Alistair Riddell is primarily known for his study and involvement in contemporary music. This has encompassed many activities and associations with other musical practitioners and thinkers for over four decades. Details can be found in numerous sources and publications in his CV.
After a long association with academia and academic music, Alistair’s interests have diversified in an attempt to make sense of this time of creative potential in comparison to that of several decades ago. It would seem, given media interest and promotion, that anything is possible, so the questions are, is it and what does that mean? Through the luxury of time, albeit less than it used to be, contemplation of anything that strays into this field of interest can now be considered. And there seems to be an ever-greater amount of material drifting around to occupy his time.
