Brooklyn, NY: Permanent Press. 1993
(102) pp., small 8vo. Perfect-bound in printed card covers in glassine dust-jacket, with audio CD. One of a thousand numbered copies, signed by both Goldsmith and La Barbara. Light sunning and one tiny faint spot to cover, otherwise as new in slightly darkened jacket with a small tear at crown of spine; CD as new.

With an introduction (“Sound Sight Sense Chez Kenneth Goldsmith”) by Geoffrey Young, a “Preface to the Music” by John Schaefer, comments on the poems by Robert Mahoney, a note by composer/performer La Barbara, and eighty three-color illustrations. 

The result of a two-year collaboration, in which Barbara set and performed vocal versions of Goldsmith’s visual texts. The texts, originally produced as prints, are here reproduced as full-page plates, and the performances are presented on the accompanying CD.
