A propos de l'auteur: Jay Havighurst has explored building musical instruments since graduating from the Studio for Interrelated Media and Sculpture at Massachusetts College of Art in 1980. A resident of the North Shore of Massachusetts, he designed interactive, kinetic sound art, including large-scale sculptures that combine abstract visual elements with themes of rhythm and cycles inspired by nature. His work has been exhibited in the New Directions in Sound Environments show at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, Massachusetts, and at numerous galleries and festivals. Havighurst composes music that is layered and multi-timbral, and has accompanied several modern dance and performance pieces. With an unusual collection of instruments from around the world, he has a passion to share their sounds in group music-making, drumming, and celebrations, making music participatory and open to everyone

Description de la librairie : My wife and I are inveterate book collectors who have accumulated large collections prior to our marriage. Cindy has collected modern firsts but has not listed many yet, and I have had a greater interest in Midwest history, sports, autographed editions, and non-fiction. We are now officially outta shelves and want to find good homes for some of our duplicates, tag-a-longs from buying collections, and other items that we have loved too much to put back. We are merely part-time book dealers with other full time work. We endeavor to grade strictly and describe accurately with true book collectors/lovers in mind. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for any reason for a full refund, excluding return shipping. We are also interested in buying Midwest history, archaeology, Indian history, auto racing, and autographed presidential books and journals.
