Everyone has seemed to love the photo albums I posted on La Monte Young and Joan La Barbara, so I thought I’d round it out, and broaden my subject to the breadth of avant-garde music from the 1960’s and 70’s. This is one of my favorite periods of music. These are images that I’ve collected while wanderings around the internet. I’ve done my best to cover as broad a range as seemed reasonable (roughly 60 images), but I haven’t managed to be as inclusive as I might have liked. Let’s chock it up to taste for now, as those represented are among my favorites of the generation.  I hope you enjoy, and that they give you a window into an incredibly exciting period of thought, experiment, and sound.
