The lively stories in the Spring 2019 issue are sure to spark conversations about the diverse ways people develop creative ideas and potential. Monica Pearce visits Linda Catlin Smith, her former composition teacher, for an intimate conversation about her artistic process and passions; Ian Crutchley tracks the path of sonic experiments taken by Texas-born Scott Smallwood, who brings fresh perspectives to his students; and Alexander Varty dives into “the real stuff” with 77-year-old trumpeter, innovator, collaborator, and educator Wadada Leo Smith. Dominique Fils-Aimé (on the Spring 2019 cover) has moved from the mainstream spotlight to a more intimate creative space where many genres unite. Composer Samuel Andreyev has been guided by intuition through his unusual artistic journey. Camae Ayewa and Carmel Farabakhsh explore their relationship through the installation/performance Pleasure Calls. Meet U.K. Manuella Blackburn—first-place winner of our 2018 Electronic Music Composition Contest! Learn how a community arts space spawned the adventurous HAVN Records.
