So just who is Funk Van Gogh????

   C + P City Walls Music 2000

His  name was Funk (which of course means 'Radio' in the gutteral Low German of his parents).

  Born plain Diirjck Van Vroouweedenfrouwde, he decided to reinvent himself  as Funk Van Gogh after an interesting encounter with a battery.

  She was dressed in the tightly-corseted coquetry  of deserted train stations at midnight; her breath misty in the glinting light from rain-slick cobbles, her hair smoky with the mournful piping of the shunting engines....

  Later, he found himself behind a synthesiser in the industrial fundament of The Greater Europe.

It was from this that his unique sound emerged.

Review

An Elephant Dream…/Frozen Alps Remix) - Funk Van Gogh (Down Tempo/Ambient)

Is this another spelling mistake?  An avant-garde outré piece that owes more to conceptual rather than musical form.  For 99.9% of you, this will seem like a load of randomly arranged samples that sound crap.  However, for Funk Van Gogh and me, it is a daring exploration into eJay to prove that it's an extremely versatile tool for translating abstract ideas into an aural rather than written medium.  I found this inspiring, both in thought and execution.  Good

The "The Last Whale Train" is NOT pop music ... nor is it designed to be fun ... Whaling is a Genocide ... Whaling is an extinction program that itself needs to be made extinct!
