Near the pinnacle of modern music, Eastman's repertoire is so unfairly glazed over in the overly white sophisticate as to make me sick, but to make such beautiful, inspiring works into mere political statements (though that they are, in part) would be to reduce one of the most amazing careers in music ever to nothing more than that of a typical Marxist activist, and that treatment may be a fate even worse than public ignorance.

The works on display here are titanic. "Stay on It" opens the set, and immediately, it is revealed that there is such a thing as a populist minimalist. But that is the name of the game for Eastman - a shatterer of preconceived notions, and one of the very few in the avant-garde to make John fucking Cage seem conservative by comparison (see: his outburst at Eastman's choice of material while performing one of his open-ended pieces that instructed the vocalist to "Give a lecture"). I could go on for days about how "If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich?," though the worst of the set, far outstrips the careers of most modern composers entirely; how "The Holy Presence of Joan d'Arc" is a more "classical" approach for Eastman, and it succeeds endlessly; how his highly political "Nigger Trilogy" could easily be called the greatest triptych ever conceived in music; and how the "1, 2, 3, 4!" of "Evil Nigger" separates the most impactful bars of music I've yet heard.

But I won't.

Those albums aren't even obscure in the first place

yeah because literally everyone that's truly into music has heard Khomus: Jew's Harp Music of Turkic Peoples in the Urals, Siberia, and Central Asia right?

A long time ago, I just listen to the soundtrack these days as it's the best ambient NIN

Yeah, just because the music isn't from Western Europe, North America, or Japan doesn't make it obscure. It might be obscure TO YOU, but that's not because it's obscure (because it certainly isn't to a lot of people), but because you are an ignorant (which is not a bad thing, it just is).

>>61975571
Don't call something obscure because you don't know about it. How would you feel if a friend told you that they like this pretty obscure band called Neutral Milk Hotel? He wouldn't know that they aren't really obscure, but you would; in the same way you think that music is obscure yet some people don't.
>>
>>61975645
I do know it, though? Why else would I be talking about it, and describing why it isn't proper to claim they aren't obscure because of gradual niche exposure?
>>
>>61975421
...for you
>>
>>61975645
well no fucking shit, obscurity is relative. what's your point?
>>
>>61975645
you're the most autistic trip

haha just kidding man your taste is pretty good, have a rec

>gradual niche exposure
Like Vaporwave? Because I don't think I have ever heard anyone on here call that genre obscure.

>>61975757
Dismissing some music just because it's obscure is a bad thing.

>>61975774
Yes, but thankfully not literally autistic
>>
>>61975805
he not at all or hardly implied he was dismissing it, though.

No.

>>61975883
i dont really see it in that post. from what i can tell his point, aside from not liking eastman, is simply that appraising some music just because it's obscure is a bad thing. that's not even necessarily in opposition to yours, like "how well or not something is known shouldn't matter to your liking or assessment"

>>61975404
Only theater of pain is great but I prefer catastrophe ballet

>>61975858
literally none of those bands are bad and you're a contrarian if you think otherwise
