I’ve loved Jake Mandell’s music for years now. He’s always produced startling, innovative music while never losing sight of melody or form. ‘Parallel Processes,’ the first album I heard by him, is a classic electronic record. If you like electronic music even slightly, it’s one you have to have in your collection.
So I was surprised to find his name attached to the musicial aptitude test above. At first I thought it was a different bloke. Then, maybe a joke or some elaborate promo device for a new album? But, so far, it seems to be kosher. Jake is apparently now studying to be a doctor, which could explain why his musical output has been more sporadic lately 🙂
Have a go at the test – it’s fun! But you need to be in a quiet environment or use headphones or you’ll never hear some of the nuances.
What did I get? Well, sadly I’m not a world-class musician but I didn’t do too badly:
77.8%… looks like I picked the right career! 🙂
