'Nyman's book remains a privileged window into that strange world, and its republication will be a boon to a new generation.' BBC Music Magazine
'… a welcome reissue of the book … Above all, Experimental Music is a useful source book for a period of radicalism in musical practice in which the rule was to break the rules.' Music Teacher
Composer Michael Nyman's classic 1974 account of postwar experimental music. He traces the revolutionary attitudes developed by composers such as John Cage towards concepts of time, space, sound, and composer/performer responsibility within a tradition that also bore the seeds of musical minimalism. New edition includes an introduction by Brian Eno, an up-to-date discography by Robert Worby and an historical overview by Michael Nyman.
