Oh the Existential Absurdity!

Agreed.

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.

Well you got me curious, so I found them on artistdirect.com. I have to say it's not my cup of tea (a little too chaotic for me), but I see what you mean.

Which album are you listening to?

Im listen to "the getty address" as well as "Slaves Graves", which is more orchestral, Try listening to song of the same name... quite beautiful music.

Also- Try listening to "I Sit on the Ridge at Dusk" from, "the getty address" its haunting.
