The issue with commitment to one's interests is that it takes extended amounts of time to extract what you want from large amounts of whatever subject you may be involved in. Reading takes analysis, engineering takes analysis, music takes analysis. Why? Because each one of these things is a detailed expression of an art-form. Architecture, literature, composition. Details are necessary part to making something great.
As such, I've spent a more extensive time than usual exploring several facets of my primary musical tastes. Whereas previous articles were on my experience with artists I had time to dwell on, more recently I've been dedicating my time to exploring several works within a smaller time frame as a way to challenge my analytical skills. I must say I'm rather pleased with the results! A wonderful blending of avant-garde, industrial, black metal and nearly everything inbetween.
