Nashville’s DIY Electronic and Experimental Scene

That ingrained musical DNA allows Nashville’s experimental artists to excel. Take R. Stevie Moore, the godfather of home recording—Moore’s father, Bob Loyce Moore, was a studio musician and member of the Nashville A-Team. Though Moore has been actively making music since the ’60s, these days, the 66-year-old spends more time maintaining his impressive back catalog, while also dealing with his declining health. But as he’s gotten older, his musical interests have changed. In his home outside Nashville, Moore explains, “All I’m really into anymore is noise, industrial, lo-fi stuff. Merzbow—I didn’t really care much for it back in the day, but I’ve got tapes from the early ‘70s just like that. Feedback and loops.”
