Summary:
Although La Monte Young is one of the most important composers of the late twentieth century, he is also one of the most elusive. Though loosely structured upon the chronology of the composer's career, this book takes a multi-disciplinary approach that combines biography, musicology, ethnomusicology, and music analysis.
