Brain Canker Music can be described as not dissonant enough to drive you away straight away, just annoying enough to be constantly irritating. Art Tatumish in that it forgets what it was going to say and begins to wander all over--but without the style or virtuosity of Art Tatum. Like people who talk with long pauses between words so that you never know for sure if they're done talking. You could write Brain Canker Music or play standards in the Brain Canker style. See?
