Charlemagne Palestine, Holy 1 & Holy 2



Holy 1 and Holy 2 were both created and recorded by Charlemagne Palestine in NYC in 1967 by building up a texture, oscillator by oscillator, then adding tiny increments of white noise that would "gradually make the sounds thicker and thicker until they were immense sacred machines humming like gargantuan Tibetan bees." This is the track for the first 35 minutes or so of this program.



In 1969 the Free Music Store of radio station WBAI asked Palestine to create a piece for an event they were preparing to broadcast live on radio. This is the second part of this show and features Tony Conrad on his Long String Drone, saxophonist Bob Feldman on chimes and a conch, soprano Deborah Glaser, and Palestine on another homemade instrument called the Alumonium. The piece evolved into the work known as Alloy and the sound used as the electronic background continuum, played through loudspeakers in the hall, was Holy1&2. Our thanks to segment producer, John Duncan. (59 minutes)
