Have you listed to the A Duck in a Tree podcast produced by Zoviet France?

I enjoy some experimental music quite a bit.  92.7% of experimental music makes me want to burn ants with a magnifying glass and the sun while saying muhahhahaha.

Can you provide a short list of things to check out for experimental made after 2005?

I need to check out that podcast still. I'll have to get back to you with a list. I made this list awhile back but it's mostly older stuff:

In general, "experimental" is a very big category. If I knew more about what you like and don't like I could probably make better suggestions. Other people on this forum may be more up on post-2005 stuff than I am.

Thanks for that list.  I have quite a few of the albums you listed.  Some are completely unknown to me and I will check them out.

My definition of Experimental music is not quite as broad as yours.  For example, Lustmord - The Place Where Dark Stars Hang and Eno - Ambient 4 aren't albums I'd classify as Experimental.  Both of them easily fit into other genres.

Experimental for me is "difficult" music that doesn't easily fit into other genres.  By difficult, I mean it's challenging to listen to.  Nurse With Wound certainly makes Experimental music most of the time.  Hafler Trio.  Zoviet France.  Fossil Aerosol Mining Project.  Some of the early Avant Garde electronic music is still Experimental, such as Karlheinz Stockhausen and Bernard Parmegiani.

There are no hard and fast rules.  I'm just saying we have different opinions of what Experimental music is today.

Sure, and that is also why the title of my list is "noise/experimental/soundscape/ambient" rather than just "experimental". It's a broad area. For me, all this music is interconnected. Nowadays everything is hyper-subgenre-ized.
