  1. Great stuff.

    You need more writers, definitely – it must be a lot of work for you. But it’s good work.

    Looking forward to the next issue!


  2. oh, thanks!
    or to say it by a quote:

    “Works of art themself are a process, and they unfold their essence in time. It is processual. Media of this art-unfolding are comments and criticism. One can realize the importance of the criticism for the unfolding of the works best by that history does not automatically, as it is still a very common stereotype, ensure that the veracity of the works is produced, but that the process, by which truth and falsity of the works is snatched from the poor randomness of the public favor and historical preferences, has his place in the explanatory contexts which criticism offers.”
    T.W. Adorno: “Reflexionen über Musikkritik” (Reflections on Music Criticism) in: Kaufmann “Symposion für Musikkritik” (1968), p.8
