- This week on SoundNotion, we talk open data sets (that’s hot).
- The Met offered its data and composer Suby Raman accepted the challenge with ten graphs that show what’s been up at the opera for the last 100 years.
- Suby also parses gender balance in top US orchestras. Women are suppressing the advancement of men in orchestral harp playing FYI.
- With the recent labor disputes among US orchestras, it should come as little surprise that those orchestras are shrinking.
- Bob Shingleton at the Overgrown Path blog has some thoughts on increased vinyl sales and what it may mean for classical music. We think he’s missing the mark a bit.
This week on SoundNotion, we ponder questions for the ages. What does it mean to be a music entrepreneur (or is there such a thing)? What do you say when people ask you what kind of music you compose? Have a question about music that you’re afraid to ask?
- This week on SoundNotion, we ponder questions for the ages. What is a music entrepreneur (ICE CEO and artistic director Claire Chase should know)? Is there such a thing (R. Andrew Lee says no. Alex Shapiro says yes.)? Has it always been a thing and now we’re just giving it a name (Dave says yes)? Want to hear more from Andrew or Alex. They’ve both been on the show.
- And speaking of giving something a name, Dean C. Minderman at NewMusicBox wants to know what you tell someone who asks what kind of music you perform or composer? Hmmm… new, modern, concert, art, experimental, new classical, post classical, alt classical, indie classical, contemporary classical, avant garde, serious music…
- Ellen McSweeney wants to know, ever have a question about music that you were afraid to ask? Her NewMusicBox series Matters of the Art is for you.
- On SoundNotion 152, we featured all four finalists the the 2014 American Composers Forum National Composition Contest. The votes are in and Todd Lerew wins with his work for So Percussion flagging entrainment of ultradian rhythms and the consequences thereof.
- Chicago based music critic Lawrence A. Johnson wants to hear more American music being performed, so he decided to do something about it. The American Music Project will support this goal with commissions and grants for performances.
- The music world bids farewell to Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe (1929-2014).
This week, the panel comments on the Met crisis, classical music elitism, and “successful” music.
- The Metropolitan Opera averts a lockout at the eleventh hour. Now the administration and the unions have a week to work things out as they await an independent analysis.
- Universal Chairman and CEO Max Hole calls classical music “elitist” and “unwelcoming.”
- Matthew Guerrieri dissects the idea of successful music in a recent post on NewMusicBox.
