I wasn't really trying to turn them on to anything. They asked for it, and I gave them the warning that "it would be Zack Music, not dubstep or country."

But, none of that stuff was particularly experimental, except the Terry Riley, but even that is pretty tame...

I just thought it was a slightly humorous, relatively relevant story to recount!

Aye, I've had similar experiences. At work anything that isn't straight from radio is experimental, back in my retail days I put some laid back instrumental hip-hop on over the isle speakers and my coworkers thought even that was weird.

Wow. At least these guys aren't that bad, but, depending who's there, it's a pretty dubstep, 90's rock, country, early 2000's hard rock, celtic rock, or gangsta rap kind of crew.

Oh yes, and two of the guys are die-hard Nightwish fans. I didn't even realize there were male Nightwish fans. Or Nightwish fans at all, really...

I don't know many people who are into the some stuff I'm into that is more experimental, but that doesn't hinder me from listening to it anyway. Not everything you hear has to be shared I think.
(I don't mind going to concerts by myself haha)

My dad has always been pretty open minded coming to a lot of expiremental music he does not like drone, or noise though. It's where I got my initial interest in the genre.

Sadly, I am the only person here who enjoys that type of music, which is partly why I joined the forum.

Well, originally it was my older brother who turned me onto the scene, but the farthest he ever really got was Death Grips. He'll still describe music as "weird" during a serious conversation and, while there's absolutely nothing wrong with liking pop, he'll keep casually saying some pop producer is a "master" when they keep rehashing the same stupid tinny accelerando for the obviously structured climax of every stupid song they write. It's the Ke$ha guy, by the way (She kinda just sounds like classic rock with party themes by now... *shrug* not my thing).
But yeah, he's the kind of person who listens to things song-by-song instead of a larger context like albums or something, and sometimes I'll hear his playlist jump from ABBA to some track off Shaking the Habitual and it's really jarring. He's a really smart guy, but sometimes I want to sit down and talk about how analysis of music in the correct context is just as important as analysis of vulgar cinema...
Just listen to Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished already! It's not supposed to be pleasant, it doesn't cover pleasant themes! It's like complaining that Lars von Trier films aren't colorful enough...

Yeah he's the only person I know who has any roots in the avantgarde , and he certainly gets the ideas, he just applies them more to film and lets music be surface-level entertainment.
Other than that, I guess I can listen to Person Pitch in the car cause my dad likes Panda's voice and it never gets "too weird," and sometimes if I catchmy mom in th right mood I can talk my way through Mount Eerie or the Glow pt2 and explain it in a way she seems to appreciate. But I want to play Ples Upiru in the car! Why can't people be more accepting of the surface-level entertainment garnered by playing a violin with a chair leg and screeching along? (Iva's my current obsession. That trip-hop album with Yokoto was... unexpected and amazing)

Blather blather rant rant self deprecating joke about being pretentious

My darling hates experimental music, but she's the most intelligent human being I've ever encountered. So, liking avant garde etc has nothing to do with intelligence, in my opinion.

Yeah, It's just where you apply it. Or how.
