Experimental Music and Experimental Listening

On the subject of EA hybrids, etc. etc. – we should be careful to separate experimentation into two separate categories, listening and creating.  There is little experimentation within new music creation.  The majority of experimentation and pioneering occurred back in the time of Pierre Schaeffer – early period of musique concrète.  However, I do think there is a lot of refining and re-findings within the creative process.  If the door was cracked open during the 1950s, technology insomuch as today’s field recording gadgets, affordable PC/laptops and software kicks the door wide open.
