Michael Gordon at EMPAC Is reviewed.

Marc Ribot has released a single to celebrate the anniversary of the Occupy movement.

Pitchfork’s The Out Door discusses the impossibility of improvisation with Polish composer Zbigniew Karkowski, hikes into the varied sonic fields of Maine-based sound-manipulator Jason Lescalleet, and assesses Black Metal as depicted in the new book Beyond the Darkness.

Anthony Braxton Diamond Curtain Wall Quartet with special guest Jason Moran will perform at the Kennedy Center for the first time in 20 years on December 15.

John Cage and Pierre Boulez Miller Theater Reviewed

From NYTimes.com:

Presumably, an audience attracted to a concert in the Miller Theater’s always edifying Composer Portraits series, which focuses entirely on contemporary music, is one that would find most any Cage-related event appealing. Credit goes to the International Contemporary Ensemble (also known as ICE) for finding a new and illuminating context in which to position Cage, by juxtaposing his music with a benchmark serialist composition by Pierre Boulez, “Le Marteau Sans Maître” (“The Hammer Without a Master”), for its concert at Miller on Thursday evening.
