MUSIC UNDERGROUND is about ideas, about philosophy, about relating to what is happening from an outsider/insider point of view. I don’t review music events – let alone the fact that I am unable to attend most of them, even the ones I like the best. I might mention the occurrence of certain events as they strike me for their significance; I might qualify certain events as uptown or downtown or underground, but I am not a critic. I do not make comments on another composer’s music. I am glad that many composers are writing and I think it is a positive manifestation of freedom of expression. But I am not in the category of those who ‘tear each other apart’. This goes against my ethics and I will not stand being called a critic when all I am doing is expressing ideas and attempting to take part in a zeitgeist.
