Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

So Percussion Speaks



Jeannie Hopper's 2008 interview with So Percussion--a group defined more by their amalgamation of as many dualities, once-presumed to be mutually exclusive, as possible--during their appearance at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (now MoMA PS1) as part of the summer Warm Up music series.

Experimental Composers

RADIO SERIES

The object of this series is to invite emerging and established innovators to share their work. These programs are usually a combination of an interview with a far-reaching perspective on the artist's career, some recordings illustrating this history, and something new. Open territory. The unfortunate and unintended messages that come attached to a title like Experimental Composers are many. Still it is one of the few labels to come out of the world of music that has not been co-opted by promoters, corporations, journalists, or lawyers. This one just seems to have anti-market goo on it. Hooray. It's also just bad English (as if to imply that these poor souls are themselves, in their flesh and blood, some kind of experiment and, perhaps, even expendable). And then there is the spectre of defying the wisdom of the great Edgar Varèse who said something like, "I do not write experimental music. My experimenting is done before I make the music. Afterwards it is the listener who must experiment."
