Brubaker also notes that listeners of his music download other particular artists. My comments on his list:
- Radiohead. I'm not yet to the point of needing medication but yes, I'm pretty much obsessed with Radiohead. I did give up on my project to rank Radiohead tracks from 1 to n.
- Death Cab for Cutie. Not so interested.
- Carl Craig. Vaguely know who this is.
- Aphex Twin. Fifteen months after being rear-ended on 101 while listening to this music, I still have an aversion to it. Though, kudos to the California Highway Patrol, Allstate Insurance, and even the guy who hit me after he suggested I move away from traffic and get back into my car, given my stunned state.
- Mozart as played by Radu Lupu. My one and only visit to Carnegie Hall was to hear Lupu play Chopin. Peak experience.
Of William Duckworth's work:
On the minimalist side, the Preludes are spare and meditative, each pursuing a single rhythmic figure to the end. With the exception of moody Prelude No. 6, however, none are literally repetitive. Every one is grounded by drones, a device minimalism picked up from Indian music. Rather than hum consistently, though, the drones appear and disappear, shift delicately from pitch to pitch, and define each prelude’s rhythmic backbone. (DRAM)
and if i were 30 years younger and/or didn't have a mortgage, i'd probably respond to brubaker's craigslist ad.
