Sunday, June 26, 2005Random thought before getting dressed for church: Francis Schaeffer once alluded to an aire of deconstructionism in Debussy's music. Can someone explain this to me? I can see it in a lot of free jazz (Coltrane, Coleman, Sanders) and even some neo-classical artists like John Cage and Phillip Glass, but Debussy? It never crossed my mind.
So what's the deal? Is there something particularly subjective about the structure in his music?
