The second volume collecting the best of the popular online music journal Sound American in print!
Due to a surprisingly large demand, SA began printing their back issues in this collected format last year and almost immediately sold out of Volume 1! Now we're pleased to present Volume 2 which features the best articles, essays, and interviews from our issues originally presented in 2014:
SA4: The What Is Music Issue
featuring interviews with Canary Records' Ian Nagoski, archivist legend Dick Spottswood, a new interview with Corbett vs. Dempsey's John Corbett and More!
SA5: The Philadelphia Issue
featuring interviews with Philly free jazz legends Bobby Zankel and Elliott Levin, Jack Rose is Real by Chris Forsyth and More!
SA6: The Maker Issue
featuring an instrument by instrument celebration of Harry Partch, interview with Milwaukee instrument maker Hal Rammel, and new essay by Laetitia Sonami!
SA7: The Deep Listening Issue
featuring an interview with Pauline Oliveros, versions of her text pieces by Alessandro Bosetti, Megan Schubert, and Nick Hallett, and a new essay by Seth Cluett!
This beautiful trade paperback, designed by Federico Peñalva, is designed to be cherished and used. Our dream is to see beat up copies of this volume in coat pockets for years to come. Get yours now!
