I wanted to put together a playlist of music that blur genres or aren’t easily classified, what I like to think of as experimental which is something I’m a big fan of in art. However the idea of “experimental music got me thinking “What is Music?” I’ll leave it to Philosophy Tube to tackle that ambitious question:
What are Songs? What is Music? I’ll let Olly at Philosophy Tube tackle this ambitious question
What Caught my attention was the mention of “Lowercase” music (cite time tag from video, find name of guy at this exists) and I followed the trail to his video on the subject “Lowercase” music.
Being able to put a genre tag on this sound helped inspire the play list with the first artist Emancipator, which is an example of lowercase music.
What follows is a playlist of artists from other minor genres including plunderphonics with pogo, neo-psychedelia with the avalanches, woodkid spans from chamber/art pop to neofolk. Kaleidoscope Jukebox and Beats Antique share ethnotronica, and to round out I have a bit of trip-hop from blockhead.
