What’s the Matter with Today’s Experimental Music?: Organized Sound Too Rarely Heard

Leigh Landy

A study of contemporary music based on the premise that it is suffering from a distinct lack of attention. It inspects and evaluates what is happening to musical experimentation, where things might have gone wrong and what can be done to resolve the problem. Today a composer’s newest creation is not always eagerly anticipated and the composer is lucky to have his work performed at all. The book is concerned, therefore, with the dispersion of today’s experimental compositions.
