Ben Chatwin ~ Altered Signals

One of the great experiments of the past few years continues as Ben Chatwin pours his music into yet another container.  The process began with Staccato Signals in 2018, as the artist invited a string quartet to participate in the compositional process.  After a

ACL 2018 ~ Top Ten Modern Composition

When averaged, the Modern Composition category included not the most submissions, but the best.  We wish we could make this a list of 20, but then we’d have to double every list, and not every category features this many excellent releases in a given year.
