I'm a big fan of serial and generally atonal music (a la Schoenberg, Berg, Webern, etc.) and so have composed a number of pieces influenced by this approach. Also loving modern bands who use the same approaches (Blotted Science, for example).

So, I guess my questions are: have you used this approach in your own music (either compositionally or in improvisation) and, if so, how have you found it?

I've been know to dabble. I've never used it for an entire piece, but I've had sections that use it. It's a bit old fashioned, but it's a good cheat when I don't feel like coming up with some other pitch material

I haven't written any serial music since I was in school, but I did enjoy it. One piece was played live with real instruments; it was very gratifying to hear that.

All the time.

You can use it creatively and non traditionally to get out of some real jams.

That's one of those things I've been kinda interested in, but never tried to get into. I saw this a while back.

Which kinda motivated me to try to learn more about it, but I got distracted by youtube and never actually looked anything up.

Maybe now that you've reminded me I'll look into it.

I always really enjoyed this video - metal tone rows!

I haven't used it too much outside of solo comps/performances, trying to incorporate it into my band's new album to get into a new creative headspace. Love using non-serial atonal stuff for free-jams though
