About Artist

Failed2Chart is a recording pseudonym & nome de plume for the solo music projects of A. Summerfield, an independent, unknown, unsigned, keyboard playing bassist & multi-instrumentalist, unencumbered by age, endorsements or music credentials. Failed2Chart infuses electric & acoustic instrumentation with electronics, found objects, field recordings, samples, loops, pre-arranged percussion, more loops, sonic manipulation & sequencing.


F2C Logo: a faded grainy image of a vintage audio reel to reel tape recorder serves as the Failed2Chart graphic icon - outdated but fully functional, dependable, faithful, no missing parts, lights still on, wheels still turn, analog based, chipless & ghost-free. Although it's most useful days have expired & it's remaining usable days are numbered, it still delivers decent fidelity - forever pulling a thin strip of plastic at a fixed speed past a slightly rusted magnet.


Instruments played by F2C include: Big synthesizers, little synthesizers, electric piano, organ, electric & acoustic bass guitars, electric & acoustic six and twelve string guitars, electric alto kalimba, electric slide mandolin & miscellaneous percussion - including, but not limited to: baby rattle, beer bottle, bongos, box-o-rocks, cabasa, clave, djembe, finger snaps & hand claps, maracas, ratchet, spark & tube shakers, tambourine, trash can lid, triangle, voice, vocal treatments, washboard & wood block. (No shoestrings were used or harmed in the making of this album).


For best results: Listen with high quality headphones at a volume high enough to keep the outside world out.
