Join us for an episode featuring Johnny Reinhard, legendary bassoonist and head of the American Festival of Microtonal Music. We shoot the breeze, discuss 128 tuning, and talk about microtonal performance and practice on the bassoon. Other topics include polymicrotonality, improvisation, and playing technique. His latest work in 128-note tuning, “String Theory,” will be coming out soon!
