*2- PROBES series. Curated by Chris Cutler
PROBES <http://rwm.macba.cat/en/probes_tag> takes Marshall McLuhan’s
conceptual contrapositions as a starting point to analyse and expose the
search for a new sonic language made urgent after the collapse of tonality
in the twentieth century. The series looks at the many probes and
experiments that were launched in the last century in search of new musical
resources, and a new aesthetic; for ways to make music adequate to a world
transformed by disorientating technologies.
You can find the latest instalment of the series, exploring the impact of

*VARIATIONS, by Jon Leidecker <http://rwm.macba.cat/en/variations_tag/>*
The idea of a completely original piece of music is fairly recent. Music
was passed on through sound, through generations, even for centuries after
the invention of written music. Only in the 14th century did it become
standard practice for a composer to sign his name to a piece of music and
claim it entirely as his own, giving rise to the cult of the individual
composer. But as recording supplanted sheet music in the 20th century, the
presence of communal influence became unavoidably obvious once again as
composers began to use recordings to make new recordings. We can now hear
the presence of more than one voice. And there is a reason why people don't
say they listen to a record – they say that they play a record. From the
beginning, recordings have been instruments.
