What is Quarter Notes?

Quarter Notes is a bi-weekly newsletter by music writer Christopher Thiessen (DJBooth, Bandcamp, Consequence of Sound) focused on the reasons we make music, the ways we make music, and the ways in which listeners deeply connect to that music. Quarter Notes was initially created as a newsletter focused on music turning 25 years old, but in 2021, I’m widening that scope to take in the larger musical world and pull out the themes and lessons I’m learning as an avid listener.
