FLYNT, HENRY - NEW AMERICAN ETHNIC MUSIC VOLUME 2: SPINDIZZY (CD)


"Before the publication of his music, Flynt was most often known as an (often distorted) footnote in art history, as the man who invented "Concept Art," Flynt's name in the early sixties for his formal attacks on logical and mathematics, often presented in art galleries. Flynt was initially (1962) a composer of the post-Cage school who quickly turned completely against modernist music and created his own Flynt genres, primarily through radicalizing Southern musical forms like Bluegrass, Country, and Country Blues-elevating them to an enchanted level, much as Coltrane did with the jazz of his time. His music is a parallel stream to his extremely distinct and radical philosophy (his primary work is as a radical intellectual, with visionary, wide-ranging work that is highly intellectually demanding)."
