Floyd Kelley III – Microsound

Playing tracks by

Taylor Deupree , Richard Chartier , Steve Roden , Stephan Mathieu , Lawrence English and more.

Today’s Headphone Commute podcast comes from Floyd Kelley III. This mix is almost exclusively composed of tracks from Taylor Deupree‘s 12k label and Richard Chartier‘s LINE imprint, both at the forefront of experimental, minimal and microsound evolution.

"Microsound music isn’t for everyone. It takes a disciplined ear and a lot of patience. Many pass it off as non-musical. Some consider it too high brow. It took me years to really learn to appreciate it. Microsound artists can be included in the same rankings as 20th-century composers such as John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Iannis Xenakis, Pierre Boulaz, Pierre Henry, and Pierre Schaeffer. The terms: field recording, minimalism, tape music, musique concrète, electroacoustic, and avant-garde immediately come to mind."

This is the first time I've heard "microsound" music, and I really dig the concept and experience. Thanks for a beautiful mix, it was easy to get lost in!

I can't listen to this, all I hear is noise that the construction workers outside have been making all morning.
