New Recording of Arnold Schönberg’s Voice A previously unknown voice recording of Arnold Schönberg providing commentary on his symphonic poem Pelleas und Melisande Op. 5 has just been digitized and thus made audible for the first time. Christian Fennesz ::: Chris Swithinbank Sound About UbuWeb Sound Originally focusing on Sound Poetry proper, UbuWeb's Sound section has grown to encompass all types of sound art, historical and contemporary. Beginning with pioneers such as Guillaume Apollinaire reading his "Calligrammes" in 1913, and proceeding to current practitioners such as Vito Acconci or Kristin Oppenheim, UbuWeb Sound surveys the entire 20th century and beyond. Categories include Dadaism, Futurism, early 20th century literary experiments, musique concrete, electronic music, Fluxus, Beat sound works, minimalist and process works, performance art, plunderphonics and sampling, and digital glitch works, to name just a few.

UbuWeb embraces non-proprietary, open source media. UbuWeb

Ustvolskaya lived in constant poverty. Ustvolskaya’s music is unique and does not resemble any other. Her composition teacher was Dmitry Shostakovich. Boris Tishchenko: Galina Ustvolskaya: ...
