Henry Cow, Rock Experimentalism, and the Vernacular Avant-Garde
Room 266, Everson Hall

​Assistant Professor of Music Benjamin Piekut (Cornell University) is author of Experimentalism Otherwise: The New York Avant-Garde and its Limits, published in 2011 by the University of California Press. Situated at the intersection of free jazz, the Cagean avant-garde, Fluxus, radical politics, and popular music, the book portrays New York experimentalism in the 1960s as a series of conflicts, struggles, and exclusions.
