What is this place? Who is Axel Mundi?

(Write to: axel@axelmundi.com)


 Axel Mundi Music began in 2008. Since then almost 30 albums have appeared under the name Axel Mundi, along with several side projects under different band names (including The West Edge Trio and Plastic Rubber Band). He is also a writer responsible for several books. He recently said this about himself:

"I am an old hippie who grew up in the 1960s in Southern California, Texas, and Utah, playing clarinet in school while listening to the Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, Jethro Tull, Bob Dylan, Iron Butterfly, Cream, Procol Harum, Deep Purple, Donovan, Frank Zappa, and every other person or group that was played on FM Radio. In those days, that meant ANYTHING.

When I began playing bass clarinet in my late 30s, in Seattle, it was for the purpose of putting myself and other people into a trance. Because of this activity I became a founder of the trance-rock trio Diamond Fist Werny, which flourished in Seattle during the Grunge years, the 1990s. Yes, I amplified my bass clarinet and put it through effects. We played loud.

After that ended I put the clarinets away and started making my own version of progressive rock with a Yamaha keyboard and a Tascam 8-track digital Porta-Studio. It became my intention to compose and record psychedelic music according to my definition of the term. This meant, and still means: progressive, fusion, folk, acid, jazz, acid jazz, vocal, instrumental, 60s-inspired music.

To paraphrase Hemingway, every album is a new beginning, where I try to do something that has never been done, or to do better what others have tried and failed. By the way, I almost cut my hair the other day, but I didn't. I feel like I owe it to someone."

Axel's music and books are for sale here. His music is also at CD Baby, Amazon, and most of the download sites. His books can be found at CreateSpace and Amazon.
