One of the major distinguishing features of avant-garde music was and still is in its approach to creativity. As John Cage had earlier shown, a fresh perspective could result in the making of completely new sounds that would be impossible through strict classical composition. No other Irish rock musician comes as near to Cage's improvisatory dictum as does Stano. A self-confessed 'non-musician', Stano has completely shunned historical achievements in any musical form, opting instead for a naive working method that formulates sound out of an organic framework. Most people if they were to attempt something like this would end up with a selection of indiscriminate noise works of unbearably low quality, but Stano's intuitive grasp of sonic architecture has resulted in possibly the most individuai hybrid of rock, experimental and electronic music ever to come out of Ireland.
