Groundbreaking Contemporary Music and Sonic Art
Science and technology have changed our understanding of sound and music. For decades, Leonardo Music Journal has documented the ways in which science and technology became relevant to contemporary composers and sound artists, including those who developed new multimedia art forms that combined sound with other media and interactive technologies. Contributors to the journal include such influencers of our time as Philip Glass, David Byrne, John Cage, Pauline Oliveros, Alvin Lucier, and more.
Published by MIT Press, LMJ has for 30 years been the companion annual journal to Leonardo. Beginning in 2021, we will elevate the visibility of music and sound art with yearlong inclusion in Leonardo journal, retiring LMJ as a separate publication after Volume 30, December 2020. We thank every artist, writer, staff editor, guest editor, editorial board member, peer reviewer, researcher, academic and curator who contributed to 30 successful years of LMJ.
We celebrate this great body of work and invite you to experience multidimensional music and sound art from hundreds of authors worldwide.
