Speaker Music:  of desire, longing


Thank you.

ETA: "of desire, longing sees the artist drawing on French philospher Henri Lefebvre’s book Rhythmanalysis and British cultural theorist Kodwo Eshun’s theory of the ‘choronopolitical’ to create a longform sound piece that records a romantic approach to “gestural sonic portraitures of sonorous and cybernetic ensemble energy music.”

Of course, of course.

Dave Davies:  Hidden Treasures (It seems to me that this stuff worked best as changes-of-pace on Kinks albums.  By themselves all together, not surrounded by songs by brother Ray, these tracks in the aggregate seem monocolored and unsatisfying.  Kind of like a compilation of all the George songs from Beatles albums.)

Rawsthorne:  Symphonies Nos. 1, 2 "A Pastoral Symphony" & 3 (Ellett//Lloyd-Jones/Bournemouth Symphony)

Copland:  Symphony No. 3 (Tilson Thomas/San Francisco Symphony)

Scelsi:  Yamaon/Anahit/I Presagi/Tre Pezzi/Okanagon (Zender/Klangforum Wien)

Strauss:  Don Juan/Metamorphosen für 23 Solostreicher//Hindemith:  Symphonische Variationen über Themen von Carl Maria von Webern (Furtwängler/Berliner Philharmoniker) (there's certainly something gripping about hearing Strauss's Metamorphosen, a work explicitly about the destruction of German culture by its own hand, in the shadow of the destruction of German culture by its own hand, played by the most celebrated exponents of that culture)

Bach:  Double Violin Concerto//Anna Clyne:  Prince of Clouds//Philip Glass:  Echorus//David Ludwig:  Seasons Lost (Koh/Laredo//Parameswaran/Curtis 20/20 Ensemble) (great great great)

Dallapiccola:  Il Prigioniero (Bryn-Julson/Hynninen/Haskin/Alexandersson/Wedin/Haskin//Salonen/Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra & Choir/Eric Ericson Choir)

Various:  1978:  The Year the UK Turned Day-Glo (I thought at the time, and continue to think, that 1978's consolidations of advances made in 1977 made 1978 a particularly fertile year for alt-pop music)

Sunflower Bean:  From the Basement

Sunflower Bean:  King of the Dudes

Sunflower Bean:  "Moment in the Sun"

Bach:  Orchestral Suite No. 3//Handel:  Concerti Grossi Op. 6 Nos. 5 & 10//Gluck:  Alceste Overture (Furtwängler/Berliner Philharmoniker) (I love the Prelude to Act 1 of Lohengrin and I love Bach, so I guess I should love it when Bach is played to sound like the Prelude to Act 1 of Lohengrin) (the Handel I'm not so sure about)

Grieg:  Symphonic Dances/Peer Gynt Suites Nos. 1 & 2/Funeral March in Memory of Rikard Nordraak/Two Elegiac Melodies/Suite from Holberg's Time/Two Melodies/Two Nordic Melodies/In Autumn/Lyric Suite/Klokkenklang (Aadland/WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln) (not so much couldn't be better as wouldn't be better) (by which I mean the Berlin Phil plays this music with more finesse, but not as much understanding and earthy vitality)

Matthew Evan Taylor:  The Unheard Mixtape 2:  Language of the Unheard

Ingrid Laubrock Anti-House:  Roulette of the Cradle

Lieberson:  King Gesar (Ebrahim//Lieberson/Ma/Ax/Serkin/Adorkián/Marshall/Purvis/Taylor)
