Cold Wednesday Miscellany

Robert Ashley’s latest opera, Concrete, deals with the secrets of ordinary people who are accompanied by Ableton Live. It opens tonight. Steve Smith had a substantive piece in the Times a few days ago.

Lawrence Dillon likes the cold; go over and read some CD reviews; and I’m feeling beamy these days. Or should I?

Let’s hear it for winter!

David – Is he using Ableton Live for this piece? If yes, where did you find that out? Given the descriptions I’m reading about the piece (see – it seems that Ableton would be a perfect tool for what he needs to do performance to performance.

Chris, Ashley told me about his use of Ableton Live in an extensive interview for the Times article I wrote. There was some pride in his tone when he suggested that he must surely be the oldest user of the program.

Thanks for the link to the article, Jerry.
