Faster Than a New York Minute

Perhaps digital culture is making life faster nowadays, because we’re near the end of a nine year decade. Not sure what happened to that extra year, but somewhere down the road there’ll be an eleven year decade and we can call it even. But in terms of naming this decade, it’s an easy call. These are “The Lost Years.” Think of all that has been lost . . .


I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
