Nolan Gasser is a composer, pianist, author, and musicologist—most notably, the architect of Pandora Radio’s Music Genome Project. His original works include the musical Benny & Joon(Paper Mill), the opera Secret Garden(SF Opera), and the orchestral works Cosmic Reflection(Baltimore Symphony) and the World Concerto(cellist Maya Beiser). Nolan’s recentbook is Why You Like It: The Science and Culture of Musical Taste(Macmillan, 2019)—called “a work of staggeringerudition and breadth” by The Economist.
