Oh boy my favorite thread is alive again. I've been learning a bunch of Yes recently. Starting to nail the solos in Yours Is No Disgrace and Starship Trooper, pretty stoked.

recent prog picks:



awesome live album that I recommend to all of you that dig PFM, they have such ridiculous energy live. awesome setlist and really top notch performances all around

and also checked out this record and it's pretty sweet. just a random obscure prog band but a nice sound, worth giving a listen


and also wanna post this cause i do think it fits and is of interest to those of you who have some interest in the Dead, I found this album called "Grayfolded" which takes every live recording of Dark Star from 65-95 and combines, mixes, and twists them into an unique album a little under two hours. pretty incredible feat and the best part is it's really good

Anyone dig Wicked Minds? Been listening to lots of Italian prog lately.

Only had a few minutes to check it out last night, but it sounded like it was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks bro

the KC was brand new, sounds so nice

I don't know where else to post this (I vaguely remember a classical music thread in the metal forum, but it's gone now), but does anyone enjoy the works of Arnold Schoenberg or Alban Berg?

It could fall under progressive I guess, but I was listening to some of it yesterday, and it was quite interesting.

I like Schoenberg a little, and Ives as well. The whole matrix thing was a neat approach to music but I don't think it surpassed conventional writing style ala Beethoven.

I'm quite partial to Debussey as well, he had some very unique chord voicings (though he isn't post modern like Ives).

and speaking of post modern, I quite like the ballets that Stravinksy wrote.

was just passing time listening to Snow Goose by Camel, such a fantastic album.

I just find it interesting, good atonal music (especially those composers) to me is very...expressionist I guess is the word. I suppose it could be classified as part of the same artistic movement (wiki'd... it is lol fail on my part).

It would be interesting to hear atonal metal (does that exist? Is it any good?)

And **** yeah Camel. I'm partial to Mirage, Supertwister and Earthrise are solid tracks. The album art alone is killer.

atonal metal to me (at least along the lines of what they were doing) would be something like Nespithe.

and yeah, Debussey is an expressionist composer, much like Chopin.

I personally have trouble choosing a favorite among Camel albums, and I have all of them up to Raindance.

I'd have to listen closely to Nespithe, I think Demilich play around with the idea but tend towards having a tonal center.

Really? Chopin? He fits squarely in with the Romanticists I think.

On a sidenote, I didn't really associate krautrock with prog until I looked at the OP again, but it makes sense. Ash Ra Tempel's Schwingungen is trippy as balls.

Ash Ra Temple owns you. If you haven't, check some of the Italian prog bands up there - they had some really quality stuff and I've been listening to Per Un Amico lots lately.

Chopin was sort of inbetween the Romantic and Post Modern eras, where he started to lay ground work for more expressionist composers with how he played the piano forte.

And yes, they do tend to a tonal center but make allusions around it and the riffs never seem to settle if you get my drift. They don't feel as if they resolve, which would be the opposite of how Azagoth wrote Blessed and Altars.

alternatively, you could look into modal jazz or such.

Atonal is grand, but the best contemporary stuff is ala Xenakis, Varese, Stockhausen, Scelsi and Nono. Such beautiful artistry.

show


Also, Ash Ra Tempel is indeed for champs.

Agreed about Camel...But I'm partial to Moonmadness and Mirage.

me some modal jazz

This thread is made for me, methinks...

A decade ago, I would have said the self-titled. Now it's Snow Goose all the way. Bonus points for ridiculous title.

it's Snow Goose or Mirage for me. Moonmadness was my favorite first but I feel like it doesn't well as an album compared to the previous albums.

and proggbass you should check out this PFM live album i was mentioned at the top of this page, they really go wild live

RE: atonal metal, Sculptured played around with it (one of the songs on Apollo Ends had a solo written with 12-tone serialism), but I don't know if they ever wrote entire atonal pieces.
