Broken Music (softcover edition with flexi disc)
Broken Music is an essential guide and discography for recordings and audio works by visual artists, originally published in 1989 and edited by Ursula Block (founder of Gelbe Musik in Berlin) and Michael Glasmeier. Records chosen for the publication revolved around four criteria: record covers created as original work by visual artists; record or sound producing objects (sculptures); books and publications that contain a record or recorded media object; and records or recorded media that have sound by visual artists. Hundreds of works are documented by artists such as Joseph Beuys, Laurie Anderson, Guillaume Apollinaire, Karel Appel, Antonin Artaud, John Baldessari, Hugo Ball, Harry Bertoia, William S. Burroughs, John Cage, Henri Chopin, Philip Corner, Merce Cunningham, Jean Dubuffet, Marcel Duchamp, R. Buckminster Fuller, Allen Ginsberg, Philip Glass, Bernard Heidsieck, Isidore Isou, Allan Kaprow, Martin Kippenberger, Milan Knízák, Christina Kubisch, Laibach, John Lennon, Hermann Nitsch, Yoko Ono, Dennis Oppenheim, Nam June Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, The Red Crayola, Dieter Roth, Conrad Schnitzler, Kurt Schwitters, Richard Serra, Michael Snow, Jean Tinguely, Yoshi Wada, and William Wegman, among others. Book comes with a flexi disc of the Arditti String Quartet performing Milan Knizak's Broken Music.
