QtL.15 - Talking Elliott Smith with Dr. Rob Schultz

Music theorist Rob Schultz explains Elliott Smith's fixation on paradox and how it manifested in his life, lyrics, and tonal language. We go in-depth with analyses of "Speed Trials," "Baby Britain," "Waltz No. 2," "Everything Means Nothing to Me," and "Sweet Adeline." Read Schultz' "Tonal Pairing and the Relative-Key Paradox in the Music of Elliott Smith":  www.mtosmt.org/issues/mto.12.18.4/mto.12.18.4.schultz.html
