I am currently reading and enjoying a fine overview of
the movement/impulse which gives about equal time to
visual arts (esp. painting and sculpture) and music. 
The book is MINIMALISM:ORIGINS, and the author is
Edward Strickland, whose background and writing
actually centers more on music.  This a refreshing
change, and though I get the feeling like the author
has a snidely dismissive attitude about what he
conceives as "postmodernism", the book still seems
fascinating and informative, three-quarters of the way
