I read Robert Lister's blog entry about 12 tone and blame (or should I say "the blame game"). I too agree, I am certainly no fan of twelve - tone music (but I do have my favorite works), the style is long gone and we cannot blame it any longer for the ills of modern music (loss of audience, not relevant, etc and etc). There are many exciting new works which can capture our ears in so many ways, and the main thing now is to disseminate new music and to get people even aware that we exist. New music festivals are of course one way, but how do we get ordinary people to discover that we are here and composing music? I am too tired to write more at the moment, but will pick up on this thread next time.
