With artists' projects by Bill Burns, Bryan Nash Gill, and Mary Lum, the issue also includes the second installment of the series "Analog Recovery," co-presented with the Magnum Foundation, featuring never-before-seen early portraits by the Magnum photogrpher Erich Hartmann; a fascinating found object by image researcher/archivist Rich Remsberg; documents related to the Museum of Modern Art's groundbreaking 1969 "Spaces" exhibition (introduced by Museum Archivist Michelle Elligott); new fiction by Victoria Matsui; 100 frames from Kelly Reichardt's undistributed 1999 short film Ode, with an introduction by critic Amy Taubin; Angus Trumble's "1986 in Haiku"; and facsimile pages from the guestbook of art critic Dorothy Adlow and legendary composer, conductor, and musicologist Nicolas Slonimsky.
The issue closes with a compilation CD containing songs inspired by Slonimsky's hugely influential 1947 book Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns. Contributors to the CD include Andrew Bird, Lee Ranaldo, Elliott Sharp, Cat Martino, and Horse Feathers.
