Via Alex Ross:
Today (Tuesday, August 20th), No Age releases their fourth LP An Object, via Sub Pop. Check out the artsy video for album track “An Impression” below.
Last week, songstress Jolie Holland shared a mixtape via Q2. The theme of the mix – “The Sound of the Road” – encompasses a wide range of music; some of the selections may surprise those familiar with Holland’s work. The lead off track is by Morton Feldman; there are also selections by Harry Partch, Gorecki, and more.
Welcome to the new home for my blog, File Under ?.
I have been writing about new music, especially the not-so-easily categorized sort, using this blog handle since 2002.
With Sequenza 21 moving to a new single page model shortly, I decided to bring the blog onto my personal website.
Information about my work as a composer may be found on this site too; there are separate pages with a works list, performance calendar, and a page where you can purchase scores.
My blog posts and links to my writings for other publications may be found here. For “quickie” posts, usually sample audio and video streams pertaining to stuff about which I’m writing, check out File Under’s Tumblr page. Audio samples of my music may be heard on my Soundcloud page.
I look forward to interacting with readers via WordPress!
