Nothing but the Music

By Thulani Davis. Foreword by Jessica Hagedorn. Introduction by Tobi Haslett.

Written between 1974 and 1985, these are Davis’ most anthologized works. Featured musicians and dancers include Cecil Taylor, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Bad Brains, Henry Threadgill, Thelonious Monk, the Revolutionary Ensemble, the Commodores, Ishmael Houston-Jones and many more, in performances at historic venues such as the Five Spot, the Village Vanguard and the Apollo.

Nothing but the Music is further proof of Davis’ place as a crucial figure, alongside poets Jayne Cortez, Sonia Sanchez and Ntozake Shange, in the cultural landscape surrounding the Black Arts Movement.

Thulani Davis (born 1949) is the author of the novels 1959 and Maker of Saints, . . . .go to book page >>

Edited by Bill Dietz & Amy Cimini. Text by Maryanne Amacher. Interviews by Jeffrey Bartone, Elliot Handelman, Frank J. Oteri, Keiko Prince, Barbara Golden, Amy Cimini, Bill Dietz, Kabir Carter.

Maryanne Amacher (1938-2009) was a composer of large-scale fixed-duration sound installations and a highly original thinker in the areas of perception, sound spatialization and aural architecture. She is frequently cited as a pioneer of what has come to be called sound art,” although her thought and work challenges assumptions about the limitations of that genre.

Maryanne Amacher: Selected Writings and Interviews represents the first ever book-length collection devoted to the composer, whose life and work are as vast as they are as yet unknown. From personal notes and letters to program notes, manifestos and unrealized project proposals, the documents are framed . . . .go to book page >>
