David Linton, Bicameral Research Cortical Degausser



This program features an audio mix produced by the artist David Linton from the soundtrack to his Bicameral Research Cortical Degausser installation, created for the Clocktower Gallery in late 2011. The intensely immersive sensory experience of the audio and video driven installation was generated by shifting, pulsating, synchronous sound and colored light patterns and hallucinatory effects. Guest musicians, who appear mixed in to this hour long sample, added a live performance element. Tracks by David First (guitar), David Watson (bagpipes), Hahn Rowe (violin), and Sam Hillmer (saxophone) have been woven into the source track. This project was made possible by a grant from mediaThe Foundation.

Experimental Composers

RADIO SERIES

The object of this series is to invite emerging and established innovators to share their work. These programs are usually a combination of an interview with a far-reaching perspective on the artist's career, some recordings illustrating this history, and something new. Open territory. The unfortunate and unintended messages that come attached to a title like Experimental Composers are many. Still it is one of the few labels to come out of the world of music that has not been co-opted by promoters, corporations, journalists, or lawyers. This one just seems to have anti-market goo on it. Hooray. It's also just bad English (as if to imply that these poor souls are themselves, in their flesh and blood, some kind of experiment and, perhaps, even expendable). And then there is the spectre of defying the wisdom of the great Edgar Varèse who said something like, "I do not write experimental music. My experimenting is done before I make the music. Afterwards it is the listener who must experiment."
