The FADER

isomonstrosity are here to explode classical music orthodoxy

Three years ago, Yuga Cohler and Yohan Lenox were preparing their most ambitious project yet. The two friends had spent most of their young careers trying to bridge the gap between pop and classical music, collaborating on the Kanye West/Beethoven live mashup project Yeethoven, and then an “orchestral exploration of K-pop” that brought in Lincoln Center’s youngest ever crowd. Now, Cohler and Lenox had been introduced to a formidable new collaborator, the composer Ellen Reid, and they were proposing something riskier, offering pop and avant-garde musicians the opportunity to write orchestral music for the first time. They’d made contact with James Blake, FKA Twigs, and JPEGMAFIA, artists who, Lenox says, make “pretty out-there music.” If a younger audience for orchestral music existed today, they figured, it could probably be found in those artists’ fanbases.

On All Classical’s “Noteworthy,” Lynnsay Maynard Reveals Hidden Links Between Books and Music

Some people, like All Classical Portland host Lynnsay Maynard, are simply born with a passion for reading and books. “My parents have always joked that I would bring hardback books into my crib with me instead of dolls,” Maynard says, laughing. “But honestly, [reading] is one of the biggest loves of my life.” And she has carried that interest in the written word with her at All Classical, the internationally recognized radio station where she can be heard regularly in the wee hours of weekday mornings from 2 to 6.

Music News: Relaunched Orpheus Records Reissues Classical and Early Music Albums from Its Historic Catalog

When I was growing up, my parents belonged to the Musical Heritage Society, a sort of book-of-the-month club for classical music recordings. There was a quaint-looking printed catalog, and I think it was once a month or so that we ordered a new cassette tape with new baroque and classical music treasures. I first experienced the music of many composers through what was inside those little clear-plastic boxes.

Isomonstrosity

When he’s not creating string flourishes for the likes of Selena Gomez or Shawn Mendes, producer, songwriter, and arranger Johan Lenox has spent his career attempting to bridge the gap between popular and classical music. Before the pandemic, Lenox, conductor Yuga Cohler, and composer Ellen Reid had planned a Lincoln Center concert series featuring classical compositions by pop musicians such as James Blake. As COVID hit, the trio devised a new strategy: a concept record featuring music written by contemporary composers like Bryce Dessner, Wang Lu, and Carlos Simon, performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble, then forwarded to Lenox, Cohler, and Reid for chopping up. The idea was to make a contemporary classical record in the piecemeal style of a rap mixtape, recruiting guest vocalists including Danny Brown and Empress Of for a collision of voices and genres that would explore loneliness in pandemic times. Despite the conceptual potential and considerable talent involved, the execution is oddly narrow-minded, and Isomonstrosity ends up both tasteful and weirdly frustrating.

“Chant Rhythm Wars” • History Matters

M  previous installments of our series. FAMOUS LATIN AXIOM asserts, de gustibus non disputandum est: “in matters of taste, there can be no disputes”; colloquially, “there’s no accounting for taste.” Once we have moved into the realm of the subjective based on personal preferences, it indeed becomes more difficult to find common ground. It is obvious to me and nearly everyone else who has seriously studied the evidence that the Solesmes method is largely based on misinterpretation of the tenth-century MSS and does not accurately represent how chant was sung at any period during the Middle Ages, and that chant was sung differently in the twelfth century than in the tenth; here I refer not only to the practice of organum, but to the rhythm itself. In the MSS and in contemporaneous writings, a change from proportional to equal rhythm is evident, which is known to have taken place during the eleventh century. The following points are facts, not opinions:
