Antenna 10 is Danny Womack aka Bog Thermaforce Born 1967 in Denver; Danny would like you to think he is Bog Thermaforce from the planet OGLE-TR-56b. When he sits behind his panel of computers, crappy synths and 1950s EICO 378 sound generator, he blames his obsession with audio recording on a simple tape recorder he received as a Christmas gift at age 11. He progressed into building his own recording studio in his parent’s basement at age of 13 using anything available. He synched tracks from several play decks by slowing the cassette reels with his finger while simultaneously laying a vocal track, and so began his long unexpected journey into experimental music. He began his first punk band as a teenager in 1984 and played in dozens of live Denver projects for the next 2-plus decades. Having many thousands of songs written and recorded, Womack is prolific to say the least. But his main objective all along the way has been simply to record the songs he wishes he could walk into a record store and buy but can never find, and to share them with his closest friends. When not in a band, Womack assisted four notable artists, broadening his own vision of the art world. Today he has meshed his audio with visuals utilizing digital video. Womack focuses on his latest achievement the TFAI-1 (Thermaforce Flash Audio Interface) in which by the use of Macromedia Flash, Womack has taken an image of an IBM super computer console and loaded his own samples, that can be trigger from anywhere in the world via the internet and his website https://www.tradebit.com. This allows performances around the world while traveling with minimal amounts of equipment. With the use of an airport or WiFi, others are even able to join select performances with their laptops triggering sounds from the website. Antenna 10 is adventurous thinking music utilizing the full spectrum of audio capabilities, yet it possesses the properties of a classical piece with mellow hypnotizing lulls growing to climactic plateaus. There are obvious similarities to gospel music in the repetitiveness and the building of the music into a feverous pitch. There are also deep-rooted emotional pleasantries that manage to accurately reflect the wonder and danger of mans continuing quest to conquer the unknown on earth and in space. And at this point it looks as though Womack, or Bog Thermaforce will continue his own quest in conquering the mysteries and limitations of his visions.
