New Electronic and Chance Music
A blog featuring fresh electronic and chance music.
New Electronic and Chance Music is a project started by the composer David R. Eagle, who also maintains a personal blog at davidreagle.com.
I have been fascinated with new and experimental music since I was a teenager in the early 1990s when I first heard recordings of works by John Cage, Morton Feldman, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Edgard Varese, and other masters of modernism. When I started composing in 2003, I continued to be impressed by the seemingly infinite variety of styles and approaches in contemporary music. My blog celebrates this rich diversity of new music through reviews of many different types of electronic and chance-based works, from minimalism to indeterminacy to sound art to noise.

New Electronic and Chance Music is a blog about contemporary music. It features daily posts about newly released and upcoming works that draw upon various aspects of chance operations, indeterminacy, electronic music, microtonality, minimalism, musique concrete, noise, non-Western music systems, and post-serial technique. This site is dedicated to exploring the diversity of music being created today by composers and performers who employ these techniques in their work.
Today I have come to give you the good news. The good news is that electronic and chance music have undergone a renaissance in the past few years.
This site is a blog about this new music. In particular, it will highlight recordings and performances that are freely available online, so that you can hear them for yourself.
I’m not going to try to define what “electronic” or “chance” mean. These terms are now long-established in the literature, and I don’t know how to improve on them. I hope people will explore the topics here even if they don’t usually think of themselves as fans of electronic or chance music–or even if they’ve never heard of these terms before.
The music featured on this blog is made with a variety of methods and machines, from pure electronics to software to hacked toys to homemade instruments. If you like what you hear, please leave a comment and share the music with your friends!
