This week, we were inspired by electronic dance music artist Deadmau5. Often, performances of electronic music (popular and “classical”) involve little or no input from live performers. What then, is the purpose of such a performance?
Correction: Morton Subotnick is a happy and productive 73-year-old American composer and innovator. He is not, as Dave incorrectly asserts in this episode, dead. We apologize for the error.
Chloe Veltman got us thinking about the nature of the encore. Why do people give encores? What is the value to the audience? What does it take to get a standing ovation? (hint: not much)
What value are the customs we have developed for presenting music? How does our ritual help or harm the concert experience? How can we change the way we present concerts? Is it possible to alter such a thoroughly established ritual?
