• Hyperspecificity

    Every once in a while, I come across a hyperspecific sub-genre of music that makes me say “huh?” I’m not talking about the slightly specific stuff: your grindcore, your post-dubstep, your liquid DnB; I’m talking about the stuff that’s so extremely specific that I can only imagine it describing one artist: “baroquecore”, “klezmer metal”, etc. I’m somewhat into this as a general concept; Makyo even compiled an earlier list of hyper-specific playlists, so let’s take a second to talk about hyper-specific genres!

    Over the past…uh, few years, I’ve done something that feels uniquely furry, and uniquely me: handed several different artists a prompt of just “here’s a song I love, you have total artistic freedom, draw what it makes you feel.” The results have all been fantastic, and I’ve wanted to make a post for a while which gathers all of these into one place, with some thoughts about them.
