Composers Forum is a daily web log that allows invited contemporary composers to share their thoughts and ideas on any topic that interests them--from the ethereal, like how new music gets created, music history, theory, performance, other composers, alive or dead, to the mundane, like getting works played and recorded and the joys of teaching. If you're a professional composer and would like to participate, send us an e-mail.

There are lots of readers in NYC right? After a search of S21 I was surprised to find that no one has ever really talked about Zorn's (still relatively) new space. What's going on? Is it that far off the radar?
Are "composers" really that separated from the New York improv scene? Have people been going to shows there? What do you think? Etc.?
