PASSAGE ... THE BOOK is a collection of 82 texts and a wealth of images from the live PASSAGE intermedia events performed in recent years by Roger Reynolds. It has just been printed by Halstan & Co, Ltd in England, and is available through C.F. Peters, New York.
PASSAGE is a collaborative project realized by composer-author Reynolds with artist Stacie Birky Greene and editors Robert Kirzinger and Karen Reynolds. Through graphic manipulations, it melds texts written by Reynolds with images he selected such that a metaphoric “viscosity” arises, and the reader/apprehender’s experience is constantly modulated. Reynolds has performed intermedia PASSAGE events in La Jolla, at Darmstadt, in New York, Cambridge, and Ann Arbor.
