week 42

It’s March. Beware the Ides of March!

– I posted a whole lot of music. There’s the short, quasi-trap EP, there’s my friend Heather singing two voice + string quartet things I did, and there’s the halfway point of my mix series.

– I saw the McGill Orchestra do a really quite rad program: Vivier’s Orion, a new piece by a doctoral student composer, Reiko Yamada, Bartok’s Miraculous Mandarin, and a mindboggling percussion concerto by Jennifer Higdon. Great work all ’round.

– I found Daphne Oram’s book, An Individual Note, at aMcGill library give-away. It is filled with the best possible kind of British 1970s madness about electronics, acoustics, philosophy, biology, and music. Highly recommend.

– Did you ever wonder what 100 copies of The White Album would sound like all at once? Well, we’ve solved that problem.
