Three rather meditative pieces from the repertoire of “Ars Acustica”, but nevertheless: Fluxus! The New York-born artists whose radio plays are collected on this CD, Philip Corner, Alison Knowles, and George Brecht, have appeared together in performances, and they are also connected by their relationship to John Cage’s aesthetic, by work with chance operations, and by Zen. Explaining Fluxus is like wanting to hold a river in your hand.
UbuWeb Sound - Fluxsweet,
Performed Monday, February 14, 2005 at Harvestworks, NYC
Organized by Taketo Shimada
R for Roskilde, Shoes of Your Choice etc. by Alison Knowles 2005
Alison Knowles’ performance took place in the Viking Ship Hall of the Viking Ship Museum located on the edge of the waterfront. The close proximity to the ocean prompted Knowles to pipe the sound of the ocean into the performance space using a bucket and a microphone. The steady rhythm of the ocean became a backdrop to Alison Knowles’ reading from her work Natural Assemblages and the True Crow while her daughter Hannah Higgins was hanging objects on a frame and making a found art shadow show.
