The American Composers
Robert Cogan and Pozzi Escot:

Through this gateway you'll find information about their upcoming concerts and lectures and a complete catalog of their works, including Sonus, a journal of investigations into global music. Publication Contact International is the current publisher of all their books and music.

"Previous musical thinking and teaching must be reexamined. The task is to develop modes of understanding for the entire art of sound to create a framework within all music and so that the concepts that genuinely illuminate it might be brought together."
From the Preface to Sonic Design: The Nature of Sound and Music by Robert Cogan & Pozzi Escot
"Cogan's whirl…ds 1 is monumental in scale, a brain-jogging investigation into the sound of language.  The total result is raw power and tremendous variety in texture… a piece unto itself, very personal and original."
The New York Times
"Escot's Visione97, (listen here) work for mixed chorus, under the intense direction of its conductor created great colliding storm clouds of sound- this piece is short, but it is also an epic."
