Abstract:

"Termed "America's most indefatigable experimental poet" by Publishers Weekly, Jackson Mac Low (1922-2004) was recognized internationally as a master innovator for nearly five decades. Doings: Assorted Performance Pieces 1955-2002 presents a comprehensive collection of the poet's handwritten, drawn, typographic, and musical notations--works composed through non-intentional methods and which operate simultaneously as visual art, literature, and scores for performance. The book includes detailed performance instructions as well as notes on the specific procedures of composition through which the works were created. The curious reader finally has access to some of the most important yet most elusive works within Mac Low's oeuvre, including many examples of the "Gathas," "Vocabularies," "Asymmetries," "Light Poems" and more. Doings performs the dual task of sourcebook and Baedeker, a looking glass through which to see both where we've been and where we're going as we sift through the radical poetries of the postmodern era looking for renewal, for the inevitable path to the future."--Publisher's website.

Performance scores written, drawn, and composed over 47 years are accompanied by instructions and commentary.
