about

Abstract Electronica (AE)

Definition:
AE is a specific subgenre of Electronica. AE is NOT dance music, it is neither EDM nor IDM but listening music (preferably on headphones).

Goal:
To explore the thin line between harmony and dissonance. In doing so, it musically expresses ambivalence and individualism. It is therefore a musical take on Existentialism.

Musical Tenets:
AE is typically downtempo (80-120 BPM)instrumental electronic music.
AE borrows its arrangement patterns and rules more from Rock and Jazz music and does not follow the loop - based approach of EDM.
AE embraces atonality and dissonance and does not recognize "wrong" notes. Unlike noise music, the backbone of any AE track is a discernible harmonic structure such as a musical scale and/or chord progression.
AE is pitch - driven, not beat - driven.
The human voice is simply another timbre and can never be expected to convey meaning or indeed express anything - because there is nothing to say. It is therefore largely absent in AE.
