Some typical Cage genius/madness!

This two-CD set celebrating John Cage features works by various luminaries in the international avant-garde circle performing works by or in memoriam of the iconoclastic composer John Cage.

Programmed to random play by the listener qua co-creator and mixed with whatever other sounds the listener brings to the listening space and whatever sounds happen to be present, the album becomes what Cage calls “real music,” not a relic of music: One hundred and forty-one minutes of 183 pieces of 23 works, in any order, with any other sounds!

The irony will not be lost on fans of Cage’s work that a recorded tribute album for a composer who disliked the recorded medium is at best a strange tribute. But that said, considering the uniqueness of the collection — and indeed the clout of the listed performers — even the most orthodox of Cage disciples will be pleased with this recording.

Performances range from David Tudor’s electronic explorations to Patrick Moraz’s performance of Cage’s “Dances for Prepared Piano.” Laurie Anderson is featured reading texts by Cage over her own compositions on several tracks, and these add a fair amount of unity to this sprawling collection.

The final work on this recording is entitled “New York City” and is an ambient recording of the environment outside Cage’s apartment.

Some would say that Frank Zappa’s participation alone in this project, featuring his rendition of Cage’s infamous 4′33″, is worth looking into.

Laurie Anderson is one of today’s premier performance artists. Known primarily for her multimedia presentations she has cast herself in roles as varied as visual artist, composer, poet, photographer, filmmaker, electronics whiz, vocalist, and instrumentalist.

O Superman launched Anderson’s recording career in 1980, rising to number two on the British pop charts and subsequently appearing on Big Science, the first of her seven albums on the Warner Brothers label. Other record releases include Mister Heartbreak, United States Live, Strange Angels, Bright Red, and the soundtrack to her feature film Home of the Brave. A deluxe box set of her Warner Brothers output, Talk Normal, was released in the fall of 2000 on Rhino/Warner Archives. In 2001, Anderson released her first record for Nonesuch Records, entitled Life on a String, which was followed by Live in New York, recorded at Town Hall in New York City in September 2001, and released in May 2002.

Anderson has collaborated with William Burroughs, Arto Lindsay, Bill Laswell, Ian Ritchie, Peter Gabriel, Perry Hoberman, David Sylvian, Jean Michel Jarre, Brian Eno, Nona Hendryx, Bobby McFerrin, Dave Stewart, Peter Laurence Gordon, Hector Zazou, and Lou Reed. She also worked with comedian Andy Kaufman in the late 1970s.

As a composer, Anderson has contributed music to films by Wim Wenders and Jonathan Demme; dance pieces by Bill T. Jones, Trisha Brown, Molissa Fenley, and a score for Robert LePage’s theater production, Far Side of the Moon. She has created pieces for National Public Radio, The BBC, and Expo ‘92 in Seville.

Recognized worldwide as a groundbreaking leader in the use of technology in the arts, Anderson collaborated with Interval Research Corporation, a research and development laboratory founded by Paul Allen and David Liddle, in the exploration of new creative tools, including the Talking Stick. She created the introduction sequence for the first segment of the PBS special Art 21, a series about Art in the 21st century. Her awards include the 2001 Tenco Prize for Songwriting in San Remo, Italy and the 2001 Deutsche Schallplatten prize for Life On A String as well as grants from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.

In 2002, Anderson was appointed the first artist-in-residence of NASA out of which she developed her solo performance “The End of the Moon” which premiered in 2004 and toured internationally through 2006. Other recent projects include a commission to create a series of audio-visual installations and a high definition film, Hidden Inside Mountains, for the World Expo 2005 in Aichi, Japan and a series of programs for French radio called “Rien dans les Poches/Nothing in my Pockets”. Her score for Trisha Brown’s acclaimed piece “O Composite” premiered at the Opera Garnier in Paris in December 2004. Anderson was also part of the team that created the opening ceremony for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. Currently she is working on a series of documented walks, a new album for Nonesuch Records, “Homeland”, and an accompanying touring performance. Anderson lives in New York City.

Lou Reed & Laurie Anderson – Hitched!

So Lou ties the knot with Laurie Anderson, at the sprightly age of 66!

Of course, he was wed before, in 1980, to Sylvia Morales. You really would expect people to learn more and not go through the horror of marriage any more than once! ( Oh! … Sorry honey! I don’t really mean that! Put the rolling pin down! Every day married to you is a dream (albeit a dark dream betimes!))

The electroconvulsive therapy Reed received in his teen years, allegedly in response to his homosexual behaviour (as referred to in his 1974 track “Kill Your Sons”), must’ve worked!

I’m totally convinced anyway!


Lou Reed Marries Partner Laurie Anderson In Secret Ceremony

Lou Reed married his long term partner, Laurie Anderson, in a private ceremony in Colorado earlier this month, it’s been confirmed.

Lou Reed Marries Partner Laurie Anderson In Secret Ceremony

The couple tied the knot on April 12th but news of their marriage only became public as celebrations moved to New York this week.

Reed, formerly of Velvet Underground, and Anderson have been together since 1995, reports the Guardian.

Anderson, who is most famous for her performance art, has collaborated with Reed on a number of occasions, including, his 2003 concept project ‘The Raven’.

The couple’s private party, held at the home of photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, was attended by a number of cultural icons, including, actors Richard Belzer and Hal Willner.
