This article explores the way that the performance of temporal processes in recent contemporary music reveals something about the nature of musical time. Process music deals with time as a part of its material, offering the opportunity to experience time as time: the expression and experience of units of time that are defined by, and enclose, processes, in works whose forms are defined by their durations. The nature of time in four examples, by Alistair Zaldua, Mathias Spahlinger, Steve Gisby, and Sophie Stone, is discussed with reference to theories of time by Jonathan D. Kramer and Henri Bergson.
