Walter Zimmermann: Desert Plants

Conversations with 23 American Musicians

Reprint of the 1976 edition with the original recordings on CD
376 pages

"Desert Plants" was a cult book in the seventies because it brought the first information about the US-American composer-performer scene to Europe. Numerous examples of sheet music and entire scores enrich this insight into a time of experimentation, which now needs to be brought back to consciousness. A CD is enclosed with the edition, which makes all surviving sound documents accessible in restored form as mp3 files. Thus the original voices from 1975 can be heard - a contemporary document.
Walter Zimmermann's discussion partners are Morton Feldman, Christian Wolff, John Cage, Philip Corner, Jim Burton, Phil Glass, Steve Reich, Robert Ashley, Alvin Lucier, Joan La Barbara, Pauline Oliveros, David Rosenboom, Richard Teitelbaum, Larry Austin, James Tenney, J. B. Floyd (about Conlon Nancarrow), La Monte Young, Charlemagne Palestine, Charles Morrow, Garrett List, John Mc Guire and Ben Johnston (about Harry Partch).
