Dear RMCC group
A friend of mine wrote this article that I hope might be of interest to you:
CLASSICAL'S NEW COMMON PRACTICE
As principle and poetics by Daniel Barbiero
"For a significant current in contemporary composed and improvised music, new instrumental performance practices, and the compositional possibilities they open up, all stand as something like a contemporary analogue of the old common practice of tonal
harmony. I would like to extend this idea and suggest that these practices are more than a collection of techniques, as important as that may be in itself, but constitute something like a creative principle for contemporary music. Seeing this requires us
to step back a moment and take a broader perspective--one that comes from abstract visual art."
