Margins of Music – Music/Sound

Fourth Door Review's Music section explores new musics connections to environment, technology, making and design in ways no other music review or magazine does.

Our pioneering approach encompasses music's overlap with the natural world, making music in the real and the virtual worlds, sound-sculptures in the built environment, greening music's performance and recording spaces, and new and old instrument making.
