Manchester Intentionally performs in an unintentional-sounding way. After graduate studies at UIUC, he accomplishes this by ‘unlearning’ years of training, Utilizes disparate and alien instruments to avoid falling back on training, Intensively formulates a unique language through isolation, both in Improvised and notated musics, and makes wide use of extended techniques. After years in an urban environment, Manchester began addressing the mechanical sounds of a city as antithetical to his aesthetic goal - perhaps caused by a long stint living in rural Alaska. To wit, the causal reason for the lack of organization in his music is its emulation of nature’s rhythms.

The physical world creates many rhythms that would be regular if the system they existed in were not so complex. As humans, we lack the competency to create rhythms which will adapt to complex systems, only simple ones. Despite the advent of chaos theory, our only answer time and again is to seek to dominate the variables to make our creations stand up. For Joshua, making music with a discernible beat is a reflection and reinforcement of these fruitless manmade dead ends.

It is his agenda to bring these issues to the fore with his art. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
