Mark Fell – Structure and Synthesis (Urbanomic, book)

Mark Fell is a friendly radical. As a member of the Mille Plateaux-affiliated duo SND, he helped elevate electronic (dance) music to a new, much more abstract level and also pushed the envelope as a solo artist and in his numerous collaborations with artists such as drummer Will Guthrie and his son Rian Treanor. »Structure and Synthesis. The Anatomy of Practice« (finally!) compiles his numerous essays and enriches those theoretical reflections on sound and everything around it with personal notes just as much as it can be understood as a creative handbook. The already varied interaction between these different approaches is rounded off by many graphic interventions that, literally speaking, illustrate Fell's holistic approach. A special book, as to be expected from an exceptional artist like Fell.
