There is much of interest here, a lot of it unfamiliar to me – which is how it should be – and not a single Beat Furrer work in sight, which has to count for something. For more see here, though best ignore the thought bubbles – is the obliviousness some joke I’m not getting? If not, then the Spain one (‘Does an insular position at the outermost reaches of the continent allow the preservation of a locally ascribable and identifiable musical idiom?’) really is something.
