Œuvre mythique, la Dream House est une installation lumineuse et musicale créée par La Monte Young, inventeur de l’idée de musique éternelle. La musique fait réagir de manière infime les mobiles suspendus conçus par Marian Zazeela. Pour l’auditeur, il s’agit de s’immerger littéralement dans le son pour en percevoir les nuances, une expérience invitant à la méditation, à être autant à l’écoute de soi qu’à l’écoute des sons. À l’int...

"Aubrey" on 1982 BBC TV. (Beardsley and His Work)
"Aubrey" on 1982 BBC TV. (Beardsley and His Work)

From John Coulthart's {feuilleton} blog

Back in 2008 I wrote at some length about Aubrey, an excellent BBC TV dramatisation of the last years of Aubrey Beardsley’s life written by John Selwyn Gilbert, and screened once in 1982. Mr Gilbert himself added a comment to that post in which he mentioned that he’d written and directed a documentary which was screened in tandem with the play, Beardsley and His Work. I have the documentary on tape but it’s a copy of a copy and is also missing ten minute...

Listen @NYCTAPER

It makes sense that sunn O))) are named after Sunn amps, because the many Sunn amps onstage with them get a punishing workout during their sets. Raleigh’s Memorial Auditorium proved to be one of the most challenging rooms for bands at this year’s Hopscotch Music Festival; its size and cavernous design threatened to swallow the sound of several of the acts who played there. But for the doom metal pioneers and their slow, hypnotic wall of sound, the mid-sized auditorium wa...

19 year vinyl quest provides success

This 1993 MLP was the last piece of the puzzle in my Early 90s Norwegian BM collection. Pleased that the results of the hunt ended with a barter/trade vs items of my own music! Now we can finally step away from that universe for a while...

Alan Licht on Will Oldham on Bonnie 'Prince' Billy book, published by W.W. Norton 17th September

Posted: Sep 17, 2012

Greetings,

     This Monday marks the official U.S. publication of Will Oldham on Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, all 402 pages of it. The book is in a Q & A format, edited, by me, from a series of conversations I had with Will about his career, his life, and other topics of interest. W.W. Norton is the U.S. publisher; Faber & Faber, who commissioned the book to begin with, released it in the UK last spring.

     Anyway, in trying to get people all excited about the book or at least to clue them in that...

Hydra Head Records endgame

Posted: Sep 11, 2012

Aaron, Mark, it was a pleasure to work together on some great albums and projects. 
All of my best to you both.

Thank you. 

From the HHR website.

Hydra Head Records has never been a smooth-running operation. We've spent the majority of our existence excitedly scrambling from one thing to the next, taking on more than

The decision to pull the plug has not been an easy one, and in some ways is a not a choice at all.  The simple fact of the matter is we've been running on empty for a while now and ca...

Great SUNN O))) fanmail (reference "the spirit of music in tragedy")

Posted: Sep 10, 2012

Dear Stephen O’Malley,
 
My name is Matt Roberts. I was at the Sunn concert last night in Atlanta, GA. It was truly one of the great aesthetic experiences I have ever had. I’ve been a great admirer of your work, with Sunn and as a solo artist. So it was a true privilege to be able to attend the performance.
 
I am currently working on a PhD at Emory University in Atlanta, where I study ‘avant-garde’ forms of theatre and performance, and I’ve become increasingly interested in thinking about musica...
