Get a connoisseur to listen, and he can repeat every word spoken.

Requires a bit of ear "training" if you will.

*shrugs*
With Opera, you can hear that something is going on, even if it sounds like wailing, you can hear that the pitch changes, that the instrumentation is playing something, that there's words, etc. Even if you don't like it, you can hear what's going on.

But eh.

That's the thing.

I'm not pretending to hear something magnificent, I actually DO. You hear static, I hear breathing music.

The best Avant Garde musicians are able to turn the sounds of pots, pans, propellers, elevators, and mixing cement into music. I'm not kidding.

You just have to have your ear tuned it its "frequency" I guess.

They never fail to impress.
I shit my pants every time I listen to either album.

Incredibly stoked to see these guys at Maryland.

Their only two albums.

First album, Seepia, is frantic obliteration through aural hypnox Cthulhu.
Second album, Outre, is omnipotent crawling unfathomable chaos Cthulhu.

Nah, it's got more to do with the fact that everything they produced is garbage.

As for Portal, not the kind of music I would normally listen to. Though they seem to be quite enjoyable in the right mood and situation.

I wish my ear wasn't messed up right now so that I could actually attempt to listen to this guys, they sound pretty good so far, but I can't really hear out of my right ear so I can't analyze.

PTC I downloaded Seepia last night and it frantically obliterated my face. Seriously. I wish I had've heard Seepia first. I'm still no fan of Outre, but Seepia owns. Hard.

Today during lunch break at work I sat in my car and put Seepia at almost full volume, leaned back and closed my eyes. Was the first time I heard them like that, and it was definitely intense. Very inspiring.
