This one has been years in the making. It's an elegant CD and Book set of Amanda Stewart's solo work in sound, visual, concrete, political, and text-based poetry, covering a period of 16 years from 1981 - 1997. Those who know Amanda's virtuosic work in the Machine for Making Sense will be delighted at the intensity, clarity, and focus which pervades her solo work as well. Those who don't know her work will be amazed to discover a major voice in Australian composition. This CD/Book is clearly in the must-have category, both from the musical and literary points of view.
