*Rare original arist' book - Music scores and instruction for performance* Sonata for Prepared Piano (1982) is a short work which, again, uses photoderivations as parts of the notation—this time nature with incomplete figure photographs, mostly obscured by the natural objects around them.      (Dick Higgins, "The Strategy of Each of My Books" from Horizons, 1984)

"Four movements make up this thirteen minute work. Each uses a very different method of interpreting its materials, a set of four photo-montages using natural imagery (trees, rocks, branches and nudes)." D.H.
