Playlist The Underground serie

Since the development of the technology after the second World War, brand-new genres of music came out relentlessly. One of this was electronic, that had his highest peak during the ’80, but since the beginning was a cradle the experimentation in music. One for all, Minimalism was born in this context, bringing a huge fracture into the panorama of the time.

Considered more as a concept art than music, Minimalism grew up in the idea of use limited amount of materials in order to create outstanding composition. The songs, long or short tracks mostly voiceless, are an evolving sequence of refined sounds, that proceed linearly towards an inconclusive end.

In this playlist are listed for or the most important artists related to the scene: La Monte Young, Terry Riley, Eliane Radigue and Arvo Pärt. Their sounds contributed to create the basics for one of the least known genre of electronic, ancestor of drone and noise.
