As I said in my first blog entry, the purpose of this blog is to entice people to send me information I’m looking for. It works beautifully. Publisher Joseph Zitt informs me that one can still order Robert Cogan’s and Pozzi Escot’s magnificent book Sonic Design privately from their web site, at http://www.sonicdesign.org/order_form_book.htm. There’s also a workbook to go with it, which I’d never seen. Maybe I’ll get to teach my Sonic Design class after all.
Zitt, of Metatron Press, also lusts to republish Cardew’s Stockhausen Serves Imperialism, warts and all. Our little Bard College library copy is about worn to a frazzle from me and my colleagues fighting over it. If you don’t know about the book, I wrote about it in my New Music Box article on political music, Making Marx in the Music.
