New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Douglas Lee, whose debut album Themes For Falling Down Stairs is set for release next Friday October 23, announced today that he will be hosting a listening party two days prior on Wednesday October 21 via Facebook Live at 7pm PST. A dress code will be strictly enforced: Headphones, or decent speaker system and dim lighting. No laptop speakers or phone speakers will be allowed.
Additionally, Lee has released his first video artwork off Themes for the track "Evening Stars of Cyrangoon" via his YouTube page. A second 8mm film for "Montgomery's Trek" will be released shortly.

Themes for Falling Down Stairs is an aural treat that takes the listener to remote place in their imagination. Sounding like a mash-up of Nino Rota, Angelo Badalamenti, Miklos Rosza and Carl Stalling, it's equal parts 40s Film Noir soundtrack, Romani gypsy music, Shibuya-Kei Japanese pop, 60s Italo-western soundtracks and 30s Shanghai cabaret. Fleshed out with postmodern arrangements incorporating electronic noise, live manipulated electro-acoustic sound effects and various exotic devices to produce rich soundscapes, the album sounds as if somewhere in time, the muslin gauze has been pulled off the concussed head of a transfixed toy doll as a child to reveal the world's strangest down and out performance of all time.

The track listings for Themes for Falling Down Stairs is:
Evening Stars of Cyrangoon
Raid On The Purple River
Jeminor's Lost Night In Kakarta
Montgomery's Trek
Zarseilles Lowrider
Emzir's Ark
Jasmine Hover Blossom
Lucky Money Music
You can pre-order the album here before (or after) it's released on Oct. 23rd::

An entirely instrumental album, Themes for Falling Down Stairs is a maximalist sonic inquiry into the potential of multiple acoustic sound sources, combined with asymmetric analog circuitry and displaced natural soundscapes, horizontally and vertically considered through various contradictory historical, sociological and absurdist lenses, to produce an audible cognitive illusion of a euphoric destination, a place rich with detail and immersive imagery. A place to be visited that is distinctly separated in time and space from the actual location of the listener.
