Alvin Lucier: Vespers and Other Early Works

Öffnen Sie iTunes, um Hörproben zu wählen und Musik zu kaufen und zu laden.


"There is nothing like "Vespers" in the literature of music," writes Robert Ashley in his liner notes; in Alvin Lucier's case the hype is justified, as showcased on the Vespers and Other Early Works compilation. In "Vespers," performers equipped with Sondols (sonar dolphin echolocation devices) move around the performing space, creating an image of it in the listener's perception. Though no stereo version can faithfully reproduce the music's spatial aspect, the version here is mesmerizingly beautiful. Lucier's pioneering work can be seen as the precursor of many developments in today's music. "Chambers" predates Toshiya Tsunoda's experiments recording with microphones inside closed spaces by 30 years; and the almost inaudible "Elegy for Albert Anastasia" (1963) is the forerunner of "lowercase" composers such as Francisco López, Bernhard Günter, and Steve Roden. Also included here is the long overdue reissue of 1967's "North American Time Capsule," where Lucier uses Sylvania vocoders to analyse and produce purely electronic versions of spoken and other sounds, as "a message to listeners who don't know about us." "(Middletown) Memory Space" instructs performers to go out into a city and record, by any means, its sounds, in order to return to the performance space and "recreate, solely by means of your voices and instruments, those outside sound situations." This version for koto, shakuhachi, guitar, accordion, and piano is exquisite — and that's where the true significance of Lucier's work lies: the musical realization of his concepts is as striking and memorable as the concepts themselves.

A trailblazing force in psycho-acoustic music, avant-garde composer and performer Alvin Lucier was born in Nashua, New Hampshire in 1931; educated at Yale and Brandeis, he also spent two years in Rome on a Fulbright Scholarship before returning to Brandeis in 1962 to teach and conduct the university's chamber chorus. His breakthrough composition, Music for Solo Performer (1964-65) for Enormously Amplified Brain Waves and Percussion, was the first work to feature sounds generated by brain waves in...
