Refreshing antidote to clickbait music journalism


Composing a World: Lou Harrison, Musical Wayfarer appears to have been remaindered as new copies are available from the States on Amazon at very low prices. This definitive study of a grossly underrated composer comes complete with a CD of Harrison's music that is worth the discounted price alone. Running to almost 400 pages with chapter headings inclusing 'Music and the Dance', 'Lou Harrison and East Asian Music', 'Sounding off: Music and Politics', 'Harrison, Homosexuality and the Gay World, and 'Not Just Music: Criticism, Poetry, Art and Typography', Composing a World is a refreshing antidote to today's all-pervasive clickbait music journalism.

Interesting to see this rather arcane post re-tweeted by the PR newsfeed @prbizdaily - https://twitter.com/prbizdaily/status/454538113549742080

It seems the backlash against clickbait music journalism is gathering momentum.
