having a divers cultural experience in my early life i gravitated to music because of its memetic significance. i really find people from the in dust realised cultures to be patently ignorant, which i attribute to the majority of the information they receive about the world being from artificial, culturally accredited sources. "you don't just get to be on the radio because you make good music".
my focus shifted to music software development with synthedit's vst publishing facility in order to increase access to the means of expression and thereby increase the diversity of expression in the medium. mission accomplished huh.
accordingly my musical expression became more focused on technique over communication (insofar as the medium isn't the message) and my ear became accustomed to sounds other people would consider unmusical. if i was interested in a melody it would be rendered without a need to accoutre it conventionally, because i can fill in or remove elements in my imagination. my musical hand became "lazy" or really unnecessary for my own enjoyment and recording.
modes of expression that were voluminous enough to comprise a collection are athttp://xoxos.bandcamp.net

most recently i've been recording experiments in a self-defined genre 'new blend' -
a new blend track should have about two parts.. a bass and a lead, and a fairly conventional, non-overt percussion setting. the interest should be in the sequence, so minimal effects.
a new blend track has two parts that are dicretely different.. often in different time signatures. overall song length is about 1 minute, so enough time for ABA or ABAB. a musical tone should be described, the transition between parts established, the overall intent is transitory, eg. to brush upon many different settings within one listening session.
