Its a little like writing music for no one to play, something im far too familiar with.
In other news, I am currently tuned to the music of a group(?) entitled The Dirty Projectors. They're skilled, skilled musicians. This is genre-bending goodness that needs to be heard. The song Warholian Wigs reminds me of a slightly warped Steve Reich. Its beautiful, haunting, interesting and experimental, mixing violins, woodwinds, cellos, xylophones with electronics and percussion, but in the most unusual of ways.
But it works, it works so well, and what music to stimulate your ideas! Its refreshing and intelligent. This too may be a new favorite.
Im a picky listener, but this is good stuff.
