The NMC Music Map

Here's how it works: click on a composer's name and the Music Map launches in full-screen with a list of composers whom the composer influenced and those who were influenced by. Click on more composer names to see the map develop with much visual awesomeness featuring clips of recordings from the NMC catalog.

About NMC recordings:
Established with the aim of recording the best of contemporary British music to the highest artistic and technical standards, NMC Recordings – which celebrated the 20th anniversary of its first release in 2009 – was founded in 1988 with funding from the Holst Foundation and assistance from the Society for the Promotion of New Music. Following the success of two pilot releases the following year – Jonathan Harvey's Bhakti, and a disc of contemporary piano music performed by composer Michael Finnissy – NMC became an independent registered charity; it has since established itself as "Britain's most important producer of CDs of interesting new or recent and neglected work from this country" (The Sunday Times).
