Tom Johnson
The Voice of New Music
This drawing comes from the very interesting book The Voice of New Music by the American composer Tom Johnson. Published by the Apollohuis, Eindhoven, in 1989 it brings together texts, which Tom Johnson has written for the Village Voice in New York during the years 1972 until 1982. A digital version of the book could be downloaded from the web.
"Tom Johnson recorded the emergence of a generation of composers and musicians which has set out to probe once more all conventions of the Western musical tradition and to remove the barriers between different cultures and various artistic disciplines. That process is still in full swing. Therefore it is of interest today to read how that process was triggered." (Paul Panhuysen, Editor)
