Still noise. "Noise.. like 69 Eyes?", "nah... not like that.. a bit noisier!".There is that one CD + book where they play experimental music for people at countryside africa, who have no experience of experimental music of any kind, and I recall not even experience of headphones or music in general. Then reactions are in the book. Ground Fault was involved in publishing it. There was sort of exotic element that may not go well today. It is interesting to think that the chaotic and fairly synthetic sounding progressive metal music (= read the contemporary production) may sound to normal person almost as T.E.F. A lot going on, guitar resembles as controlled distortion patterns, drums less about rhythm as everybody seems to be in middle of "solo" all the time. Like would fast throb of Bloodyminded analogue synth sound that different from triggered drum of death metal bands? Or if mass of downtuned guitar is different that VCO blasting via distortion? The ordinary dude may not hear much difference. It would be curious to be able to hear it like that for a while again.

Fussing with the cable was a bit distracting and felt archaic in the context. I guess some decent bluetooth headphones would be smoother for next time. I assumed there would be a humorous undercurrent to this, but that certainly wasn't the goal, and I'm glad that wasn't the only result. I hate "weirding out the squares" as a mission, and I don't find it fun either. I was honestly just curious. Some people from North America have commented that they're surprised at the relative openness and adjacent frames of reference a lot of people had, in comparison to what they'd expect from around where they are, but I wonder how different it would really be. I plan to try it in different cultural contexts in the future, but I imagine I'll hit the limit of variation in reactions and reflections fairly quick.
