A Letter on Incantations

 

cover photograph by Lizzy Snaps Sullivan

 

Our fifth issue is “Incantations”, or the music issue.  We are at a point in history where a recording studio can exist in a laptop and worldwide distribution can take place within seconds of finishing a song.  Regardless of the power of this technology, behind every song there is still a human element. This includes the composers, performers, and an audience.
