Surprised by Beauty: Complete William Duckworth Recordings on Spotify

I woke up this morning to the sad news that William Duckworth, my favorite composer discovered on Spotify, has passed away. Read Kyle Gann's obituary Strange Times here.


I made a Duckworth playlist one year ago, but kept it unpublished, as most of the composer's works are recorded by Lovely Music, which is not on Spotify. I even wrote to the label, and Mr. Duckworth to ask if they could make the music available. Unfortunately I didn't know about his heath condition at that time, otherwise I would write more about how his music opened my ears to a whole new genre. I also noticed a Coldplay song sounded suspiciously similar to one of the Time Curve Preludes, and Mr. Duckworth kindly retweeted it last August. It would be a great pleasure if my little discovery brought a smile to his face.

Hear his music in this Spotify playlist: William Duckworth - Complete Recordings on Spotify (54 tracks, total time: 3 hours). Ctrl (CMD) + G to browse in album view. For postminimalism, see my previous playlist.

Rest in peace.
