Soundings

I read and recommend Marc Weidenbaum’s book, Selected Ambient Works Volume II, on the Aphex Twin album of the same name, part of the 33-1/3 series. Fortunately, as currently and temporally overburdened, I’ve found someone to write a review, which will be published in the April issue of the Brooklyn Rail.

Weidenbaum has also written the notes for an absorbingly focussed new record of music from Dave Seidel, made entirely of sine waves. Listen and purchase below.

I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
