Boobie Stoops

The one-off project “On the Line” by Boobie Stoops features the dynamic and humorous lyricism of Byron Johnson in outrageous flow as his alter-ego Boobie Stoops and the ferociously nimble guitar acrobatics of Australian über-shredder Jeremy Barnes layered over a relentlessly driving electronic groove. “On the Line” began life as my final project in an Electronic Music course at Old Dominion University. I was researching music that incorporated the sounds of a telephone’s Dual Tone MultiFrequencies (DTMF) as actual instruments instead of mere effects. The trivia hounds among you might note that I used the DTMF generator to create the sound of the telephone number 867-5309 in homage to Tommy Tutone’s 1982 hit.
