Words Without Music, by Philip Glass

Review by Richard Fairman
A straight-talking autobiography that explores the milieu behind the composers minimalist music

SNIP ! :

Anyone who knows Glasss music will recognise it as quintessentially American. Glass himself makes that very point and is even more specific about where his music found its roots. A revealing early snapshot finds him, now in his twenties, in Yoko Onos New York loft apartment, watching as the minimalist artist and composer La Monte Young showed what he could do with a pendulum, a pointer and a piece of chalk.
