10th International Biennial for Electroacoustic Music of São Paulo

Yesterday opened the 10th International Biennial for Electroacoustic Music of São Paulo, organized by composer Flo Menezes, the founder of the Studio PANaroma de Música Eletroacústica.

Check out below the amazing program, including the projection of Stockhausen's Hymnen in a 52 speaker sound theater!

I had the great pleasure to meet Flo Menezes in Kürten, Deutschland, when I attended the Stockhausen courses for the first time. Flo Menezes is as generous as his music; his experience and knowledge is immense, and he is always ready to share with musicians and students.

Nova Ars Subtilior

Last year, Wolke Verlag published Flo Menezes's new book: Nova Ars Subtilior - Essays zur maximaoistischen Musik. The book includes all of Menezes's Cologne lectures, as well as a conversation with editor Ralph Paland, in German. Menezes wrote other essays in English, about not only maximalist music, but also electroacoustic music, music and politics, Adorno, time in music, and more.

Make sure you visit the Works section of Flo Menezes's web site to listen to reductions of a couple of his compositions. I would recommend to pay attention first to electroacoustic works, or music with live electronics: he is an important composer of electroacoustic music.
