Advanced is in the ear of the behearer. I'm a professional musician with an
education in music theory, etc., but since I have gotten more and more involved
with writing techno, drum'n'bass, and other music on the computer, I've lost
interest in harmony and melody and spend most of my time creating new sounds
instead. It's a more fundamental form of composition, if you think about it. So
perhaps you're looking in the wrong place for the complexity of this new music...
