It’s been a while since I caught up on my blog reading, but here are a few links from the last few months that belatedly caught my eye today:
Composer Eduardo Moguillansky has been making the most of his blog to post documentation of his piece 121 for seven players, recently performed in Berlin and Stuttgart by Ensemble Ascolta: here are the programme notes (German), a sound file, a high def video of the Stuttgart performance, a pdf of the score and some background notes and sketches. Riches!
Here’s a long introduction to extended techniques in Dusted Magazine.
Lawrence Dunn has some interesting things to say about Peter Ablinger’s Voices and Piano, on Kairos.
And finally (and this really is digging back through the online dust, back to April last year), Dunn also has an analysis (with lots of score examples) of Grisey’s Quatre chants pour franchir le seuil. Lovely stuff.
