    I more and more like what I call "Alien music".
    Most music is about emotions, ideas, thoughts, people, ... and that bores me. "I love you, I miss you, I am angry, I am alone, I hate people, society should change, another brick in the wall", yada yada.

    Mozart used a term "Absolute Music" to describe his own creations. They didn't have a theme, a topic, no idea behind. Just pure music.
    But I think nowadays, with electronic music, we went even further.
    I like things that are totally unrelated to anything human like "emotions" or "thoughts" ...

    Even music like "brutal death metal" is too emotional. Even "I will kill you with a sledgehammer" is another emotion (anger), very tame music after all. Even black metal songs about nuclear holocaust are just emotional outbursts. Too human, too emotional.

    I like music humans can't relate to. Not even with concepts ... Example:

    So basically you're saying you like electronic music.

    What a valuable thread!

    Although I must admit, that piece is p.killer.
