We’ve been experimenting with creating music explicitly intended as non-song “pieces.” This typically involves setting up procedural rules, such as building progressions by picking chords randomly out of a hat (in the spirit of John Cage‘s chance operations) or using Oblique Strategies. The goal is to break out of normal habits and methods of working, and also to expand the vocabulary of our music.
This one may or may not be finished. While not titled yet, the working name is “Berlin 2” because the whole exercise was originally partly inspired by some of the more Eno driven numbers on Bowie’s so called “Berlin Trilogy” and this was the second in the batch.
