Ben Johnston is an American composer internationally known for his work with extended just intonation. This is a critical-analytical study of his early compositions, his studies with Harry Partch and John Cage, and his experiments with just intonation, serialism, indeterminacy, jazz, and finally, extended just intonation. Pieces are analyzed and biographical material is included. The main emphasis of the text, however, is on examining Johnston's research about tuning and scalar theory as it relates to just intonation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Von Gunden is at her best when dealing with the tunings behind the microtonal works and the many compositional implications (including rhythm) of those tunings. * Tempo *
A very erudite and well-informed book...Heidi Von Gunden knows her subject so thoroughly and deals with it so intricately...this is a studious publication well worth the concentration required to appreciate it. * Crescendo International *
Von Gunden's slender book is filled with all kinds of information...Recommended for undergraduate and graduate students in music, physics, and acoustics. * CHOICE *
This fine book...will be especially helpful to those interested in the subject of just intonation. Most of all, it should induce more musicians to perform Ben Johnston's difficult but rewarding music. * Sonneck Society Bulletin *
