Rainy Day Music

Finally it looks like the drought here in North Carolina may be abating! I might even take a shower. Someday.

This week we present you with a new avant classical piece from a FOB (friend of BitWorks), composer Eduardo Cervantes. The beginning reminds me of Steve Reich. Click here to download "Primrose Street" or here to stream without downloading.

A few weeks ago I made another excursion to the Philbog for an exciting evening of noisiness, industrial, and electronica. I would like to write more about this, and had intended to do so already (lazy!), but it's difficult to talk about music that falls far outside the usual constraints of genre and expectation. Elvis Costello said: "Talking about music is like dancing about architecture." (also attributed to various others, including Steve Martin, but anyway..) Talking about this sort of music is like dancing about architecture .. on Tralfamadore.
