We celebrate Larry Austin's career with an important publication.
Borik Press is pleased to announce the publication of
Larry Austin: Life and Works of an Experimental Composer by Thomas Clark.
For over fifty years, composer Larry Austin has redefined what music is and could be through his experimental compositions. Working with hybrid musics, improvisation, and computer music, Austin has created a wonderful and unique sound world. Austin had important associations with John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Leonard Bernstein and others. He co-founded and served as editor of the journal, Source: Music of the Avant Garde. He is also well known for his completion/realization of Charles Ives' Universe Symphony. In this compact study of Austin's work, composer and theorist Thomas Clark introduces Austin’s life and times, and then provides important insights into the musical techniques, structures, and complex meanings Larry Austin has created in his music.
Author Thomas Clark earned a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Michigan where he studied with Leslie Bassett. He taught and served as Associate Dean at the University of North Texas, Dean at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and is currently Director of the School of Music at Texas State University–San Marcos.
