Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 18 min

Originally released as an insert into the seminal avant-garde “Source” magazine, this is Larry Austin’s “Accidents” for electronically prepared piano. The performers are pianist and frequent John Cage collaborator, David Tudor, with additional electronics provided by the composer himself. Austin, born in Duncan, OK., in 1930 is an electronic and computer music composer and co-founder and editor of “Source: Music of the Avant-Garde” which was noted for it publication of experimental music scores and records from 1967 to 1973. This work perfectly captures the spirit of the radically experimental live electronic music performances that were prevalent during the 1960s.
