Sunday Matinee 16/08/2020 — Julian Bream Showcase

For this Sunday, I’m curating a mix of full concerts and shorter pieces by the late Julian Bream, since the classical guitar community around the world are collectively still mourning his demise.

Friday Mixtape 14/08/2020

How did it get to be the middle of August already? I have no idea. Today’s mixtape was catalysed by the first line of Sufjan Stevens’s new single, Video Game. Unsure if he was calling out Depeche Mode or not but any time is a good time to hear and rock out to the first…

Sunday Matinee 09/08/2020

Hello! For Sundays, I thought I’d feature full-length things with some shorter pieces: concerts (not necessarily just classical), ballets, operas etc which are available online. We’ll start with a ballet. Note: for ballets, sometimes the pieces are choreographed dances by notable ballet choreographers set to music. I’ll place the tag (choreography) for people new to…

Saturday Soiree 08/08/2020

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted here. I’ve been too overwhelmed by life and deadlines. Today’s Saturday Soiree is inspired by the heat wave. It makes me want to listen to music that’s the equivalent of shards of ice and crystal with slabs of obsidian thrown in here and there, evoking cold, wind and the…

Saturday Soiree 19/07/2020: Tango (via Classical Guitar) Edition

This Saturday’s selection is dedicated to the beautiful Tango, which inspired this short story of mine, A Long Tango Across A Canopy of Whispering Leaves. All of these pieces are on classical guitar because that’s my current obsession right now, wanting to learn more tango pieces on the classical guitar. Hey, if you can’t dance…

Friday Night Mixtape 17/07/2020

The theme for tonight’s Friday Night Mixtape is “Bittersweet Mellow”, mostly because I started the day listening to Jesca Hoop, and because I injured my knee and therefore am hardly in the mood for dance-y type music. But there’s more than one kind of Friday Night jam. This one is for sleepy, low-energy Friday evenings…
