An excellent book. I saw it in a bookstore years ago when it came out and couldn't afford it at the time. I found it used online and got someone else to give it to me last Christmas because I'm back to poor again. It's hard to go into the subject very much in a blog comment, but that movement as such has had a profound impact on popular culture (film, tv, computer graphics) and yet is still virtually unknown. I'll leave that to anyone interested to investigate on their own, but with the recommendation that they do what they can to find the very much related "Visual Music: Synaesthesia in Art and Music Since 1900" by Kerry Brougher. It was written to accompany an exhibit in 2005 at the Hirschhorn in D.C. (where I saw it) and the LA MOCA. One of the best museum exhibits I've ever seen. I nearly missed out on the visual music book too. I didn't buy it in the gift shop figuring I could find it for next to nothing later. It sky rocketed in price and I was ultimately happy to get lucky and only have to pay about twice what it would have cost me if I had just bought it in the gift shop. It's well worth hunting down in a library. The Hirschhorn still has a pretty good website up that they also made for the exhibition. Check it out at http://hirshhorn.si.edu/visualmusic/
