The design of "Notations21" is spectacular ... subtle, lovely, comprehensive, with a wonderful feel, in full color and full-size. Each page is full of ideas from scores and essays through the design of the page itself. (The word "full" keeps coming to mind.)
The Moller/Shim/Stabler "SoundVisions" (published in 2005 and quickly out of print) was an attempt to fill the years since Cage's "Notations", and kept to the square, monochrome format. I was pleased to discover "SoundVisions", but "Notations21" is a very special book, taking advantage of both the technology and the expectations that have changed since 1969.
With 165 composers represented, "Notations21" is at last a worthy and thorough successor to "Notations".
(Disclaimer: I am one of the composers in this book. But whether I had been selected or not, I would still feel this book is remarkable.)

Designers did not understand the significance of author's idea and in many cases just destroyed it. Several designers are listed in the book and I'm not sure whose fault it is. Read morePublished on January 12, 2012 by april
