Selected and contextualized by composer Bill Dietz and historical musicologist Amy Cimini, these writings are drawn almost exclusively from previously unpublished archival materials, spanning excerpted scores, correspondence with the artists mentor and collaborator John Cage, grant proposals (too frequently, rejected), and notes from her self-guided research. Dramatically expanding the available literature on an influential yet little-known experimental composer and sound artist, this volume offers insight into the realist poetics and technical rigor of the artists work.

There are a number of portraits presented at Luhring Augustine in this tightly-curated survey of Auerbachs paintings and drawings, which also includes some of his relatively larger landscapes. Its a welcome opportunity to review up-close a number of mature works by an artist much more well known (as practically a national treasure, really) in his adoptive homeland in the UK.
