(Gimme Some of That) Ol’ Atonal Music

The marriage of country and atonal music, a match made in…well..not sure. But I love it.

Some references to keep in mind:

  • Schoenberg refers to the influential composer Arnold Schoenberg, who many credit with the birth of atonal, or 12 tone music. A big influence on Frank Zappa.

  • Alban Berg was another influential atonal composer.

  • John Cage, an American composer, best known for his composition 4′33″, which I might title, musicians in a room, not playing, with 4’33” of background noise.

I absolutely love this song, and offer a shout out to my brother, Stu, who taught me all about such things.

With all this in mind, check it out.
