so the music event of the year happened and oneohtrix point never's new album AGE OF finally came out, as expected it's fuckin biblical business as usual for 0PN and he's managed yet again to excel in something out of his wheelhouse. but i guess the point is he doesn't have a wheelhouse. everybody go ahead and listen to it and everything else he's done

nothing from his new album is on YT yet and I couldn't find No Good so here's Chrome Country to make you cry



seeing MYRIAD at barbican in july, anybody catch one of his US performances of it?

Deafheaven are coming to my city on my birthday and I'm so excited to see them! My general health and my ears are going to hate me but it's worth it.

They're on a streak of three amazing albums in a row now

Can anyone give me a good place to start as far as classical music goes? I wanna get into it because (1) I can listen to it while doing shit at work that requires actual focus and (2) it's a common topic on Jeopardy!

classical is quite broad and i am by no means an expert on classical music despite having classical training so this is sorta a rough rough sketch of my thoughts

baroque period -- marked by improvisation, ornamentation, and polyphonic (multiple distinct voices) texturing. Bach is a representative composer of this period but i would also look into Handel and Vivaldi as stylistically capturing the baroque movement

classical -- marked by an emphasis on harmony and melody (homophony) and stricter adherence to how music is written. Mozart is the obv representative composer here, as well as early Beethoven (he kinda straddles classicism and romanticism depending on the years).

romantic -- singing melodic lines, big variances in dynamics, rubato (interpretive tempo). more accidentals and chromaticism. Composers to look to are Brahms, Chopin, Liszt, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Grieg, Saint-Saens

impressionist -- explorations into non functional harmony, including quartal/quintal harmonies. marked use of modality. Composers include Debussy, Satie, Ravel, Scriabin

there's more contemporary/modern/postmodern/etc stuff that has qualities of being increasingly more post-tonal and post-structural, and i definitely haven't really studied it too much but if your goal is easy listening while studying and not actively analyzing music i'd probably say much of this stuff isn't really up your alley. Stravinsky's Rite of Spring is probably a good example though, although with even more modern stuff it can get pretty weird

yeah, the way I've always sold it instead of pointing up at the massive ivory tower is just ... try Mozart, Bach, Satie, Schoenberg, and Stravinsky. Maybe also Arvo Part? (smiling) If none of those are interesting just come back to classical music later.

Shit gets wild and fun after Schoenberg, Stravinsky is considered part of a "Neoclassical" period because he eschewed modernity and kept playing Bach's game while still being accepted as aesthetically valuable.

Le Sacre du Printemps (Stravinsky) and the Gymnopedies (Satie) are the first non-modern classical pieces I really loved.
Das buch der hangenden garten (Schoenberg op. 15) is the first modern classical piece I really loved.

I've listened to two episodes of inside music on BBC radio 3 completely randomly in the car and both times found them really really good. It's just a classical music person playing music they find interesting with a little bit of talking in between but they seem to make an effort to select quite unusual stuff, like an inhumanly fast piano composition designed to be played on a self-playing piano back when those were a thing, so it's not necessarily a list of 'the best music' which would probably be dull, more like here's a person who spends a lot of time thinking and listening to music and they will show you a bunch of stuff you would never have heard otherwise

Building a collection is another good BBC radio 3 music thing. They pick one piece then listen to different performances of it to work out which you might want to buy for your collection.It's really fascinating to hear and compare two cellists or whatever, even though i know nothing about music.

can we talk about how amazing the producer for perfume is (and the group!)

i always come back to polyrhythm and the bridge is just absolutely phenomenal (especially doubly so for pop music). idk the exact rhythms but i'm counting 5/8, 6/8, 4/4, and maybe 6/4 (?) rhythms simultaneously

this article bugs me to no end tbh hate this sort of "rational/logical" esque thinking towards things that such thinking is clearly not suited for (i also blame silicon valley for these kinds of ppl) cool we get it you like math and science but ppl rly out here treating it like a swiss army knife for everything

music is (for the most part excluding more avant garde stuff) inherently repetitive in some sense. anyone with a rudimentary understanding of music theory (or even jus an active ear) can tell u that it's not so much the note (or word, or whatever) as it is in context which is what this dude fails to realize. u can repeat the same phrase but the musical context will give it different feelings. beyonce's love on top gets lyrically repetitive towards the end but it also modulates by semitones and it creates a lifting feeling

tldr stop trying to justify music with math yall r fools
