Title: More Brilliant Than The Sun: Adventures In Sonic Fiction
Publisher: Quartet Books
Type of book: Musical
Notes: Okay, okay, I know it’s a book and er no it doesn’t come with a CD unlike Paul D. Miller’s Rhythm Science. So, strictly speaking, it shouldn’t be here should it? But here it is. Quite apart from it’s being a wonderful piece of design in itself, More Briliant Than The Sun is the most musical piece of writing I know, literally – Kodwo Eshun compiles, compresses, expands and invents new words and strings them together into sentences that are as brilliantly rhythmic as your favourite musician. It’s also challenging and hugely enjoyable and you should read it if you haven’t already. So it deserves its place here.
