Found in Translation Rants with the Institute of Composing (9 March)

rants-3x2What gets gained or lost in translation between different artforms, genres and languages?  How do makers and consumers of culture find identity in a society where mixing-it-up is prevelant, expected even?  We’re bringing together artists and thinkers with differing viewpoints to examine and challenge received ideas and cultural norms.

Christopher Butterfield: No anxiety any more, just a lot of happy memories.

Christopher Fox’s Topophony and other goodies live (sort of)

baee540b-7ec8-405c-a624-2dd130fddb1e-1389x2040.jpegIf you follow the link below you can hear the WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln perform Topophony (2015) by Christopher Fox, along with other pieces by other composers. You have 28 days to listen before the performance disappears into the ether… The online “live” concert contains the entire emission with commentary and explanations… in German. For your convenience, you can skip to the 36 minute mark for Topophony. I suggest, however, that you start from the beginning and listen to the entire stream as it contains works by Fausto Romitelli, Malin Bång and a wonderful performance of the piano concerto for left hand, Left, Alone (2014-15), by Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen… beautiful.
