A virtually complete collection of composer Alvin Lucier's major works from 1965 to 1977, interspersed with twelve interviews with the composer by Douglas Simon. Each score is written in prose and may be read by musicians as instructions for performance or by general readers as descriptions of imaginary musical activities. In response to Simon's searching questions, Lucier expands on each composition, not only explaining its genesis and development but also revealing its importance to the vigorously experimental American tradition to which Alvin Lucier belongs. Many of his compositions jolt conventional notions of the role of composer, performer, and listener, and the spaces in which they play and listen. His works are scored for an astonishing range of instruments: sea shells, subway stations, toy crickets, sonar guns, violins, synthesizers, bird calls and Bunsen burners. Book OUT OF STOCK
Music for Solo Performer
The first work in history to use brain waves to generate sound. It was composed during the Winter of 1964-65 with the technical assistance of physicist Edmond Dewan. The first performance was on May 5, 1965, at the Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University with the encouragement and participation of composer John Cage. Since then, it has been performed many times by Alvin Lucier in solo concerts and on tours in Europe and America with the Sonic Arts Union. Item number LUA-R-1; 12" LP record OUT OF STOCK

American composer Alvin Lucier has a unique reputation for work with the physicality of sound. In May 1995 he visited London to perform at the LMC Festival. Michael Parsons, composer, performer and longterm Lucier fan, interviewed him between soundcheck and performance. Michael Parsons: Alvin, when I first heard that you were going to be in London and were going to do a solo performance, the first piece that I thought of was the piece that you're best known for, the one that uses enormously amplified brain-wave patterns, "Music For Solo Performer". Alvin Lucier: Well you know, that's a very old piece, I did that in 1965, and that's really my breakthrough work I think. It's the piece that established for me a way of working and a way of thinking. And I performed it several times, and then for years I didn't perform it. But lately, the last five or six years, people have been asking me for that piece. Which is really interesting and wonderful because when you get a little older like I am, you begin to wonder about the length of time that your work is going to be interesting to people. And I play it maybe in situations that I shouldn't, that don't give me enough time really to set it up right. It's a fairly complicated piece, it has to have the right equipment and it has to be tuned right, you just can't arrive somewhere and do it. MP: It's a very complicated set-up with all the percussion instruments...

23. Alvin Lucier- Music On A Long Thin Wire
Interview with composer alvin lucier.
Alvin Lucier on "Music On A Long Thin Wire" Q: What are your thoughts on the piece, looking back at it today? I just installed it in Germany in a big church high above the audience in the altar. It was very long- I don't know how many meters. It just sounded wonderful, better than almost I've ever heard. Do I think it stands up over time? I think it does. It's got this other-worldly quality about it. I can't see the wire very well. You can if it's installed in a gallery, three or four feet above the ground. We had it installed high above a church and you could barely see it, depending on the light that came in during the day or the lighting at night. This quality, this amazing sound which is always moving, always changing, you don't see how it's produced but you know it isn't on tape. It doesn't have that lifeless quality of sounds on tape. You know, the live organism.
Q: Could you talk about the genesis of the original piece? I was sharing an acoustics class here at Wesleyn with a physics instructor. We were doing the Pythagorian experiment with a monochord on a table. We had an electro-magnet that was driving the string and an oscillator. It was sort of a cut-and-dry sound experiment. I just got the idea to extend that in size- to have an really extraordinary long wire would really generate something amazing. When I started making the piece, I just didn't bother to do any analysis or learning about the wire tension, mass and weight. I just set it up between a couple of tables and discovered that the imperfection of the way it was installed made a very interesting and wonderful sound. It was always changing. That's the interesting thing about it- it isn't fixed like a string on a piano. It's subject to all kind of internal and external things.

24. Alvin Lucier - Biography
alvin lucier was born in 1931 in Nashua, New Hampshire. He was educatedin Nashua public and parochial schools, the Portsmouth Abbey
Alvin Lucier was born in 1931 in Nashua, New Hampshire. He was educated in Nashua public and parochial schools, the Portsmouth Abbey School, Yale, and Brandeis and spent two years in Rome on a Fulbright Scholarship. From 1962 to 1970 he taught at Brandeis, where he conducted the Brandeis University Chamber Chorus which devoted much of its time to the performance of new music. Since 1970 he has taught at Wesleyan University where he is John Spencer Camp Professor of Music. Lucier has pioneered in many areas of music composition and performance, including the notation of performers' physical gestures, the use of brain waves in live performance, the generation of visual imagery by sound in vibrating media, and the evocation of room acoustics for musical purposes. His recent works include a series of sound installations and works for solo instruments, chamber ensembles, and orchestra in which, by means of close tunings with pure tones, sound waves are caused to spin through space. Mr. Lucier performs, lectures and exhibits his sound installations extensively in the United States, Europe and Asia. He has visited Japan twice: in 1988 he performed at the Abiko Festival, Tokyo, and installed MUSIC ON A LONG THIN WIRE in Kyoto; in 1992 he toured with pianist Aki Takahashi, performing in Kawasaki, Yamaguchi and Yokohama. In 1990-91 he was a guest of the DAAD Kunstler Program in Berlin. In January 1992, he performed in Delhi, Madras, and Bombay, and during the summer of that year was guest composer at the Time of Music Festival in Vitaasari, Finland. He regularly contributes articles to books and periodicals. His own book, Chambers, written in collaboration with Douglas Simon, was published by the Wesleyan University Press. In addition, several of his works are available on Cramps (Italy), Disques Montaigne, Source, Mainstream, CBS Odyssey, Nonesuch, and Lovely Music Records.

Artist: LUCIER, ALVIN Title: Bird and Person Dyning Label: CRAMPS (ITALY) Format: CD Price: Catalog #: CRSCD 111 "Consisting of two pieces from Lucier's early tenure at Wesleyan (where he still teaches today, along with fellow electronic miscreant Ron Kuivila and Anthony Braxton) in the early to mid 1970s. 'Bird and Person Dyning' (1975) most likely refers to the principle(s) of heterodyning, 'alternating currents of two different frequencies that are combined to produce two new frequencies, the sum and difference of the original frequencies'. This makes sense given the involved transformation of electronic bird calls into 24 minutes of high pitched resonant oscillations and variations, potentially hearing-damaging given the proper presentation space/system. 'The Duke of York' (1972) applies this same principle to the human voice (Lucier's own colloquial mish-mash) although to a far less gripping effect. It's been rumoured that Lucier himself disowns these two recordings, based on God knows what." Hrvatski. Limited stock.

Transcript of Alvin Lucier Seminar back Alvin Lucier: I always try to start in a different way than I usually do. I always end up starting the same way. [Laughs] Perhaps I should tell you a little bit of where I came from, because you all, in some way or another, are going through the same thing. No matter where you come from, you're on a quest or a journey to find out who you are in terms of what kind of music you will make. Aren't you going through that, discovering your style, if you want to call it that? Petr Kotik: When was that? Lucier: Summer of 1961. I didn't know what, to make of it. I didn't know what it was. But it stuck in my mind. I hope these stories are not too boring but you'll go through similar experiences. I came home and didn't have any ideas because all my preconceptions had been eliminated. I couldn't continue writing neoclassical music, which I had been writing earlier. We all loved Stravinsky. He was easy to imitate (badly). I felt terrible because I was supposed to be a composer and I didn't have any ideas. Around 1964 I met Edmund Dewan, a scientist who was doing brain wave research for the United States government. He was an amateur organist and had a huge organ that took up practically all the room in his house. There were aircraft pilots who would black out at certain times when flying. The slowness of the propellers, particularly when they were landing, would catch the sunlight and lock on to some visual rhythm causing mild epileptic fits. He was asked to see if he could find anything out about that.

alvin lucier THOUGHTS ON INSTALLATIONS Even though I love amplification,I don't like to talk in front of people amplified I don't know why.
Even though I love amplification, I don't like to talk in front of people amplified - I don't know why. On the other hand, it means that I can talk softly. I was on a panel last week in New York and the composer Henry Brant said how he hated amplification. He was doing a piece for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and I asked him how many players there were in the orchestra. He said a hundred and ten. I said that sounded like amplification to me. Then I said that when I was a student in the Fifties and Sixties and I came home from Rome - I had been living there for two years on a Fulbright, I went to all the music festivals, including Darmstadt and Venice, and heard all these instrumental and orchestral pieces - it struck me that in the United States at that time there was little opportunity for a composer to have his works played. I lived in Boston, but the idea that the Boston Symphony would ask me to write them a piece seemed very remote. I'll never forget the experience of hearing John Cage and David Tudor for the first time. Tudor would have a table of electronics. It was his little orchestra. He could perform his music by himself. For me at that time this was extremely interesting and very important. You didn't have to rely on established musical institutions such as the symphony orchestra. Tudor made all his devices with inexpensive electronic components, everything he used was home-made. That was very inspiring. The development of experimental music in the United States, that phase of it anyway, started with David Tudor's table of electronics.
