Nothing like a Liam thread to get the lads talking. No one wants that electroacoustic weirdo music anymore. Give us a packet of benson gold and six stellas, we're reliving our teenage years.
electroacoustic music is very different from conventional music. but what is it different for? what do all the years of study and rigorous execution that go into this stuff amount to, from a listener's perspective? does it open up experiences that even more "experimental" areas of popular music (like IDM and deconstructed club) do not?
at the same, is there a sense in which it shares a language with hip hop, dub, rave, etc.? would producers in these areas benefit from greater awareness of classic electroacoustic works, as stockhausen suggested after hearing "the piece Aphex Twin of Richard James"?
collective interest in this stuff may have already been exhausted for a while by treelethargy's great thread. but the plan is to use this one for a few attempts to process some of the music discussed there and build on ideas that were brought up. or ones that weren't, really. just not so much posting recs here, cause there's already enough material in the playlist other_life made to last a lifetime.
