Holyfuck. I hadn't thought of Sofia Gubaidulina in a couple of years until I saw Alex Ross' blogpost yesterday. Went and searched WFMU and here, an entire Bryce show of Gubaidulina from 2010. Holyfuck. That's all I got, don't care if it's not enough.


OK, you can have more. Glorious Percussion, plus:


  1. Uhm...if I have to sit through 3 minutes of Train Entering Farragut North While Pretentiously Clutching Accordion And Looking Dramatic to get to anything resembling melody, and then even not really? Well, fuck you very much.

    Yeah. Profound. Whatever.

  2. Thanks for the tip, Landru, as I gave up at 1:54 faintly wondering what I was missing.

  3. Don't make him mad! He'll change the background back to eyeball-burning blue.

  4. Oh, no. He took the bait and once again changed his banner pic to a still from the ST:TOS episode I most recently watched with Databoy. His sense of rhythm, style, and melody is unmatched.

    Unlike Sofia the Pretentious Bulgarian Asshat Accordionist.

    Sorry, dogma-N...fool me once, shame on you. Fool me every fucking time for 42 motherfucking years, shame on me. Old Russian saying, you know.

  5. To be honest, it'd been up overnight, took it down this morning, then Thunder's comment reminded me how wonderfully Garth's cape matched the new green and it's back for the day. And Earthgirl thinks it's a good photo of her too.

  6. It seems to me that the mere sight of the cordeen should have stopped you ...

  7. Who does Star Trek references these days? And why?

    BDR goes green: is this some new metaphor for his new-found, yet old & trite, eco-csns and diversity-sensitivity? Or is it just another pretty color?

  8. If there is one thing I have learned about you dear have THE MOST eclectic music tastes of anyone I know on the intertoobs.
