      Better

      Does it have to be German?

      What do you mean by 'experimental' in this context?

      Because i'd recommend anything from Snow Patrol, but they're not German and i'm not sure if its 'experimental'

      Winterkälte. You don't get much more experimental than power noise.

      Snow Patrol are part Scottish/Northern Irish, so they sound a little bit German like Frankie Boyle. lol

      (That was a joke, partly endorsed by Frankie Boyle, who could not be present as he is being attended to by a hooker.)

      I just happened to be listening to Basinski when i read this. Anyway, listen to the "Disintegration Loops." A wonderful, etheral, composition about the life-death cycle; ironically Basinski first played this album to his friends and family whilst the Twin Towers where collapsing...

      If anyone's interested... "The Disintegration Loops" is based on Basinski's attempts to salvage earlier recordings made on magnetic tape, by transferring them into digital format; however, the tape had physically deteriorated to the point that, as it passed by the read/write head, the ferrite detached from the plastic backing and fell off.

      Edit: Most of the music recommended isn't strictly experimental... especially that Allein Allein crap. It has a chorus for **** sake and even a pop song structure!! As does Junge by Die Artze (God, it's terrible)

      Take a look at musique concrete (one of the first electronic music genres) and obviously the Minimalist composers: Phillip Glass, Steve Reich, Terry Riley (particulary "In C")


      If you want something more accesible you could take a look at "popular music" that integrates experimental influences... Velvet Underground, Pink Floyd, Brian Eno.

      Another type of experimental electronic music is "glitch." Seriously get the album 94 diskont by Oval...

      Strangulated Beatoff's are the oddest thing I've heard in quite some time, and that's saying something. As for Power Noise, well I'm not sure what that is...Power Electronics and Noise are great, but Power Noise hm. Guess I will have to click that youtube later when I can, although off the top of my head the only German noise I can think of is Sutcliffe Jugend - which of course isn't German at all, just sounds it.

      Why is this a dare? Tago Mago should be required listening, along with Neu and Amon Düül II.

      mmmm, krautrock.
