The Spring 2020 issue explores musical identity in the global flow: composer Juro Kim Feliz interviews sound artist April Aliermo and composer Lieke van der Voort on how the departures in their artistic practices are shaping their soundworlds. Sound and visual artist Xuan Ye reveals the personal origins behind the synthesis of language, body, sound, and code that underlies her work. Australian composer and pianist Anthony Pateras discusses the motivations and methods behind his ambitious series of mostly collaborative albums. Discover rapper and producer Backxwash; multimedia producer and musician Curtis Running Rabbit-Lefthand; saxophonist, composer, and performance artist Erin Rogers; left-field, free-jazz rabble rousers FET.NAT; electronic instruments builder/performer Jen Kutler; and the prairie experimentalist grooves of Saw-whet Records! We’re excited to spotlight Brazilian composer Alex Buck, whose “Screaming Trees” won first place in our 2019 Electronic Music Composition Contest.
Music is helping many people get through hard times, and we hope this issue and CD will do that for readers with curious ears.
On the CD: 15 tracks of new and previously unreleased music from artists in the Spring 2020 issue
