Better Know a Composer: Samuel Burt
Better Know a Composer is a feature that will present readers with music & musicians whose work may be inaccessible, or simply unexposed to them. It is an attempt to both humanize the work and illuminate the personality of the responsible party.
Samuel Burt is today's subject. In a nutshell – the inspiration for his first ever composition was spaceships, Tim Smith of the Baltimore Sun succinctly describes his music as cool, and he sets Donald Rumsfeld's press conferences to music.
