Get it while it’s hot! Alan Licht’s 592-page interview compendium, ‘Common Tones,’ is new from Blank Forms!

For anyone interested in avant-garde music, art or performance, Blank Forms’ super-generous new release, Common Tones: Selected Interviews with Artists and Musicians 1995–2020 is intellectual gold. Collecting guitarist, sound artist and writer Alan Licht’s mostly never-before-published interviews, public exchanges and dialogues with everyone from ANOHNI to Tony Conrad, Richard Foreman, Milford Graves, Jutta Koether, Christian Marclay, Lou Reed, Suicide and Greg Tate—among many others—this is a deeply satisfying “unearthing of both personal and intellectual histories,” according to Jay Sanders, who contributes the Introduction. “In these interviews,” he concludes, “I hear Alan’s tough-minded on-the-ground enthusiasm and generosity of detail opening what might otherwise be private conversations among practitioners—revealing real contexts, motivations and affinities directly to his readers.”
