Strange Music Genres (Every Other Thursday)

Info about music genres found on various internet websites

Hello fellow music lovers! It’s Thursday, and I’ve decided to create a brand new topic. The creation of Music has brought on many fantastic genres and bands. This post will be focused on finding some rare, strange, and outrageous types of music. Now, grab your headphones, and let’s jam!

  • Lowercase Music: Lowercase Music was invented by Steve Roden in the early 90s. It’s created by amplifying the usually unheard sounds of world to an extreme level. This can be anything from ants running up a hill, to helium balloons hitting a ceiling. Roden’s first CD, Forms Of Paper, was recorded in The Los Angeles Public Library. In the CD, Roden handles paper in various ways. A rare expanded version of the CD was released, and only 500 copies are known to exist. The video below is of the before mention piece. Tell me what you think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Synthwave: Synthwave is an awesome genre of music that originated in the mid 2000s. It was heavily inspired by 1980s movie soundtracks, as well as new wave. The style is mainly instrumental with synthesizers, electronic drums, and gated reverb. Pieces of this genre can be found in the film, Drive, the TV show, Stranger Things, and the video game, Hotline Miami. French musician, Perturbator is one of my favorite synthwave artists, and his work in Hotline Miami helped spread this genre to a wider audience. Listed below is my favorite Perturbator track, Technoir.
