About Episode 1:
This two-hour long first episode of Listening Club explores the audible influences of Modern Music on 1970s Progressive Rock and features recordings of compositions by Egg and Stravinsky.
Episode highlights include the use in music of asymmetric and multi-metric rhythms, not as capricious novelties, but as grammatical tools that make musical sentences feel surprising, less redundant, more poetic, natural and easier to discern.
About the Listening Club series:
Created by Gustavo Matamoros, the Listening Club is a series of listening experiences curated for the stimulation of the sound mind: the mind with which we listen. The 2022 season is in four parts and makes its Coral Gables debut in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Books and Books.
