Steve Norton & Matt Samolis – Foamtoberfest – Abandoned Bear Cages, October 9



It sounds like Schoenberg’s Verklaerte Nacht the early romantic string sextet with new tinges of dissonance about the woman with her new love saying to him she is with child from another man and the night transforms her and the child becomes his Shoe the flute plays against type and is the man Steve the clarinet is the woman whose baby is transformed she is more comfortable than he is so I see the work is about making the man happy because it’s by a guy he has a beautiful daughter Nuria who married a famous Italian composer one of my favorites Luigi Nono a composer just like me but I compose words about composed music
But Steve and Shoe are improvising and I am improvising so are we really composers that’s a conundrum
