Discover the Apprehension Engine: Brian Eno Called It "the Most Terrifying Musical Instrument of All Time"
With a normal instrument, says Korven in <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lTYPvArbGo&feature=emb_title">the Great Big Story Video above</a>, "you're expecting it to have a sound that is pleasing." But with the Apprehension Engine, "the goal is to just produce sounds that, in this case, are disturbing." What we hear is less music than a sonic approximation of the abyss itself, which somehow emerges from his manipulation of a variety of strings, bars, wheels, and bows attached to a wooden box — as analog a device as one would ever encounter in the 21st century.

Devil's interval: What makes music sound scary?
Played in sequence or together, the notes F and B clash in a way that feels twitchy, unnatural, and foreboding… the demonic combo was taboo in medieval Europe and referred to as <em>diablous in musica</em>—literally, ”Satan in music.” But it was later embraced by the likes of Berlioz and Beethoven—and, much later, by Black Sabbath and Metallica.

Quimi Portet: «Lo que yo siempre he hecho es música popular contemporánea»
Yo habría sido el superraro y Manolo el superpachanguero. Pero la gracia del encuentro placentero entre la pachanga y el underground fue lo que hizo a la banda. No fue un choque, y ninguno renunciaba a nada. Simplemente nos limitamos el uno al otro.

Battiato: Il re del mondo
Nel 1979, Franco Battiato arriva per la prima volta con <em>L'era del cinghiale bianco</em> a quella sintesi tra musica pop, fruibile, e musica colta, temi profondi e ironia, che sono la sua cifra stilistica. “Il Re del mondo” è la canzone paradigmatica dell'album ed è una delle prime che tratta il tema delle illusioni nella vita dell'uomo, rifacendosi ad antichi miti esoterici.

Radiohead’s lawsuit against Lana Del Rey shows how all music is stolen
Hip-hop and rap are eternally riddled with claims of creative theft. The entire genre of jazz is essentially a study in plagiarism […] That pop music tends to overuse the same infamous four-chord progression doesn’t help things, either. To assert that any song is entirely original would be to say it stands apart from thousands of years of musical history […]
