Hey guys, on my constant search for new music I came across this truly fascinating and moving piece by Stephen Scott and had to share it with you all :D



Tell me your thoughts! I'd love to hear everyone's opinion on this piece.

Very nice piece!!
Thank you Jazzzzz-E!!!

(wasn't crazy re: it beg w/ 'perc', but then...:-))

very (obviously) reminiscent of Cage, Reich, Riley, Eno, Budd and Zorn, but with (excluding Steve Reich) a VERY modern, (as-in 2010 'modern'-modern)and percussive piece .. imo he should have used more time to let it develop and morph more deceptively, but all 'n' all .. of the new music i have heard of late and easy, this is a very strong B+ ... maybe there IS hope for the 21st century composer after all!

RAWK!

Interesting. It sounds like a soundtrack for ending credits to a weird movie. It was unique, something I haven't seen before, but I got a little bored with it around 6 minutes into it. I thought it could have used another movement to make it even more interesting. It was a nice soundscape.

Very, very cool. I took some piano lessons over the summer from friend who just graduated with a piano major and she was telling me all about these "prepared pianos". I can only assume this is what she was talking about. I'd never actually heard one until now!

@foogered
while i don't know if this is classified as prepared piano, it very well might be, when prepared piano is talked about i think more about John cage's Sonatas with it(not the first nor the last or best, but one of the most popular). when objects are put between the the strings to alter the sound(mainly timbre). Not so much of direct string contact which is what going on here, but again i might be wrong. Very popular with guitarist too, most popular name that comes to might is sonic youth, but contemporary classical guitarist do it too.

@main topic
I hate to be the negative guy, but it turns out I'm him right now. I don't really hear anything in this. Sure this is a interesting and very good idea of how to play the piano, and besides people spacing issues it is very practical(in my opinion). That other topic on instruments of the future, I didn't see it as anything but flashy lights this i see as very possible or the idea behind it at lest(which isn't new in any short of way). But musically as was said before me it's very boring(maybe not "very" I'm adding that), and i wouldn't even give it a second listen. Listen to the music of, as mentioned above, Steve Reich. his compositions are amazing(my favorite defiantly top 5 classical and in general composers of the early 21st) if you think he is just early 1970 phase music your surly mistaking(which I'm not implying anyone is just a general statement to prove a point on 21st music), even if we just had him there would be no doubt in the future of 21st century music. There countless people out that are doing exciting things. maybe it is just jaded feelings or the white noise of our time, but i don't get were everyone is getting this.

personally I have been listen to early turn of the century American classical, like Charles Ives and Leo Ornstein(if anything listen to him). but really this, In my opinion, is lame at best I'm sorry i hate to put downs peoples work. good idea the rest no so much. And as always, i hope this goes without saying, this is just my opinion and isn't a attack on any one. just debating turns out I'm the no sayer always has to be one.



also is it just me, but does anyone find it hilarious how since the 1960s/70s Sympathetic strings are coming back to western music which common practice and early jazz killed off(or should i said down played).

I didn't know that :( Maybe it was the teacher's form of a joke. I'm so dissapointed now.

I don't see anything wrong with bringing stuff back, it was amazing back then, so there's no harm in trying to make it amazing now.

i have a friend w/ Masters in Theory and Comp, (now learning how much that earns, unfortunately) who has Taken Charles Ive's most 'out' stuff and scored it for guitar , but only in his head(not crazy-crazy, but rather crazy-smart)He will sit at a 'Jazz' club or some fufu Fern-Bar where they play crap like YellowJackets, Rippingtons and Yanni lol!, and play Ive's all night for 200bucks + tips...
funny thing is NO-ONE has yet to realize that he NOT playing 'Jazz'.
a scary thing imo.

and i'm with ya Bro! Steve Reich is Tops (or shares, fer me, "tops" w/ Phillip Glass.

RAWK!
