First came prog, then the nerdy stigma drove me out of there into jazz school, where I opened to hip hop/soul/electronic, which led me into more and more extravagant textures, and eventually I realized all I wanted was sonic exploration more so than any trope or idiom. In university I joined a free music improv group, and since then it's "all sound is music" if you let it be. Now there's sort of no end to the excitement.

I knew someone who boasted about challenging/hard music. Wanted to see what the fuss was all about. Just as I thought, it ain’t all that.

In a way, I guess. It was TMR. I wasnít like blown away or anything but it did make me think that I could see the potential of me liking experimental music of a different kind.

Thatís also the start of me avoiding snobs/purists.

Isn't dismissing experimental music a form of snobbery in itself?

Anyway, I like TMR too.

Maybe it’s a poor choice of word (english is my third language). The intention was to say that the music was not as challenging as I thought, it was not for me. But I saw the potential. I didn’t attack anyone’s preference. And if that still counts as snobbery maybe I should have chosen other words.

This girl is still learning life ��

Addendum: I actually love experimental music. I have listened to enough stuff after TMR (over ten years ago) to learn the type of experimental style that i can enjoy.
