Cock an ear to the u:ber cross-genre form that's been exploding dancefloors all over the world with such bravado. Strangely I came across this format while hunting Iranian dance music, so thanks to Monosurround and Daryus Shokof.
We've a hard task ahead because the definition for contemporary Maximalist music is already out of date, yet we sample a David A. Jaffe track, for sure.
Contemporary maximalist music, defined by composer David A. Jaffe "embraces heterogeneity and allows for complex systems of juxtapositions and collisions, in which all outside influences are viewed as potential raw material." Examples include might be Edgard Varèse, Charles Ives, and Frank Zappa. This show is followed by an interview with Jaffe, and then an hour or so of his earlier works form the '70s.
