I hope that Theresa Sauer will continue her research and writing. She clearly has a gift to communicate complex, creative ideas in both a visual and written media.
The only thing I find lacking is the music itself. It would have been wonderful to ahve the music to listen to while reading the score.
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.)
