Continuo’s Weblog, long the gold standard of experimental music blogs, has recently announced that it will be closing its doors after five years of activity.
During this time, Continuo unearthed innumerable musical gems that would otherwise have been consigned to oblivion.
Continuo’s project exerted a formative influence on my work and his words of encouragement were a huge inspiration in the early days of Acousmata. His site stands as a monument to his generous and visionary spirit.
Anyone who has ever digitized old LPs and scanned album covers knows how time-consuming and painstaking this work can be. Continuo did it with aplomb, at a pace that never ceased to astonish me, and somehow found the time to write insightful commentary for each post as well.
Continuo will carry on his explorations, sans musique, at Continuo’s Documents.
