Experimental Music on the Radio

Well, this is a first for me. My Organ Study #1 in 26 edo was included on an experimental music radio show this past weekend. I always thought it would be cool to be heard on the radio, but realised that there aren't many opportunities for experimental microtonal music.

I'm glad that the airwaves aren't entirely dominated by the more popular and commercially successful types of music. This particular show airs in Southern Illinois, but regardless of where you live, you can download an mp3 version of the show at the excellent Startling Moniker blog. This is great place to learn about and hear a wide variety of experimental music. I am a big believer in exploring the frontiers of music and listening to things that may be somewhat difficult to understand, but can broaden your horizons. If you feel the same way, there's enough there to keep you busy for a long time.

Congratulations on the exposure! We have to take our kudos where we get them. Their show has just been added to my podcast client, so I can always listen in the future. Subscribe at http://startlingmoniker.wordpress.com/feed/

Indoor tanning lotion? I thought this was a joke-y blog title. Go fig, it's a real thing. If you learn one new thing a day, I want a do-over! *laughs*

I hope you all enjoy the shows. I love doing them! --DaveX
