Alvin Lucier
Orpheus Variations

Alvin Lucier here continues to compose for the excellent cellist Charles Curtis. Orpheus Variations is drawn from a sonority from a Stravinsky piece, though presented here in rather more abstract context. Curtis’ cello weaves through a seven-part wind ensemble (here, the SEM Ensemble conducted by Petr Kotik), creating amazing waveform effects in that unique Lucier style. Out on Important Records.

Alvin Lucier
Ricochet Lady

Alvin Lucier composed Ricochet Lady in 2016. It is made up of four pieces, played on acoustic glockenspiel by Trevor Saint. Lucier composed the pieces with the intention of exploring sound by having each of the four pieces played in different environments, thus getting a different acoustic response from each performance. Digipak CD on Black Truffle, featuring liner notes by Lucier and Saint.

So You (Hermes, Orpheus, Eurydice)

Best known for I Am Sitting in a Room, US composer, installation artist and almost-nonagenarian Alvin Lucier continues to add to his great body of work. New recording So You… (Hermes, Orpheus, Eurydice) is an hour-long parallel to poet H.D.’s interpretation of the Orpheus myth. Jessika Kenney, Anthony Burr, Charles Curtis and Tom Erbe assist to flesh out the work’s focus on resonant chambers and interference patterns.

Alvin Lucier
Criss Cross / Hanover

The composer, best known for his 1970  tape piece I Am Sitting in a Room, composed Criss-Cross for the twin electric guitars of Stephen O’Malley and Oren Ambarchi. Each player e-bows a single semitone, alternately rising and falling in pitch, revealing a surprising variety of tonal effects and phenomena. Hanover employs similar techniques played by an ensemble of saxes, electric guitars, piano, bowed vibes and viola. Innovative and beautifully strange music based on elegant concepts from a minimalist master.
