When Sacred Bones first began their MORT GARSON reissue project in 2019 with a proper reissue of 'Plantasia', the GARSON-naissance began in earnest. Soon after, you could hear MORT GARSON and his Moogs bubbling up on TV shows, documentaries, podcasts, hip-hop tracks, or anywhere else, the man a cultural phenomenon once more. Like a perennial that returns with each new spring, the MORT GARSON archives have brought to bear yet another awe-inspiring bloom. 'Journey to the Moon and Beyond' finds even more new facets to the man’s sound. There’s the soundtrack to the 1974 blaxploitation film Black Eye (starring Fred Williamson) alongside some newly unearthed music for advertising. Just as regal is “Zoos of the World,” where GARSON soundtracks the wild, preening, slumbering animals from a 1970 National Geographic special of the same name. The mind reels at just what project would have yielded a scintillating title like “Western Dragon,” but these three selections were found on tapes in the archive with no further information. Maybe at the time it scanned as crass and opportunistic for Garson to apply his keyboards to subjects like astrological signs, the occult, hippiedom, houseplants, or the moon landing. But more than most other electronic music pioneers of his ilk, GARSON foresaw the integration of such electronics into our daily lives, how they would allow us to engage with the world.
