Mommy, that music is scaring me!

Music and Movies made by Frank Koustrup

Uncomfortable music for uncomfortable times is a catchy tag line, but is it true? Who can say? Coincidence or Conspiracy? Hmm.

This music is instrumental with clear beats, an occasional song, eclectic, hard-edged, but familiar.

The movies meld and juxtapose sound with images.

I had been trying to adapt baroque musical forms – such as fugue and passacaglia – to odd-metered rhythms, industrial noises, and the sounds of instruments, oscillators, machinery, creatures, and voices. Cadences would resolve by the very end. Honest. But lately, the music has turned quite a bit darker with quarter-tone tone clusters, guitars bouncing against surfaces, and blue jays taking over the neighbourhood or getting in fights with crows.

I dislike writing about music - it's the old "dancing about architecture" problem - and I drift from technical explanations to narratives about something or other that may or may not be relevant.

The most appropriate genre seems to be "Misfit".
