Listen to Brian Eno and anyone he touches. This includes the Talking Heads, Bowie, Peter Gabriel, Robert Fripp, U2, Devo, James, John Cale, and others. Also listen to the Velvet Underground. And the Clash. And Sonic Youth. And the Pixies. And Bauhaus. And Elvis Costello. And Frank Zappa. And John Coltrane. And Stravinski. And John Cage. And Harry Partch. And Philip Glass. And Steve Reich. And Gustav Mahler. And Lou Harrison. And the Kronos Quartet. And Dimitri Shostakovich. Now I'm into hip-hop. I enjoy Public Enemy. Gang Starr. KRS-One. J5. ISPs. Shadow. Redman. For a retrospective, the Beats and Rhymes set by Rhino is excellent.
