Re: Why is IDM defined as intelligent?

A bit off topic but I read up on Aphex Twin after I joined the forum and he had this comment:

Quote:
I just think it's really funny to have terms like that. It's basically saying, 'this is intelligent and everything else is stupid.' It's really nasty to everyone else's music. (laughs) It makes me laugh, things like that. I don't use names. I just say that I like something or I don't.
—Aphex Twin
Lol.

Pretty much an essential read for any serious academic work on IDM (or any electronic dance music at all, for that matter), whether or not you agree with the guy.
That's a seriously good book for anyone even remotely interested in the history of electronic music. I've read it a few times now. Simon Reynolds is a very good music critic in general, his columns for the Guardian are also worth checking out. I don't always agree with his points, but I'm always interested in what he has to say.
