"Whack Formal" is a term used to describe the music of Pharaoh Loosey. If trying to attach a definition to this term, one would find it easiest to say, "In the moment." The music of Pharaoh Loosey is an ongoing experiment in sound relying heavily on improvisation or "in the moment" playing. The actual words "Whack" and "Formal" have definitions that at first don't seem to coexist under one term, but as we disect the literal meanings of the two words, we come to find the term quite fitting.
