Meet-a-Composer Roulette

In idle moments -- of which you may correctly suspect I've far too many -- why not get acquainted with an unfamiliar composer?

Here's one way: go to and choose a name at random from the right-hand column. If the name selected is familiar, reload the page, and try again.

Here's another way: go to the birthday page at the American Music Cartel Center's New Music AlmsTinderSnuffBox and choose one of today's birthday children, or enter a favorite or random date and see who turns up.

(Note: the NMB's birthday list is limited to US composers (and even then, at least one day in September is deficient by at least one expatriate Californian.))

Today I got to learn a bit about: Alexandra Gardner and Ludmila Ulehla.
