Conversations avec Tom Johnson

Also mentioned are the composer’s main influences (Allen Forte, Morton Feldman and others), his musician friends such as Phill Niblock or Frederic Rzewski, and some of his main pieces such as the Bonhoeffer Oratorium.

An excerpt is available, as low-resolution digitized format.
