Alloy: Episode 36

Layers of abstraction

Dissonant and seemingly unstructured music, non-melody driven soundscapes, or other "off the beaten path" musical experiments and sounds do not bother me. In fact, I invite the tension and complexity they generate like I would a challenging and deep philosophical discussion. To me they are one and the same. A passionate yet abstract aural dialog, if there is such a thing. Don't get me wrong, I have moments and days where I need a structured melody, something to hang my musical mind on--some solid melodic ground to rest my weary head on.
