presents

philip corner
italian air: wind, water & metal lp
 
label: ricerca sonora
cat.: rs1
format: vinyl lp
edition: 300 copies
 
edition of 300 copies. single cover with 2 inserts.

ricerca sonora proudly presents, as its first release (rs1), a new philip corner album titled italian air: wind, water & metal (aria italiana: vento, acqua & metallo).
 
philip corner (b. 1933) studied composition with henry cowell and otto luening and musical analysis with oliver messiaen. during the 1960s and 70s he was an active member of fluxus, a founder (along with james tenney and malcolm goldstein) of the tone roads chamber ensemble, the resident musician and composer for the judson dance theatre, and co-founder of gamelan son of lion (with barbara benary and daniel goode).
 
"italian air: wind, water & metal" presents three previously unpublished compositions by philip corner recorded in various locations.

on side 1 "ear wave" (venice, october 1994) is a long piece for korean cymbal in water: an ecstatic composition recorded and played outdoor by phil corner; acousmatic interjections of metallic resonances and subtle water sounds; you can listen the distant sound of the midnight bell of san marco in venice.

on the second side the track "gong/ear" recorded in june 1990 (s.andrea di rovereto, italy) phil corner plays gong together with rain and thunder for an abstracted and strongly emotional track.

followed by i respiri/the breaths an avant-garde composition for alphorn and gong recorded in 1992 (at teatro scandicci).
 
philip corner is truly the equal of john cage in bringing us to examine what we call music and how we understand music-making.

in few words, philip corner is one of the most important figure of the american avant-garde.

biography:

ray gallon has been a communicator for over 40 years, half of that time as a radio producer and audio artist. although he had a classical music education, ray gravitated early towards the avant-garde, and was fascinated by musique concrète, electronic music, so-called progressive jazz, and the multitrack experiments of the rock revolution in the sixties. his first exposure, on television, to the work of john cage came very close to the moment when he wandered into a cinema by chance, and saw fellini’s 8 1/2. the one-two punch of these experiences left him delirious for the rest of his life.

ray studied theatre design at the university of alberta, and helped found theatre 3, edmonton’s second professional theatre company. he worked for many years in toronto as a lighting and sound designer for theatre and performance art. as a radio producer he has worked in almost every department at cbc radio except hard news. he was nurtured by glenn gould’s experiments with compositional documentaries,” and developed his own style, inspired by gould’s work. in 1980 ray moved from toronto to new york and joined with julia lee prospero and brian flahive to form the airworks group. together, they produced innovative documentary and radio art programmes for npr in the u.s. and for independent public radio distribution, most notably the airworks series of original commissioned works for radio in different disciplines. ray joined the staff of public radio station wnyc in new york as a producer, and eventually became the station’s programme manager, guiding a programme schedule built around the creativity of 20th century music, art, and drama.

in the late 80s ray’s focus turned towards new media, communications art, and computers. after moving to france in 1992, he continued to produce audio art and radio while teaching courses in new media and working as a technical communicator. ray is currently a researcher with the transformation society, and shares his life between barcelona, spain, and the languedoc region of france.

diy canons

simon wickham-smith, curator

okay. really cool, kind of fun, double cd compilation based on a work of larry polansky's. pieces are constructed from the sounds of cats, screams, midi instruments, computer, barbie phone, samples, wooden flutes, piano, bass clarinet, ringtones, metro cards, contrabass, and more. i have some of my favorites - which keep changing each time i listen to the discs. perhaps you will too. read on too get a "real" description from the curator of this project.

"the pieces on this cd are all based on the ideas in larry polansky's four voice canons, a series of pieces he began in 1975. these canons are usually "mensuration canons," which means that the tempi of successive voices is proportional to their start times, so that the voices end together. they also use simple ideas of moving through a list of permutations, and applying the elements of those permutations to various musical parameters. a set of polansky's canons was produced on cold blue records as four voice canons (cb0011).

polansky described these ideas in four voice canon #13 ("diy canon"), a kind of open-source meta-canon score. he distributed this at talks and on the web as an open invitation to others who wanted to make four voice canons of their own. composers responded with a wide variety of variations on the basic idea; a selection of these works is presented here.
" - simon wickham-smith, curator
