Readers and friends,
It’s been a fun ride. Effective immediately, bagatellen is permanently closing shop. What started as a joint music blog in early 2003 quickly grew into a community, so it’s saddening to have to put it to rest. Looking back over the archives in recent months, it’s been amazing to consider the wealth of content and information in these pages. Nobody’s crazy about the idea of letting it bleed out, so Derek and I have decided to maintain the pages at this address until, well, for a long time.
Comments (and registration to do so) will remain open unless policing becomes a necessity. No reason not to retain that function at this point.
Finally, I want to extend a huge thanks to the contributors over the year, whose dedication, patience, and friendship have been immense.

and to all the musicians who made “listen” such a rewarding and stimulating project.
