‘Overcoming form’ book out on University of Huddersfield Press

Overcoming formDr Richard Glover and Dr Bryn Harrison have published their book Overcoming Form: Reflections on Immersive Listening with the University of Huddersfield Press. The book of essays  investigates four areas of immersive sound environments: repetition, sustained tones, performed installations and approaches to extended forms, focusing in particular on the music of Morton Feldman, Eliane Radigue, James Tenney and Phill Niblock. Through in depth exploration of the experiential nature of these subjects, the authors offer reflections upon the materials used for these environments, how they are organized, and the consequences of this on how we listen.
