DENIS WIZE-CONSCIOUSNESS PROGRAM, LP, 1980, USA




Fathoms deep acid glaze firmly intact, Dennis Weise (here known as Denis Wize) lovingly extracts the nascent tendencies toward the overtly avant-gardeish from the fecund lysergic overgrowth of his debut (posted by moi a few days back) and dramatically foregrounds them along the first side here, strewing kosmiche signifiers along the way to lure the better-living-through-chemistry set into the sublimely sticky psychological venus fly trap of his "Consciousness Program", only to unexpectedly burst into a heavenly 20 minute clouds-parting bliss-morph of Deuter cum Don Robertson proportions across the entire B-side.

Not to take anything away from Jim or others, but I must compliment Vdoandsound for his consistently imaginative, almost synthenesiac (?) prose, describing the context, sound and feel in unpredictable ways.

Bob hopeless-thanks for the super kind words...

Greg-actually, as far as I know, these two LP's are the only one's of his that exist, though two tracks of his are featured on the American Music Compilation a posted around a week back. Also...I hadn't mentioned it before, but it's always really nice to see you commenting here, Greg. VDO are big fans of your work...

Hi, This is Dennis.
My daughter just directed me to these comments. Thanks for the interest in my music. I have done a couple of cd's to look out for. I did "Towards the One" as Doctor Wize, in 1996 (I just saw it on Itunes). I did a couple of (this may piss some off) dance albums "Corps of Discovery", in 1998, also as Doctor Wize, and "Anima Manna" in 2000, as Corps of Discovery. I have a couple of old not so good videos on you tube, I think it's under Doctor_Wize. I have several unpublished albums. I have been working on one for the past two years, that mixes newer electronica with my older elements. I hope to get more out eventually.
Peace & Love
Dennis Weise

Dennis-Man...really great to hear you chime in here! Your work is some of the most formidable of the entire era, for my money. Thanks for all the additional info. I'll have to check out those youtube vids posthaste!
If possible, can you shoot me an email at pantheonbar@gmail.com ? There were a few things
I'd love to discuss with you at further length than can be fit in here...
