After listening to the electronica and idm tags on last.fm earlier today, I'm listening to Scott Unrein's NonPop Show podcast number 13. Hearing Peter Garland's piano piece Jornada del Muerto: Hermit Songs gives me a sense of clarity after all that glitch and drone. It also obviates the post I was thinking about writing on how last.fm and its ilk are so convenient and how they ultimately cut into my classical music time. Never mind.
But the fascinating dichotomy about Garland is the contrast between his angry, intransigent musicologist persona and the delicate, intuitive beauty of his music.
