The Otherness

Rae Sremmurd – No Type

 

This is just a theory with no delusions to being a universal theory – it likely only applies to me… but even if it could be applied universally, the examples of the theory would be VERY SPECIFICALLY different for every individual… so you know, take all this with a grain of salt…

 

One of the things I love most about *some* music is its sense of otherness – I’ve ranted about that feeling as far as Eno & Byrnes early collaboration goes here…. its not just that its not from my own culture (whatever that is exactly) but its that it immediately conjures up a strong, idiosyncratic culture regardless of it being real or fiction…

 

Mbuti Pygmies of the Ituri rainforest – Darkness Is Good

 

For example when I listen to music of the Mbuti Pygmies, it isn’t because I identify with them or their music – no amount of prosthetics will make me a pygmy. But to hear even half a bar of their music instantly transports my imagination.. my eyes glaze over, there’s nobody home… Same goes for a couple of tunes off this album by Rae Sremmurd….

its the otherness…
