    One of the greatest American composers at the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy in New York. Along with Steve Reich, Philip Glass’ minimalist compositions transformed the world of classical music and, eventually, popular music in general. Glass’ early epiphanies occurred in Paris during his time in the mid-’60s studying under Nadia Boulanger and working with Ravi Shankar. Throughout the ’70s Glass refined his work, resulting in career-defining compositions like Music in 12 Parts and Einstein on the Beach. In the process he became a popular sensation, a serious composer who wasn’t willfully obscure or too difficult to understand. Glass’ stunning soundtrack work for films like The Thin Blue Line and The Hours has only elevated his standing as one of America’s greatest living composers.

        The evolution of orchestral music through time. Between 1750 and 1940, there has been great changes. A book by Paul Bekker, written in 1936, describes (with music and composers examples) how it was done. This video is a personal collection of pieces whom composers are referred to the book, sort of reading and listening at the same time.

            This video of student composers in Liège, from the class of Professor Michel Fourgon, was created on September 25th, 2008. Through the interview, I asked them about their inspirations, coursework, and future projects and as always, received a wide variety of responses (though they were a bit camera shy at first). I am currently working on a translation and will post an edited video with an English translation and some adjustment of the sound quality as soon as possible. Happy listening!

                      Frouke Wiarda uses the kite as an instrument to translate the 'inaudible' and the invisible windlayers into sound. Première Musicaerial: international festival Gaudeamus (Utrecht). In 2012: festival Into the Great Wide Open (Vlieland). In 2013: Festival Oerol (Terschelling). Lift, gravity and drag form the basis for a musical and visual journey. Musicaerial is an event in which the kite is an artwork and the extra sense to hear the movements of the wind and the earth's sound. When balanced, the kite is at rest and a still point of art in the ocean sky, humming the sounds of the universe. Sending a message from the earth up and out into the sky, the kite is sending back a new soundperspective of the earth and the wind. For this project, Frouke Wiarda asked eleven artists to design a flying artwork. A kite-specialist will turn them into flying kite-objects. Eleven composers and sound artists are going to write and perform music for and with this new instrument. Participating artists, composers and soundartists: Wouter Klein Velderman, Nico Huijbregts, Dyane Donck, Zoro Feigl, Stephan Balleux, Lisa Holden, Wouter Snoei, Arnaud Gerniers, Peter Vos, Tineke van Veen, Neon en Landa, Meri Nikula, Wilbert Bulsink, Christina Viola Oorebeek, Danny de Graan, Radboud Mens, Nanette Kraaikamp, Jeroen Hermkens, Marije Baalman en vliegermaker Benny Schreur. video: Leica D-Lux 5 sound: direct from camera built in mic rejected sound: Olympus LS-11 (I removed the wind shields, bad idea) rejected sound: Yamaha Pocketrak C24 (the camera sound is closer to the action)
