Issue No. 2 of P.FO.: New Music, an obscure journal of experimental music scores compiled by Daniel Wolf. Wolf is a composer and writer, and was the editor of Xenharmonikon, the "Informal Journal of Experimental Music," from 1985-1989. Wolf was aided by a young Jonathan Segel, whose scores appeared in every issue and who co-edited the double Issue 3/4. Segel is a composer and multi-instrumentalist who has performed with Camper Van Beethoven, Sparklehorse, Eugene Chadbourne and Dieselhed, as well as his own group Hieronymus Firebrain.
The title page includes a quote by Jacques Derrida and also states "P.F.O., a journal of new music provokes suspicion at each appearance; it is nearly impossible to procure and peruse; its paper and ink are edible, without toxicity or mailice."
Includes scores by Ivor Darreg (who coined the term "xenharmonic"), Douglas Leedy, Diana Nieves, Daniel Wolf and Jonathan Segel. Most scores are published in the composer's hand. We know of only four issues published between 1983-1984. A very rare and energetic experimental music journal featuring key figures from the microtonal, xenharmonic and early electronic music communities. Item #927.
Condition: Near Fine, minor edge bumps and light toning at edges of cover; all copies of Issue 2 appear to contain a typo on the title page calling it Issue 3 which has been circled and has a "2" written above it in red pen.
