Episode 126 - Corollaries by Lubomyr Melnyk (Side A)
OH GOOD LORD IT’S ANOTHER TWO PARTER. Maybe we should get better at planning these things…
Anyway. Chris has been chomping at the bit to do this Lubomyr Melnyk album for a while. In fact, some may even remember that he brought it up during our Pandemic Mixtape. Well, the time has come to finally tackle this post-classical/minimalist work and in doing so we absolutely had to cover his…interesting thoughts on musical philosophy. Which cascades into his questionable thoughts on the actual science of how sound works. Which takes us down a big old rabbit hole, as I’m sure you can imagine.
All of this to say that it takes us a while to get to the album as a result. Also, the dude’s done like 20+ albums (although we don’t cover all of them) so that’s another whole thing we had to deal with.
We also talk about continuous music (the genre he reckons he’s in…of which he is the only practitioner), his incredible piano playing speed and a bunch more things.
We’ll chat about Corollaries next week. Also, apologies for the bad sound on Mark’s part this week.. Technical error as resulted in proper potato quality sound.
