Melody in Mayhem

  • Friday 11pm-Saturday 2am

Experimental, genre defying music for all ages and from all ages. Pretty much anything is fair game here but there is an emphasis on minimal electronics of the non-dance persuasion as well as post-classical, between-the-cracks rock and some good ol’ time Musique Concrete when I can find it. We’ll also give emphasis to new releases when they come in. Non serious music for the academic listener.

"Now there is no taboo; everything is allowed. But one cannot simply go back to tonality, it’s not the way. We must find a way of neither going back nor continuing the avant-garde. I am in a prison: one wall is the avant-garde, the other wall is the past, and I want to escape." György Ligeti

This is what you get in new music: Klara Lewis, The Conformists, Mazozma, Robert Crouch, Ryan Huber, Tim Hecker and loads more.

As for the old: Carl Stalling, Aranos, John Fahey (on electric guitar), The Friction Quartet and György Ligeti who has been regarded as "one of the most important avant-garde composers in the latter half of the twentieth century". As a commemoration of sorts to his death June 12th, 2006 we play “Requiem” composed in 1962.
