I've been listening to [relatively] a lot of La Monte Young lately, and [slightly less] Tony Conrad--which is harder to work to. And the Cage, of course, because he's the composer this month in the kids' school [!]. So it's all so much that when the radiator kicked in the other day, the kid asked if that was my music.
But is there any other group who's not so on board with the all-sound-is-music concept than classical orchestra musicians? Perhaps not. Which is a bummer.
Though I doubt a Cageian centennial revolution is the justification for the budget cuts to Southwest German Radio orchestras that have spawned several protests at the Donaueschinger Musiktage new music festival.
