This thread is to share and discuss non-conventional music. Music that most people wouldn't call music
Here's a few discussion points to start conversation:
>1. How about we start by discussing what is music in the first place?
Imo it's sound. Like, literally any sound is music. Even audiobooks
>2. Does "non"-music have any value?
Yes, because in my opinion it "expands our horizons" on what music can be. I think having preconceived notions of what music has to be is a very awful and limiting thing, and having these subjectively bizarre takes on it might help pushing away these walls that would otherwise weight on less "weird" musicians
>3. Do you listen to it? If so, how is it different from listening to more typical music?
I sometimes listen to noise, to drown out other sounds I don't like, otherwise I rarely listen to this type of music more than once. But sometimes I might feel like listening to something weird, to experience something new

Here's some stuff I'm aware of:
Noise, the obvious
The opposite
free jazz


I discovered that album in RYM a while ago, played on loop and got bored

I always have a usb key in my car with my uncanny songs, because none of my friends or my wife can handle it. The faces of other drivers are priceless .

Passenger of shit
Otto von schirach
Grotesque through incoherence

I don't know if it fits but I can't resist:

When I think of unconventional music, Swans are always the first band that comes to mind.

Daughters as well, very interesting band.

Death Grips, of course!
(This song makes me feel like I could strangle a bull.)

Charles Manson's music, along with The Manson Family Recordings, are very unique tunes. I showed the song "Ride Away" to a friend and he said it was the worst song he's ever heard lol.

Stalaggh/Gulaggh are a terrifying mammoth of uncomfortable noises. Not much is known about them; apparently they're a Dutch/Belgian collective of musicians(?) that have recorded a handful of albums. They incorporate the screams of mental patients and "damaged" women/children in their work, layering it over noise and instrumentation. It's hard to verify all of this but I think the music speaks for itself.

Whitehouse is a good place to start for power electronics and noise. Another artist group is Consumer Electronics.


100 gecs are a pretty unconventional band. They kinda sound like if Skrillex and Basshunter stayed up for two weeks doing crack and then recorded an album. It's total zoomer shit and one of the singers is a tranny but I cannot lie, for these beats fucking slap.

Dylan Brady, the producer, makes music on his own as well. I think some of them are very good.
