Lou Harrison is a well-known American composer whose many interests include world music, just intonation, gamelan construction, theory, and poetry. A precocious musician, Harrison was an innovator during the 1930s and 1940s with his compositions for dance and percussion and his study of Charles Ives's music. Instead of working with circuits and soldering tools, he and Bill Colvig used thin wall electrical conduit and aluminum furniture tubing to make their gamelan instruments. The book is written for readers of varying musical backgrounds. It includes a chronology, catalog, discography, and extensive bibliography. Those interested in studying and performing Harrison's music will find the book helpful in explaining his use of just intonation. Many examples document the musical analyses.

Ben Johnston is an American composer internationally known for his work with extended just intonation.

For a long time Johnston worked in isolation; few people understood why someone would want to change the standard pitch system. But gradually, as his music began to be heard, e...

Sounding Out: Pauline Oliveros and Lesbian Musicality examines the musical career of the avant-garde composer, accordionist, whose radical innovations of the 1960s, 70s and 80s have redefined the aesthetic and formal parameters of American experimental music. While other scholars have studied Oliveros as a disciple of John Cage and a contemporary of composers Terry Riley, Lou Harrison, Gordon Mumma, and Robert Ashley, Sounding Out resituates Pauline Oliveros in a gynecentric network of feminist activists, writers, artists and musicians. This book shows how the women in Oliveros’s life were central sources of creative energy and exchange during a crucial moment in feminist and queer cultura...
