Putting Ideas Together I

Ed. Note: Sometimes you just want to put up a blog post so you can get back to writing. This is one of those days.

Brian Eno's Music for Airports

"I have found that Schoenbergian systems, in combination with predominant methods enable me to tonally sense brand-new possibilities in a highly musical and extremely progressive way. As a primarily ambiguous artist, I aim to develop the linearity within non-linear-illusions, and bring forth a single cluster that really senses the most poly-timbral issues. It is always crucial to interpret a sense of 'awarenesses of phrase', never more so than today. 

"My distorted collaborations have led me to explore the multimedia potential of approaches and continuities, and abandon the creation of situations in which the visualising of a tone-row has the potential to transpose all sorts of flowing passage-studies. When planning my flowing visions, I often find that contextualizing a somewhat conceptual array of musical polyphonies helps a great deal. My work is, in short, a re-imagining of the 'Romantic-silences' school of contemporary 'aesthetic-chord-structure' composition."

Critical Thinking in the Cheap Seats

Since 2007, Superconductor has grown from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around NYC, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate NY. I am a freelance writer living and working in Brooklyn NY. And no, I'm not a conductor.
