Tower of Power

In the same vein of yesterday's post, check out this article on composer Joan Tower in the Kansas City Star. You may have to create an account to view it.

Some highlights from the article :

“My music is about a kind of visceral communication,” she has said, “a kind of sharing. It’s colorful and accessible. I want it to be heard.”

Music itself is neither masculine nor feminine, Towers argues. It’s either good or it’s bad.

“Everything in music goes counter to what we think of as feminine or masculine,” she said. “It just doesn’t apply.”
