Microtonal MP3

The Other Minds catalog of free listening at the Internet Archive, aka archive.org, now includes a fascinating interview with Russian-born microtonal composer Ivan Wyschnegradsky (1893-1979), in discussion with OM guru Charles Amirkhanian. It was recorded in Wyschnegradsky’s Paris home in early 1976. There isn’t much music, though toward the end he plays examples on his alternately tuned piano (MP3).
