New podcast:
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/probes-24-1-chris-cutler/capsula> follows
composers as they raid the toy-box – and the bierkeller – in search of new
non-electronic sonorities to drive both the driest contemporary
compositions and the wettest pop singles.

In the late nineteenth century two facts conspired to change the face of
music: the collapse of common practice tonality (which overturned the
certainties underpinning the world of art music), and the invention of a
revolutionary new form of memory, sound recording (which redefined and
greatly empowered the world of popular music). A tidal wave of probes and
experiments into new musical resources and new organisational practices
ploughed through both disciplines, bringing parts of each onto shared
terrain before rolling on to underpin a new aesthetics able to follow sound
and its manipulations beyond the narrow confines of ‘music’. This series
tries analytically to trace and explain these developments, and to show
how, and why, both musical and post-musical genres take the forms they do. In
music boxes and balloons find new roles in contemporary compositions, pop
performances, film scores and jazz improvisation, as composers explore
alternative acoustic sources for extended, non-electronic, sounds.
