CFCE 87.8 FM Weekly Genre: Free Jazz

As hard as it is to pin down the genre of free Jazz (frankly, I don’t believe it’s intended to be “pinned down”), the infamous style is surprisingly straightforward. A great deal of explanation can be found in John Coltrane’s additions to the genre.

I love free Jazz; it was the gateway that welcomed me into a sonic world of limitless possibilities and unimaginable creativity. A world so extreme that was yet so inviting. ... read more

Field Recordings are transportive. They take the listener to the most unlikely and mundane of places only to make them wholly unique experiences. Its the result of hearing normal sounds in an unusual way that makes field recordings so particularly cathartic. Some may wonder the appeal behind them going so far as to say that those same sounds can be generated by just stepping outside your front door, but in my eyes (ears), the experience is much more than that. These recordings are, first and ... read more

CFCE 87.8 FM Weekly Genre: EAI

Severe Ingenuity

EAI, simply put, is the genre of no limitations; no preconceptions or assumptions, only improvisation conjured up on a moment's notice. What is allowed is what's not allowed. This unique genre intentionally explores sound before it is disputed and ordered, exploring these raw unfamiliar territories in search of a greater understanding of music. While EAI is similar in concept to extreme genres, such as Free Jazz and the exploration of chaos and ... read more

Hi, I’d love to see reviews for your high rated and incredibly experimental, underground LPs. Albums like Symphony Natura, Before Driving to the Chapel and Private Parts don’t get the attention they deserve. I’m sure there are many others that would love to read your thoughts on these abstract behemoths as well!

I’m a 14 year old Producer/Rapper and I am finally, just now releasing music. It’s a 11 Minute album with 8 songs. (I’m a fan of short SoundCloud trap music) Share your honest thoughts, please!
