Live music, recorded music, and food pairings.
- Let’s start with a name/location check. Who’s here in the salon with us, and where? Pics welcome!
- What is the last piece of music you listened to before tonight’s salon?
- What food or beverage would you pair with the piece you named in A2?
- When did you last attend a concert with contemporary music (i.e. composer still alive) on it? Playing such a concert counts too in this scenario.
- When did you last listen to a commercially-released album with new music (composer alive) on it? NOT recordings posted online.
- We all know recordings don’t sell well. What’s your main goal when making the decision to invest time and money to record an album? (via @sugarvendil)
- Which do you think is the best medium to experience contemporary music, recording or performance? Why?
