Take a soak in the musical seas of Warren Burt, who has been an avid pioneer in microtonality and electronics for nearly half a century! Stories of his personal journey into a passionate curiosity for tuning; discussion of the use of algorithmic processes in composition; ruminations on technology; mysteries of lost gear; and more.
