Playlist • Microtonality and the Struggle for Fretlessness in the Digital Age





This playlist accompanies my article “Microtonality and the Struggle for Fretlessness in the Digital Age” that appeares in the CTM Festival 2019 magazine, published in Berlin Jan 2019 and distributed during the festival. 

Not all the recordings are available on streaming platforms, hence my choice to make a playlist and upload to mixcloud. 

Use the player above to listen. Tracklist below.
