Last night I played the John Martyn video from 1987 in Dublin with Danny Thompson. I enjoyed it so much that I missed the first half of the second episode of Line of Duty. I caught up later on i-player. The narrative is twisting and turning well and the episode ended with a shock.
I wrote to Andy H about the treatment of the harmonic series in the 2nd Ch of his Music and Aesthetics and he wrote back almost immediately saying that he is slowly working on a second edition. I have just started a Ch on the boundaries of music - whether there is a separate endeavour called Sound Art for example. I am missing my access to Spotify - as this feeling increases I may well have to sign up for the paid-for service.
I caught the last half of Mahler's 9th Symphony on R3 this afternoon. I find hard not to hear it as the end of an era while the future of music is happening elsewhere at the same time.
