Enter San Francisco’s The Exploratorium educational museum and sit down for a science film. The sounds you will hear are those of Jeffrey Alexander. People of all ages, all walks of life, are getting to hear his music everyday. The sounds of science. The sounds ingrained with learning. Of course, there isn’t necessarily a lot of star power in being an educational film score composer, although it is exceptionally cool. "The constant sound shifting gives Alexander's musically metamorphic contribution to the New Weird America cult an edge over the competition." - The WIRE Jeffrey Alexander is best known for his deep ties to the evolving experimental folk scene since the 1990s; from the acid-folk revival his group The Iditarod helped usher in to the lavish press attention Black Forest/Black Sea received to his current role on electronics & guitar in Jackie O Motherfucker. While most from The New Weird America scene embraced the imagery of earth-magick, Alexander’s work has often tied itself to space. His newest solo effort, ‘Wayfinding Beacons From Planet To Planet’, continues this as a work of Celestial Navigation Music. A bit of magic, a lot of humanity, but not be overlooked: a passion for science and discovery. “interstellar gazing…a whirlybird gale that blows compositional constraints wide open.” 8.4/10 Pitchfork >
