La Monte Young essay (77-78 Contact Magazine)


366-1.jpg

From Melafoundation Digest Number 364

Hello.

I wanted to alert folks to a well written, well researched, interesting essay on La Monte Young's work. The piece, by Dave Smith, was first published in 1977-78 in the British magazine Contact, edited by Keith Potter. It's recently been been put online on a website sponsored by the Journal of Experimental Music Studies (JEMS).

Author Dave Smith is a composer, performer, director and Lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire and is on the editorial board of JEMS. He was a member of a piano duo with John Lewis; current member of the Gavin Bryars Ensemble. Probably best known for his series of Piano Concerts: full-length concerts of single works or collections of works linked by style or idea.

The article is here.

cheers,
michelle nagai

THE FESTIVAL: This gala fest will span five days and be packed to the gills with stimuli: the second stage, films, odd-costumed performers, label reps, lights, freaks will give it a real festival vibe. The esteemed Empty Bottle club has hosted everything from the largest indie bands to the most respected free-jazz mavens (with its celebrated jazz series) The club is split into two main rooms, the entrance room, where the second stage will reside; and the main room where the crowd is splt into two major areas to the left and in front of the stage.

The fest is curated by Plastic Crimewave aka Steve Krakow, featured in Mojo, The Wire, Arthur and Stop Smiling, creator of the Galactic Zoo Dossier (lysergic rock mag published by Drag City, now in a book collection), record label owner (Galactic Zoo Disk), acid-punk rocker (Plastic Crimewave Sound), Japan psychedelic underground collaborator, illustrator, etc.

The common theme of the fest is really just the best in current and past underground sounds, from folky minstrels to the noisegods of Japan, all with that experimental and/or "psychedelic" edge. Many bands are appearing in Chicago for the first time; in many cases this is their first visit to the US! The festival's complete schedule is available at the Empty Bottle website.
