MUSIC / SELECTED
 
         As well as producing revolutionary sound and image situations in his films, Snow has issued many recordings under his own name, some of which are not "free improvisation." These include the historic Michael Snow, Musics for Piano, Whistling, Microphone and Tape Recorder issued by Chatham Square (New York), 1974, which used recording itself as an instrument. The Last LP CD (1994) and Sinoms (1989) continued his work in multi-track studio recording.
 
         His most recent recording is the 3 CD box Snow Solo Piano Solo Snow - 3 Phases, issued in 2001 by OHM/Avatar of Québec. As Kevin McNeilly puts it in Musicworks(spring 2001), "Snow’s pianism is truly orchestral. … His playing refuses to be locked into a static coherence, refuses to be packaged. It calls for a re-thinking of the practice of improvisation."
 
         Michael Snow performs on acoustic piano, electric piano, synthesizer, trumpet, flugelhorn, guitar, percussion, and invented instruments, on all fourteen recordings by CCMC.
 
         Snow has also done sound installations, such as Hearing Aid (1974) and is well known for his work in film, video, bookworks, holography, painting and sculpture.
An interactive DVD-ROM called Anarchive 2: Digital Snow, an encyclopedia of his work in all mediums, appeared in October 2002.
 
         The Michael Snow Project of 1994 was a retrospective of his work in all mediums at both The Power Plant and The Art Gallery of Ontario. Four books were issued amongst which is Music/Sound, a 300-page book about his music.
