Hello New Music fans! Paul and I have a new episode of Words On New Music. This one grew from a test conversation of Google Voice we did looking for an option to replace Skype. We both had recent live music experiences and spoke about Paul’s hearing of the contemporary chamber ensemble, Southland Ensemble and mine, going to a show of a violin teacher of mine, Tom Swafford who led an evening of solo and duo performances at the Brooklyn IBEAM. We discussed the new music CD release by Dr. Peter Thoegersen, a polytempic and polymicrotonal composer, Three Pieces in Polytempic Polymicrotonality and each spoke about our own compositional process and work in electronic and electro-acoustic music.
