Reshaping debates on failure as a classy class, eldritch Priest indicates failure to be a hugely doubtful suggestion. The publication frames contemporary experimental composition as a deviant type of sound paintings whose affective and formal components think about present concerns in modern tradition, and gives analyses of musical works and function practices which are infrequently heard, not to mention regarded as major cultural phenomena - exhibiting the function that obscurity and the esoteric have in articulating present cultural realities. formidable in content material and experimental in its technique, Boring Formless Nonsense will problem and fracture your perspectives on failure, creativity, and experimental music.
