Laurence Crane’s music is often described as experimental or considered as a continuation of the English experimental tradition. In this first extended examination of Crane’s music it is proposed that, instead of relying upon associations and aesthetic alignments,the music might be considered as experimental through a particularly experimental approach to performance. After a brief overview of Crane’s output his position as a composer is considered within the context of the experimental music tradition. This tradition is then considered in relation to performance practice, both historical and contemporary.
A selection of Crane’s music is examined in the light of that practice, whilst aspects of the composer’s approaches to tonality, instrumentation, form and notation are also highlighted.
