Lounge music from the Vatican gay bar. Fuck the beautiful people.
Years before the White Stripes popularized the guitar/drum duo, JMS was half of the guitar/drum duo Medicine Hat. The duo later changed its name to Batwanger and eventually disbanded for religious reasons. JMS subsequently found his musical calling in the burgeoning field of computerized music.
JMS' first commercial release, "Music For Sophisticated Schizophrenics" was a noted pick by Electronic Musician Magazine in its weekly newsletter.
'Unapologetically strange and jarring...a captivating and enigmatic soundscape of obscure lounge music that will set your five senses alight.'
(Brandon Minia, 24OurMusic)
'...[A] restless compositional philosophy that will not resonate with listeners expecting concise, neatly packaged musical content.'
(Evan Crandell, 24OurMusic)
'...[C]ontemporary music for the bizarre at heart. Featuring both conventional and atypical instrumentation and composition techniques, [his] electronica and classical works operate in a style unlike any other. Songs present everything from momentous, Philip Glass-like sweeps to old-school MIDI music and Baroque-era voice leading and structure. For J.M. Smig, anything goes!'
(Electronic Musician newsletter)
