A small weekend night list with favorite pieces.
01. Bach - Aria from Goldberg Variation [hp]
My idea of perfect music, serene and well balanced. Elegant. A piece is so delicate, it reveals the temprament of any musicians who plays it. Either it's there, or not.
02. The Nels Cline Singers - Suspended Head
A small group lead by avant jazz guitarist Nels Cline, amazing works. Their CD is worth owning.
03. Matmos - The Struggle Against Humanity
High quality IDM. It deserves wider recognition for their cutting edge work. A decade from now, we will still dabble with what they are doing. There is certain poignant hope in their mechanical like texture. Very elegant.
04. Lauren K. Newman - Bleak, Ruined Choir of One
She is a brave one, screaming her head off. Her pieces are like a giant storm, coming in and wiping everything out with raw emotion.
05. The 90 days men - The Methodist
An obscure Chicago mathrock group. Three decades ahead of their time.
06. Fridge - Lign
This 40 seconds work sums up perfectly what post-rock is. It says what it has to say then end. Honest and sweet.
