Dillon Ford has recently published "Mnemosyne and Apollo: The Role of Memory in Musical Creativity," which examines the "mnemophobic core" of modernism from a variety of perspectives.

Read "Mnemosyne and Apollo: The Role of Memory in Musical Creativity."

New Music Classics is pleased to announce the online publication of a full-length book for composers and anyone with a strong interest in music and the arts, aesthetics, criticism, cultural history, and creativity:

Orpheus in the Twenty-First Century: Historicism and the Art Music Renascence (First Edition).

Authored by Harvard-educated composer Dillon Ford, the entire text—more than 200 pages, including numerous full-color illustrations, musical examples, and MIDI files—is now available free of charge for public educational purposes at the following link:

Orpheus in the Twenty-First Century: Historicism and the Art Music Renascence

Whether your music is influenced by historical traditions just a little or a lot, there is likely to be something here to interest you. The face of "new music" is undergoing a profound transformation in which the presence of the past and a radically different understanding of creativity are playing seminal roles.

Thank you for visiting the New Music Classics web site!
