Newsletter June 2005

Charles Ives' Universe Symphony will be released July 4th 2005.

Every time we add something new, you'll see a linked guide to it here, with our archive of past Newsletters.

If you join the Stereo Society, you will receive a monthly newsletter with direct links to everything new and announcements about fresh downloads etc. 
Please forward a copy to a friend.

Some of you will have missed our April/May Newsletter.  In anticipation of our releases, we’re changing a lot of what we do, sometimes awkwardly, including our E mail procedures.  Just in case, you’ll find the April note repeated at the end of this one.

Our first release in a while is of Johnny Reinhard’s new landmark realization of Ives Universe Symphony, and is scheduled for July 4th in honor of the ‘father of American music’.  Before him, composers in the United States were cowed by the European traditions.  Ives, by blowing it all apart, encouraged a whole following generation of adventurous music-makers to experiment and innovate.  His music still sounds radical today. 

This huge piece, for 74 musicians and lasting 64 minutes, is almost half pure percussion (14 players).  This ear candy anticipates explorations by others much later.

We have been quietly adding many Ives-related pages to the site, including some interesting graphics for download.  For those of you who don’t know too much about the man, start with the three short sections of Ives Primer, then wander off elsewhere.  You will find many articles, including two by Johnny Reinhard, listed on our Ives home page.

More details of the release in the next newsletter, along with a guide to the newly revamped site.  In the meantime, WNYC will broadcast an interview with Johnny Reinhard and Mike Thorne about the making of the CD, at 2pm on Monday June 6th.  In the New York vicinity tune to 93.9FM, elsewhere catch the live stream feed at www.WNYC.org.

Some of you may not find live links in the delivered E mail.  You will always find the current newsletter, with live links, on our New page.  Old newsletters are also accessible from there, all with live links.
