It is pointless to talk about what music sounds like.

What is the true “substance” of so-called experimental music? Is it the “sonic palette” or the manner in which sounds are arranged in time? What separates Network Glass from 100gecs? Both spend too much time on Twitch anyway.

The difference? Network Glass doesn’t bully the sounds. He doesn’t push them around. He lets them speak for themselves without forcing them into anything, be it the grid or literary context.

Laugh Now Laugh Later is a handbook against Sonic Oppression. What do the sounds want to do?

It is my belief that music’s “substance” is a delicate symbiosis between “form” and “content”. If you let the sounds do what they want to do then you take an important step back from your personal desires and begin to approach something truly experimental. Network Glass has taken that step.

Say no to sonic bullying!
