11:05 Relevant Tones - Composer Spotlight: Alvin Singleton

Critic Kyle Gann says “Singleton’s music is soulful, with an understated simplicity that I particularly prize. Despite the studied economy of his means and the set character of his images, the music is never cold … nor abstract. It glows with warmth.” We’ll feature Singleton’s music on our next Composer Spotlight.
