 sides of a double LP. This was completed in February 1969. 
The title of that album should be ”Baroque Or Odd”. 
Of course it wasn't recorded. Having no studio or money at all and being super-amateurish 14 – 15 years old kids it was nothing to talk about. It never happened.
But, who knows, maybe a newly recorded interpretation of the whole ”Baroque Or Odd” album may show up 2019, some 50 years since the last Donnojanne & Maecs activities.
Stay tuned!

Uncle Joxfield Autumn 1968

















50 years ago, autumn 1968, this pre-Joxfield ProjeX Donnojanne & Maecs tune was written. Not only being the legend of our worst tune ever (among many others), but also being the inspiration for our band name when we after a 30 years intermission took up our music activities again in 2005 with the one rule: No nostalgia or old shit, only new stuff!

Joxfield ProjeX Live Exploration 3












In September the avant-whatever duo Joxfield ProjeX will get together at C Anna for some Live Exploration 3 sessions. This means training, practicing, rehearsal, discussions, creative quarels, argumentations, anything that brings the process forward with the goal to find out if we have anything we could bring into an upcoming live situation. The future may arrive.
