past, present, future

Sorry for all the extended, unexplained silences! I’ve been writing a book: Experimental Music Since 1970. It should be out on August 11th. In the meantime, I plan to make much better use of this space. There are resource guides to post, interviews to conduct, recordings to respond to, books to review, events to announce, and more.

  1. The book looks amazing! I put in a order for it at the Huddersfield library (where I study/work). Especially excited that, to paraphrase the write up, it doesn’t treat experimentalism as a historical event. I really appreciate the Nyman book, but unfortunately the perspective that experimentalism is/was a historical event is all too common. This also seems to lend itself to composers and musicians who want to further more conservative approaches by compartmentalizing experimental practice while simultaneously marginalizing a lot of musicians not centered on the w.classical tradition or working within academic musical contexts. Excited to read it!
