His art is more about the entertaining visual aspect of his method than it is about the musical result.
Sure, to clarify though, I'm not making a solid genre argument by referring to his style as techno so much as I'm making a method argument. That is, whether or not it fits established expectations of particular techno genres/sub-genres is less important from my point of view that it fits an idea of what techno is, i.e., the sound of machines. That said, I think that it's fair to call it minimal abstract techno, I'm not really sure what else you'd call it. It is a rhythmic style that is enforced by the looping nature of his methods.
Innovative method is also important for artists like Aphex Twin, but like so many other producers his method is a secret alchemy that's kept hidden from view - the end product has always been what mattered most. Actually in his case his mischievous refusal to talk openly and honestly about his method is part of his image.
Sure, no doubt, and, in fact, my criticism of live acts is often that they put method over substance. Here I mean substance with respect to the genre in question. Consequently, when I attend noise festivals my expectations are very different than when I attend a warehouse party.

I do think that what Graham does is interesting. I would probably refer to it as "techno turntablism." It has many of the quirks of turntablism with some of the aesthetic of techno.

Back from the dead, with a video from when I started this post. Is your techno better or worse than this? Do you put in more or less effort to obtain better or worse results?

This is a little newer, is it better than it was when I posted this thread? Was it worth spending that much time to develop this idea a little further?

Related, but not. Do you want this guy in your band?

Hehe, excellent. Although to misquote Laurence Olivier - my dear boy, you really should try muting.

i only compare my music to what's in my music collection.
my music is definitely not better. nowhere near.
but am always working on it, in between speed scrabble games.

I found this guy Okus Dolphin on Youtube. The inexplicable singing, the inexplicable furniture arrangement... I find it hard to look away. But he seems to be having more fun than me.

Catchy. Is it worth it when we stop having fun?

If I were to hear this without seeing the video, I don’t know that I would have burst out laughing more than once. I actually like the song, and although in a much more structured format than The Shaggs, it still breathes unaffected(?) originality with those unique vocals…and for some reason, in the vein of “[found] it hard to look away,” I couldn’t take my eyes off of his slack belt, as he swayed to and fro…and I wonder if this may require counseling or therapy to any degree?

And, no, for me, it’s all about the fun.
