Boring Formless Nonsense: Experimental Music and the by Eldritch Priest

By Eldritch Priest

Boring Formless Nonsense intervenes in an aesthetics of failure that has mostly been delimited through the visible arts and its avant-garde legacies. It specializes in modern experimental composition during which failure rubs shoulders with the types of probability, noise, and obscurity. In those works we listen failure anew. We listen boredom, formlessness, and nonsense in a fashion that offers new buy to aesthetic, philosophical, and moral questions that falter of their destructive potential. Reshaping debates on failure as a classy classification, eldritch Priest exhibits failure to be a hugely doubtful proposal. The publication frames fresh experimental composition as a deviant type of sound paintings whose affective and formal parts give some thought to present concerns in modern tradition, and provides analyses of musical works and function practices which are hardly heard, not to mention regarded as major cultural phenomena - exhibiting the function that obscurity and the esoteric have in articulating present cultural realities. bold in content material and experimental in its process, Boring Formless Nonsense will problem and fracture your perspectives on failure, creativity, and experimental music.
