Charles Bobuck composed for The Residents until 2016. The Residents had all but stopped making albums after 2008 but Bobuck kept doing what he always did, so he made Charles Bobuck albums instead of Residents albums.
Some of his favorites are listed below, plus a book he published in 2016, as well as info on future plans.

CHARLES BOBUCK Missing Soldiers - The Favorite Songs Of Clara Barton
CD album | gg236

Re-issue of a previously download only compilation through the Charles Bobuck web page. The third TOOK release and therefore limited to 300 copies and available only through our mail order. These MIDI arrangements started out in 2001 as sketches for a proposed Residents album based on The American Civil War. The rather un-sexy project did not get encouragement from European partners because the war meant little outside of the United States and is most prominently a part of history in the deep South. The project was abandoned.

Charles Bobuck became visible about the same time The Residents felt the pinch of the popularity of free downloading. They, like many bands, shifted their energy toward live performance. However, Mr. Bobuck did not like touring. He preferred making albums. So he quit touring and made albums instead. Logical.

THIS is a collection of music from the many “underground” albums he independently recorded between 2009 and 2016, as well as, pieces he wrote under the nom de plume of Sonidos de la Noche, Chuck, and The Residents during those same years.

What was right about Grandpa was his love of jazz, and what was left of Grandpa was his collection of 78s. Left to me, at least. He was the one who first pulled earphones over my six year old head while mumbling, "Listen to this." The headphones smelled like cigarettes. The sound, however, immediately flushed Disney tunes from my young brain.

Grandpa Charles would not think this album jazz. But I do.

AUDIO CD - AVAILABLE IN THE USA @ MVD @ AMAZON - DD @ BANDCAMP

Music originally written for the performance MUSH-ROOM (2013) by Grace Ellen Barkey & Needcompany (a Belgian theatre/dance company).

Technically by
The Residents, it is a project that I wrote working with Grace Barkey. I am quite proud of how it turned out so wanted to include it here.

ROMAN DE LA ROSE

AUDIO CD - AVAILABLE IN THE USA @ MVD - WORLD @ AMAZON - DD @ ITUNES

I am a married man. I married a guy named Roman a really long time ago. Roman has never been a fan of my music. That has not been a problem, but I thought I would enjoy trying to write something for Roman, something that is both personal and public.

I generally do not believe in public displays of affection once one is over the age of 16. But here it is. The gesture of an old man appreciating his life.

—- Charles Bobuck


CODGERS ON THE MOON

CD
AUDIO CD - AVAILABLE IN THE USA @ MVD - WORLD @ AMAZON - DD @ ITUNES

This collection of eleven contraptions - "contraptions" seems like a better description than compositions - all share a number of things in common. First off… none are particularly dramatic, clever or ironic. Maybe a tiny bit of soaring, but for the most part, it is a series of tuned percussive patterns laid on top of each other, audio moiré. They take their beauty in a type of minimalism. So perhaps it is akin to sitting on the ground and inspecting nature immediately around you .

—— Charles Bobuck


COOCHIE BRAKE

AUDIO CD - AVAILABLE IN THE USA @ MVD - WORLD @ AMAZON - DD @ ITUNES

Technically an album by Sonidos de la Noche, I wrote this after getting inspired by hearing Dr. John's album, Gris Gris.

A million years ago, a big rock fell out of the sky and landed right in the middle of Louisiana. Well, it wasn't Louisiana at that time. But that rock fell, and it hit hard making a giant dent. It gradually filled in but no matter what, it still left a dent. And that dent held just enough water that it became a primeval swamp known as Coochie Brake.

The dark atmosphere is captured in the music found on this disc.
