new in psf: on makoto nomura’s root music

In the new issue of Perfect Sound Forever, I have a piece on composer Makoto Nomura’s Root Music–its concept, execution, aesthetic, and what it’s like to realize it. (My recording of one version of the piece can be heard here. That performance is part of a current project of recording works for solo double bass by contemporary experimental composers.)
