* Rare original artist' book - Music scores and instructions for performance * After folding Something Else Press in 1974 due to financial difficulties, founder Dick Higgins would move on to other publishing projects for the remainder of his life and career, mostly under the imprint of Unpublished Editions and later Printed Editions. From 1980-1983, Higgins produced a remarkable series of publications using the format of common sheet music books. Within are experimental musical scores and instruction for performance, deploying different combinations of texts, graphics, and photographic imagery. Piano Sonata #2 houses three graphic compositions printed on acetate sheets to be placed over an existing sheet of familiar piano music and performed accordingly. 

"A pure form, printed on four sheets of vinyl in different page of traditional music and follows the arrows."
