Looking into the ideas of twentieth-century avant-garde composers Arnold Schoenberg and John Cage, The Wire contributor Adam Harper proposes a system for imagining music based on its capacity for variation, whilst redefining musical modernism and music itself in the process. By detailing not just how music is composed but crucially how it is perceived, Infinite Music maps the future of music and the many paths towards it.
