Earle Brown Interview

https://music.ucsc.edu/sites/default/files/EarleBrown.pdf

A very interesting interview with this relatively unknown American composer, who deciphers the strategies and behaviors of the famous serialists and atonalists of the fifties and sixties.
Where we discover that behind the great phrases of self-proclaimed musical geniuses always hide grudges, revenge and schemes… as in any human activity!

Max Richter “Sleep”

In the continuity of Brian Eno’s ambient music, the complete video of “Sleep” by Max Richter.

A real challenge, with a duration that rivals the first monumental works of Philip Glass: eight hours!

It’s a great exercise in non-teleological music, and it works really well.

Settle down in your armchair, and good night ! 🙂
