Musician Makes ‘Bootyful’ Music

PORTLAND, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One musician is making “bootyful” music.

Jennifer Batten, a renowned female guitarist, has added a new instrument to her rockin’ repertoire – her body – and is using it to create a new genre of music she calls “Butt-ronica.”

On her album Whatever, Batten added the first Butt- ronica song, titled “Inner Journey,” which consists of burps, farts, and other bodily noises over a hip-hop beat.

She says, “It’s definitely a party song. You listen to it if you wanna rock all night. You can also listen to it when you’re crying over a break-up to get you in a better mood.”

Though the farting noises sound like authentic butt blasts, Batten reveals that she actually used her arm to make the music.

She also got some help from male musician friends because, “There are certain nasty sounds only a man can make.”

Batten says she won’t be adding any more body instruments to her line-up since, “I don’t know if there’s any orifice I didn’t touch for that song.”

Whatever is available now on
