The Apple WWDC is on, Theremini hits the shelves, Pauline Oliveros’ Reverberations has a kickstarter, and composer, performer and educator Kirsten Volness joins us this month to discuss her pieces Precious Nothing and River Rising, and much more!
- THE THEREMINI IS FINALLY OUT!!! Ben has received his, and loves it. But he might have to reduce his caffeine consumption to properly play it…
- The Apple Worldwide Developer Conference is on!
- Apple preps the release of OSX 10.10 “Yosemite” and furthers the OSX iOS hybrid.
- iOS 8 is announced, steals the best of Android (other keyboards/widgets) and lets iOS apps talk/interact with each other.
- Apple buys Beats. Mostly for the streaming service, but also to sell overpriced headphones to teenagers.
- Important records is kickstarting a re-release of electroacoustic pioneer Pauline Oliveros‘ hugely influential “Reverberations” 12-disc set.
- Kirstin Volness joins us this week:
- Her Precious Nothing, perf. Hotel Elefant, is an amplified, audio affected, sometimes pop-musicy electro-acoustic 25 minute journey.
- River Rising for violin, stereo digital sound, and live electronics will sweep you away. :)
- She also tells us about her work with the Boston New Music Initiative, the Meridian Project, in education and much, much more!
- Nate takes 120 seconds to give a general overview of Audio Interfaces.
This week the panel is joined by #FoTS Ty Forquer. We discuss the Grammys (GO YORK BOWEN!), Oliveros’ Cage Award, the classical cred of Radiohead vs Reich, the salvation of classical music (ASIANS!) and Sam gets buyers remorse over Glass Symphony No. 9.

- The Grammys are next week. GO YORK BOWEN!
- Pauline Oliveros gets a little Cagey (and rolls 50 large).
- Which came first – the Reich or the Radiohead? The panel proofreads The Telegraph.
- Can Asians save classical music?
- #FoTS Rob Deemer wants to let the inmates run the asylum.
- And some of the panel finds the Glass Symphony No. 9 to be only about 250% too long. Happy 75th maestro.
