Just in today: the Crowdfunder campaign to launch Sounds Like Now has been granted an extra two weeks to reach its target of £18,000. With 296 backers at the time of writing, the campaign is just over four-fifths of the way to its target; just a few dozen or so more backers could see it over the finish line, and see production begin on the UK’s first dedicated magazine for modern composition. If you think that the performance, creation and critique of contemporary music needs a more public profile, then this is the time to put your money where your mouth is. Make your pledge here.
Several new items have been offered for those who want to pledge, including signed CDs, a signed manuscript page from Michael Finnissy’s renowned Red Earth, and a full-board place on the COMA summer school for half price.
