Music, Melancholy and Mystery

When I was a teen, music was a sanctuary from a world that seemed hopelessly superficial, banal and consumerist. I was mostly into classical music at the time, and found myself attracted to music of grief, longing, and the desire to “see behind the veil.” While other kids were listening to—well, I have no idea what, really—I was…See More

Rant: let's ditch the term "long form"

Posted on September 2, 2014 at 2:03pm 19 Comments

I have repeatedly seen the term "long form" in discussions of ambient music, and I would like to lobby to delete the term entirely, since it is quite meaningless.
