Our massive annual survey of the last 12 months of underground/outsider music activity, including the 50 records of the year, 50 archive releases of the year and specialist genre charts covering all bases from Avant Rock to Outer Limits. Plus our crack team of critics and contributors, as well as some of 2011's most active and high-flying musicians, give us their takes on the highs and lows of the cultural year. Features: Kouhei Matsunaga (Clive Bell meets the German born conceptual composer who treats scores as standalone artworks); Collateral Damage: Claudia Molitor (Philip Clark meets the German born conceptual composer who treats scores as standalone artworks); Gonjasufi (Dan Barrow enjoys a sun salutation and enters the wormhole with Warp's conscious beatmaker); Invisible Jukebox: Michael Chapman (The veteran folk guitarist and improviser becomes a fully qualified survivor of The Wire's mystery record selection); Spencer Clark/James Ferraro (The ex-Skaters talk about their separate Fourth World and Far Side Virtual second lives). Global Ear: Brisbane (Daniel Spencer gatecrashes the house hows, pub gigs and bedroom blowouts of Queensland's capital city); Epiphanies (Adam Harper on the transformative potential of Cornelius Cardew's Treatise graphic score)."
