Notes & Reviews:

Nommos Visiting is an electronic work based in speculative fiction, written in 1979 by American composer Craig Leon. It was inspired by a 1970s New York exhibition devoted to the art of the Dogon people of Mali. The Dogon are renowned for their cosmogony and for their sculptures evoking their religious beliefs, received from extraterrestrial visitors, known as the Nommos, a group of amphibian humanoids who came to them from the region of the double star Sirius. Leon explains, "It was an attempt to imagine the music that the Nommos brought with them to Earth from their home planet, thereby influencing the development of our own music."
