Everything is mathematical! Our whole life is determined by mathematical relations and equations.
How it sounds
As if a music buzz (more scientifically) was tangled between the strings of a 37-string handmade electric guitar.
Strings that he thought were abacus and was trying to do mathematical operations.
In fact, it is like progressive rock with even more strange musical measures such as 7/8, 11/8, 13/8.
Why listen to it
I guess it could be a good way to communicate with alien cultures.
In fact, the complexity of the genre can not be understood with one listen, so every time you listen to composition you discover new musical elements.
And because music is nothing but math with sounds.
But more importantly, in this category, the drummer is the berry/star of the band.
Because half of your brain cells can be broken if you have not practiced this sound.
Where we meet it
The USA and Japan
When did it start
The late ‘80s
Who are the pioneers
The roots can go very deep back in time even to Igor Stravinsky or Dave Brubeck.
Surely all the musicians of the genre were influenced by bands like King Crimson, Yes, and Rush.
But the main reference point of the genre is Steve Albini and his first band, Big Black.
The world-famous Slint, Fugazi, and Naked Raygun are among the pioneers of the genre.
You have to listen
31Knots, Ahleuchatistas, Alpha Male Tea Party, Breadwinner, Colossamite, Dazzling Killmen, Delta Sleep, Elephant Gym, Ghosts and Vodka, Hella, Tera Melos, We Versus The Shark.
Days of glory
In the mid-90s mainly thanks to the relative success of some bands of the genre.
It is an art simply for technique!
What is it confused with
With Indie rock, post-hardcore, progressive rock, minimal.
How do you describe it to an irrelevant
Think of some equations at school that understood absolutely nothing! This in music.
