    Attending a free concert tonight at the Library of Congress, of the Spektral Quartet with Winston Choi

    ZORN
    Le Mômo
    Library of Congress McKim Fund Commission

    WADADA LEO SMITH
    Quartet no. 9

    LEWIS
    String Quartet 1.5: Experiments in Living

    I also have a ticket for tomorrow after noon for the same artists playing Schoenberg and Milton Babbitt but my wife wants me to spend time with her instead.

    I tried signing up for a bunch of the free concerts but no surprise, only the concerts of modern music didn't sell out instantly. I do also have a ticket to see the Boston Modern Orchestra Project in June. That one still has a few tickets left.

    Boston Modern Orchestra Project, June 2, 2018 at 2:00 PM (Concerts from the Library of Congress, 2017-2018)

    That reminds me that I never posted my favorite electronic releases from last year. Maybe tomorrow.

    Had no idea about this one. Ordered. Mind you, I wonder how avant garde it really is.

    I recently purchased Highsmith by Ikue Mori and that one is more of a head-scratcher for me.

    I've been close to buying Highsmith several times, but it's been a bit pricey. Once it hits the £9 shipped mark, then I'm all over it!

    Although I've seen Mori perform live with Zorn I just don’t respond well to her electronics, so Taborn was the draw to me here. Actually, that opens up a question that may be worth discussing in this thread: how avant garde is too avant garde for you? I've listened to a fair amount over the years but I find that my instincts are still pretty conservative.

    Taborn was the draw for me too, and I really like it. It is pretty out there though.

    If you do downloads, it's available on boomkat for £7.99

    Robert Irving - Popornot. Fans of Mike Ratledge's spacier Soft Machine tracks might dig it.
