Deaths / Obituaries : Ben Johnston, microtonal composer, has passed away. 

It is with a heavy heart that I write that Ben Johnston passed away today at the age of 93. Ben was a composer of music, theorist, academician, author, mentor, and personally speaking—a dear friend.

He will be missed, but his legacy will live on.
