[Editor's Message from this issue of the journal, 18.1]<br>Dear MTO readers,<br>Spring Greetings! I am pleased to announce the publication of Music Theory Online 18.1, a special issue on the analysis of performance with an introduction by Nicholas Cook. Contributors approach performance with empirical and non-empirical methods; with computer-aided analysis and close listening; with studies of individual performances and performance corpora; with consideration of interacting sonic and visual effects, cognition, pedagogy, aesthetics, ontology, and the history of recorded performance. Readers will find MTO’s multimedia capabilities in full use; articles include recordings, video, and graphs with flash animation. This special issue on the analysis of performance was the brainchild of Peter Martens with encouragement from Matthew Shaftel (my predecessor); it has been my pleasure to work with Peter and all the authors in bringing it forth.
