New Music
The world of 'classical music' might seem an unusual topic for Split Screen, but current trends in 'new music' composition can arouse strong passions in musicians and audiences alike.
William Scanlan Murphy , a music graduate and author, claims that 'many people would say that they don't just dislike what they're hearing - they'd say it wasn't music at all'.
Simon Emmerson , a composer and lecturer, responds that composers are developing a music which calls 'upon a vast variety of resources, some traditional, some experimental, some acoustic and electronic ... Let us welcome their new vitality'. Film editors
