The glorious, mysterious READ ME by LA composer Ethan Braun is released worldwide today by figureight records.
With READ ME, Braun poses the question: “what is music supposed to be?” The album’s compositional process deliberately evades meaning and purpose, offering instead a transparent, level relationship between listener, music, composer and performer. In other words: anyone can determine what this music is for. And by framing them within a written text, these pieces can be read as if one and the same medium as the document.
