Regarding obscure music

  1. May 4, 2006 #1
    I'm wondering what happened to the minimalist music of several years ago. It allowed one to concentrate and actually enjoy the changes. The changes caused me react differently than to what may be considered standard musical format. Much different than say to Mozart conpositions, or to Queen's vocalizations. There were trappings of mathematical form to it. It seemed to say things other than conventually expect.

    What do those of you that remember this type of music think?

    I have some musics by Laurie Spiegel who was influenced by minimalism.

    Actually, Paul Horn (jazz flutist) has done some really cool work that sort of meets some of the criterion. His works in the Taj Majal are outstanding.

    I think people (artists and listeners) just moved on to other things.
