Try Saying You’re Alive!: Kazuki Tomokawa in His Own Words

By Kazuki Tomokawa. Translated with introduction by Daniel Joseph. Introduction by Damon Krukowski.

Tokyo in the 1970s was a magnet for young musicians, poets and painters. Among them was Kazuki Tomokawa, a prolific singer-songwriter from Japan’s northern provinces, whose guttural vocals and incisive lyrics earned him the unofficial title of screaming philosopher.”
The stories in this memoir—originally published in 2015 in Japan and now appearing as the first English translation of Tomokawa’s writing—are told with a rambler’s wit and wisdom, bringing together his memorable reflections on six decades of day labor, drinking, gambling, acting, singing and writing. Figures such as Kan Mikami, Nobuyoshi Araki and Sh?ji Terayama drift through this down-and-out vagabond’s memoir, which . . . .go to book page >>

Partners: A Biography of Jerry Hunt

By Stephen Housewright.

Jerry Hunt (1943–93) was among the most eccentric figures in the word of new music. A frenetic orator, occultist and engineering consultant, his works from the 1970s through the early 90s made use of readymade sculptures, medical technology, arcane talismans and all manner of homemade electronic implements to form confrontational recordings and enigmatic, powerful performances.
Tracing Hunt’s life across his home state’s major cities to a self-built house in rural Van Zandt County, this memoir-cum-biography by Stephen Housewright, Hunt’s partner of 35 years, offers illuminating depictions of Hunt’s important installations and performances across North America and Europe. Housewright narrates a lifetime . . . .go to book page >>

Transmissions from the Pleroma

Edited by Lawrence Kumpf, Tyler Maxin. Text by Karen Finley, Shelley Hirsch, George E. Lewis, Gordon Monahan, Kris Paulsen, David Rosenbloom.

Jerry Hunt (1943–93) is sometimes described as a shamanic figure with the look of a Central Texas meat inspector.” One of the most compelling composers in the word of late 20th-century new music, he made work that combined video synthesis, installation art and early computers with rough-hewn sculptures, scores drawn from celestial alphabets and homemade electronics activated by his signature wands and impassioned gestures. Hunt lived his entire life in Texas, between Dallas, Waco, Houston and Austin, eventually settling in a house he built himself (\ an interactive environment\ ) on a ranch in Canton, but his pataphysical, abrasive and humorous performances . . . .go to book page >>
