AMN Picks of the Week: Biota / Irabagon / McAuley

Posted: November 12, 2012 by Mike in General

Here is where I post, at a frequency of about once a week, a list of the new music that has caught my attention that week. All of the releases listed below I’ve heard for the first time this week and come recommended.

Irabagon / Pride / Barr – I Don’t Hear Nothin’ but the Blues Volume 2: Appalachian Haze (2012)
Jon Irabagon’s Outright! – Unhinged (2012)
Biota – Cape Flyaway (2012)
Jim McAuley – Gongfarmer 36: Used Strings (2012)


Iancu Dumitrescu

From Nayr Krik:

I interviewed Mr. Dumitrescu over the course of several months and received his final formulated responses on December 17th, 2011. I have made only minor edits to Dumitrescu’s responses in order to clean up typos, formatting, and to clarify some awkward sentences. I am a firm believer that drastically altering the idiomatic language of non-native English speakers risks changing the content of their thoughts and misrepresenting their personalities. This interview is extremely long, but I made a solid effort not to duplicate questions that had been asked in prior interviews. The focus of my questions clearly represents the angle of my own research and so we spent a great deal of time discussing Dumitrescu’s string music and his experiences utilizing the phenomenology of Husserl. It is my hope that this interview may prove useful to those undertaking further research into Dumitrescu and his work as well as those pursuing the important connections between phenomenological thought and the evolution of modern concert music.
