The latest publication from musicologist Camille Béra:
“From Plato to Dodecahedron: The contribution of Ligétian textures and electronic music to the compositions of an extreme metal band”
In this study, we will develop the idea that Extreme Metal, in search of generic renewal due to stagnantion in its musical language since the end of the 2000s, tries to appropriate, or at least adapt to its discourse, some of the codes of contemporary art music. As part of this hypothesis, we propose to illustrate, with examples chosen from the repertoire of the band Dodecahedron, the wide variety of processes implemented in a recent album (2017). This article will discuss the fusion between Plato’s solids, “textures” borrowed from composer GyörgyLigeti, and also electronic music.
