Definitely the cheapest paperback copy today:
— Products shown: The music of the Temporalists.
A new book on rhythm, written by jazz guitarist Rory Stuart!
"For listeners in Rhetorical times, to have heard a piece of music a second time was probably like seeing a play o...r reading a book a second time is to us now. It is something one does only occasionally with with very special works or difficult ones."
"Imagine what would happen to a good book if we read it twice a year for five years, and if we heard recordings of it in elevators; that is what we are doing to the Four Seasons."
"In Rhetorical times, being dead was a definite disadvantage to a composer. After 1800, however, it was almost required in order to achieve greatness. The new Canon included more and more music by dead composers, and as a consequence, the 'conductor' appeared. Conductors acted as the dead composer's surrogate."
We are pleased to announce that Music Theory Online 23.4 is now available.
A new publication arrived! 'Experimental Encounters in Music and Beyond' (Kathleen Coessens, ed.) is now available via Leuven University Press
