    Default Hey there

    Hey, long-time lurker here. I don't expect to contribute too often, but I thought I'd go ahead and make an account for when I feel like chipping in.

    A little about myself: I'm currently a composition student at Juilliard in NY, which doesn't mean much other than the fact that I'm really invested in this whole "classical music" thing. It's definitely a love-hate relationship - I highly value some classical music while finding aspects of its culture repellent. But I'm sure I'll get to elaborate more on that in future posts.

    Anyways, a few favorite composers... Schubert, Satie, Ravel, Lachenmann, Ligeti, Grisey, Vivier, Xenakis, Kagel, Cage, Braxton.

    Welcome to Talk Classical cake!

    A bit of background information that may answer questions you may have now or soon...

    As a new member, certain features are disabled (e.g. profile access, blogs, adding attachments, and certain forum areas until you have submitted at least 10 posts to any of the classical music sections of the forum and up to 12 hours have elapsed since post #10, regardless of the total number of posts one has accumulated. Posts made in the Community Forum do not count towards this 10 post requirement goal.

    General information about the do's and don't's can be found here:
    Forum Rules, Guidelines & Terms of Service

    You want to search certain subjects? You wonder how to insert an image? You can't edit or delete posts? Several of such questions are answered here:
    Tips, Tricks and Workarounds

    You may find out, especially during the first weeks, that you make a post and that it does not appear on the site (instead you'll get a message about moderation). This happens because the site's software has flagged your post as potential spam. Most of the time of course, there's nothing wrong with it, and a moderator will approve it. This may take some time, because we have a small team of moderators and cannot provide 24 hours coverage. Some forums and sub-forums will required moderator approval of any new thread for everyone.

    If you have any questions about how things work here, you can always contact one of the moderators.

    Anyway, enjoy the site. it's mostly harmless.

    Welcome. Talking about Braxton would really add value to the forum ….

    Welcome, cake! I hope you find your participation and activity in this forum to be valuable!

    And I, for one, wouldn't mind more discussion of Anthony Braxton!

    Thanks! I haven't had much time to explore the city yet, though last weekend I took the subway to Queens (which was great). Slowly but surely...
