Leonardo Music Journal (LMJ) was for 30 years the annual companion journal to Leonardo. LMJ was devoted to aesthetic and technical issues in contemporary music and the sonic arts. Each issue featured artists and writers from around the world, representing a wide range of stylistic viewpoints. Recent issues covered improvisation, musical communities, live performance in the digital age, and the politics of sound art. Each volume included the latest offering from the LMJ audio series—an exciting sampling of works chosen by a guest curator and accompanied by notes from the composers and performers.
