Max Neuhaus, Fontana Mix - Feed



The legendary Max Neuhaus channels John Cage with his multiple realizations of Fontana Mix. Through amplification, experimentation and spatial awareness, Neuhaus constructs a nearly uncontrollable piece in which ambient drone and harsh noise feed off the sonic patterns of surrounding space, creating a cataclysmic collision of sound. The music is forceful and seems to resides not only within your speakers but in your head, utilizing all free space, including your mind space, to augment the humming, vibrating and roaring sounds that intertwine. Prepare for brilliant feedback.

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."

Sonorama

RADIO SERIES

A series of programs produced by the composer Elliott Sharp from his own collection of works that have influenced, energized, or otherwise occupied his earspace and imagination; from African chanting to Japanese noise to avant-garde concert music. Many of the segments were assembled for the former radio station of P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (now MoMA/PS1) between 2004 and 2006.
