A Complete Facsimile. Ecstatic Peace Library, 2016. ISBN: 978-0-9972850-5-5. Flexi-bound cover, Swiss-bound, 800 pages. Musics was published, from 1975 to 1979, by musicians and artists on the London scene of free improvisation, focusing on the most innovative participants of their generation.Musics was a blueprint for the interdisciplinary activities of sound art, field recording, free improvisation, live electronics, 20th century composition & audio culture. It came out six times a year and ran for twenty-three hand-assembled issues. The journal covered improvised and non-western music alongside performance art, reflecting the broad interests of the so-called “second generation” of London’s improvisers, and provided a convivial focus point. Overlapping with the london musicians’ collective (lmc), the publication first launched in Spring of 1975, with the tagline: an impromental experivisation arts magazine and a manifesto that proposed the destruction of artificial boundaries, and linked Free Jazz, the academic ministrations of John Cage, Cornelius Cardew and K. Stockhausen and indigenous and non-European music. Musics was significant in the discussion of traditional Asian instruments as paths of equal value for the performance of musics.

VIAINDUSTRIAE PUBLISHING / 2012This book is not a catalogue raisonné, it instead takes a look at the library of an amateur, an excuse to apprehend this aspect of Richard Prince's work which encompasses books and the question of the collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the 'ghosts' of the missing books. Richard Prince is an avid collector of books, an obsessive one. This fervor is visible in The Good Life or American/English, where he photographs covers of books from his collection, reducing the book to an image, a simple surface.
