    I first heard Lucier in 2004, around the same time I found a copy of ‘Crossings’ – a collection of scores up to about 1978. From that moment his music and philosophy towards composition, the role of technology, perception and (most importantly) listening, changed my life forever.

    Clocker is pretty good. Discovered it through a cursory search for "polydyptic", which was used in Italo Calvino's novel "If on a Winter's Night a Traveler". More info here: http://www.dramonline.org/albums/alvin-lucier-clocker/notes. Trying to get a hold of some other work(s)

    Pauline if you are reading this, I left the front door key at Tony's house. Also he asked you to glue and expand the estrus and electrified [group]'pataphysics[/group] group.

    If you are sitting in a room listening to 'I Am Sitting In a Room', would it be right to say that you are not just hearing the natural resonant frequencies of the room that Alvin was recording in, but also the frequencies of the room you yourself are sat in?
  • Avatar for butteredcat
    the very important thing is to find the difference between 'experimental' and 'avant-garde'. yep, the terms are similar, but not the same. not every musical experiment is either innovation or avant-garde.

    the Curtis/Burr album is my favourite.
  • Avatar for astro1_rohit
    Still Lives ia a great effort, high-pitch minimalism (with a regular sine wave chime for the first two tracks)
  • Avatar for _duif
    the normal version of I am sitting in a room on Lovely Music is 45 minutes. there is or was a shorter, earlier recording on Ubu. but I don't know about any 68 minute version? and of course people really listen to all of it, what the hell? such a great piece!
  • Avatar for davisonio
    Well I have the 15 minutes version. Anyone else have any other lengths?!
  • Avatar for astro1_rohit
    The album here shows 45 mins....what version do you have????

    roryhasreturned: I presume robosapien is talking about the slight misspelling. It's because the ubuweb mp3 is mistagged, methinks. I've since changed my tag, but I presume otehrs have not...?
