Press Release

A landmark publication celebrating the life and work of American musician and composer Arthur Russell, the man the Guardian called 'One of the 20th century's true musical visionaries'. The music of Arthur Russell defies classification. Across a twenty-year career he created a body of work which ranged from his pioneering compositions as part of the New York avant-garde alongside artists including Philip Glass and Allen Ginsberg, to his genre-expanding disco and art pop productions, to his posthumously released folk songs. Travels Over Feeling is the result of extensive research by author Richard King, curating the ephemera and documentation found in both Arthur’s and other private archives, and consists of hand-written scores, lyrics, photos, let- ters and drawings. Throughout, King has conducted wide-ranging original interviews with Arthur’s collaborators, contemporaries, family and friends. The resulting book reveals a true picture of one of the most distinctive artists of the last fifty years.

Author Biography: RICHARD KING is the author of Original Rockers (short- listed for the Gordon Burn Prize and a Rough Trade, Times and Uncut Book of the Year), How Soon Is Now? (a Sunday Times Music Book of the Year), The Lark Ascending (a Rough Trade, MOJO and Evening Standard Book of the Year, shortlisted for the Penderyn Prize) and, most recently, Brittle with Relics, all published by Faber & Faber. He is the current Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Cardiff University School of Journalism, Media & Culture
