A bonus episode before Season 2 launches on March 23!
And we’re back! Well, kind of. Season 2 of Sound Expertise launches on March 23, but for now here’s a bonus preseason episode. Our intrepid producer, D. Edward Davis, interviews host Will Robin (University of Maryland) about his book “Industry: Bang on a Can and New Music in the Marketplace,” out with Oxford University Press next week. We talk about the role of the festival Bang on a Can in shaping the broader world of new music, the institutions and politics of contemporary classical in the ’80s and ’90s, research methods, and more! And stick around until the end of the episode to hear a teaser for Season 2!
