Métier Releases New Joshua Fineberg Album Sonic Fictions


American composer Joshua Fineberg has a new album out on Métier entitled Sonic Fictions. It features four compositions that he wrote between 2008 and 2016. These compositions are said to focus on a different aspect of composition than his typical fare: the "Sonic Fiction". Sonic Fictions are "a complex concept" that "stresses the abstract music as creating its own ‘fiction’ story and world–perhaps the antithesis of impressionism and program music."

The album is currently available for purchase digitally and on CD via the label's website hereSonic Fictions is also streaming on Spotify here.
