RECALL PRESENTS FRIVOLOUS
LIFE CLUB, TORINO
THE ARTIST | FRIVOLOUS
If you want to understand Frivolous – aka Daniel Gardner – imagine if Bob Dylan went really electric and started making four‐four beats, or if Tom Waits met and caught sparks off the techno futurism of Juan Atkins and Derrick May. Imagine, if you can, a fusion of punk, rave, jazz, minimal, Eastern European folk music, classic house and swinging 60s soundtracks fuelled by the a passionate love for found sounds and eccentric experimentation.
Daniel Gardner, born thirty years ago on the west coast of Canada, grew up studying classical music and listening to his mom sing in the choir and his daddy holler the blues. He fell in love with punk but when his rough‐neck friends snubbed rave he snuck out to parties anyway, hypnotized by the beats. He found a spot in his room where the radio tuned in a local university station that played British acid house and experimental German music. Like a magpie, he picked up every shiny bit of sound he could find, hoarding it in his mind as he taught himself to DJ.
