A classic meditation on the inner workings of art July 26 2014
By J. McGuire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is a philosophical meditation of the relationship between two keyboards--the piano and the word-processor--and what it means to use one's imagination (to improvize) on either. It treats correlations between the imaginative world of pure sound, the imaginative world of language, and the technological world of the machines we depend on to "express ourselves." Everyone who writes creatively should read it.

Dreary Read Oct. 12 2013
By Femme Vitale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I could not find anything redeeming about this book. The narrator's voice was extremely annoying, to the point of being something like fingernails on a chalkboard. Avoid.
