Sure, K
I'm in this case, on the other side of this standardization.
But look, this fact continues since a lot of years, in instrumental and
electronic composition, for the standard contemporary music concerts and
festivals. The most common ones present concerts or events with several
composers, so you have only 10mn or 12, maximum 15.
The same sentence is always here: "please don't propose a too long musical
Fo this, since several years, I make musical pieces around 20 to 40
minutes, or pieces which don't fit to the concert halls or to acousmatic
