Imaginary Landscape:
Ingram Marshall

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 105 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFK

A live concert of music by Ingram Marshall, recorded in the KPFK studio in Los Angeles. Currently living in Connecticut, composer Ingram Marshall has lived and worked extensively in the San Francisco Bay Area. Educated at Lake Forest College, Columbia University, where he worked with Vladimir Ussachevsky, and California Institute of the Arts, where he worked with Morton Subotnick, Marshall went on to study gamelan music in Bali and Java in 1971. Over the next several years, Marshall further cultivated his interest in Indonesian music and continued the experimental work in electronic music.

Certain characteristics of Marshall's music, such as the slowed-down sense of time and use of melodic repetition, can be traced to his study of Indonesian music. In the mid-1970s Marshall began work on a number of pieces that combined the traditional Balinese flute called a gambuh with electronics and tape delay systems. The best known of these works was his “Fragility Cycles” which is heard in its entirety in this concert. Marshall also maintained an interest in tape sound compositions and received a Fulbright Fellowship making possible a visit to Sweden in 1976 during which he composed a number of pieces of sound poetry. After a brief introduction by the composer we hear two short examples of his sound poetry followed by the longer work, “Fragility Cycles”.
