New music that acts like old music is not new music. / by petergregson

The whole "why can't contemporary music be more like contemporary art" thing is tiring. Why not look at this another way: new music that is designed to act like old music is not new music. if you want to look at something exciting for the future, if you want something bright and shiny to commission that is changing the landscape, go and look at generative music. I'm convinced this is the right space in which to be commissioning right now. This stuff gets me so ridiculously excited, in fact, that Reactify and I are collaborating on a whole new performance interface to make it possible. Expect more news soon...
