Quote from: Mandryka on December 21, 2020, 08:16:08 AMStockhausen's Mantra is just a set of variations on a melody (the mantra.) It is for two pianos, the piano tones are passed through a ring modulator which serves to bring out some of their overtones, creating a more varied timbre. There is also some occasional use of little cymbals, and woodblocks which mark the main structural junction - all done by the piano players. And occasionally the musicians have to make a sound with their vocal chords. I love it, I think it is a masterpiece. But it's not really avant garde any more - it's half a century old! Roll over Stockhoven.
Quote from: Archaic Torso of Apollo on February 12, 2021, 01:19:07 PMGlad to see a mention of Mantra. I find it a lot more comprehensible than other Stockhausen I've listened to. Almost catchy, a bit jazzy. I've got the Naxos recording and I'm listening to it right now!That's a hell of a picture. Is that supposed to be Enno Poppe?

Quote from: Mandryka on February 14, 2021, 04:02:37 AMThis expensive, hard to find CD from a relatively unknown composer and a relatively unknown jazz piano player is well worth the pain of purchasing it for the sound. The piano is like, really here! Both in terms of music and playing it's the most enjoyable for me by far of any piano cd of Fox's music. Christopher Fox is a musician with a cult following. There's even a festschrift for him. It is true that his minimal, restrained music though initially underwhelming has really gotten under my skin. One of the long pieces on this CD, The Calm of the Mountains, is the closest thing I've heard to music directly influenced by The Well Tuned Piano - it's only 14 minutes though! So that must show something - not sure what it shows, but it shows something.

Relatively unknown jazz pianist?He's recorded with the relatively well-known (NL modern classical) Ives ensemble, I have his For John Cage recording.Stuff on discogs looks "classical" to me: https://www.discogs.com/artist/847140-John-SnijdersAnd USA dealer Squidco offers the physical CD (I think ezz-thetics is the successor label to Hatology) on discogs at their standard price, US$ 17.95 not really expensive for such things.
