Sofia Gubaidulina’s Symbolic Sonorous World

From Extended Techniques:

Sofia Gubaidulina
Cover of Sofia Gubaidulina

music is highly symbolic and unusual in timbre, both in terms of instrumental combinations and use of extended techniques. The symbolism behind the sounds often carries spiritual connotation; in 1998 the composer even stated that all her works were religious, which in her understanding had nothing to do with the church. This is one of the reasons why some of her music banned in the USSR and some were not performed until its fall.

Matt Bauder is without question one of the most talented, proficient and soulful musicians that I know. He does things on the saxophone that make me want to quit music forever. He’s also a handsome cat (look at this mug). For this talk Matt and I examine a lot of our own frustrations with trying to build a life around music as well as look back at Matt’s high school years with Wolf Eyes, Colin Stetson and Andrew WK.

Taylor Ho Bynum Interview

From the NEA:

Taylor Ho Bynum Sextet
Taylor Ho Bynum Sextet (Photo credit: John Pham)

Cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum is one of the freshest and most innovative voices composing and playing music today. As a leader, collaborator, sideman, and composer, Ho Bynum continually pushes the outer boundaries of jazz, and his list of collaborators reads like a list of “who’s who” in the avant-garde music scene. He has played with 1990 NEA Jazz Master Cecil Taylor, Wadada Leo Smith, and Bill Dixon, and his long and fruitful collaboration with 2014 NEA Jazz Master Anthony Braxton remains one of the great working musical relationships. Apparently never sleeping, Ho Bynum also leads two bands and has a successful solo career as a cornetist. It’s a formidable schedule, but it’s fueled by the ability to find inspiration wherever it might be. – See more at: http://arts.gov/photos/taylor-ho-bynum-notions-inspiration#sthash.EImAlhGU.dpuf
