additional recommendation of anthology of translations assembled by Roger Reynolds in the 1980s

A JOSTLED SILENCE: Contemporary Japanese Musical Thought Edited by Roger Reynolds; translated by Sumi Adachi with Reynolds published in 3 parts in the journal Perspectives of New Music, Vol. 30, No. 1, Winter 1992; pp. 22-80 Vol. 30, No. 2, Summer 1992; pp. 60-100 Vol. 31, No. 2, Summer 1993; pp. 172-228 (School of Music DN-10 / University of Washington / Seattle, WA 98195 Tel: +1 206 543 0196)

Good material here that alas did not get published as a book in the late 1980s when it was assembled and almost released by Sam Francis's Lapis Press (Santa Monica, CA) after a change of management there. As its copyeditor and an erstwhile Japanist I was most excited as very little material of the type was then available.

There were a number of essays, including a longish piece by Takemitsu Toru that begins as a meditation at a performance in Indonesia and ranges across topics as far afield as volcanoes and John Cage, pieces by Ichiyanagi Toshi, Yuasa Joji, and Takahashi Yuji. (All listed according to then-current convention with surname last.) At least I hope they all made it into the journal--it's available on JSTOR.

Happy fishing.
