A former teacher at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark, Goodiepal left his position when they refused to support his radical ideas about modern music. He declared war on the Academy and the stupidity of modern media art in general by opening his own free alternative school, first in London and more recently out of a castle in Norway.

The term Radical Computer Music was coined by Goodiepal in relation to his Mort Aux Vaches Ekstra Extra compositional game scenario. It promotes an expanded dialogue between human beings and artificial and alternative intelligences as a way to transgress a condition of stagnation which, according to Goodiepal, is prevailing in contemporary computer music and media art. The game scenario is an exercise in the creation of musical scores to challenge the mindset of “other” intelligences, considering issues such as utopia, time, notation techniques, language, levels of unscannability, and the role of the composer.
