Composers, artists and writers from Alvin Lucier and Charles Curtis to Claudia La Rocco and James Fei discuss the lineages and politics of Minimalist music
Focusing on “phase shifting” in music (i.e. where two or more versions of a sound or motif are played simultaneously but slightly out of sync), particularly as it relates to artists whose practices run from the 1960s into the present, Marfa Sounding gathers writers, composers, sound theorists, art critics, dance historians, filmmakers, students, curators and archivists thinking through the intersection of music, Minimalism and the political.

Authors include: James Fei, Jennifer Burris, Erik DeLuca, Ida Soulard, Maria Chávez, Janice Ross, Wendy Vogel and Claudia La Rocco.
Conversations include: Andrew Abrahams with Cate Cole Schrim and Ian Lewis; Amma Ateria with Caitlin Murray; Jad Atoui with Claire Amiot; and Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe with Anthony Elms.
