Meta-music

2004-02-16

Every artistic practice it seems maps itself grammatically as if part of speech. Documentary photography the most literal application of an already empiristic medium privileges the noun the thing itself. Action painting tautologically speaking is all verb. Impressionism? Adjectival. More and more contemporary music – from the pop charts to the world of academic computer music and gallery installations – positions itself prepositionally It is meta-music music about music sound about sound and process about well process.

From the sleeve notes for
“Splitting bits Closing Loops: Sound on Sound”
Accompanying CD for LMJ Vol 13
