This second effort makes an attempt to keep things minimal, but that doesn’t mean it’s quiet with only one or two instruments. In the classical music world, minimalist means,
a reductive style or school of modern music utilizing only simple sonorities, rhythms, and patterns, with minimal embellishment or orchestrational complexity, and characterized by protracted repetition of figurations, obsessive structural rigor, and often a pulsing, hypnotic effect.
Admittedly, this second mixtape is a little less minimalist than the first. Someday, I would like to create an intricate piece of pure minimalist music, but for now I’m still learning. I’m also experimenting with electronic sounds. Furthermore, I think this music is a little more listenable for the average person than pure minimalist pieces.
