Disappearing Moment is written by Brett Bonfield (he/him), a librarian, vegan, nocoiner, and social media ghost living in Cincinnati, OH, U.S.A.

It consists of a newsletter, which I publish on the last day of every month, and posts, which I publish on this website. It follows two maxims:

  1. Save the time of the reader (one of the Five Laws of Library Science established by S.R. Ranganathan)
  2. In music, as in everything, the disappearing moment of experience is the firmest reality (a quote by Benjamin Boretz)

Most newsletters have the following sections:

You can subscribe to the Disappearing Moment monthly newsletter via email or RSS. You may wish to read my newsletter archive before subscribing.

Posts cover topics that do not fit the newsletter format. You can read them on this website or subscribe to Posts via RSS.

I manage this website with Hugo. It features the Etch theme and the Atkinson Hyperlegible Font, and I host it on Sourcehut. I host my newsletter on Buttondown.
