I don’t know why people believe dark and light are two different things. I’m more interested in looking at how they’re not. That really frustrates me. People have a limited perception of things.
Here’s a really thoughtful interview with clarinetist/composer/sound-mangler Jeremiah Cymerman on Tiny Mix Tapes. His caustic works mess with perception and structure as if they were harmonious battles to pacify and taunt at once, like a sonic trickster. I highly recommend listening to his new album, Sky Burial, at Bandcamp, one of my early favorites of 2013.
