  • On An Overgrown Path: Classical music and the mass market fallacy
    on Facebook and Twitter Dawn of Midi s CD First was supplied as a requested sample after a heads up from a reader Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Thursday November 11 2010 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels aakaash israni amino belyamani BBC Radio 3 classic fm classical music dawn of midi Jazz qasim naqvi rajar 3 comments Joe Shelby said By mentioning jazz and improvisational world music you ve definitely invited an apples to oranges comparison What makes the other worlds of music different from classical is the that in the other worlds and this includes rock and pop the recording comes first Robert Fripp has even expressed this in discussing recent King Crimson releases the CD is the score which is then performed live In order to compete in this market the contemporary composer and the label itself needs to stop thinking about the score and prioritize getting premiere recordings out the door Nobody talks about a score because nobody can read a score except those few whose training it is to bring that score into life through performance The layman world can t discuss debate and enjoy orchestral music so long as it only exists on paper The rest of the music world works by 1 artist writes the material 2 artist records the material 3 artist releases the recording for feedback 4 artist performs the material The classical especially orchestral world has this backwards the performances come first and then nothing it may take years after a premiere for a work to finally be released by which time it is forgotten or there s really no momentum to promote it by the artists involved except maybe the conductor maybe because they ve gone on to different things It is too late to ride that momentum that the rest of the industry rides when that CD is able to get in the hands of the public So THAT is to my mind what needs to change to rebuild a market for contemporary classical getting the music released as music that people can listen to and enjoy and build up a buzz about and not just as a piece of paper nobody can read and a rare concert in some obscure town nobody can get to 4 07 pm Pliable said Comment received via Facebook Great just downloaded it from iTunes I never heard of the group or engineer I thought it was an electronic cd Dawn of Midi Yes brilliant sound and playing http www louthcms org 5 40 pm Guy said Hi Joe Your argument is excellent except for one thing even finding a score of a new composition can be very difficult If a young composer writes an orchestral work his publisher may not even commit to print a study score of it I suspect classical music now works more like the Robert Fripp

  • On An Overgrown Path: Colonial attitudes within Western music
    triptych and Blue Frog is the production partner in Mumbai Titi Robin s blog provides a lot more information and videos it is best read by starting from the bottom and reading up It is interesting how these paths keep crossing Three Rivers has echoes of the 1972 journey that took Peter Brook and a troupe of actors to perform in African villages In that opening quote Titi Robin said I feel the need to do this in order to preserve the coherence and balance of my own journey as an artist and as a human being Elsewhere in his blog he talks about listening to the song of a Kalo gypsy from the south of France from the San Jaume area of Perpignan Just a couple of months back I was in that wonderful city of Perpignan It is where Pablo Casals made many of his legendary recordings and last week I quoted the great Catalan musician as saying A musician is also a man Classical music can certainly learn a lot from both Pablo Casals and Titi Robin about the importance of maintaining the balance between artist and human being Also on Facebook and Twitter Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Friday November 12 2010 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels classical music Jazz Pablo Casals perpignan titi robin world music 2 comments Halldor said Very interesting quote there however I suspect that the crrative traffic is rather more than just one way though not perhaps the flow of knowledge about its creative outcome I can only give one example from my own experience but the great Sri Lankan composer the late Master Premasiri Khemasdasa with whom I was privileged to work in the mid 90s was a striking example of a musician from a South Asian tradition who travelled to the west particularly East Germany and Czechoslovakia and used his musical experiences there to rejuvenate traditional Sinhala music theatre integrating western instruments and performance techniques and referencing Bach Brahms Weill and Eisler Khemadasa s stage works played to large audiences across rural and urban Sri Lanka maybe not the elaborate economic model of the Western musuic industry but within Sri Lanka financially successful and widely heard by a mass audience nonetheless Basic Wikipedia biog here http bit ly d75Mbq I m certain that there must be many comparable examples in non western cultures about which we in the west are either unaware or I suspect more likely closing our ears to western influences on musical cultures that we prefer to hear as pure or other itself a colonial mindset We can t simply cast musical cultures as exploiter and exploited The reality is more complex

  • On An Overgrown Path: Songs of innocence and experience
    how can the past links between Le Barroux and Archbishop Lefebvre be explained The response was that the monastery was allied religously but not politically with Lefebvre Doubtless there are many who will accept this explanation But there are also others who will think of the many instances including the Crusades the Inquisition the Albigensian Crusade and the Spanish Civil War where religion and politics have been inextricably linked And like me they will find the explanation that religion and politics can be totally separated both disingenuousness and naive This article in not an attempt to poop on Decca s Christmas party I have said before and will say again I hope lots of people buy the nun s CD But we live in an information age and I believe the control of information by parties with vested interests has to be countered Paul Touvier was convicted in 1994 of involvement in crimes against humanity including the killing of seven Jewish hostages at Rillieux la Pape during the Second World War He had close links with the traditionalist Archbishop Lefebvre who in turn had links with the monastery at Le Barroux And although the community at Le Barroux severed their links with Lefebvre in 1988 the nuns and monks there remain staunchly traditionalist Catholic with the associated baggage Unsurprisingly none of this is mentioned on the nun s Facebook page or in other Decca promotional material So part of the backstory of a high profile classical album is not available elsewhere Which is why last week I asked the monks at Le Barroux an awkward question and then wrote this post Also on Facebook and Twitter All the photos of l Abbaye de l Annonciation are c On An Overgrown Path 2010 My trip to Le Barroux was self funded and I stayed in the monastery guesthouse at Le Barroux Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Tuesday November 30 2010 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels avignon catholic church decca france gregorian chant jean marie le pen L Abbaye Notre Dame de l Annonciation L Abbaye Sainte Madeleine du Barroux Monsignor Marcel Lefebvre paul touvier 2 comments P M Doolan said Wow I m impressed I ve published a number of small article on aspects of the holocaust especially in Holland thanks for bringing me up to scrtach on this one The links between the Catholic Church and Vichey France Franco s Spain etc is very grim You are perfectly right for trying to bring this to the public s attention I m listening 6 43 pm Joe said Pliable Kudos for your investigations and reports on the monks at Le Barroux and the nuns at L Annonciation I think you do a good job of bringing out the complexities in the identity of this community in a fair minded and honest way noting the good that they do while

  • On An Overgrown Path: Classical music and dumbed down ears
    video images But the sound oh dear the sound The recorded music for the production was played through two large and battered PA speakers either side of the stage and lacked fidelity slam dynamics and practically everything else But the capacity audience which was almost all youngsters with parents loved it Audiophile company Quad Electroacoustics long standing strapline The closest approach to the original sound positions the concert hall as the sonic reference point So does music education for the iPod generation mean exposing young ears to the original sound Or should we be accepting that for young people reproduced rather than live music is the original sound Is it the classical music community that now has the prejudiced ears Can we learn from Alan Watts writing about John Cage What may not be generally understood about John Cage is that he is an extremely accomplished musician who has however realized that we do not know how to listen Conventional music as well as conventional speech have given us prejudiced ears so that we treat all utterances which do not follow their rules as static or insignificant noise There was a time when painters and people in general saw landscape as visual static mere background John is calling our attention to sonic landscape or soundscape which simultaneously involves a project for cleaning the ears of the musically educated public Header image is Illusion s 1974 album Isotope with artwork by Gull Graphics inhouse designer John Pasche Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Also on Facebook and Twitter Posted by Pliable at Sunday November 28 2010 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels alan watts avignon john cage Josh McNeill will robin No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March 3 February 21 January 16 2014 211 December 13 November 23 October 13 September 19 August 17 July 10 June 21 May 27 April 15 March 2 February 23 January 28 2013 257 December 21 November 17 October 31 September 8 August 35 July 24 June 24 May 8 April 31 March 8 February 24 January 26 2012 276 December 22 November 25 October 23 September 12 August 20 July 27 June 27 May 7 April 32 March 27 February 24 January 30 2011 299 December 22 November 21 October 42 September 12 August 24 July 38 June 29 May 5 April 34 March 9 February 33 January 30 2010 281 December 37 November 20 Songs of innocence and
