mauricio kagelMauricio Kagel born in Buenos Aires on 24 December 1931, is among the most distinctive composers of contemporary music. From the very beginning his name has been associated above all with music theatre, the genre in which he has perhaps exerted the greatest impact. Besides his radical innovations in this area, however, he has also developed a highly personal aesthetic in his absolute music.

Kagel's creative output has been enormous. It encompasses not only stage, orchestral and chamber music in an extremely wide range of instrumental settings, but also film scores, radio plays and essays. Throughout its broad spectrum, his music reveals a breach with any and all forms of academicism as well as close ties to tradition, especially to the German tradition.

Imagination, originality and humour are the hallmarks of this multimedia artist. With inexhaustible powers of invention, Kagel makes use of a very wide array of expressive devices which, although often caustic and provocative, are always placed in the service of musical discourse.

On the surface, the collaboration between Asmus Tietchens and Vidna Obmana may appear to be an unlikely one. Tietchens is a German electronic musician who has pursued "absolute music" through an almost mathematical process of rigid formal exercises. With strong ties to Karlheinz Stockhausen's early electronic work, Tietchens specializes in irregular patterns of sonic abstractions that are suspended in gray drones to create cold textural voids from external references. Vidna Obmana -- the Belgian synthesist whose real name is Dirk Sirries -- creates atmospheric moodscapes characterized by gradual shifts in tone color. Vidna Obmana's work retains a definite similarity to the evocative ambient impressions left by Brian Eno [More]

Sightings is a 3 man rock disaster from New York. The overdriven low rumbles come from the bass of Richard Hoffman, John Lockie pounds on some drums, and Mark Morgan makes ungodly noise come from his guitar and mouth. [Read more at the indipendent mind]

Yo La Tengo continues the proud Hoboken tradition of innovation that includes The Feelies and started with Frank Sinatra, but they're musical descendents of the distinctive swirling guitar rock style pioneered by New York bands like The Velvet Underground and later expanded by Television. They're the ultimate music nerd band in many ways, conspicuously unconcerned with being fashion plates and interested only in exploring the various cobwebby corners of pop arcana, from folk-pop to garage rock to post-punk to shoegazer and beyond, and reinterpreting it in an idiosyncratic and endearing style that is unmistakably Yo La Tengo [Read More at epitonic.com]
