    There are tons of great versions of that piece. Ravel's, for example, which has a saxophone in it.

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor have the distinction of having the single most depressing song I've ever heard.

    Props to them for that.

    ON HEARING YAMASHITA

    By Matanya Ophee (1984)


    He walks on stage, a beat-up Ramirez in his hand. Sheepishly smiling and bowing to the audience Japanese style, almost like asking forgiveness for intruding on this august gathering of GGís (Guitar Greats). Like a shy little boy asked by Daddy to play for the guests who came for supper. One almost felt sorry for him and wanted to pat him on the head. Thatís all right young man, you donít have to play if you donít wanna. And as he sits down still bowing to the audience in the process, something unbelievable takes place right before your eyes. The shy little boy turns into a giant. Obviously, there is some internal process of concentration going on in the artistís mind. The visual effect on the audience, perhaps not intended, is that we are made to partake in this transformation of the boy into a passionate and mature artist. Dr. Jekyll becomes Mr. Hyde. He hasnít played one note yet, and already possessed each one of us, body and soul. There was no escaping him now!

    Sleep is also really, really depressing. More melancholy than bleak, but depressing nonetheless.

    Ah yes, Dead Flag Blues. I absolutely will not argue the bleakness of it, and it is a fine example of music. But for me to be depressed by music, the tragedy has to be on a more personal scale, which is probably why Pain of Salvation is one of my favorite bands.

    I'm not quite sure about this one. The original was emotionaly empty, but this version is a bit too noisy for my taste. The album name on the other hand reminded me of this.

    Well, seeing as Big Black are one of the prototypical Noise Rock bands, that'd make sense. Personally, that's one of the elements I love about it. Steve Albini's stuff kinda speaks to me, I guess. Me and my friends kinda find ourselves not quite nerds, not quite screwups, not quite "cool". We get kicked out of the coffee shops, we get kicked out of the sketchy alleys, we get kicked out of the gaming shops. So, the wall-of-noise, pointlessly provocative, unrelentingly ugly aesthetic has a lot of appeal.

    If that makes any sense.

    It makes sense. I guess there is a similar reason for rough punk sound or scratchy vocals in hard rock music. The closest piece I can think of, that I like, is probably this one by Justice (even if it's a wholly different thing).

    One of the things I like about noise rock is that there isn't any angst required for it. I mean, sure, you'll have some plaintive or angsty songs, but the majority of the output isn't like that.

    Similarly, although Big Black is aggressive and such, it's not required- you can have noise rock bands that are playful (although, admittedly, these tend to be Japanese).

    For me, the joy of noise rock is the chaos of it. It's so...personal.

    Well, noise rock in the hardcore punk tradition, and it'd be a stretch to say the latter didn't beget the former, at least in America, is pretty uniformly aggressive. Or at least aggressively apathetic.

    If aggresive apathy grinded the thread to a stop, then maybe something softly energetic might revive it?

    Yea.

    Also, my band's releasing our first single on Friday, and it sounds damn snazzy if I do say so myself. If you've got a facebook, stay updated here, but rest assured I'll be bothering you guys again on Friday.

    Also, Gael came & saw us play last week, and it was awesome meeting him.

    I've come across the remixes and mashups done by this young, French fellow named Madeon. He does a damn good job.

    Here is a 39 song mashup and here is a remix of a Deadmau5 song.

    I was pondering getting a Launchpad, which is the box Madeon uses... I thought it was too limited until I saw his stuff.

    Also, Pogo. Not nearly as flashy as Madeon, but some of the coolest sampling I've ever heard. This one is all taken from samples from Alice in Wonderland.

    Blackfield, the Steven Wilson project? He tries and he tries and he can get damn melodramatic, but nothing on the soul-crushing, bleak, malevolent abyss that is Dead Flag Blues.

    Also, my band's first single is now available for your listening and downloading pleasure. Recorded, mixed, and mastered by yours truly. Please, lemme know what y'all think.
