Laurie Spiegel – Sediment (1972)

On Wired.com, Geeta Dayal spoke with the composer and electronic-music pioneer Laurie Spiegel. The reason?

Unlike a great deal of self-styled “experimental” music, it manages to deploy a mood of grimness with a counter-intuitively light touch. [Source]

  1. Waaaw… it’s good. Never heard of her before. Have you seen her discography http://retiary.org/ls/

    Why is this on your classical blog?

    T

  2. Because it was from the same time as the Per Nørgård piano piece I played yesterday. I will re-post it on ELECTRONIC20.COM, though. It fits there as well.
