I've found that I really enjoy Serialism and Microtonal music, and I'm looking for more. I only have a couple releases so please recommend me anything in these two genres.
With all due respect to your individual musical tastes -- and I sincerely mean that -- I don't usually encounter anyone who enjoys serialism and microtonal music.
As a long time listening, performing, and teaching musician (B.A., M.A., two California teaching credentials), I enjoy a wide range of music, including many 20th-century music such as Stravinsky and others who employ unusual dissonances, chordal structures, and so on.
Since I'm always willing to expand my musical horizons, if you would care to, I would really appreciate understanding a little more about, well, exactly what it is specifically about serialism and microtonal music that makes it enjoyable to you.
So, could you give me a little background as to exactly what it is in serialism and microtonal music that attracts you or intrigues you? Or perhaps you could send me to some recordings of your favorite serialist and/or microtonal music that are easily available on a place like YouTube, or on some other website where I can listen after perhaps gaining a little more understanding of why these kinds of music fascinate you.
I think it would be a very educational experience for me -- and maybe for you too.
