The Resources page is under construction. It will serve as a portal to numerous points of interest for composers, researchers, and theorists. Examples of things this archive will make available are:
Neuma’s Living History Video Interview series, which consists of largely unedited interviews with important composers as they talk about their approaches to composition, their aesthetic interests, and the biography that led them to their music.
Interviews that will be uploaded soon are with Otto Laske, Thomas DeLio, James Dashow, Agostino de Scipio, and Dariusz Mazurowski. You’ll be able to hear Thomas DeLio talk about how his teacher, Oswald Jonas, made connections between the perception and the construction of Schenkerian diagrams. Or you might be interested in hearing James Dashow explain how he helped to establish the first electronic music studios in Italy. Or perhaps you’re curious about how Agostino di Scipio captures and incorporates, in real time, the spaces his music is performed in.
