*New podcast: PROBES #20, by Chris Cutler*

Chris Cutler traces the immense impact Indian instruments and aesthetics
had on both thinking and playing, across all forms of western music from
Messiaen and La Monte Young to John Coltrane and the Beatles.

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.
