12 Jan 2006, 20:57 by deanchristesenI started getting in to classical music lately. It started with a need for something to listen to while I do my homework. My friend prefers the sounds of Jim O'Rourke and Glenn Kotche, the 30 minute-long songs completely consisting of white noise and other articifial sounds. I, on the other hand, can't really handle that stuff. Classical music fits nicely in the background while I work.
I first got some classical guitar, since I play in my school's guitar ensemble. So first I acquird some Andrés Segovia to accompany my Andrew York and Los Angeles Guitar Quartet. John Williams' (not the film score composer, the guitarist) Bach Lute Suites are also a nice addition to my catalog. I think I enjoy Bach the most out of any composer. I'm not sure what style they consider his works, I'll learn all that next year in music theory.
Next I went with some classics: Igor Stravinsky and Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky, as well as flute concertos from Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, aka CPE Bach.
9 Nov 2005, 05:06 by DiscoStudLast time I wrote, it was about The Go! Team and IAM, but tonight it is time to relax. I have a job interview tomorrow, and while I am not particularly stressed or concerned about that, as it is a no brainer, I am wanting to be refreshed and energetic tomorrow. How I have been in the night recently :D
So I ussually turn to The Cinematic Orchestra, Iron & Wine and the rest of my sleepy time mix when it is time for relaxation. But tonight I got to talk to Andrew, a really good friend of mine. He is taking music at a university in Halifax, and was recommending a bunch of music by Andrew York. I have already decided I really like his work, since hearing Andecy and Sunburst. Andrew (my friend) was originally going to play Sunburst for a recital but decided Andecy might better fit his current level. They are both beautiful pieces, and so I was very happy to have him share his collection with me.
Andrew York is a classical guitar player/composer and plays some wonderful music. …
