The First Outing of an Unstoppable Creative Team
PUSH TURN MOVE is the book that launched Bjooks as a publisher and made visionary author and musician Kim Bjørn a household name in studios around the world. Kim was aided by respected author, educator, and electronic musician Dr. Mike Metlay, who served as Editor and wrote the book's Time section, a retrospective of human-machine interaction going back over 400 years. The book was edited by Mike with his Atomic Words colleague Diana Smethurst, and expert synthesist and author Paul Nagle acted as Editor and technical advisor.
