Joseph A. Peragine has released his first solo album The Acoustic Diaries. A project years in the making, this album is a unique blend of all different styles of performance encased in an acoustic theme. Joseph is intelligent in his form of displaying concepts not only auditory but visually in this 17 track autobiographical CD and 24 page booklet. His innovative approach to playing the guitar and writing lyrics accompanied by a somber/mellow voice, mixed in with his ability to manipulate everyday sounds and noises through sampling, creates a calm acoustic soundtrack of an extremely chaotic universe. From your not so typical perspective and subject matter, The Acoustic Diaries opens new doors of perception to your average listener. It is an 8 year story packed into a 63 min journal of acoustic songs, tied together with a collage of poetry, instrumental music, and everyday noise, creating an audio scenery that gives the listener a mental picture of this movie-like musical masterpiece. The Acoustic Diaries is in a style all it's own. A must buy for the listener in search of something new and inventive.
