Mark So "a box of wind"

85.00

MBCo is excited to announce the release of Mark So's long-awaited a box of wind: Ashbery Series. This latest effort by MBCo's Impossible Objects presents the first large-scale publication of the Los Angeles based composer's ground-breaking series of performance text scores addressing the work of American poet, John Ashbery. Consisting of more than 200 works composed between 2006 and 2011, each work in the Series provides a a score inspired by or relating to a single poem from the poet's prodigious oeuvre. The works, mostly printed on 8.5 x 11 sheets of ordinary office paper, reveal remarkably innovative relations to contemporary music, lyric and the voice, and can be appreciated as visual compositions by a single reader in addition to the possibilities they present for group performance. Very much a labor of love, box of wind also includes a two-sided letterpress object, a printed transparency sheet, and various folios of multipage works inside an archival box, partially modified to better suit the publication.
