It’s been a while since the last issue of ‘eartrip’, for which there can be no real excuse; but anyway, a couple of years into the project, we’re onto the fifth issue, and there’s still plenty to write and think about – so hopefully issue number six might be a little less slow in rolling out. There’s not really much need for me to write a big editorial: the words that follow should be able to stand up for themselves. Inside you’ll find the usual batch of reviews, including a lengthy examination of the debate-sparking collection, ‘Noise and Capitalism’, edited by the always-provocative Mattin, as well as an essay by Maggie Nicols addressing the relations between free improvisation and gender. And not forgetting, of course, the continuing adventures of Paul Desmond. Send bile and bouquets to firstname.lastname@example.org, or to the snail-mail address given inside the magazine.
