    undisclosed outdoor location? only if you’ve never been to the river arts district. It’s right next to the river, cuz you can see that distinctive brick chimney across the road…

  2. Wow. Boatrocker’s head will explode. A “knob-twiddler” who also plays guitar.

    Also, since it’s a music video, I’m inclined to let the continuity errors slide.

    But I fail to see how any of that is “guerrilla”.

    Why would my head explode again? You might be thinking of dpewen who maintains that only Woodstock-era, folk music or world music of the week matters.

    If the guy can make noise on multiple instruments, way to go! I’m not saying I’m going attend a specific show where it happens, but being a multi- instrumentalist does make one a more valuable player in the Asheville scheme of things.

    I don’t care for it much, listen to it much or own much electronic music, if that’s what you mean. However I don’t actively campaign to have said music eliminated from venues or keep it out of the hands of music fans.

    I’m also the guy who points out that rap and hip hop are music (in my opinion) as well as pointing out that electronic music was birthed in 1920 with the theremin, so it’s not like it’s some sort of new genre.

    But there are always the almighty archives to corroborate my statements.

    @boatrocker you are definitely right there. It is not a new genre of music in the least. In fact, the further back you go, the more you can appreciate it. We can also agree that no other genre is as sweeping as “electronic” and has more sub genres. Thats part of what makes it so fascinating to me. There are types of electronic music that I would never listen to, for sure, but that’s true of all music. If a certain type of music resonates for you, then listen to it and enjoy it. The type of music you like is the type of music you like for a myriad of reasons from past experience to personal tastes.

    Same with any medium. Books, paintings, … I wouldn’t expect everyone to respond to cubism just as much as I wouldn’t expect everyone to respond to Western Impressionism. That’s what makes art great and beautiful. It can be something or nothing. Everything to someone, and complete garbage to someone else. I have the utmost repect for that.

    As for ‘electronic music’, the first person who used recording equipment was ‘electronic’.

    All those albums the hippie-purists like to site as being ‘real music’ from the late 60′s and early seventies were recorded with electronic equipment.

    Can you imagine what Hendrix would be doing today with a moog?
