The Beauty of “Weird” Music

music-thinking

According to some people I like weird and unusual music. This is true, I like a lot of non-mainstream music. I listen to steampunk, dark music, symphonic metal, celtic folk, indie rock, musicals, Japanese, instrumental and any other sound which catches my fancy.

I was thinking about why I love many of these genres today and decided the root of it is because they makes me think. For me good music teaches me something or gets my mind working. I’ve learned new words from steampunk songs, history and folk lore from celtic folk, and delved into the depths of human emotion and motivation with indie rock and alternative music. I love instrumental because it offers no restrictions except for the mood of the sound and allows your imagination to take off. But the common thread is it gets me thinking and challenges me.

What’s some of the unusual music that you guys like? I’m always on the lookout for new music (;

  1. I certainly have unusual musical tastes that run allover the map but gravitate toward modern classical. Check my blog for more ideas and some album reviews. newmusicbuff.wordpress.com Take a listen to anything by Conlon Nancarrow or Yannis Xenakis to get an idea of the joy of complexity.
