I’m really happy to personally announce the release of Sound American 6: The New/Rediscovered Instruments Issue at www.soundamerican.org
Exploring those artists that choose to articulate their musical concept by choosing to engage with musical instruments of their own making, creating a new musical language and syntax full of personal meaning outside of the conventions of Western music making!
This issue features:
Harry Partch: The Iconoclast and His Instruments (featuring newly available photos from the Partch archive)
New York pianist, builder, and free jazz elder Cooper-Moore
Baltimore machinist and New American Weirdo Neil Feather
Wisconsin based improvisor and creator of elegant wooden instruments Hal Rammel
How to Hack a CD Player and Five Questions by Nicolas Collins
And much more!
