    Been listening to Jhameel. Sounds like a mix of Sufjan Stevens, some Imogen Heap, and maybe Death Cab. [​IMG]

    Another band I saw at a WQFS free concert. Despite the unlikely nature of the event (Why would a Sub Pop-signed act play a BYOB affair in the middle of the ghetto? Did they even get paid?) they totally blew me away.

    Beethoven Op. 131 - String Quartet 14. Trying to unravel the mysteries, but thus far I suspect I'm not knowledgeable enough for it.

    Manton put you up to this, didn't he?

    The first movement opens itself up pretty easily to the ears for a fugue, and the last movement (a sonata allegro that would typically come first) makes references back to the first movement, some more audible than others. How gorgeous is that second subject in the last movement, though?

    The variations movement in the middle of the quartet took me years to "get", however.

    When I first heard the quartet, the more avant-garde details were the first things I latched onto-- the "wrong" note in the fugue subject (actually a natural note of C#min, it just forms two augmented intervals with the previous notes,) the 9/4 variation in the middle movement, the col legno playing in the scherzo, etc. I'm not sure how much the aura of sphinx-like mystery that's come to surround late Beethoven really helps appreciation of his music. I think it's more that the idea of music as expression both personal and spiritual- taken for granted these days- was pretty novel for art music of Beethoven's generation.

    huh? [​IMG] why would being signed prevent a musician from participating in a community event? most young bands are willing to put their mudsharks down for a second in order to support good radio stations, causes, etc...
