, really. As in breakcore
, potty-mouth sampling
, or any other the other genres of experimental electronic dance music*
that developed at the very end
of the 20th Century
. More, immersive
than ambient. As in, some middle-aged guy in hemp pants
playing an Arp
accompanied by flute and flanger
Sinecore typically consists of a progression of dissonant
rhythmic impules. It relies on rise and fall
of complex, recirculating sounds for structure, instead of being based on drumkit
patterns. Without melody or harmony, sinecore presents and then destroys sonic contexts
. This simply means that you're presented with mood, a feeling.. a reference point that is then unexpectedly shattered.
Imagine phone sex at 22Khz reversed and interspersed with taser coitus.
The musician Panacea
first utilizied the term with his release "Sinecore" (Mille Plateaux
). This album was really just a study
in sinusouidal minimalism realized in an earlier work, "Brasilia
). "Brasilia" attempts to convey the struggle of a city that has sealed itself in; and in doing so, it goes beyond to strike a paradoxical chord sounding a release of the self
As in chanting ohm until I leave my body.
Sinecore, taken in this context, demonstrates music as a tool of consciousness (attaining, deleting, perceiving, whatever). There has been much investigation into the use of sound for shaping the self
, the most concrete being Hemi-Sync
developed at the Monroe Institute
. However, OOBE
's or quitting smoking
hardly have anything to do with this genre
. Sinecore is about breaking down barriers.
