As a young man, I harbored the populist idea of writing for the public. I learned that the public didn’t care. So I decided to write for myself. Since then, people have gotten interested. — Elliott Carter
The new War From A Harlots Mouth Album will be out on the 19th of October.
It includes some short pieces for Strings composed by me: Origin, Beyond Life And Death, a passage in Catacombae and Epiphany.
“Now ‘Voyeur’ shows War From A Harlots Mouth at their most mature so far and adding new dimension with the aid of classical strings played by composer John Strieder and a guest appearance from Arkadi Zaslawski (Dioramic). Let all conventions be broken!” (Seasons Of Mist)
Listen to the Album on Bandcamp!
A quite beautiful final piece of four in the series Fractured by John Strieder. There is some slight re-tuning of the cello, to create the desired intervals of natural harmonics.
Atonality is the new black! — (War From A Harlots Mouth, german math metal band)
The question of knowing to whom my music is intended for, should not be asked. As in scientific research, we try to solve a problem because of our interest in it; and not for its practical application.
So is the question of whether anyone needs what I’m doing, unimportant. I live here and now and I am unwittingly part of a culture, and what I produce will prevail over time or not. The importance of a work of art in a culture can only be judged after it’s done. — György Ligeti
