Another NYC legend passes. If you don't know his music, you should. Master of drone, noise and dissonance.

Big fan of The Ascension and some of his other early works but hasn’t really dug in beyond that. Found out about Theoretical Girls yesterday and enjoying listening to the compilation now

Definitely an incredible musician. I can hear his influence all over the music I listen to. Also one of my first exposures to philosophically driven avant-garde music

Alot of Branca's stuff sounds pretty similar to alot of krautrock like Neu! and Can, so if you've listened to Omar, who was heavily influenced by those bands, you've probably already been exposed to some of those musical ideas without even realizing it. Basically he's one of the few who took punk music into the composition world. 

 

In this age of spic-and-span smooth pop-friendly digital tunes, Branca's noisy, abrasive approach is a much-needed antidote.

Wow this shit is pretty crazy.  Especially considering when it came out.  I'm digging it.  Cedric made a post about him on twitter too.

Ahh cool - rather enjoying what I've found on youtube.
