Here a continuation of my absolutely incomplete choice of historical sound works, and also some miscellaneous issues.  

 


 

FREEDOM TO SOUND*

 

 

Steve Reich: It's Gonna Rain, 1965

 

 

 

Fluxus Anthology, Zona Archives, 1989

 

 

 

John Cage performing Water Walk in a  TV show, 1960

 

 

 

Charlemagne Palestine's ecstatic Strumming Music in 1974: Bösendorfer's resonance at its best!

 

 

 

The same artist more than 40 eccentric years later

 

 

 

Menno Aden: Panel Flat, 2014 (excerpt)

 

 

 

Laurie Anderson: Song for Juanita, first performed in 1977. A language piece for tape-bow violin, voice and piano

 

 

 

A nice compilation of the threatening chord rhythms in the first part of Stravinsky's Le Sacre.

 

 

 

And again and again the wonderful freedom to music of the genius Jacques Offenbach!
