I recently came across a book at my local alt. bookstore, bought it and
been enjoying it so I thought it worth a mention.
The book is:
Audio Culture: Readings in Modern Music
edited by Cox & Warner
paperback 454 pgs.
It is an anthology of short writings by a variety of contributors: John
Brian Eno, Pauline Oliveros, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Glenn Gould, Chris
and many more.
Organized into 2 main parts, Theory and Practice, the subsections include:
Music and Its Others: Noise, Sound, Silence
Modes of Listening
Short bursts of ideas, concepts, opinions and perspectives that permit
jumping around of topic, provoking thoughts and possibilities.
Starting points and stepping stones, I am fond of these sorts of
compilations, great for picking up and putting down at random moments.
