    Martin Arnold: Slew & Hop (2001) for viola and cello, Quatuor Bozzini


    The composer's comments are interesting. He cares about melody but he is not concerned with themes, subjects, motifs or narrative. He cares about continuation but not progression. He is influenced by folk musics, ars subtilior, and consort music. The music on this album (Aberrare) reminded me of John Cage (around 1948~1950) and Walter Zimmermann.

    David Albulescu - Howl for Violin, Cello and Piano (2020)

    Trio Mosa
    Alexandra Van Beveren, violin
    Paul Stavridis, 'cello
    Bram de Vree, piano

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I am not convinced this piece is successful, but I do think the composer had an interesting concept (which is why I posted it). Maybe some revision might improve this work - or I'm off the mark entirely.

    I really liked this - will look for more of Martin Arnold's work.

    Hunter Coblentz: Quiet Music, Music for Piano (2016)


    The composer talks about the piece, and the music starts at 0:50.

    "... musical expression that is devoid of superfluous gesture, narrative, and virtuosity, something calmed in its dramatic impulse, something reticent, and introspective, something quiet ..."

    If no ones mentioned this from Nadarejshvili it's a really enjoyable quartet (1987) .

    Facebook videos are not really wanted here. I am not accusing you of anything but FB is rife with scams associated with links. And this is your first post.

    Just sayin'

    That was pretty interesting, love it! I like that instrumentation choice and timbral combination, as well as the extended techniques like the creaks, overblowing, overall exotic timbres. Some of the harp flourishes seemed a bit out of place to me though.

    It's primal atmosphere reminds me a lot of Crumb's Voices for Ancient Children, especially with the grunts and vocal utterances. Crumb was fascinated by the idea of pre-historic music and envisioning what it may have sounded like, like you hear in Ancient Voices or the "Sound of Bones and Flutes" movement from Black Angels.

    Overall it sounds like a blend of that primal feeling with harsh industrial noise to create a really interesting effect.

    Joshua Clausen — Broken loops



    ...for piano and electronics - this work resides somewhere between minimalism, jazz, and classical. I found it very interesting and enjoyable.

    Described by Public Radio International as “powerful” and “poignant,” Joshua Clausen’s works frequently fuse strong rhythmic textures and intricate patterning with narratives from history, mass culture and current events.

    Clausen is a 2018-2019 McKnight Composer Fellow, currently collaborating with chamber ensembles 10th Wave (Minneapolis), and HUB New Music (Boston), presenting at Ensemble Mise-En (New York City), and developing a new work for soprano Carrie Henneman Shaw (Chicago/Twin Cities). Other recent projects include a large ceramics/sound installation with the artist Anna Metcalfe, and an immersive 50-channel modular sound installation. (composer website)

    Richard Barrett’s close up

    https://livestream.com/uol/events/80...deos/171315780

    Barrett said he was influenced here by Andy Goldsworthy’s film Rivers and Tides, in particular from the idea of passing through a forest or garden, or some other richly biodiverse environment, and in doing so viewing it from many perspectives, from the smallest details to the whole.
