Learned from Shulamit Ran
Tonight, violist Melia Watras performs the world premiere of Perfect Storm, by composer Shulamit Ran. I went to hear Ran speak this afternoon at the University of Washington's School of Music.
Here are two things I liked from her talk:
- In the early 20th century, there was the emancipation of dissonance. Why not have an emancipation of consonance?
- Every work must contain the seeds of its own destruction.
