I am known for this, that and the other-other, but behind my attempts to transform the earth's entire landscape into a concert hall, there is and always has been a steadfast composer of notes and bening anarchy. Lost Marbles is both an insider's guide and a crash-course intro to my music-music created mostly in prominent experimental back rooms for single occasions and never heard from again. So I decided do make my own musical sapler including fragments of significant musical events from the middle '80s to the present whichI felt would make coincise but essential exposé if not a self-portrait, bringing myself and my public up to date with musics that toured briefly with world-class dance companies or theater groups, or resided in complex and expensive installation that lasted the length of a festival. True, most of these pieces had durations spanning aminimum of thirty minutes to over five hours, but here the chosen snippets arepresented as the antipasti and the main course all in one. Excepting four electronic and improvised pieces, all the music is conventionally written on paper with pen and ink - Alvin Curran (Rome, January 15, 2004). [post_title] => Endangered species [post_excerpt] => Democratic, irreverent and traditionally experimental, Curran travels in a computerized covered wagon between the Golden Gate and the Tiber River, and makes music for every occasion with any sounding phenomena -- a volatile mix of lyricism and chaos, structure and indeterminacy, fog horns, fiddles and fiddle heads. He is dedicated to the restoration of dignity to the profession of making non-commercial music as part of a personal search for future social, political and spiritual forms. Curran's music-making embraces all the contradictions (composed/improvised, tonal/atonal, maximal/minimal...) in a serene dialectical encounter. His more than 100 works feature taped/sampled natural sounds, piano, synthesizers, computers, violin, percussion, shofar, ship horns, accordion and chorus. Whether in the intimate form of his well-known solo performances, or pure chamber music, experimental radio works or large-scale site-specific sound environments and installations, all forge a very personal language from all the languages through dedicated research and recombinant invention. THE MAIN STORY With a fortuitous bang, he begins his musical journey (1965 in Rome) as co-founder of the radical music collective MUSICA ELETTRONICA VIVA, as a solo performer, and as a composer for Rome's avantgarde theater scene. In the 70's, he creates a poetic series of solo works for synthesizer, voice, taped sounds and found objects. Seeking to develop new musical spaces, and now considered one of the leading figures in making music outside of the concert halls -- he develops a series of concerts for lakes, ports, parks, buildings, quarries and caves -- his natural laboratories. In the 1980's, he extends the ideas of musical geography by creating simultaneous radio concerts for three, then six large ensembles performing together from many European Capitals. By connecting digital samplers to MIDI Grands (Diskklavier) and computers, since 1987, he produces an enriched body of work -- an ideal synthesis between the concert hall and all sounding phenomena in the world. In 1990, he begins a visually striking series of sound installations, in collaboration with Melissa Gould. Throughout these years he continues to write a significant amount of music for acoustic instruments. TEACHING From 1975-80 taught vocal improvisation at the Accademia Nazionale d'Arte Drammatica (Rome) and since 1991 has been the Milhaud Professor of Composition at Mills College in Oakland, California.

Consequently, in my artistic practice I am interested in examining, locating or commemorating collective culturl experiences in historic moments of creative transition. I attemp a marriage of art history and black history within the realm of the abstract languages they constructed. This notion is manifested through multi-disciplinary pieces that incorporate sound, works on paper, and site based projects all focusing on music, specifically the aage of modern music-the more avant-garde or Be Bopera, aperiosd with intense social and cultural implications. Complimenting today's deluge of hip hop culture as defining black culture, the audio pieces transform the gallery space into concert hall via speakers or private listening zones vie headsets. Assembling fresh pieces by means of jazz concepts like "call and response", tempo chanes, "stop-time" and counter melody, I build variations on the original compositions themselves, not unlike a musician riffing on a "standars" tune. Future project ideas range from the transcription of sheet music (scores) into large-scale drawings, collaborating with musicians to then "play" those works - to site related projects in and around Harlem.

With brilliance and zest, Pumhösl brought out Fux´s magisterial command of a keyboard style that is at once French (in its elegantly embellished dance movements) and Italian (in its learned contrapuntal structures). Even on a first hearing, the Ciaccona immediately proclaimed itself one of the great examples of this much-favored Baroque form, an impression that repeated auditions of the recording confirmed. The Partie is worthy of the finest of Baroque composers of French keyboard suites. The CD adds some remarkable fugues, and a G Minor Capriccio with much of the concinnity and imagination of a Couperin. It´s no wonder J.S. Bach so admired Fux.......

From U to Z [post_excerpt] => Benjamin (Ben) Patterson (born 1934 in Pittsburgh, PA.) graduated 1956, University of Michigan, Bachelor of Music. According to an old biography he was "proficient on the double-bass, knowledgeable in music theory and history and acquainted with the crafts of composition and conducting." After a brief career as a double-bassist with symphony orchestras in Canada he settled in Cologne in 1960. There, he was active in the contemporary music scene, performing in festivals in Cologne, Paris, Venice, Vienna and elsewhere. During this pre-Fluxus period he created and performed some of his early seminal works: - "Paper Piece", "Lemons" and "Variations for Double-Bass". Late in 1961 Patterson moved to Paris, where he collaborated with Robert Filliou ("puzzle poems") and where he published his "Methods and Processes". Commuting between Paris and West Germany, Patterson assisted George Maciunas in organizing the historic 1962 Fluxus Festival in Wiesbaden. His interview with Emmett Williams - for the opening of this festival - became the first article ever about Fluxus. Similarly, the first film documentation of Fluxus - news coverage by German Television - featured Patterson's performance of his "Variations for Double-Bass." After Wiesbaden Patterson and his works continued to be an important presence at Fluxus events around the world. In 1963 Patterson moved to New York, where he participated in Fluxus manifestations until the late 1960's - when he returned to pursue "an ordinary life". During the next two decades he successfully pursued a career in arts administration - managing a variety of music, theater and dance companies and serving as administrator or consultant to municipal, state and federal arts funding agencies. Although he remained outside the Fluxus scene during this period, he did occasionally surface with performances and new works for such events as the 20th Anniversary Fluxus Festival in Wiesbaden in 1982 and the 1983 Bienal de Sao Paulo, Brazil, and has been well represented in the various exhibitions throughout the USA of the Silverman Collection. In September 1988 Patterson returned from retirement with a solo exhibition of new assemblages and constructions at the Emily Harvey Gallery in New York. Since then, he has exhibited or performed widely in major or minor venues from Brisbane, Australia, to Prague, Czechoslovakia and from Winnipeg, Canada to Tusa, Sicily.

I am known for this, that and the other-other, but behind my attempts to transform the earth's entire landscape into a concert hall, there is and always has been a steadfast composer of notes and bening anarchy. Lost Marbles is both an insider's guide and a crash-course intro to my music-music created mostly in prominent experimental back rooms for single occasions and never heard from again. So I decided do make my own musical sapler including fragments of significant musical events from the middle '80s to the present whichI felt would make coincise but essential exposé if not a self-portrait, bringing myself and my public up to date with musics that toured briefly with world-class dance companies or theater groups, or resided in complex and expensive installation that lasted the length of a festival. True, most of these pieces had durations spanning aminimum of thirty minutes to over five hours, but here the chosen snippets arepresented as the antipasti and the main course all in one. Excepting four electronic and improvised pieces, all the music is conventionally written on paper with pen and ink - Alvin Curran (Rome, January 15, 2004). [post_title] => Endangered species [post_excerpt] => Democratic, irreverent and traditionally experimental, Curran travels in a computerized covered wagon between the Golden Gate and the Tiber River, and makes music for every occasion with any sounding phenomena -- a volatile mix of lyricism and chaos, structure and indeterminacy, fog horns, fiddles and fiddle heads. He is dedicated to the restoration of dignity to the profession of making non-commercial music as part of a personal search for future social, political and spiritual forms. Curran's music-making embraces all the contradictions (composed/improvised, tonal/atonal, maximal/minimal...) in a serene dialectical encounter. His more than 100 works feature taped/sampled natural sounds, piano, synthesizers, computers, violin, percussion, shofar, ship horns, accordion and chorus. Whether in the intimate form of his well-known solo performances, or pure chamber music, experimental radio works or large-scale site-specific sound environments and installations, all forge a very personal language from all the languages through dedicated research and recombinant invention. THE MAIN STORY With a fortuitous bang, he begins his musical journey (1965 in Rome) as co-founder of the radical music collective MUSICA ELETTRONICA VIVA, as a solo performer, and as a composer for Rome's avantgarde theater scene. In the 70's, he creates a poetic series of solo works for synthesizer, voice, taped sounds and found objects. Seeking to develop new musical spaces, and now considered one of the leading figures in making music outside of the concert halls -- he develops a series of concerts for lakes, ports, parks, buildings, quarries and caves -- his natural laboratories. In the 1980's, he extends the ideas of musical geography by creating simultaneous radio concerts for three, then six large ensembles performing together from many European Capitals. By connecting digital samplers to MIDI Grands (Diskklavier) and computers, since 1987, he produces an enriched body of work -- an ideal synthesis between the concert hall and all sounding phenomena in the world. In 1990, he begins a visually striking series of sound installations, in collaboration with Melissa Gould. Throughout these years he continues to write a significant amount of music for acoustic instruments. TEACHING From 1975-80 taught vocal improvisation at the Accademia Nazionale d'Arte Drammatica (Rome) and since 1991 has been the Milhaud Professor of Composition at Mills College in Oakland, California.
