Sitting down to coffee at the breakfast table this morning, my chair, having shown no previous signs of weakness, splintered into pieces and sent me tumbling to the floor. Life has its surprises. Suddenly you’re on your back in what seemed to be the safest of environments.
What I was sitting down to was my daily arts festival. The Bad Blog of Musick covering the shifting (quick)sands of the Donaueschingen new music scene: Entertainment, media. IRCAM. Orchestral music. Then and now. Finding ways out of the “dystopia of freedom”.
Also some fine thoughts from Matt Gemmell on sharing your words.
