*Dear friends*, just a short note to share (again) our PROBES #13 podcast
by Chris Cutler. The link we shared was temporarily wrong, because of a
human error. Sorry for the inconvenience!
*PROBES #13 tracks the recovery and reassignment of ancient and folk
instruments in unfamiliar contexts.*
In the late nineteenth century two facts conspired to change the face of
music: the collapse of common practice tonality (which overturned the
certainties underpinning the world of art music), and the invention of a
revolutionary new form of memory, sound recording (which redefined and
greatly empowered the world of popular music). A tidal wave of probes and
experiments into new musical resources and new organisational practices
ploughed through both disciplines, bringing parts of each onto shared
terrain before rolling on to underpin a new aesthetics able to follow sound
and its manipulations beyond the narrow confines of 'music'. This series
tries analytically to trace and explain these developments, and to show
how, and why, both musical and post-musical genres take the forms they do.
The complete PROBES series so far can be found here:
