Wolf Notes Issue Two Out Now

Issue Two of Compost And Height’s PDF zine Wolf Notes is now available for download. Wolf Notes describes itself as “an attempt at an open platform,” where “all and any degree of interpretation will fall within myriad rooms of disposition…Wolf Notes in its totality is hope to the impossibility of maximum openness.”

Issue Two includes Tick Mark Studies, a piece by Adam Sonderberg (American Hours With German Efficiency on Entr’acte) where Sonderberg attempts to record every snare drum hit on each track of the Ramones’s self-titled album, as a form of what he calls “active listening”. Also inside is a piece by Unnamed Music Festival curator Simon Reynell: Thoughts On Not Being A Musician, plus articles by sound artist Jeph Jerman, composer Michael Pisaro and artist and composer Jason Kahn.
