We are very happy to be back with the 18th issue of KunstMusik. It
took us a while to produce this new number, but, as you know: haste makes
waste. Since we changed our modus operandi from having a regular editor-in-chief
to asking a different guest curator to supervise each issue, our
workload and responsibility for finding the right one have increased.
We asked the curator of the last two issues (No. 16 & No. 17 – about intonation),
the Canadian-German composer Marc Sabat, to recommend his own successor to us,
and Marc suggested Lucie Vítková. She is a composer, improviser and performer
from the Czech Republic, living in New York - we were really excited
about this choice.
And here we are with issue No. 18, curated by Lucie Vítková. This
edition does not discuss a specific musicological subject, but, rather,
gives some genuinely stimulating insights into some of the most current
developments in New York’s experimental music scene. In this issue of
KunstMusik, we have women, transgender and femme authors of various
backgrounds. Their perspective is refreshing, incisive and exciting.
We hope you are as thrilled as we are !
