Free concert recording

The EMC founder Christopher Hobbs played a lunchtime concert at Coventry University on 5 November 2014. The programme consisted of:

Terry Jennings: Piano Piece 1960
Morton Feldman: Intermission 5 (1952)
Christian Wolff: Play (1968) (with Chris Evans, perc.)
John Cage: Music for Marcel Duchamp (1947)
Christopher Hobbs: Sudoku 137 (2013)
Terry Jennings Piano Piece 1 1965 “Winter Trees”

We thought that it was a shame that everyone couldn’t be sent to Coventry, at least for this one concert, so we’ve put up a recording. To give it a listen, press here:,_Coventry,_5_November_2014.html

Aspects of British Experimental Music on

Virginia Anderson’s PhD thesis, ‘Aspects of British Experimental Music as a Separate Art-Music Culture’ (Royal Holloway, University of London, 2004) is available online on the site for free download: . This academic study of various aspects of the British experimental and systems music group has not been freely available before. Containing early versions of several of her articles and chapters on Cardew’s Treatise, English systems, text notation and the Scratch Orchestra (some of which are free to download on the same page), this paper might be of interest to those students of British experimental music.
