And Torut, dear patient Torut. My life has been nothing but unremitting turmoil for the last couple of years. No sympathy, though. It was all my choice, and I'm happy with my decisions. But things have been tumultuous enough that posting to Asymmetry has been the last thing on my mind.

santantonio's blog is so sweet, too, there's even less incentive for me. Be fair, when I was the only game in town, there was very little incentive. And now?

No problem. I appreciate posts of new music by you, sanantonio, North Star and others, and I'm still not able to catch up.

Scott Miller : high adventure avant garde music of the best sort



SCOTT MILLER and ZEITGEIST celebrate the first decade of their work together with the release of Tipping Point, a CD featuring Miller's works for instrument and electronics alongside his only strictly acoustic work written in the 21st century.

Known for his interactive electroacoustic chamber music and experimental performance pieces, Miller has twice been named a McKnight Composer Fellow, he is a Fulbright Scholar, and his work has been recognized by numerous international arts organizations.

Fabulous new discovery for me here. Does anyone know anything about Denis Smalley? Is this an outlier or has he written other music like this?

Not much, but I've had this disc for ages and it's a blast:

(I may be showing a preference for his analogue music)

Nono's A Floresta è jovem e cheja de vida, for tape, soprano, clarinet and metal plates, is a beautiful and devastating comment on the Vietnam War. Unfortunately, the DG recording has never been issued on CD. The Mode recording just doesn't have quite the impact, although it's still worth hearing. His Un Volto del Mare is an intense, lyrical blending of electronic sounds and female vocals, which, again, has not emerged on CD as far as I know.


Interesting to see this comment, just because I’ve listened quite recently to both the DG and the Mode versions of Nono's A Floresta è jovem e cheja de vida and I prefer the mode, which seems somehow more refined, more interior and of course, better recorded. It is an excellent piece of music IMO.

He's great. Probably New Zealand's best composer. I like everything I've heard from him, which has unfortunately been very little; the standout work is Tides, I think.

Something totally magical happens about three and a half minutes before the end of Pentes.

The big problem I have with his music, or a lot of it, is that it isn't contrapuntal -- it's a collage of sound moments.  That means I have to adjust my expectations a bit, I am used to polyphony/heterophony.

The image is bad, Françoise Barrière’s Scènes des Voyages d’Ulysse.

Absolutely bloody amazing recording this, Françoise Barrière is just incredibly talented at making collages, it has all the spirituality of Stockhausen’s Hymnen III - and French sensuality and finesse.

I don't know if I've posted this before, but this is an excellent source for electro acoustic music: electrocd

Hundreds of CDs and downloads available - and biographies for many composers.
