"Well done to everyone who entered and thanks for anyone who voted for me. Congratulations, Ray - I thought your piece was absolutely excellent (I think I voted for it to be 1st). There were some really interesting entries and a great mix of styles…"
"Yeah, I think it's interesting because of its weirdness too. The chart is at the back of a book where he tries to apply a technique called Schenkerian Analysis to 12 tone music. The thing is the technique was only invented to analyse music with…"
"I find much music of the 2nd Vienna school to be pretty much all of one hue.. grey. Very little joy, too much 19th century psychosis, though that too can be amusing in small doses and as long is it is only happening to a dear friend and not your…"
"With regards to music in one mood, I've noticed a genre that seems to include almost exclusively music in one mood or at least individual tracks in one mood. That genre is contemporary game music. For example, Jeremy Soule's amazing scores…"
"I still listen to, and prefer, the same music I did in college (some 40 years ago). Rock, Baroque, Classical, soundtracks. I don't care for jazz or country. I don't mind dub-step. It reminds me more of rock music. These days my car radio…"
"I was brought up on progressive rock and I formed this strange opinion throughout all of my teens and early twenties that any other genre was rubbish. So anything on the radio in the charts was out and also out was any genre which focussed on groove…"
"I have found this to be true for me also. When I was young I only listened to classical music. As I grow older, I have come to appreciate many many other forms including jazz, rock, pop, movie music and other styles. Ambient/Chill is a recent…"
"I'm finding more and more that I like to listen to music with just one mood in it. I used to love more the drama of pieces with multiple sections such as progressive rock songs and romantic orchestral music but, these days, I get so into the…"
"Daryl - this is one of the things I particularly like about it. It's good music to be in the background without being distracting. I play it at work because unless I am particularly paying attention it does not interrupt my thoughts. I…"
"I like that one too. I have it although I don't actually listen to it too much. But it is credited with starting the whole ambient music genre. I wonder, have you heard Erik Satie's 'Furniture Music'? That was designed to be…"

About Me (MUST be more than 10 words to be approved):
I'm 28 and an enthusiastic composer of contemporary music. In the past, I composed music based on other pieces I really liked but now I am trying to compose music using my own individual voice. This voice includes techniques such as free improvisation, intentional imperfection and the belief that composition is an abstract art.
