- 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…
