Arcade Fire — The Suburbs (Live At Lollapalooza Brasil 2014)
"Essa música é sobre saudade"
my personal style is called “i don’t have the money for my preferred aesthetic”
WINTER SUITE | | | a winter mix diffusing genre classifications + the electronic vs. acoustic controversy (across several categories such as film scores, jazz & shoegaze, with alternating elements of acoustic [harp strings, music boxes, high piano keys], nature [ice drips, wind, snowstorms], and electronic [synths, samples])
Rather than positing electronic and acoustic as diametric opposites, this mix highlights unique ways of complementing differences or even fusions in cross-over styles that, surprisingly to some, join to create a cohesive atmosphere. Nostalgia for the pre-technology age decrying the ‘state’ of today’s music dismisses electronics as coldly mechanic or inauthentic noise. This aims for a more expansive look at technology’s diverse possibilities of expression and innovation. Including musicians who diffuse genre classifications (often people seen as “lightweight”, outside of areas of exclusivity) and incorporate old-fashioned elements in new ways, breathing life into the old with their fresh perspectives.
