Quote from: T. D. on December 21, 2020, 05:44:41 AMThis reminds me...Not new, definitely experimental and improv/free rather than classical, but after Cor Fuhler passed away someone recommended his Stengam for solo (heavily) prepared piano. Title is Magnets spelled backward, which gives an indication. I enjoyed the samples I heard (on US vendor Squidco site), but then forgot. Will have to follow up. This seems to have been released only as a physical CD (Potlatch label in France) and I couldn't find any downloads.

Someone told me that Manoury said that he decided to become a composer after hearing Mantra - that's what made me think of it, Just listening to it now after listening to Mantra, it's almost too similar! Is there a mantra, a melody from which all the rest of the composition was derived? Not sure. Stockhausen could be either flattered or angry! But he'll certainly have a feeling of déjà vu.
Quote from: steve ridgway on December 24, 2020, 04:44:49 AMIs today's Avant Garde such in the sense that it would shock the Stockhausen et al of fifty years ago with its radical innovations, or has the term just become a genre label for the same sort of music?
Quote from: Mandryka on December 24, 2020, 05:17:36 AMIt's just that, as far as I can see, inspired new music for vanilla modern piano is quite hard to come by - as is inspired new songs for voice and piano. It's as if the piano is the killer.
Quote from: steve ridgway on December 24, 2020, 05:34:26 AMI'd think it's very hard to come up with new ideas for vanilla modern piano with its fixed notes. As compared say with all the sounds Ligeti could get out of an organ. I wonder if anyone tried multiple pianos tuned slightly differently so they'd give microtones or beat interference?
Quote from: Leo K. on December 24, 2020, 08:04:54 AMI've been thinking about Morton Feldman, his "For Bunita Marcus" for piano - I haven't hear the whole work but seems beautiful and epic.
