We recently caught up with Gregory W. Brown, the composer of FALL AND DECLINE on Navona Records.

Greg, who worked on the album with the esteemed vocal ensemble Variant 6, explores the connection between visual arts and music, his relationships with the poets who crafted some of the album’s lyrics, electronic manipulation, and art’s role in sustaining a humanity in decline.
