Hey faggots, this is the last one of these I'm gonna make so I hope it gets noticed. If you're interested at all, post questions, thoughts, even your own compositions if you want. Come on, we won't bite. Alright, some of us will, but it's all in good fun.
An experiment in a pen-and-paper composing general, made for all the theory autists
This differs from /prod/ in that it is more focused on art music and music theory. That is not to say /prod/'s electronic music is unwelcome, by all means, post here! But follow in the footsteps of the classical composers of the 20th century who experimented in electronic music. But remember, this is NOT /classical/. Any art music, such as jazz, is acceptable
Post clyps, and please post accompanying notation so we can accurately critique your composing from a theory perspective

ITT: post an album you like
Is Views a classic?
ITT: Post musicians who seem like they're too depressed to function in the real world and are only able to express themselves through music, but inevitably ended up (or will end up) killing themselves directly or indirectly through drug use.
I'll start with some of my favourites - looking to expand my collection.
Elliott Smith - The Biggest Lie
What do you think about my experimental-pop album's cover art?
musicians communists will never understand
To celebrate their new album I'm going to be doing a university radio show on plunderphonics.
What are some other essentials I should include?
DJ Shadow - Endtroducing
John Oswald - Plunderphonics (or most of his other work)
Negativland - A lot to choose from, but I'd go for U2 for historical value or Helter Stupid for quality
Buchanan & Goodman - The Flying Saucer (for historical importance)
The Residents - The Beatles Play The Residents and The Residents Play The Beatles
Vaporwave (just in general really)
I don't know if it qualifies as "essential" but Hideki Naganuma's work on the Jet Set Radio Future soundtrack is outstanding and one my personal favorites. It was my first introduction into the Genre.
