I must create a system or be enslaved by another man’s. – William Blake
One reason I like to create experimental music is simply that I’m trying to make music that no one else hase ever made before. Of course, anything I compose or write is my own but as artists, musicians, and writers, we often fall into molds. We create our work based on popular systems and formats. Experimental music attempts to break free from those walls.
My goal has always been to do something unique and different. I’m not sure I’ve always succeeded, but take a look at the Anderhill discography, listen, and decide for yourself.
I’m making this point because I’m currently working on creating some new experiemntal compositions. Although I’m still working on the more traditional Erickson & Graham Collection, I’m also playing with new electronic works.
In fact, I just released eight new pieces from the vault. What’s the vault? It’s where I keep compositions I’m not sure what to do with. Some wind up getting thrown out. Some sit there for months, even years. Some get realeased. Check out Vault 2, my second release of tracks from the vault.
I love experiemntal music because it breaks expectations and makes way for my own system of doing things. – dse
