If people want to discuss they should also sometimes listen to not only talk. Wink

I'm pleasantly surprised people found Autechre listenable - they can be quite, ahem, challenging. Here's another of their gems, that somehow slows down and speeds up at the same time:

Fractal music? Mmm, yeah, that may be compared to the musical tour along the Koch snowflake curve with its constant turns. Wink

I have a theory: Bjork's music is sex. And by that I don't just mean it's really good. It sounds to me like she's trying to transcribe the emotional and physical sensations of sex into musical form. Discuss.
I can agree to some extent with the aforementioned thesis: low tones, very close to infrasounds, may cause kind of sexual excitement. Wink

Okay, something for me and maybe YONG (and a person from the real life but not the member of this forum, who is a big fan of the "world music without borders") - others obviously don't care what I say here. Well, I'm not especially surprised, most of the people need to listen songs sung in the English language. From the other hand, to me the language is completely secondary thing, so I can find joy even there where others hear only "a mess".

St. Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so I think it wouldn't be improper if I write something on the theme of "love". Wink

The first observation I've made during my entire, over 5 years long, "journey" through the music world is that the vast majority of all songs is on the theme of "love". Doesn't matter whether it's love to the other human being, own country or... God. Doesn't matter whether this love is reciprocated or not. It's just LOVE spoken in various human languages. What's the most intriguing, the same word "love" is understood differently not only in unrelated cultures but even in countries classified as being representatives of the same culture. For example, the idea of "love" in the English-speaking world is far more broad than in the Central Europe. What is sometimes called "love" in America can be only defined as "friendship" here (maybe because people treat love more seriously here and such declaration as "I love you" definitely would be treated like an oath that in other words means "I'd give my life for you"). There is no need to mention that every person also can understand and define the same idea completely differently. Moreover, in some languages various kinds of love may be represented by almost completely unrelated words, originating from dissimilar language super- and substrates. For example, I know that in Uzbek, a member of the Turkic family, there are at least three such words: Turkic "sevgi", "muhabbat" - a term taken from Arabic and "ishq" also from Arabic but most probably transferred through Persian. All these words are translated to English as "love" but all subtle nuances of meaning they must represent are still unclear to me. Wink

The second observation I was able to make is that there, in "hidden" corners of our world, exist artists that may create something fresh, surprising and hardly calssifiable by our precisely shaped, carefully bred musical tastes. Wink Well, we can just limite ourselves to well-known and safe paths through the world of music. Why not? But in my humble opinion, much more interesting is to let our minds stay open for new rhythms and composition rules. Smile


The song presented below may interest YONG due to its sentimental character and picturesque video layer. What we can see there is an imagination of heaven but scenes painted there seem to refer to the pre-Muslim and pre-Christian traditions of the Euro-Asian continent. In fact, those images are strongly "Hellenistic" in its nature:The second song tells us a quite dramatic story:

Both music pieces have been published on the official YouTube channel ( http://www.youtube.com/user/SBUZTV ) of the Uzbek music company "Shou Biznes" ( www.shou-biznes.uz ).

Frankly, I find Bjork's music a bit boring. Sexual arousal? No way! Female singers who try to create a unique image by making strange, crazy, annoying, and sometimes disgusting, faces and body gestures are definitely not my type. Mad Wink

Thank you for your positive review. Smile I've just wanted to write down some of my thoughts and impressions from this entire process of self-education through music (obviously only complementary to what I got to know about the world earlier through the typical, school-based education). One can certainly say that pop music is rather strange source of inspiration but I would argue with it. In my opinion, the source of information isn't as much important as conclusions we can draw from it. Wink

YONG, I used to avoid of extremely sad songs and compositions because I usually feel completely "unarmed" and weak listening to them, but your today's music recommendations are so good that I was unable to resist. Wink

Probably, one of the best songs I've ever heard (mainly due to the unique voice of the songstress). "Every day I borrow, tears from my tomorrow" - well, simple yet improbably catchy phrase. Wink

Today I'd like to recommend something different, an ensemble of early music from Poland. I think you may like it. Wink
On the official site of this group you may find not only the aforementioned video but also an abundance of superb audio tracks presenting fully their repertoire:

http://collegiumvocale.bydgoszcz.pl/music/cvb005/cvb005.html

for example, you may check the 8th, "Bransle de Bourgogne / Bransle de Poictou". Wink

Enjoy! Very Happy

At first, I found the facial expressions of the group members very funny. After a while, I began to feel the chemistry of their harmony. Razz

I wish you were one of the group members! Laughing Wink

Hehe, it looks like a USSR commercial from the late 70's or early 80's. Wink The range of sounds this accordion may produce is truly amazing. Smile

Haha ... shoorick, you must be very young when you watched that commercial! Wink

By the way, was that electro accordion powered by rechargeable batteries? Rolling Eyes
