    Default Alvin Lucier

    I've just discovered some of Lucier's music, and found it utterly fascinating. I heard of I am sitting in a room a while ago, and it is fascinating.

    Not to mention his sense of humour, look at the title:

    This is fantastic. Hakon Stene's version, recorded at Tomb Emmanuelle in Oslo, is much faster and louder. With more reverberation of the place, it gives a completely different impression.

    It is included in Etude Begone Badum.

    Default Nothing Is Real, for piano, amplified teapot, recorder, & mini-sound system

    Alvin Lucier ~ Nothing Is Real, for piano, amplified teapot, recorder, & mini-sound system

    A very nice piece, imo.

    A link I had not seen since I last looked, better audio, longer play -- the other is quite nice. Listening to this as I post it, it may be the more accessible, if not the better, of the two.

    Ps. @ the OP: how enormously refreshing to have a TC thread not about 'your favorite romantic era' anything! Thanks!

    I agree, I knew it from the Cd with that title by Marino Formenti on Col.legno (2003), and it's one of my favourites.

    That seems a very special Cd, and the "orchestra" is amplified, besides the space, which I assume is this Tomb:

    It seems so, according to this review by The Rambler. (The room has 20-second reverberation.)

    Seeing the title of the second video made me realise why I recognised the melody. Thank you, it'll stop preying on my mind now!
