The Roger Reynolds Reader
« on: September 28, 2011, 07:20:53 PM »
Roger Reynolds inhabits the same universe as Xenakis and Aperghis/Mache and IRCAM. All I can offer you at the moment is the 2cd set by the Ardittis, certainly one of their high watermarks, which highlights an SQ with Electronics named Ariadne's Web.

Again, it is late, and I'm retiring. Hopefully when I return, this Thread will have been saved from certain doom!

Re: The Roger Reynolds Reader, his CV

Ok, looked him up in The New Grove:


(b Detroit, 18 July 1934). American composer. A student of science and music at the University of Michigan, he studied composition with Finney and Gerhard (BM 1960, MM 1961). He was a co-founder (with Ashley and Mumma) of the ONCE group in Ann Arbor, and was active in the organization of the first three festivals (1961–3). After living in Europe (1962–6) he accepted a fellowship from the Institute of Current World Affairs which took him to Japan for the next three years . . . In its sweep and ambition Reynolds's music represents a continuation of the idealism and imaginative vitality of the 1960s carried forward to the present day. While planned, complex and demanding, its real accomplishment lies in its mode of addressing the connections that exist between works, people, things and ideas through a sonic art that is both generously scaled and infinitely nuanced.
