Chapter 289: Frontier

Electronic indie & modern classical

As we near the end of the Anthology’s first edition, we’ve explored so much musical space, but there will always be new frontiers. Each of these tracks from the new schools of academic and classical music, and the indie scene they’ve begun to interbreed with, cultivate a virgin space of their own. “I Can’t Concentrate” is a mesmerizing algorithm; “The Gate” an alien sanctuary. “Partita” seems to quote A Chorus Line before exploding into a busy traffic jam chorale. “Canticles Of The Sky” is the furthest thing from busy, a ray of light stretching beyond the horizon.
