Item Description...
Herbert Bruen (1918-2000) was a pioneer in the development of electronic and computer music. He was recognized within and beyond the field of music as an eloquent and original contributor of ideas relating composition and systems theory, language and thought, performance and everyday life. Bruen wrote and spoke incisively on the function of the arts in our society: What are the social functions of "composer" and "listener"? What is the function of "time" in art? How does "communication" hasten the decay of new thoughts, and what significance does this have on creative and social acts?

The book includes lectures given for non-professionals, articles containing valuable new formulations and insights for professionals and an audio CD featuring Bruen's compositions. The book is an excellent resource for those interested in music composition, computer music, electronic music, music literature, 20th century music history and interdisciplinary studies in arts and sciences.

An accompanying CD ably presents Brun's own musical works  Jun 8, 2004
Also available in a hardcover edition (0819566691, $70.00) and deftly edited by Arun Chanra, When Music Resists Meaning: The Major Writings Of Herbert Brun is an anthology of essays by electronic and computer music pioneer Herbert Brun (1918-2000). Delving into such questions as the social functions of "composer" and "listener", the use of "time" in art, how "communication" hastens the end of new thoughts, creative rebirth and reformation, and much more, these lectures offer valuable insights into the composition process for experts and non-professionals alike. An accompanying CD ably presents Brun's own musical works, in this thoughtful resource for any 20th century musician or music historian, especially those with a keen interest in modern music's evolution through the media of computers and electronics.
