This hour, we're diving deep into the strange, beautiful world of modern music composition.

The Producer
By Alex Overington, Meade Bernard, John Hanrahan and Nadia Sirota for WXQR's Meet the Composer (2017)
Staff paper and key signatures are great for concertos and sonatas, but the composers in this story don’t think that way… in fact most of them aren’t even sure they should be called composers at all. That includes producer Alex Overington who takes us on a road trip to unravel the creative process of those who write without a score.

This episode of Re:sound was produced by Dennis Funk.

Music for Re:sound is provided by Patient Sounds, a private-press record label and book publisher in Chicago.
