I don’t entirely blame composers as it was a new frontier where we could have all our parts perfectly in time, with no distortion. And […]

Witches!: The Absolutely True Tale of Disaster in Salem by Rosalyn Schanzer plays out in vivid detail. Instead of simply taking passages from historical documents, Schanzer instead quotes them as dialogue, creating powerful images.

He never imagined traipsing around war-torn London, solving ciphers, practicing surveillance, and searching for a traitor to the Allied forces. He certainly never expected that a strong-willed American girl named Eleanor would play Watson to his Holmes (or […]

Hypnos is the sound of tension, a spiderweb of stretched strings that hum, vibrate, and rattle. This is not to say that Greek artist Savvas Metaxas’ palette was limited to just materials commonly thought of as tensile; instead, he sculpts straining, groaning structures from modular synth and and processed percussion samples to complement the restless scratches […]
