Review: Experimental Music: Cage and Beyond

User Review  - Brian - Goodreads

This book was okay. I like a lot of the music related to the movements discussed. Some of the aleatoric musical games discussed were really cool. Overall though this was not a book that I felt driven to finish (though I did do so). I dunno, it just wasn't anything special. Read full review
