Fantastic architecture by Dick Higgins( Book )

32 editions published between 1919 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ART STYLES: C 1960 -. Compiled by Fluxus artists Wolf Vostell and Dick Higgins, and first published by Higgins' legendary Something Else Press in 1970, "Fantastic Architecture" anticipated the critiques launched by a new generation of visionary architects in the 1970s. In his introduction, Higgins argued that "architects have only just begun to escape from the drawing board mentality," and articulated the need for "creating space, which may or may not be functional, but which is "at least" relevant to the sensory environment in which we live. The economics of building has led to an aridity in our experience which is not consistent with the richness of our time." Against this, Higgins and Vostell advocate the approach of polymath artists such as Kurt Schwitters, Raoul Hausmann, Erich Buchholz, John Cage and Buckminster Fuller

Essential Cowell : selected writings on music by Henry Cowell( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents for the first time a generous selection from the more than 200 essays and articles written by one of the most original American composers and musical theorists of the twentieth century. There are articles on harmony, melody, notation and music history; essays on vocal innovation, folk music, and the intersection of music with other arts; reviews of concerts and recordings by contemporaries; notes on several of his own works, and several pieces on his life and experiences as a composer. As founder in 1925 of the New Music Society, he became a concert impresario for works by, among others, Carl Ruggles, Arnold Schoenberg, Charles Ives and Leo Ornstein; and publisher from 1927 to 1958 of New Music: A Quarterly of Musical Compositions. His many students included George Gershwin, John Cage, and Lou Harrison, but his interests extended beyond western classical traditions, and his radio program, ¿7FMusic of the World's Peoples," introduced a large audience to world music long before it was fashionable. Just as Cowell's groundbreaking book of 1930, New Musical Resources, continues to inspire successive generations of composers, Essential Cowell is key to understanding the origins and expanding dimensions of contemporary music
