Title: Send a modern musician back in time to write or perform music of bygone days
Post by: Tova on 10 Nov 2016, 14:16
I wanted to flip around the topic Resurrect a Classical Composser and Pick a Modern Music Genre for Them (https://forums.questionablecontent.net/index.php/topic,33420.0.html)

Pick any music writer or performer who was active in the last 50 years, then pick a musical genre (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_musical_forms_by_era) from before that time that you think they might get into if they were sent back in a time machine.

As before: don't worry about giving any reasoning. Doesn't have to be from the link above.

Example: Amy Winehouse, comic opera (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Op%C3%A9ra_comique)

Miles Davis - late Baroque, preferably starting out as a student of J.S. Bach's (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Sebastian_Bach#Musical_style)

Reason: Miles 'inverted' in Jazz (Kind of Blue, So What?) the move from modal composition to four-part-harmony that Bach popularized during Baroque, so that alone is fitting. And Boy, would Mr. Cool have had a blast being there during Europe's most creative period in composition technique and music theory.

Jaco Pastorius (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaco_Pastorius) -  First Viennese School of Classic (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Viennese_School)

Bipolar musical genius with double-jointed thumbs and notoriety for over-playing - where else would one put Mr. Wait-this-is-supposed-to-be-an-accompanying-instrument? than right next to Wolfgang Amadeus?
