I would just do a history for him starting with himself. But advances? Hmmm...
Anthony Braxton's Creative Orchestra Music would be good... a bit like a marching band of the best jazz musicians hit with LSD...
Conalan Nancarrow Studies for Player Piano
Mahvishnu Orchestra Birds of Fire
I’d blast Rising Force then yell, “IN YOUR FACE! USA! USA! USA!”
Depends on what composer you're talking about and when they're from.
Half hour is absurd.
First thing I would do is play a recording of one of his own pieces, since recording would be totally new.
Then, I would show a modern Steinway, then a high powered synthesizer.
Then, I might play him a strong piece from a movie, maybe something by Morricone, maybe the shower scene from Psycho.
Half hour? I'd give him an enhanced alcoholic beverage, clamp some headphones on his head and let Jimi take over... a quick taste of Electric Ladyland and back down the wormhole he goes. Snap a few pics to document the occasion.
He might come back...
Indoor plumbing and daily bathing would be first on the list if I'm going to be spending much time with this composer.
Ha! You asked for it, OP. TGP doing what it does best.
Originally, I was going to go with a full day. That would give time to travel and teach quite a bit. The point of limiting the time to half an hour is so that you'd have to cram in as much as possible, and quite a bit would be left out. You'd have to really choose what you were going to share.
