Experimental music : Cage and beyond by Michael Nyman( Book )
64 editions published between 1974 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,763 libraries worldwide
Michael Nyman's book is a first-hand account of experimental music from 1950 to 1970. First published in 1974, it has remained the classic text on a significant form of music making and composing which developed alongside, and partly in opposition to, the post-war modernist tradition of composers such as Boulez, Berio, or Stockhausen. The experimentalist par excellence was John Cage whose legendary 4' 33'' consists of four minutes and thirty three seconds of silence to be performed on any instrument. Such pieces have a conceptual rather than purely musical starting point and radically challenge conventional notions of the musical work. Nyman's book traces the revolutionary attitudes that were developed towards concepts of time, space, sound, and composer/performer responsibility. It was within the experimental tradition that the seeds of musical minimalism were sown and the book contains reference to the early works of Reich, Riley, Young, and Glass. --Publisher

La osadía de sus escritos atrajo la atención de las altas esferas de su época y se convirtió incluso en confidente del Rey Carlos II muy permisivo con los devaneos del Conde.

Monsieur Hire by Patrice Leconte( visu )
23 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 390 libraries worldwide
Touching, lyrical, erotic, suspenseful and enigmatic, Patrice Leconte's (Girl on the Bridge) 1989 psychological drama Monsieur Hire is both "a twisted love story and a tragic thriller" (London Sunday Times). In a provincial French apartment block, Monsieur Hire (Michel Blanc) endures a solitary life of dulling work as a tailor and vitriolic scorn from his neighbors. Hire's only solace is an occasional night out bowling and the voyeuristic admiration of his neighbor, the "ravishingly erotic" (Entertainment Weekly) Alice (Sandrine Bonnaire? Vagabond,? Nos Amours), a beautiful, free-spirited woman conducting a heated love affair through un-drawn curtains across the way. But when police discover the nude body of another young woman in a nearby vacant lot, Hire becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation that brings him face to face with the object of his desire even as it threatens to ensnare them both in a web of deceit, accusation, lust, and guilt. Adapted from the book by celebrated Belgian crime novelist Georges Simenon, Monsieur Hire is a film of gorgeously muted widescreen color and"funereal beauty" (The Washington Post) that coolly unpacks sexual obsession and romantic love with an intelligence and understated intensity "so delicate that you almost hold your breath for the last half-hour" (Roger Ebert)
