the answer to question three

So the answer to shazamaramack's third meme question regarding "what music do i listen to?" turned into a long rambling entry about my musical philosophy and creative process (sort of), so it felt more appropriate to put it on my domain blog. The entry is entitled a small essay on me and music.

Cool. Speaking of minimalism and John Cage, I did this </a>a few years ago</a>. It was pretty badass, I've not done anything like it before or since.

john cage has had a profound influence on new music today even though he was a little batsnuts. i don't like all of this stuff, but there is quite a few pieces of his i do like. it has minimalistic elements, but he's identified more as an aleotoric composer. (i think i'm spelling that right. :) )

time-stamp music isn't uncommon in some modern music these days, especially if an ensemble has to coordinate with a pre-recorded part. we did fog tropes last year, and that was mostly cued by time stamps, sections at every 30s. i've written one or two pieces like that too.

i would have liked to have seen that performance. sounds like it was a lot of fun. :)
