A Book about ECM

"Horizons Touched: The Music of ECM" is now available. Published by Granta Books of London, and edited by Steve Lake and Paul Griffiths, this book presents a multiple-perspective survey of the label’s work.

The first volume to address the full range of music on ECM, “Horizons Touched” contains extensive interviews with producer Manfred Eicher and over 20 specially commissioned essays on all aspects of the label’s work by an international line-up of leading music journalists and writers. Interspersed between the essays are more than 100 statements from ECM’s composers, musicians and engineers as well as film makers, photographers and designers associated with the company. The book also includes a complete ECM discography, with all releases from 1969 to the present.

Incorporating more than 400 colour and black & white illustrations – album covers, concert photos, session photos and more – this is a book every ECM collector will want to own. This large-format 448-page hardcover book measures 22 x 30 cm, weighs more than two kilos, and is issued in a slipcase.
