OM’s latest recording, Kyle Gann’s Hyperchromatica, receives an excellent review in Theater Jones, May 2018:

“…music based on intervals other than those you can get from the 12 equally-spaced notes on the piano needn’t be problematic. It could even be beautiful… Gann’s Hyperchromatica may be as close to divine as we get.”
