Cage on film in The Revenge of the Dead Indians: In Memoriam John Cage

Hello Silencers

You might be interested in the latest John Cage related release on Mode Records. It is available now for $19.99 plus shipping ($4 in the USA). For overseas orders, please see shipping details at http://moderecords.com/order.html

In my opinion, this is a really wonderful film which shows interviews with Cage speaking on many subjects that you don't typically hear from him as well as how  his thought has influenced everyone from musicians and artists, scientists and theoriticians to the man in the street. And, not to missed is the Cage-Lohner filmed version of 4'33" from Berlin (presented in its entirety).

Best regards
Brian Brandt

Director Henning Lohner worked with John Cage during his later years, including collaborating with Cage on his only film, One11. During that time, Lohner filmed interviews and footage with Cage, and after Cage’s death decided to assemble some of it into this unique “composed film” based on musical principles — a tribute to Cage, his thoughts, music and influence.
• The film also features 42 personalities – from the well known (actors, architects, artists, choreographers, composers, theoreticians, writers) to the unknown (like street cleaners and market vendors) – in "virtual" conversation with each other. The result is an unexpected and fascinating combination of intellectual thought, viewpoints and opinions.
• Originally aired on German television, "The Revenge of the Dead Indians" receives its first commercial release here.
• “The Revenge of the Dead Indians” is neither documentary nor feature film. The thematic story development is a combination of “found” video and audio landscapes along with theatrically directed readings and interviews. Each scene of the film is complete in itself as its own narrative entity, yet simultaneously contributes to the linear progression of the story line.
• Lohner’s goal was to honor the creative credo of composer John Cage, to whom the film is dedicated. Attention is paid to “forgotten” landscapes: places we overlook because they are the everyday and the ordinary.
• Concert performances incorporated in the film were recorded live during the “Musicircus” homage at Symphony Space in New York, November 1, 1992, and at the John Cage music festival at the “Akademie der Schönen Künste” in East Berlin, August 1, 1990.
• This sound and visual material was edited to more than 1200 cuts before the final film length of 130 minutes was reached. The shortest scene has the duration of exactly one frame, the longest scene has the duration of exactly 4 minutes, 33 seconds.
 
ADDITIONAL FEATURES:
• The film incorporates a complete video performance of Cage’s infamous silent piece 4’33”, created in Berlin by Cage and Lohner.
• Henning Lohner and Van Carlson in Conversation: created especially for this DVD. The director and cinematographer speak about their collaboration on this film, along with a commentary track (approx. 20 minutes).

Mode Bulletin 7.08

Welcome to Mode's Seventh Bulletin of 2008. It has been some time since our last Bulletin. This is because of a computer crash which caused a loss of Mode's database, much of which has now been restored. Our apologies to anyone who receives multiple Bulletins or had asked to be removed from our mailing list. Please contact us and we will try to fix any problems.

Because of the delay in Bulletins, we have four new releases to announce (please scroll down for more details):
• Lou HARRISON: Por Gitaro: Suites for Tuned Guitars (mode 195,CD)
• Iannis XENAKIS: Kraanerg (mode 196, CD or surround sound DVD)
• THE REVENGE OF THE DEAD INDIANS: IN MEMORIAM JOHN CAGE,  a composed film by Henning Lohner with an all-star cast (mode 197, DVD only)

John Schneider, guitars
with Just Strings: T.J. Troy, Gene Sterling and Erin Barnes, percussion


• Even though Lou Harrison rhapsodized about the “dulcet tones”of the guitar, for much of his career he refused to write for it. The problem was that the guitar’s straight, fixed frets resulted in the tuning system known as equal temperament, while Harrison preferred the crystalline purity of harmony found in the types of tuning known as just intonation. In the 1970s, Harrison learned of a guitar with removable fingerboards, allowing the player to simply swap out fingerboards refretted with different tunings.
• Energized by this innovation, Harrison completed the first works for just-intoned guitar: the Serenade for Guitar and Optional Percussion in 1978.
• He began the next work in the series, the Ditone Suite, but grew impatient trying to acquire the necessary fingerboards. Two and a half movements into the suite, he reluctantly turned away from his ambitious guitar project, adapting the Ditone Suite movements for his String Quartet Set.
• In 1981, the guitarist John Schneider met with Harrison and played his first arrangements of his harp works for just intonation guitar. With Harrison’s authorization and encouragement, Schneider began adapting some of Harrison’s other works into suites.
• This is the first complete recording of the reconstructed Suites and of the Ditone Set.
• The first recording of In Honor of the Divine Mister Handel in the version for guitar and gamelan.
• The recordings were made in Harrison’s straw bale house in Joshua Tree, California, where the house’s main hall was intended for musical performances.
• Latin Grammy™ nominated guitarist, composer, author and broadcaster John Schneider is a specialist in contemporary music, and Director of the ensembles Just Strings, Partch, and founding artistic director of MicroFest. His weekly radio program The Global Village can be heard at www.kpfk.org.

Mode 196  Xenakis Edition Volume 8
Iannis Xenakis: KRAANERG (1968)
for 23 instruments and 4-channel tape
Available as CD and surround-sound video DVD (mode 196).

Callithumpian Consort
Stephen Drury, conductor

First recording with restored analog tape

“It is a wonderful piece of music, enthralling, and one that grips the mind and the heart… (it) is one of the major ballet scores of the century”.
— Clive Barnes, New York Times, 1968

Kraanerg is one of Xenakis’ most popular — and infamous — works. A visceral and highly charged score for woodwinds, brass, and strings along with quadrophonic tape. The title, Kraanerg, is a composite of two Greek words: “kraan”, meaning to perfect, to accomplish; and “erg”, signifying energy.
• Commissioned for the gala opening of the National Arts Centre (NAC) in Ottawa, Canada in 1968, Kraanerg originally was the score to a ballet choreographed by Roland Petit with “op-art” sets by Victor Vasarely.
• According to Xenakis’ program notes, the title also referred to the “current youth movements” — 1968 was a significant year in modern social history — and to his utopian vision of the upcoming “biological struggle between generations unfurling all over the planet, destroying existing political, social, urban, scientific, artistic and ideological frameworks on a scale never before attempted by humanity.” This powerful statement can be felt in the music.
• The dramatic 4-channel tape is derived from a recording of the orchestra, where it is transformed and distorted. Its sonic textures kaleidoscopically expand the range of expression while at the same time remaining connected to the instrumental material.
• The 4-channel tape has been restored for this release from high-resolution transfers of the analog masters, revealing greater details in the texture and a wider dynamic range than previously heard on any Kraanerg recording. 
• 96khz/24-bit high resolution recording.
• Liner notes by composer James Harley.

SPECIAL DVD FEATURES
• First surround-sound release of Kraanerg.
• Presented with full video of the performance interpolated with abstract interpretations created by filmmaker Tim Chu.
• Mode returned to the 4-track analog tapes and remastered them for this release — revealing previously unheard detail, clarity and extended low-end frequencies.
• First recording to strictly respect the silences indicated in Xenakis’ score.
• Interview on Kraanerg’s history featuring Xenakis expert James Harley with Gerard Pape (director of Xenakis’ CCMIX studio 1991-2008), Françoise Xenakis (the composer’s wife, author and media personality), and Veronica Tennant (a lead dancer in the ballet’s premiere). [26 minutes]
• Additional documentary on Kraanerg’s tape with German electronic composer Daniel Teige, with musical examples. [12 minutes]

Woman, Viola and Crow  (2004) 
Two Beacons  (2005) 
Tentative Thoughts, Silenced Voices  (2002-3) 
Ghosts Again  (2004-5) 

• Frank Denyer’s music doesn’t adhere to any easily-defined aesthetic prescripts, and the four recent works on this disc resist categorization and ready comparison to the work of other composers.
• The music on this CD is far from abstract, and the titles of the four works suggest as much — being rich in imagery and association and yet resistant to simple narrative interpretation. 
• Sonically, the four works share a common sense of intimacy. They inhabit an extremely quiet sound world. They place as great an importance on the level of nuance — in the strange quality of a particular microtonal interval, or a delicate shading of timbre, or a novel combination of instrumental and vocal sound — as they do on long melodic lines or large-scale formal structures.
• In these pieces there are resonances (both sonic and associational) of sounds from the real world, or perhaps from dreams: breathing sounds (sometimes calm, sometimes sharp and disturbing intakes of breath); footsteps; knocking sounds; a crow call. These sounds exist on a kind of threshold, not immediately registering as music, and they subtly dislodge our listening from its familiar habits. The conventional instruments used here — violin, viola, flute, clarinet — hardly ever sound as they normally do, largely because the sounds they make are so soft, so disembodied, that they seem like voices of a post-holocaust civilization. Occasional fragments of melody drift past, seeming at times like imperfectly remembered snatches of something familiar.
• All four works present combinations of instruments that have rarely if ever been heard together before, offering totally fresh sonic images.
• Liner notes by Bob Gilmore.

Director Henning Lohner worked with John Cage during his later years, including collaborating with Cage on his only film, One11. During that time, Lohner filmed interviews and footage with Cage, and after Cage’s death decided to assemble some of it into this unique “composed film” based on musical principles — a tribute to Cage, his thoughts, music and influence.
• The film also features 42 personalities – from the well known (actors, architects, artists, choreographers, composers, theoreticians, writers) to the unknown (like street cleaners and market vendors) – in "virtual" conversation with each other. The result is an unexpected and fascinating combination of intellectual thought, viewpoints and opinions.
• Revealing and unique interview footage with John Cage.
• Originally aired on German television, "The Revenge of the Dead Indians" receives its first commercial release here.
• “The Revenge of the Dead Indians” is neither documentary nor feature film. The thematic story development is a combination of “found” video and audio landscapes along with theatrically directed readings and interviews. Each scene of the film is complete in itself as its own narrative entity, yet simultaneously contributes to the linear progression of the story line.
• Lohner’s goal was to honor the creative credo of composer John Cage, to whom the film is dedicated. Attention is paid to “forgotten” landscapes: places we overlook because they are the everyday and the ordinary.
• Concert performances incorporated in the film were recorded live during the “Musicircus” homage at Symphony Space in New York, November 1, 1992, and at the John Cage music festival at the “Akademie der Schönen Künste” in East Berlin, August 1, 1990.

• Frank Denyer’s music doesn’t adhere to any easily-defined aesthetic prescripts, and the four recent works on this disc resist categorization and ready comparison to the work of other composers.
• The music on this CD is far from abstract, and the titles of the four works suggest as much — being rich in imagery and association and yet resistant to simple narrative interpretation. 
• Sonically, the four works share a common sense of intimacy. They inhabit an extremely quiet sound world. They place as great an importance on the level of nuance — in the strange quality of a particular microtonal interval, or a delicate shading of timbre, or a novel combination of instrumental and vocal sound — as they do on long melodic lines or large-scale formal structures.
• In these pieces there are resonances (both sonic and associational) of sounds from the real world, or perhaps from dreams: breathing sounds (sometimes calm, sometimes sharp and disturbing intakes of breath); footsteps; knocking sounds; a crow call. These sounds exist on a kind of threshold, not immediately registering as music, and they subtly dislodge our listening from its familiar habits. The conventional instruments used here — violin, viola, flute, clarinet — hardly ever sound as they normally do, largely because the sounds they make are so soft, so disembodied, that they seem like voices of a post-holocaust civilization. Occasional fragments of melody drift past, seeming at times like imperfectly remembered snatches of something familiar.
• All four works present combinations of instruments that have rarely if ever been heard together before, offering totally fresh sonic images.
• Liner notes by Bob Gilmore.

A new book on John Cage's Prepared Piano

Hi there!


I'd like to notify all those interested in reading about John Cage's prepared piano that my book John Cage's Prepared Piano: The Nuts & Bolts is finally going to print, with expected date of release July 30th.

The book, in its dissertation form, won the University of Auckland Doctoral Thesis Award for 2007. 

At this moment, there is a page on my website (here is a link to it: www.tzenkadianova.com/preorder-book.htm) where the book can be pre-ordered. Those who choose to do so will be notified when the book is available for purchase and will be redirected to the publisher's website. On the pre-order page there is a short synopsis of the book + two sample pages (table of contents).

Regards,
Tzenka Dianova

Quartets I-VIII/Harmonies, Tunes, Etc. from AH '76

Hey everyone, 


I was wondering how John was able to create the "subtractions" for the harmonies for Apartment House 1776. Did he use I Ching chance operations, or did he simply elongate or shorten the notes of the hymn tunes as he pleased? Another question: in regards to actually playing  both Quartets I-VIII and the supplementary material from Apartment House 1776, is it sent it conventional notation (that is, is it actually written out in parts that follow the rhythmic structure)? Is it possible, as The Arditti Quartet did, to arrange the supplementary material from Apartment House 1776 to fit other instruments as well? I have a feeling Cage would have applied the indeterminacy of instrumentation rule to this piece as well. 

What are the Tunes? So far I've only heard of drum cadences, the 44 Harmonies, and the two Imitations

Any clarification as to the subject would be most welcome

JG

NEW ON MODE FOR JUNE:  

Spellbound! 
Lydia Kavina plays original works for Theremin

mode 199 (Enhanced CD)

Free Music #2  for six theremins
Beatless Music  for four theremins

Ensemble Sospeso conducted by Charles Peltz

As a follow-up to her first CD of original theremin works, “Music from the Ether”, Lydia Kavina returns with first recordings of major works for theremin and ensemble.
• 3 premiere recordings of works by Howard Shore, Olga Neuwirth and Christian Wolff.
• The first recording of Miklos Rosza’s chamber version of music from the Hitchcock film “Spellbound”.
• 2 premiere recordings of graphically notated works for multiple theremins by Percy Grainger.
• Oscar winning composer Howard Shore (“Lord of the Rings”) created his suite from the movie “Ed Wood” especially for Kavina, who performed on the original movie soundtrack.
• Leading Austrian composer Olga Neuwirth created this suite from her opera “Bahläams Fest” for Kavina, who performed in the opera’s premiere.
• Christian Wolff wrote “Exercise 58” especially for this project.
• Shore and Wolff supervised the recording and rehearsal of their works.
• This program was premiered at the 2000 Lincoln Center Summer Festival to a sold-out audience and received rave reviews.
• Liner notes by theremin expert Olivia Mattis.
• Original 96khz/24-bit high definition recording.
• Enhanced CD features a 15-minute video documentary from the recording sessions, including interviews with Kavina, Shore and Wolff.

What the critics said of the Lincoln Center concert:
“The program also included pieces derived from two film scores in which the theremin is prominent, Miklos Rozsa’s haunting “Spellbound” Concerto (1945-6) and Howard Shore’s entertainingly derivative “Ed Wood” Suite (2000). In these, and the Neuwirth, Ms. Kavina was supported by the Ensemble Sospeso’s beautifully played performances, conducted by Charles Peltz.”
—Allan Kozinn, The New York Times, July 21, 2000

“Bahläams Fest”…treated the theremin as an ensemble member, aptly combining it with strings, electric guitar, soprano saxophones and water-filled glass to reveal hitherto unsuspected possibilities for the instrument’s stereotypically eerie voice. Pianist Stephen Gosling and the Ensemble Sospeso under Charles Peltz were her deft partners in the all-theremin program.”
—Barbara Jepson, The Wall Street Journal, July 26, 2000

Muhal Richard Abrams, Roscoe Mitchell and Joseph Jarman are among the most
important personalities of avant-garde jazz. All of them started their
careers in Chicago, and since the early 1960s they have been known as the
most influential musicians in their class. As soloists and founding members
of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) and Art
Ensemble of Chicago, they collaborated with such stellar personalities, as
Dexter Gordon, Max Roach, Ruth Brown, Woody Shaw, Anthony Braxton, Henry
Threadgill, and Lester Bowie, among others.

Since the 1980s, Abrams and Mitchell have increasingly turned to the idiom
of concert music, composing pieces for classically trained musicians and
ensembles. In the early 1990s, Joseph Jarman became a master of Zen Buddhism
(studying in Japan, among other places) and is presently a Jodo Shinshu
priest, holding the rank of Ggodan (fifth degree black belt) in Aaikido. His
poem, Non-Cognitive Aspects of the City, was written in the early 1960s.

Both Buckner and Kotik have collaborated with members of the Association for
the Advancement of Creative Musicians for many years. The collaboration
between Buckner and Mitchell, which started in the late 1970s, has been
especially fruitful and produced a number of compositions and recordings.
Kotik and his New York-based SEM Orchestra began performing works by members
of AACM in 1995, including pieces by Leroy Jenkins, Roscoe Mitchell, Amina
Claudine Myers, George Lewis, Joseph Jarman, Henry Threadgill and Abrams
himself, among others. Both Roscoe Mitchell and Muhal Richard Abrams were
lecturers at Ostrava Days (2003 and 2007, respectively).

Non-Cognitive Aspects of the City

                                    I
Non-cognitive aspects of the City
where Roy J's prophecies become
the causes of children

once quiet black blocks of stone
encasements/of regularity

sweet now
intellectual dada
of vain landscapes
the city

long history
upheaval
the heath valueless in its norm
now/gravestone or gingercakes
the frail feel of winter's wanting
crying to leaves they wander
seeing the capital vision
dada
new word out of the twenties of chaos
returned in the suntan jar
fruits of education/with others

non-cognitive - these motions
embracing sidewalk heroes
the city each his own
where no one is more alone than any other
moan, it's the hip plea for see me, see me, I exist
exit the tenderness for power/black or white
no difference now/the power/city

II
Could  have  spirits among  stones
uppity  the  force  of  becoming
what  art  was  made  to  return
the  vainness  of  our  pipes,  smoking
near  fountains,  the  church  pronouncing
the  hell/  of  where  we  are

Could have spirits among stones

quiet city
wanting each to stop the/pain
it must be done ­ expresso
old fashioned sheet about boy thighs
war-their homeliness
common tools
the knife and gun
castration in store
the tarred spotlight against
what hope we have

non-cognitive
these elements of how
no more

shall it be better
the passion of other saints
ungodly
shall poison drinking hoodlum talk

to describe the callousness
of these penny fares
among/my friends they say they are
the hair torches
eggs for these deaths
internal zones of where they go
