Experimental Music Playlist: Stereo

Sounds for two ears.

Gahlord Dewald :: 6/22/22 :: Mānoa, Hawai‘i

We have two ears.crow eurorack module Things that make sounds. We use them to know the space around us, near and far. Music can help us use and appreciate having ears, understanding where we are in relation to sounds.

This episode of Experimental Playlist includes recordings that place sounds differently in our ears, sometimes in an extreme way and sometimes in a very subtle way. This is music to enjoy your ears to.

If you enjoy hearing these sounds with your ears, please consider being a part of my newsletter so you will know when the next playlist comes out.

An experimental playlist with different sounds for left and right ears.


I made this list so you could hear these sounds. It’s about 45 minutes long. You may enjoy setting aside time to look out the window or draw or do some light task while you listen. Whatever is comfortable for you. Some sounds will only be audible on nicer speakers than a laptop or phone.

  1. Laura Andel combines written music with a variety of approaches to improvisation and conducting to create different symmetries between the written and non-written.
  2. Cecilia Lopez works across the media of performance, sound, installation and the creation of sound devices and systems. Brandon Lopez works at the fringes of jazz, free improvisation, noise and new music.
  3. Graciela Castillo, along with a small group of composers, created the Experimental Music Center (Centro de Música Experimental) at the National University of Córdoba during the mid 60s.
  4. Sunk Heaven is a no-input mixer project of experimental musician Austin Sley Julian.
  5. Gahlord Dewald (hey that's me!) is an experimental musician, improvisor, and player of composed music. This whole website is about him so I guess just click most of the links here. He doesn't often write about himself in the 3rd person. He promises.
