Funny, I've often thought something similar about music from British
Columbia. Longer works, larger gestures, less relief. I use to almost
be able to 'see' the ocean, the coast, the Rockies. Our music back in
Montreal always seemed jumpier, like the difference between an espresso
and iced tea. Of course, somebody will find 3 composers/pieces to
contradict this idea!
