Open Your Ears! Microtones Are Everywhere!

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 6 December 2009

Greg Sandow, in his blog on ArtsJournal, has written a post entitled “Crossing Cultures” concerning a few of his own personal learning experiences concerning world music (or “World Music”, preferably):  Afro-Caribbean-Guatamalan 18th century classical music (Yes!), Australian-Aboriginal loose-knit melodic-rhythmic cycles (not really improvisations, but highly, interestingly, out there), and Tunisian modal microtones (you can listen to for yourself!), and a snippet of Sibelius!.  And all this in the name of the future of classical (Western) music!  Ambitious, fascinating, a bit complicated, but fun for everyone with ears.  And aspiring to a Night in Tunisia.
