When Less Is More. Over 22 pages our writers examine the turning points in music where stripping it down and cutting it back forged new worlds of sound, from composition to funk to punk, including: Black minimalism: Taking in fine art, funk, religion, rap, tape loops and more, the story of black minimalism defies an official narrative tainted by prejudice and lies. By David Toop. Kurt Munkacsi: The recording engineer and collaborator – with Philip Glass, Richard Landry and David Rosenboom, among others – is one of minimalism’s unsung facilitators. By Tommy McCutchon. Plus, Neil Luck, Mary Stark, Yximalloo, Louise Landes Levi, Global Ear: Berlin, Invisible Jukebox with Edan, Michael A Gonzales selects the The Inner Sleeve, and Epiphanies by Pram’s Harry Dawes. Plus the usual mass of albums, books and shows reviewed, and much more.
