In Loving Memory of the Working Papers of the Institute for the Study of Advanced Poetic Research: Chapbook of Casse-Tête, A Festival of Experimental Music, edited by Nikki Reimer and Jonathon Wilcke
"Why would you drop a perfectly good set of assumptions?" is a perfectly good question that sardonically resonates throughout the book. As outlined in the title, the poetic sketches marked out in the working papers respond to the 2014 experimental music festival, including the dropping of a piano.
