Wow. I'd love to see what they come up with. I'm submitting something I've done -- it's just a matter of choosing a song now. Thanks for this link.

Nice, I've uploaded a song too. It's kind of cool to see a list of "all" electro/acoustic genres together. New age alongside Turntable, for instance. The first is regarded as kind of geeky and pathetic, and the second is the latest fad. One noticable ommission is "dub" though - maybe that's counted under "tape music"?

I doubt this is a definitive list by anyone's standards but it is an interesting list. What is missing besides dub?

"Drone" maybe? Although once again, that might be integrated within, say, "Sinewave", "Ambient" or "Granular".

drill n bass isn't there.... nor glitch hop,....

thanks for the link... I uploaded one from my band Ice Cream Creatures, which we describe as ambient-electronic-glitchy-guitar ballads, or beach boys vs. Aphex Twin, or something...
Hear it here, at metafilter music.

sounds like some great courses there, too... I wish I could have taken something like that.

Some of those are just made up, surely? Or perhaps I don't know what I'm listening to.
