Entropic Front is a one-person instrumental electronic music project by Patrick L. Cheatham.
Entropic Front music fits New Age Instrumental Electronica ethereal styles, but with more intensity such as in Techno or EDM music, and with more demanding song evolution. Mixing typically incongruent musical moods is common in Entropic Front music. Bright and light melodies alternate or blend with dark passages, exploring new musical moods. Percussion intensity, and sudden edges to starts and stops of sound fragments, bring late twentieth century synthesizer Ambient, Techno, New Age, and Chill styles into combination with a stormier hardcore sound and pace.
Entropic Front is named in honor of a natural philosophy appreciative of imperfection. Flaws from absolutely impossible perfection abound and lend character to everything. Our flaws and the flaws in life are that of which we are made and are the heart of our warm and flexible humanity. Nature's deviation from idealized cloned perfection provides uniqueness, freedom, and beauty to all. Often looked over yielding, fluidity, and slip are imbued in the actual sciences and in our beautiful human imperfection.
Patrick adopts an experimental approach to making music, with the idea of allowing the music to somewhat compose itself. He invests in unexpected or accidental occurrences of synergy between software instrument parts that show fair to strong potential. This is all accomplished via computer software. Foundations of songs are grown this way, after flexibly and unconcernedly composing synthesizer software instrument note pattern fragments, reorienting them often.
The artistic goal is for each song to finalize as merely congruent and whole, being steadfast in not growing progressively more unsatisfying upon repeated listens over weeks and years. Listeners are pleased by variety, surprise, and free maneuver in music.
