Actually I couldn't continue from pg 8, where the author started with the retrograde speech of modern composers being not able to recognize their own works, that they are writting electronic music because are unable to "audiate" notes... and so on, revealing his problems in understanding the music of his own century, of his fellows musicians and composers. How someone may believe superior to Messiaen, Ligety or Berio, composers that will stand in the higest positions of our culture (With Bach or Coltrane)? Mr Gordon doesn't seem to understand that music is the expression of the culture and the self and not just what he likes.
