Rather than Saturday 25th, the Maximal broadcast tkes place on fact, tonight, March 3rd. For this show we cock an ear at the u:ber cross-genre form that's been exploding dancefloors all over the world with such bravado. Strangely I came across this format while hunting Iranian dance music, so thanks to Monosurround.
We've a hard task ahead because the definition for contemporary Maximalist music is already out of date, but we'll sample a David A. Jaffe track, for sure:
Contemporary maximalist music, defined by composer David A. Jaffe "embraces heterogeneity and allows for complex systems of juxtapositions and collisions, in which all outside influences are viewed as potential raw material." Examples include might be Edgard Varèse, Charles Ives, andFrank Zappa. The show is followed by an interview with Jaffe, and then an hour or so of his early works.
