Heya kind folks. Since there's so much shit to listen to and never enough time, I thought some focus needs be applied. Hence my creation of themed months. I intend to have a clearly defined focus for my listening for each month starting now. It is not the first time I attempted to apply some system into my music listening - I remember doing shit like focusing solely on finnish death metal demos from some period of time and things like that. I found it makes one explore the area more thoroughly and it's basically a way of discovering new music. Last year I did stuff like Italian month, I think it was March, when I listened mostly to Italian contemporary composers, then I did a month when I focused mostly on John Cage - he's a composer I'd been neglecting before and a one whose body of work calls for at least a month of listening. Then I think I did a month of listening mostly to one label, etc etc. I find these really satisfying. Has anybody ever tried something like that? This year I'm doing Frenchuary (frech classical, mostly modern), only Stockhausen - some other month, and then a label I wanted to do for a while - NEOS. I think I should do a NWN productions only metal month some time. Maybe let's talk about how we organize our listening time and shit like that? Dunno.
