@Fantasticdrfox, that’s composer Christopher Fox, pointed to a “leisurely portrait of the perennially youthful Christian Wolff” in a tweet last week.
That got me thinking back on the Cage/Feldman Radio Happenings I was listening to a few weeks ago, and how struck I was by their confidence in Christian Wolff as a pivotal figure. Feldman: “I’m convinced that Christian will have the place of Webern in terms of the mind.”
I’ve always found Christian Wolff to be the kind of composer capable of awakening a feeling of wanting to create something oneself. Perhaps that’s exactly what we need right now.
