Left-handed blows gathers together, for the first time, the writings of outstanding sound artist Bruce Russell.
Russell, member of the groups The Dead C. and Handful of Dust and founder of the renowned record-labels Corpus Hermeticum and Xpressway, is reputed to have driven a substantial wedge into New Zealand music.
Besides his acclaimed work as a performer, recording artist and producer, Russell is a respected as a writer who theorises improvisation from a leftist perspective. His collected writing, fluidly unequivocal, effectively tracks the thinking of the group of free music luminaries to which he belongs.
This book consists of essays written over the last 16 years, reflecting on sound and its role in culture. It compiles online essays, liner notes, catalogue contributions and most of the previously published contents of the Russell-produced Logopandocy: the journal of vain erudition.

Left-handed blows will be launched with events in Christchurch and in Auckland at which Russell will perform:
In Christchurch, at Goodbye Blue Monday, on Thursday, 28 January at 6pm
And in Auckland, at The High Seas, on Saturday, 6 February at 6pm
This publication was funded by Creative New Zealand and was supported by the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology.
Left handed blows will be available from selected bookshops and www.clouds.co.nz, for NZ$35 (includes GST).
