From the Publisher
"Presenting Christian Wolff as a quintessential American musical maverick, Michael Hicks and Christian Asplund compellingly argue that Wolff's stature will continue to grow as the historical dust settles. This book is beautifully written and aptly synthesizes discussions of specific works, details about Wolff's life, and the broader context within which he works."
--David W. Bernstein, author of The San Francisco Tape Music Center: 1960s Counterculture and the Avant-Garde
"Insightful and alert. . . . This book serves as a neat little primer for [Wolff's] work."--The Wire
Despite the fact that Wolff is listed in every music history textbook as a member of the so-called New York School alongside John Cage, Morton Feldman, and Earle Brown, he has received relatively little scholarly attention. Hicks and Asplund have made a significant effort to balance the scales with this excellent narrative."-- Notes
