Subject: Composer Philip Corner explains 'minimalism'

In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever
<>, you'll find (among other things):

Composer Philip Corner explains
"All 'isms' are political snow-jobs, and in this case, a way of putting
American economic power behind a nationalist program of professional
opportunism, exactly as was done, for instance with "Action Painting"
and "Pop-Art” (God help me, there have been gestures towards
perpetrating the same with Fluxus- but we have been able to protect
ourselves, by being failures! hahaha)."

See you online,
