    From my expertize in ''Brutal skrunk'' sludge purist, I would say Dissecting Table more starling, pitch dark & brutal in their artform. Eminent some of genre, would agree perhaps, than there is early Zeni Geva before maximum money monster era cassettes release, I have them digital now, and ''how...

    As you may know, I am currently suffering an incurable Bruckneritis with all the recordings I can find, so I rate all of them and make my top rank. Yesterday, for an hour of leisure before dinner, I watched this whole rehearsal of Celibidache conducting Symphony No.9. It is fortunately in...

    The recent discussions about modern art have prompted me to search the web for examples, many of which I have found compelling to say the least. Feel free to post your latest modern art discoveries.

    Just curious to hear TC member's thoughts on Modern/ Contemporary art, and art in general. It's history, the catalysts that influenced it's evolution, the psychological aspects... the meaning of 'art', what is art and what is not - all that good stuff. Pertaining to Modern art in particular...
  9. Classical Music Discussion
    This goes back to the "Classical music is so gay" thread. I think that there is a common perception that not only CM, but most High Art is effeminate or elitist. And I think many Americans have no idea how often they are exposed to art, nor, in some cases, how fortunate they are. Yes, the...

    Clickbait title, don't worry. While I no longer run into people who have that sentiment, since the only people who say Classical is gay are high school boys, it's something I've noticed to be a general reception to classical, and the arts in general. This might just be an American thing, but...

    No, not ArtMusic. This is from a quote by Jon Vickers, who left us a couple of days ago. "Art is a wrestling with the meaning of life. Since society no longer resists 'the pull of success,' it can no longer define or draw a line between what's art and what's entertainment.'' Posted elsewhere...

    Have you seen this!? I've never experienced anything like it: a cello concerto that is simultaneously performance art. This piece deservedly won the prestigious Grawemeyer music composition award. Let's discuss!

    Hey guys, So I've been planning my senior recital (undergrad - baritone) and finding music has been a bit of a challenge. I've looked at hundreds of art songs (German, Italian, French, English), as well as many arias and now my voice teacher suggests looking at more contemporary stuff. Do you...

    Anyone into so-called "chamber prog" like Univers Zero and Art Zoyd?
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    Is there, as some people suggest, something different about music from its sister arts? Why does it often seem to affect people more immediately and more powerful than other forms of art - or does it? How did humans acquire the ability to appreciate music?
  18. Classical Music Discussion
    Sigh. No, those are not my words. My uncle said it this past Sunday. Background, I'm a jazz guitarist and contemporary classical composer. My uncle has been a long time tenured math professor at a Cal state university. He teaches advanced math to graduate students. He is far more...
  19. Music Theory
    I am working on a novel where each of the chapters are inspired by unfinished works of art. This 'inspirational' work influences both the theme and the form of the chapters in question. I am currently working on a chapter inspired by The Art of the Fugue and what I would like to do is translate...
