Rock Critic Paul Morley writes about Earle Brown's TIMES FIVE (1963) in the Guardian
Pop belongs to the last century. Classical music is more relevant to the future.
"Earle Brown’s exploration of form and formlessness, time and timelessness, sound and silent, old and new, works brilliantly in this new world of listening to music as though it is streamed directly from one mind to another with no barriers or mediation in-between."
