"We are very excited to present FO A RM no. 5, a special sound-art issue with an exclusive full-length CD complimenting the writings. FO A RM 5 (Autonomy) is an examination of sound and freedom, a look at how artists and audiences take responsibility for their place in the world. Topic editor and composer Michael J. Schumacher asks - How can we save ourselves from the undermining forces of commercialization and homogenization by using the system in place, but returning as little as possible to it ? From a variety of perspectives along the fringes, we probe this question and raise many others. Including a special section on the great Filipino composer Jose Maceda, with rare writings and scores - an in-depth interview with Serbian radio artist Arsenije Jovanovic - writings by sound artists Giancarlo Toniutti, Francisco Lopez, Achim Wollscheid and John Duncan - notes on improvisation by Michael Bullock - a probe into musical autonomy in the armed forces - writings on sound installation by physicist Luis Lopez with composer Barbara Held - a profile of Diapason sound gallery (NYC) and the Berwick Research Institute (Boston) - a poetic essay by musique concrete composer Lionel Marchetti - the early scores of Robert Ashley examined by avant-garde cellist Alex Waterman - experimental poetry by Paolo Javier, Steven Zultanski and Travis Nichols - art by Jan Anderzen - and much more ! PLUS, in collaboration with Sedimental Records, an amazing 80-minute CD with music by Jonas Baes, Barbara Held, Arsenije Jovanovic, Jose Maceda and Michael J. Schumacher !" [publishing house info]
