From Melafoundation Digest Number 364
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.
