Music is not only about complexity.
I love simple music as well as extremely complex stuff, if it's only GOOD music.
What does good mean to me?
Listen… to Zenjungle, for example. To Sandman's Orchestra. To Graciellita. To Rune Martinsen's Bonsai, one of the best pieces of the last five years in my humble opinion. To Arja Kastinen. To Sidney Corbett. To Hans Peter Reutter's "Chamber concerto". All Good Music, here on SoundCloud.
And always listen to Bach, from time to time, to Haydn, to Mozart, to Beethoven, to Chick Corea, to Josquin, to Machaut, to Charles Mingus, to Strawinsky, to Miles, Miles and Miles, to Monteverdi, to Telemann, to Simon and Garfunkle, to Prince, to Led Zeppelin, to the Beatles, to Jiuta, to "Chidori no Kyoko" – what a work! –, to Saung Music, to the wise men, the Gbaya, to Pina Bausch, to Mari Takano, to Steve Reich, to Ligeti, to Chopin, to Debussy, to Herbie Hancock's Piano works, to Stockhausen's "Mantra" and "Momente" (that's a gas man!!!), listen to Sting and Bjørk and Peter Gabriel, to Berg and Schönberg and Webern, to Bill Evans and Bartók, listen to Palestrina, listen to Oprecht and Ockeghem, listen to Schumann, listen to Fauré, listen to folk songs, listen to the salty Oiwakebushi, listen to the artless art and the peak of all artless art that is Gershwin, listen to Brahms – he was an internationalist, he even appreciated of Japanese music and Mahler, and Scarlatti and Rameau – listen to them too!, listen to Nancarrow, listen to Schubert the alcoholic who could compose in the pub, all day long –, listen to Bali joy and Java meditation, listen to Ornette Coleman, listen to Boulez' techno masterwork, Sur Incises, listen to Distler's "Bluebeard" and Shostakovich, listen to Rachmaninoff and to early Scriabin (3rd Sonata), listen to Astor Piazzolla, listen to Prokovieff (and forgive him the tasteless pieces), listen to Keith Jarrett, listen to the wind and the moon and the sun and the ocean and Arvo Pärt, listen to the mystics, don't listen to me if you don't like it.
Just for the joy of it. If you find some joy here… all the better. I'm trying my best.
And SoundCloud is still fun, even if I liked the Classic one better and miss many of my friends here most of them left SoundCloud at about the time I left it.
We need conscience of NEW Sounds. Not of how great we are.
I used to favor a few tracks and follow a few people for political reasons as – I guess – most of us do. I'll clean that up a bid, in order to give you a true understanding what I mean with Joy, but it will take some time.
