The Free Music Machine Drawings of Percy Grainger

The Free Music Machine Drawings of Percy Grainger

Author: Wilfred Mellers
$90.00(AUD)  inc GST
This book contains all the drawings
by Percy Grainger for the Free
Music Machines he developed with
Burnett Cross towards the end of
his musical life. They were mostly
drawn between 1951 and 1953.
This is the first time many of these
drawings have been seen, and their
improvisational notation and sense
of invention make them of recurrent
interest to composers, writers and
artists working in wider fields. At the
same time the book attempts to be
the album in which to present them,
and in which they can be viewed at a
suitably large and readable scale. The
book and drawings are introduced by
an authoritative contextual essay by
musicologist Wilfred Mellers written
especially for this publication.
