La Monte Young / Marian Zazeela / The Theatre Of DREAM HOUSE 78'17 Vinyl Record
Limited vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. This classic minimal music album is now available again on vinyl for the first time since the '70s. La Monte Young, widely acknowledged as the father of musical minimalism, is one of the most influential contemporary composers. Yet he has strictly monitored his own discography and his music is rarely heard. This LP, initially issued on the French Shandar label in 1973, is a crucial document, preserving two manifestations of Young's pioneering creative imagination. The first side contains a performance by the Theatre of Eternal Music in which the voices of Young and his partner Marian Zazeela are combined with the trombone of Garrett List and the trumpet of Jon Hassell. Although the immediate impression created by the music is that it changes little, close listening reveals intricate activity in the high harmonics where unexpected patterns and phantom melodies skitter across the surface of the music's enveloping drone. Unadorned sine waves form the Drift Study on the second side of the LP. To a seated listener this Drift Study seems a very pure form of minimalist musical drone, but if one moves around the space in which the piece is playing, dramatic variation in the loudness of different frequencies will become apparent, while the listener's movement will itself alter the structure of air molecules in the room, affecting the way the piece is heard. It's a fascinating probe into the nature of sound, hearing, and spatial awareness.
