Music Is Not A Language

Welcome to music is not a language, a blog created for music.

"Music is not a language" comes from Iannis Xenakis explanation of how music is actually not a language but an intricate and interpretative way to give music a sense of non gramatical comunication, not oral nor gestural. Music's more than a procedure of expressión, more complex.

Quoting Xenakis: "Music is not a language. Any musical piece is akin to a boulder with complex forms, with striations and engraved designs atop and within, which men can decipher in a thousand different ways without ever finding the right answer or the best one."

Anyway, this blog was created with the intention of reviewing that beautiful music that we love and want to shear with everyone else (the ones that are able to admire it and love it).

The musical spectrum here shouldn't be restricted by anything or anyone, we should be posting things that we like (txusmx and me) and want to share our opinion on those particular works.

Although, the idea of creating this was initially influenced by the idea (redundancy error) of mixing our musical knowledge, so you should find here a lot of drone, ambient, dark ambient, glitch, IDM, rock noise, harsh noise, black metal, death metal, progressive, math rock, krautrock, grindcore, breakcore, breakbeat, drill-n-bass, industrial, power electronics, doom, folk, downtempo, leftfield, trip-hop, jazz, free jazz, nu-jazz, Classical, neo-classical, shoegaze, experimental, punk, psychedelic, ultra-minimal, speedcore, corenforce, darkwave (generalized), and many many more, as long as it has a good quality and that avant-garde feeling ;D

So please feel free to post comments or suggestions as well as chating in our own music is not a language chat box.
