Fernando Perdomo Wants You to Know That Noise and Experimental Music Is Crap

Categories: Local Music

Why is Fernando Perdomo screaming about "noise"?
When I woke up at 7:30 a.m. this morning, I crawled out of bed, sucked down some coffee, plopped down in front of my laptop, started digging through my my email inbox, and noticed that Forward Motion Records CEO and Dreaming in Stereo frontman Fernando Perdomo had tagged me (Sean Pajot, the music editor for the Miami New Times) in a note on Facebook.

This is not an uncommon occurrence. It happens almost daily. And I've begun to suspect that Perdomo is a serious social media addict. In any case, like any good self-promoter and scene booster, he will alert me (and a number of other influential music journo types) to almost any Forward Motion- or Fernando-related developments.

But this particular note seemed to have a somewhat nasty edge. It was titled "What is with all the exposure Miami Noise and Experimental music is getting as aposed to Miami's Pop music scene!!"

After reading the 186-word blurb, I concluded that Perdomo's outburst was simply (as I told him in an email earlier today) Fernando being Fernando -- a relentless activist for his particular slice of the Miami music community.

It was a spontaneous expression of frustration over the selection of local non-profit organization Augurari as Miami New Times' Best Local Record Label of 2011, as well as a perceived lack of coverage for his band's new song "Home" and labelmate Vic Kingsley's new album Turn on the Dark.

However, after Crossfade's sister blog County Grind published a post titled Forward Motion's Fernando Perdomo: When the World Googles Miami's Best Music, a Lot of Crap Comes Up, the Forward Motions boss deleted his original Facebook note because "I dont want to be seen in a negative light."

Yet, as we all know, the internet is forever. And it cannot be erased. So here's the note in its entirety:

What is with all the exposure Miami Noise and Experimental music is getting as aposed to Miami's Pop music scene!!

by Fernando Perdomo on Friday, July 8, 2011 at 10:56am

Its Ironic that the local press has not given alot of attention to Miami's Pop scene.. i have seen so much coverage of the avant garde experimental noise scene that in the end makes the artists that take our art seriously look like were wasting our time.. Is this really the genre that Miami is known for now? Churchills music... there is so much amazing pop, soul, alternative, and acoustic music being IGNORED!!! this needs to stop..

I find it funny that some guy can scream in a mic on stage with random backing tracks and its Art!!!

A local songwriter writes a heartfelt song and sings it beautifully with passion and emotion and its concidered passe

so is a band that rehearses.. cares to tune.. and continues the tradition and standards set by generations of rock bands .. and they cant even get a writeup in the local paper...

I know im crying about local publicity.. but when the world googles Miami's best . .. alot of crap comes up... we need to be well represented in the world of music.. ..im just saying ..

The County Grind post characterized Perdomo's note as an "angry screed," which doesn't seem entirely accurate to me. As anyone who knows him will tell you, Fernando has some big theory about the Miami music scene almost every ten minutes. And sometimes he gets a little too caught up in the moment. This Facebook note was one of those moments.

And here is Perdomo's "official response," posted to County Grind and emailed to me after his Facebook note had been deleted. He basically admits to being overcome with "passion":

Official response..

Fernando here..

As a veteran of the Miami music scene.. and one of Miami Music's biggest cheerleaders.. I dont want to be seen in a negative light .. I apologize to anyone offended by my rant ..

I want to make Miami a better place and see someone succeed out of here..

I feel like Miami is like the hidden gem of the music industry.. I feel like saying "THERE IS GOLD UP IN THESE HILLS COME AND GET IT"

about the blog

I did take it down because I am a passionate person who has been a part of the music scene for 13 years now .. and I have seen so much amazing artists who have had their dreams crushed by the sheer lack of support English language pop music gets in this town.

I have been part of many projects and It kills me that people ARE having success but its not being well documented..

I have been running my label (forwardmotionrecords.com) for a year and it has been an amazingly rewarding (and frustrating ) experience... It has been very easy to get my albums reviewed and my artists covered nationwide and internationally.. but it is rare that the albums get reviewed or featured locally...

My mother (who has been fearlessly fighting cancer for 5 years) worked at the Miami Herald 30 years

That publication has very little coverage of the local scene (they even closed their music blog)

I applaud New Times for being the best publication in Miami.. same goes with Beached Miami, and REV Miami ..

but it kills me that Noise music gets all the gold in the press especially when other artists are Breaking Real Ground..

I truly like Sean, Arielle, Lee Zimmerman,Jordan, Steve Imas, and other local writers (who I thanked in my Forward Motion 1 year anniversary video) ..

What I wrote and took down today was a passionate rant from a person who really is wondering if Miami is the only reason why his music has not taken off..

But as my song "Im Not Gonna Move To LA" says

I'M STAYING RIGHT HERE!!!!

So lets make this better!!!

Another point that County Grind seems to have misinterpreted is Perdomo's tagging of "Miami New Times Music Editor Sean Pajot, regular contributor for both Miami New Times and New Times Broward-Palm Beach Arielle Castillo, and Beached Miami's Jordan Melnick."

The implication is that Perdomo was calling out these individuals for ignoring Forward Motion Records, its artists, and even Perdomo. And sure, that's part of it. But more than anything, I think that the Dreaming in Stereo frontman was simply trying to prod these individuals (who have immediate access to the press) into spreading his word.

That said, I'm not defending Perdomo's comments. His criticisms aren't especially true. As mentioned in his "official response," Forward Motion Records has only been operating "for a year." And already, during my ten months as music editor, Forward Motion releases have been reviewed once, twice, three, and four times; his label's artists Arboles Libres were profiled, given the cover of New Times' Miami Music Festival issue, and videotaped for Crossfade; both Dreaming in Stereo's October 27 Love Hate gig and February 20 album release were duly documented; award-winning songwriter and Forward Motion signee Jorge Moreno received a 2457-word write-up; and Perdomo himself has been the subject of a long blog piece on local music -- not to mention writing SXSW coverage for Crossfade.

So, c'mon, is Perdomo, Forward Motion, and pop really being ignored? Is "noise and Experimental music" getting all the exposure? Are Miami's "artists that take [their] art seriously ... wasting [their] time"?

No. Fernando's a good guy with honest intentions. But his "passion" was too hot this time. And he was wrong.

There so many things wrong with all of this I'd hate to go over every single thing...but I just wanted to throw my two cents in to mention that "scenes" are often just media creations and have little to do with the actual music its representing. It's a combination of many elements. Money is a big one. For example, elements of the CIA bankrolled the creation of scenes like the Laurel Canyon one. It wasn't the great songs that made a scene (which magically happened overnight, complete with national attention and hit singles). Bitchin' will not create one, that's for sure. As far as Miami's music scene, its amazing that New Times is even covering any aspect of it. This wasn't really happening for a while. At the same time local press does more for an artists' ego than anything else, and is not essential to your success.

My advice is to not be afraid to sell 5,000 CDs on BandCamp, or from the back of your van -- wherever and however. If thats not working out, then keep improving and be sure to have a strategy and realistic goals. The internet does wonders for indie artists, but it also makes virtually anyone an indie artist. Unfortunately, this means no room for weaknesses. On the flip side, if its mainstream success you want (i.e. be mediocre and have fame)  then you have to be an occultist puppet for whom it doesn't even matter if you sell units because your owners have all the money they need already, they just want to influence and further dumb down culture. Side rant, excuse me.

The big issue here is that noise/experimental music when bad is horrid and hard to ignore.  Pop when bad can easily be tuned out as background chatter.

A broad sweeping generalization, I think most could say the same for the 'mainstream accepteded things out there, any mans crap is another's treasure. Many folks accepting the noise etc and 'fringy' might be jaded and tired by the 'safely acceptible' form factor of music. just a thought, no big deal...............

Im sorry for trashing Noise/Experimental music... I fucked up.. thats why i took down the rant minutes after posting it .. but it was already copied and put on New Times for the world to see that I am a human that makes mistakes.. I did not know what I was talking about .. Im a life long fan of King Crimson, Adrian Belew, Brian Eno, Can, and other experimental bands.. I bet there were people saying .. " Eno cant play keyboards and makes crap music with no melody" .back then . and I would be a naysayer of his or her opinion because Eno  makes beautiful music... Funny enough I have Squelched before at Churchills!!!!  and I consider Rat  Bastard a friend  so... there it  is.. my first controversy... so punk for a pop guy

Randy Singer is one of two people who is working the hardest for local singer songwriters.. the other is Chrystal Hartigan....    Randy does an amazing job programming the music at Van Dyke Cafe.. and he really cares about the quality of the music there.. he puts on great shows and makes sure people get paid and fed...

also..

Randy  Singer and Eric Garcia are the 2 best harmonica players in town... you guys need to bury the hatchet... Id love to hear you guys trade solos on one of my tunes......

this whole argument is really ignorant.. someone who is a "songwriter" should write songs because it is a creatively fulfilling process, someone who puts out other peoples records should do so because they love and have faith in the music they are putting out. arguing about something petty like getting local press coverage doesn't at all seem like a necessary effort to someone who is making/putting out music for the right reasons. just as well, it doesn't seem necessary to me for the newtimes to try and embarass people with their publication.. let's all just appreciate creativity in general and not make mutual fools out of eachother.

This has been an amazing inspiring experience... ugly?  YES  Beautiful?  Yes.. Hurtful? Yes  Mindblowing? Hell Yeah... so.. on that note.. Go to Forwardmotionrecords.com  Im sure you will find some great stuff in there... and Dreaminginstereo.net   have fun everyone.. Im gonna go back to producing Andy Pratt.. Ta Ta...

By the way..

The two best harmonica players I have ever heard are in the comments section... and you guys need to kiss and make up... and work together... I love Randy.. I love Eric...  LOVE is great..

fernando - play good music and you will get some exposure.  i have seen you a few times (always when you play with other people) and i always come away less than impressed.  king bee, juke, manchild (when they were back for a spell) are all head and shoulders better music to my ears.  of course music is subjective and anyone that is playing and writing music is impressive to a degree but i see nothing particularly original or compelling in the music you play.  stop complaining that other people get more attention and write music worthy of attention.

although fernando's comments were nothing short of ignorant (it is called "pop" music for a reason....you and what you do has gotten more than enough coverage....other genres deserve exposure too,,,can a nigga get a tabledance???)...and i'm sure that fernando realizes that and wasn't thinking when he was writing what he did.but those of you who are piling on and being mean under these little blog-pseudonyms are not helping at all. at least fernando had the balls to put his name on what he wrote (um, does taking it down shortly after count?)...even a douchebag like randy singer posted his name after his dumb little comment....see?... the point is, that it's no one's self-appointed job to decide what is music and what gets covered. the least of all someone with a vested interest in the music scene...but i commend him for (kind of) standing by his words. i think that the local media spreads the wealth pretty good. obviously, these are humans writing and there will be preferences.i'm just actually impressed that so many people care around here.

see ya at a show,

relax everyone.........fernando is very open minded about music. He just mis spoke...i do not think he hates experimental.......he was just bemoaning the lack of attention paid to other venues and labels, and musicians that are making more songwriter style music. And I agree with Fernando. I do not like his choice of words but we all get heated sometimes and over state things. Please.......listen carefully.....there is more to miami than DJ's and experimental music. thank you,

Ah, facebook drama at it's best. In all honesty, the only reason I'm responding to this is because I stumbled across it and for some reason, I decided to read it.  As a music fan AND as a fan of journalism, this is not the kind of thing I want to read.  Such pettiness, and seemingly a great deal of  animosity on both parts (?).  I am guilty of not reading all of the links of the back-and-forth, blah, blah, etc, because quite frankly, I was curious and then I got bored and felt it was a waste of my time.  I'm posting a comment because I am a music fan.  This is not what music is about.  I read enough to get the jest of the "situation."  It seems Mr. Perdomo is frustrated that many deserving local talents don't receive the publicity they deserve.  But then again, most talented musicians in today's world don't get the credit they deserve because the music industry has gone down the drain in general.  So I guess it's not exactly fair to blame the "local" press for that.  I'm sure they cover whatever generates readers, which is (somewhat) understandable.  It would be nice if the local Miami press would surpass the musical idiocracy of the rest of the nation, but let's be realistic here....  And it seems Mr. Perdomo's rant was taken as a somewhat personal attack.  We have many talented musicians down here; Mr. Perdomo being one of them.  It just baffles me that a personal facebook rant made local "music news" in a sense.  This is likely one of the reasons people are turned-off by the Miami music scene (and Miami scene in general).  I applaud Mr. Perdomo's endeavors as well as the numerous other talented local musicians we have down here for adhering to what they believe in and doing what they do best.  There is nothing wrong with voicing your opinion, but there is something to be said for professionalism....and I am not singling anyone one out with that comment.  That comment is directed to all parties.  My personalsuggestion to everyone is just to concentrate on the positives and focus on your goals....don't get caught up in pettiness; it's a waste of time and it will only hold you back and bring you down...

Regarding Forward Motion Records and the local music scene:  I always felt that each band and artist (no matter what their genre was) had it's own place in the local scene. It was up to each one to perfect their craft, by focusing on what they could control. Whether it was their songwriting, live shows, recorded albums or self marketing, an artist needs to be constantly growing in all phases of their career. I always believed that good work would eventually get it's proper recognition on some level. If a local band could consistently draw 200 people to a show, there was a reason for that. And when you have a few artists in one scene that can reach that level, more clubs are motivated to try live music. You would see lots of bands coming out to support each other and more journalists will take note as a true "scene" develops. If a band or artist writes and records a great song or album, it will have a chance to be noticed. If they have an amazing live show, the word would get around. There are a few other factors as well, especially now in the Internet age of music, and stores like Sweat & Radioactive play a big role in bringing the scene together. I would say that since major labels are pretty much history as far as "artist development" is concerned, there is a HUGE opportunity for labels like Forward Motion Records and many others to fill that void. What I would just say to Fernando is to stay true to what you are doing and continue building on the great first year of your label. Keep your eye on the prize and don't spend time reading blogs and "letters to the editor". Your time is much wiser spent on your work, so STAY focused....and never rely on anyone else to validate what you do. I go back a long way in the Miami music scene and have never seen anyone make such an impact in just their first year. There are a lot of artists here in South Florida who are very grateful for the opportunity you have given them.

this kind of myopic, all-or-nothing attitude has always bugged me. yes, there are some great singer/songwriter types down here - but there are also many shitty ones. just because someone writes heartfelt songs and knows how to properly tune a guitar doesn't necessarily mean they're any good. just as screaming into a microphone at full volume doesn't automatically mean you're crap. art is in the ear of the beholder...

I learned a lot today. I learned that Dreaming in Stereo is a band in Miami. I learned that there a dozen local indie labels here. I learned that there are plenty of local music scene veterans aside from AlukarD. I learned that tone def people who scream into a microphone get coverage. I learned that people care about the scene. I learned that people are passionate. I learned that Arboles Libres was used as a reference against Perdomo in this article cause they got on the cover of Miami New Times. I learned that it was mainly for a music festival which was bashed... well not entirely... I learned that the new times stage was praised.. by the new times. I learned that Rachel Goodrich got a Miami New Times cover too. I learned that she left to Los Angeles anyways. I learned that dissing other bands isn't exactly good light to have on yourself... I learned that we as artist should focus less on ourselves as in competition, but mainly as all in the same fight to get the spotlight. But what I've mainly learned was that calling out the local press gets you the attention you might need. So in other words.. Rave and rant.. Don't bottle in your dissatisfaction. This scene shouldn't be "SOPHISTICATED". The reasonable person never gets anywhere.. It's the UNREASONABLE people who pave way into something bigger. It's the person who refuses to accept things the way they are that gives light on issues we must attend to. So ramble on.....

I've hated that douche for a good 8 years now. He and his projects deserve all the lack of success that they've received. Next time, just ignore him, eventually he'll go away and be the mediocre sideman that he is destined to be.

He's not passionate about the scene, he's passionate about his project... and will knock whoever he can to "shine." He's full of himself. Shit talks any band that's not signed to his "label" and knocks people after smiling at them the minute they walk out of the room with his stench smell of arrogance. Or is that his BO? This guy isn't a pioneer of any sorts. He's a kiss ass when his self-interest is at stake and a trash talker the minute you disagree with him. I'd be more grateful. Don't piss off the press that gives you more credit than you deserve. Not cool.

Apology accepted. Just please, never reference yourself as 'punk' again, as I'm pretty sure you look down on us and our music as sub-par musicianship and songwriting. 

You could learn a thing or two from the local punk scene though. We never expected, or cared, about local media coverage, or gaining notoriety at any level. Yet most of the local punk bands have a great time playing for each other and accept that the best you can realistically expect from a musical career is fond memories, lasting friendships, traveling to new cities and countries, and some level of alcohol addiction. 

Glory days of rock and roll are over, dead and buried, try and be fulfilled with putting out records you believe in, and enjoying your time on stage, even if its in front of the bartender, the booze bucket who's overstayed happy hour, and his coke dealer.  Because long after we're gone the records are what's left behind to document our lives and musically history.

It may be your love of chubby Cubans that's jaded your viewpoint here, because from an objective point of view it seems pretty clear that there are plenty of  fools here (most seemingly Perdomo himself using different pseudonyms most likely) but it was after all Fernando Perdomo himself who started all this "embarrassing other people" trash talking. Not the New Times. Pajot did their job. They have every right to speak up for themselves and the local art/noise-music performers if Perdomo (or anyone for that matter) is stupid enough to tag journalists and other artists in his "passionate" fits of morning jealousy. This is not the first time this Dreaming In Stereo chubby Cuban has engaged in hate-rants. He's all over YouTube doing the same thing. He insults whines cries and complains like a giant hirsute baby about any music that is either "not his own" or "he doesn't like" (meaning he doesn't understand it) -- never for a minute realizing that music like all art is subjective and its value cannot possibly be qualified. He might benefit greatly from taking the sage advice you so eloquently offer up in your comment. Case in point: according to the article above, Perdomo STARTED his day by "arguing about something petty like getting local press coverage" or in his case his NOT getting enough press coverage. Exactly what you suggest readers not to do. And this is how he started his day? That is very sad. This story has all the makings of a serious mental headcase with an unlikely future of success in anything. If this clown had "love or faith in the music he is making" as you describe, he would not be such a sycophant, not be such an insincere and fork-tongued kiss-ass, and not be so desperate for attention or validation from others. One gets the idea from Perdomo's lurid spastic out of tune on-stage gyrations during live shows that he cares not about the music he is making as much as gaining attention for himself. Seemingly from anyone who happens to be in the audience. Even if that means over-stepping his boundaries with his tom foolery and ruining what might be good music coming from the others sharing the stage with him. This is the talk of the town about Fernando and has been for years. This is why he is forced to release his own music. What serious record label would invest in this guy? How he is still getting press coverage at all is stupefying. But it does go to show that Pajot is telling the truth and being more than fair. If an overweight aging goon-like wannabe such as Perdomo can get press coverage simply by harassing the hell out of the media as he does, then he should NOT be complaining that "the local SoFlo music media is biased." On the contrary. They are obviously being quite charitable. Or perhaps they hope he'll go away if they throw him a few sentences. Anyone want to take a stab at his annoying and constant onslaught of sickening self promotion? If he is anything, Perdomo is the SPAM KING of Miami music. Your comments were good. And people here in Miami would do well to hear you out. But anyone who knows Fernando knows that there is no way in hell he can practice what you preach, let alone understand it. A talent on the guitar who cannot leave well enough alone and now wants to be a front-man is almost always someone who has little to no self-esteem and therefore could not possibly "find fulfillment from the creative process" as you recommend. Thank you Sean Pajot. This piece and its ensuing backlash was long overdue. Perdomo needs to grow up. Maybe there is good music in him somewhere. But his personality leaves no room for anyone to see or hear it.

I AGREE with eric garcia.......(except the douche bag remark....)-- Eric had the guts to put his name on the post, as I have done. I am amazed at the latest postings vilifying Fernando....so much anger, so much crucifixion for a man who is not perfect just like all of us...and apologized for his ONE remark....yes, he can be rude as we all can be....and he is not the best singer as are most of us....but at least he is trying to put miami on the map. I have done dozens of sessions with him and he is an excellent sideman.

The point i want to make right now IS A CHALLENGE TO ALL THOSE WHO POST NEGATIVE REMARKS ON FERNANDO...POST YOUR NAMES!!!!!!!! DO NOT THROW ROCKS FROM BEHIND your walls......do you do it so that you can avoid any type of criticism on yourself that you so love to heap heartlessly on a man who is trying and achieving more than most? REVEAL who you are.

To cal him a failure at 40 is so mean....there are lots of people who do not hit their stride until 50....And i hope that my screed her does not create a votex of hate mail about me...please ......let us be civil here. thank you, randy singer

Dear member of the international music media,

Please stop giving so much attention to hacks like Miles Davis,Ornette Coleman and Sun-Ra. And just because a bunch of guys in Chicago wear costumes and make noise for a bunch of people on heroin, it doesn't make them an "art ensemble". You are not giving us talented musicians who take ourselves seriously the credit we deserve.

Actually "lack of success" describes Fernando Perdomo quite perfectly in terms of his so called "music career" (a forty-something year old who still lives with their mother is usually a dead give-away). Unfortunately the most successful projects he has been associated with such as Christian Castro, Ed Hale and Transcendence, Jorge Moreno are all successful acts. Yet they all now perform sans Perdomo. As a sideman he always appears to be the weakest link in the chain on stage, both in terms of execution and appearance -- which might explain why. His own "band" as you call it is not worth even mentioning here. But more overtly should be the simple fact that the super talented and successful are pursued by the media; it is not the other way around -- successful artists don't send daily email requests to the media such as what S. Pajot claims in his article above. This entire thread is a testament to if nothing else the desperation Perdomo has to be successful versus his reality.
