Re: Taku Sugimoto

I can't seem to find Tori , and, for those who have heard it, is it worth tracking down? I didn't totally love Tori and that is from a stretch of his recorded output that I really enjoy. I found Tori uneven and less exciting some others. I suppose I should revisit it but I thought Italia was much b...

Re: Music books

Having recently bought the Alfred Brendel Schubert DVD set I would like to suggest just buying the CDs and (important for Schubert) decent Urtext scores (Henle is good if you got the scratch but I have the Wiener Urtext which is excellent and much cheaper) as publishers were unkind to Schubert. Many...

Re: i hate headphones

I'd rec the new Shure line. I have the SRH840s which are a good set of closed reference headphones. That's a tad over your budget. But really good bang for buck cans. I dont know if the 440s would do or not. Check over at http://www.head-fi.org for the flavor of the month. Your budget is going to be...

Re: Where to go after Alvin Lucier for 'resonance music'?

No one knew more about how a piano resonates than Feldman. He knew it in his bones. But I am guessing this is not what you are after. But the most obvious answer that comes to mind is: Toshiya Tsunoda. He, like Lucier, has a several pieces that involve the use of small resonant spaces (teapots, bott...

Re: Morton Feldman

Writing about Feldman and his music is difficult. It was even more difficult pre (say) 1988 before the flood of HatArt, New Albion, Mode, Bridge, etc. releases arrived. There was precious little Feldman available on record and the late scores were unreadable and often prohibitively expensive. Outsid...

There aren't many in English as far as I know. There are a couple old books (the old Thomas DeLio book comes to mind), some articles in Perspectives of New Music and a dissertation or two (or 5)… and I think Bunita has been selling her Feldman lectures online but the best i know of are the Stephen J...

Re: homophoni 2011

I also get “The operation couldn't be completed. ( kCFErrorDomainCFNetwork error 303.)” with Safari and no luck with FireFox either....

But Chrome works fine so if anyone is interested in a workaround try Chrome (or Opera).
