To your disappointment I have no musical education nor I can´t play any instrument. But around 7-8 years ago I had a vision, that there exists true music hidden under layer of mainstream crap and I was blessed with the knowledge I found.
Actually I have no idea how that happened, but gradually from listening what everyday teenager listened my curiosity in taste yearned for something more meaningful in depth. Instead developing a taste in a genre, something went really wrong in the process (actually it was what should happen to everyone) I started listening everything... and literally from metal to classical music with rap and soul in the middle, instrumental and psychedelic trance on top of it. And up to now I can not determine what style or genre a song or an artist is quite often, neither it does´nt matter to me much. Vaguely I can determine a direction. One aspect of music is its quality and from what system you listen it: I researched once into music recording and technical aspect and decent mid-priced amp and headphones made my experience listening music a whole new experience.
Sometimes I listen classical music, sometimes its just instrumental, but sometimes I need a beat or a bit of bass. And they all help to study - it all matters how I feel what helps me concentrate most. And alongside I have gathered music from all ages and all genres. Just to mention few pearls among instrumental music: Ludovico Einaudi, Mike Oldfield. This list would be endless to post all the good stuff. And after all a matter of taste is always subjective. But meanwhile listening I often investigate how they come to do that music, where it got popular who influenced them and the trajectory is interesting. Same system works for me in Movies and Literature and patterns emerge often and that is interesting part, that my brain like to detect and member them.
By the way the song Hurt (Johnny Cash), posted above is not actually Cash´s writing as often thought. Even lyrics are changed a little. It was put on paper by Trent Reznor (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmQ_ANFOo1M
), who by the way is real figure and innovative musician in industrial-rock-syntepop genre, he was blown away by the Cash version.
When we come back to noise music, then Kraftwerk was/is something, that made a noise music, that but the start into "weird instrument" cult that is common nowadays. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXa9tXcMhXQ
But after all I am just a dilettante in a field of music. And there is no better way to end this with a something equally amazing as you posted: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbxgYlcNxE8
(Last minute and half are the key here). I will leave the story behind this piece for you to discover if interested: Who would be mad enough to use Drilled army, cannons, artillery in his composition?
