i suggest you take a gander at Jaron Lanier’s you are not a gadget for some perspective you will enjoy as well. I usually am trying to document experiments, even in the 1990s when i was doing “Drone rock” as ShreeSwifty and the Mandali of Mantra. We had a freefrom ambient collective, interested in LaMonteYoung, Tony Conrad, AMM, Reich, Terry RIley. and Now that is “popular” and people are attending Sunn0))) shows like they would a Metallica concert. I find it amusing but it seems like the Pitchforks’s and even the Wire magazines of the world still want to write about Derek Bailey [now Bill Orcutt, formerly John Fahey and sometimes RObbie Basho] and Radiohead and Bjork. People with a TON of money better be doing interesting things. I listen to autechre but i am not floored and never was. I am not interested in Alessandro Cortini’s Buchla explorations any more than Kaitlin Aurelia Smith’s. Recently i have been interested in INNODE, SHIT AND SHINE, Donato Dozzy, Merzbow (again) and SOME of Oren Ambarchi’s work but some is pure shit too. The last piece of experimental music i thought was interesting was Phillip Jeck’s "Beautiful Child"
No one cares about my Euro plonkings accept me or my ciat-lonbarde skree. I do not expect anyone to buy it for damn sure, nor do i need “Likes” for inspiration. Neo-retro-electronic music composition is a personal experience right now and that is what is so gratifying about it. Performance with machines [laptops, Euroracks, etc. ] is a problem because it’s usually extremely boring to watch someone else wiggle/tweak so that remains even if you have Thom Yorke up there moaning in front of it.
