Noise Media Language (+ CD)

Yasunao Tone - Noise Media Language (+ CD)
This indispensable monograph catalogues the artist's career through documentation of seminal projects, including a CD of works ranging from early performance experiments to current digital projects.
A pioneer since the early 60s in sound art and digital composition, Yasunao Tone (born 1935 in Tokyo) has composed for Merce Cunningham (alongside John Cage) and been a member of the groups Ongaku, Hi-Red Center, and Fluxus. He is unabashedly avant-garde and continues today to engage questions of noise, language, and systems of representation.
Texts by Robert Ashley, Dasha Dekleva, Federico Marulanda, William Marotti, Hans Ulrich Obrist.
