Contemporary music in the UK and Ireland is crying out for a journal like “Sounds Like Now’ and Dan Goren is the perfect person to make it happen. For a decade and a half Dan has been an unsung hero of new music in this country. I have no doubt that this new journal will reflect Dan’s dynamism, open-mindedness and insight, and will be pivotal in creating an open space for performers, composers and everyone interested in new music to come together.

JOE CUTLER – Composer

We are fortunate indeed in the UK to have a thriving contemporary music scene, brimming with talent and innovation, with composers and performers who excel in their art. The advent of a magazine which champions this work can only be applauded by the community of those who create, perform and hear this music. NMC relishes the opportunity of working with Sounds Like Now to share our work, and to learn from others who are as passionate and committed to contemporary classical music as we are.

ANNE RUSHTON – Executive Director NMC Recordings

Sounds Like Now has real potential to further enrich the already vibrant world of contemporary music and facilitate new connections between composers and performers; we are delighted to be supporting it.
