A displaced Californian composer writes about music made for the long while & the world around that music. ~ The avant-garde is flexibility of mind. — John Cage ~ ...composition is only a very small thing, taken as a part of music as a whole, and it really shouldn't be separated from music making in general. — Douglas Leedy ~ My God, what has sound got to do with music! — Charles Ives

It's that time again
Yes, It's once again time to play Name the Next New Music Box Cover Person. Each month -- as you know too well -- the New Music Box, the internet organ of the American Music
Cartel Center features a video interview with a new music personality (and sometimes a small gaggle of them). My guesses have had a bad track record (although my wishes are even further off). Of late, there have been a conductor, members of a new music ensemble, and two composers, one junior, one senior. I predict that the next interviewee will be a critic; it ought to be our senior active critic, Alan Rich (someone, do a serious video interview with Rich now!) but -- it's the AMC, after all -- it's much more likely to be a New Yorker, so I'll guess Alex Ross. What's your best guess -- no NMB insiders allowed -- the winner gets a gift certificate for a Buñueloni at the Cedar Tavern, should it ever reopen.
