I dont know that I care that Coolidge wrote the first half of this book while listening to recording of the Rova Saxophone Quartet, or that he wrote the second half as poem by poem improvisations on poems in the first half. Ive never been able to actually see or hear these relations too much. But whatever he did or however he did it he managed to crank our some almost impenetrably abstract but incredibly interesting poems.

Theres still a narrative-type drive to the writing, but its also the most purely abstractly musical (meaning organized by sound and rhythm and all that) of his writings. It actually reminds me more of some thorny modern composer (like Roger Sessions or Milton Babbit) than Rova.
