FMV, one of the most difficult and important musical problems of our
time is how to most effectively and convincingly, combine the traditional
orchestra with electronic instruments/sound sources. I would be interested in
what new ideas Mr. Huebner brings to this challenge. However, To be straight
forward, from the musical examples I have listened to, I think it would be
utterly ridiculous to suggest that Mr. Huebner is in any way the next great
German composer in the line of Beethoven, Brahms, Wagner ect...I do think that
his research into Musical Resonance Therapy is perhaps valid as well as his
Dynamic Space Stereophony, however some of the claims made on the various sites

dedicated to his works are almost infuriating. Examples:

Following quotes from:

http://www.micromusiclaboratories.com/04%20Classical%20Music/
0401%20Success%20in%20Cl%20Music.htm

Quote from Peter Huebner:

"The fact that I am supposed to be the most successful classical composer of
our time, doesn’t say much – because, as far as I know, I am the only one.

Quote from Peter Huebner

"From this point of view, the time of the avant-garde, 12 tone music and serial
music is an episode which dominated just for half a century - similar to the
reactor accident in Tschernobyl"

Quote from Prof. Dr. Zvi Rothenberg

"This music is the answer to the decadence of our time. This is true music,
music from the source, compositions of the quality of Bach, Vivaldi, and
Corelli"

Notice that most of the comments by Mehta, Rostropovich, Karajan, and Ashkenazy

are directed towards his position in music therapy as well recording
technology. I can accept his position as some sort of homeopathic sonic doctor
but the quoted statements shown above, I think display not only tremendous
arrogance but an attitude which illustrates how unaware of his signifigance in
relation to the rest of the world. Perhaps I am the one who is out of touch
with the world, but I sincerely hope that the future of music is not in the
hands of Mr.Huebner. Please forgive my frankness.
