Ca c'est de l'interview - Ilhan Mimaroglu


- Are you catching up with the latest developments in music, more specifically a variety of derivatives of modern electronic music such as IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) and Ambient whose creators cite Stockhausen, Cage and Glass as their influence? - Leaving aside very many ballet scores of the past and the present (inclusive of electronic music for dance), which are indeed intelligent in various degrees, what I have been hearing all along in the field of dance music can be termed as MDM, moronic dance music, that is. As such, "intelligent dance music" is a typical contradiction in terms and its relevance to electronic music is beyond my comprehension.

Regarding the matter of pronouncing the names of those three composers in one breath, if I had tried to do that I would suffocate and spit out Philip Glass.

- Where do you see electronic music in 50 years time?
- Having no oracular pretensions, I do not try to see the future of electronic music.

vers 1967 ce compositeur a créé une oeuvre que je qualifierais d,électronique basée sur le poème Le Tombeau d'Edgar Poe, oèu puis-je trouver cette oeuvre en 2007

Exact, il semblerait qu'il soit actuellement épuisé... je peux pas t'en dire plus, un peu de patience et ce genre d'enregistrement finit toujours par revenir sur quelque label ou compilation ...
