119. radiOM.org - Three Works by Robert Ashley [2.556% Popularity: 0.00000]
Three Works by Robert Ashley Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 30 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Two electronic music works and one rather avant-garde piano sonata by Robert Ashley. The first piece of electronic music “Heat” was conceived as a sort of soundtrack for one of Milton Cohen’s light sculpture/theater works entitled “Manifestations: Light and Sound.” This is followed by a somewhat sparse piano sonata which has as it’s subtitle, “Christopher Columbus crosses to the New World in the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa Maria using only dead reckoning and a crude astrolabe.” One can easily envisage the 15th century explorer wandering aimlessly around the Atlantic Ocean, searching for India, as the piano plays in the background. The program concludes with another typical early electronic composition. Robert Ashley was born in 1930 and in addition to being a frequent collaborator in Cohen’s intermedia “Space Theater” during the late 1950s and early 1960s he was also one of the founders of ...

A traveling scholarship sent her to Vienna in 1936 to study with Egon Wellesz and to Paris for sessions with Nadia Boulanger. From 1942 to 1959, she lived in the United States, becoming active as a resourceful and inventive concert organizer, and as a brilliant music critic for the “New York Herald Tribune”, where her colleagues were Virgil Thomson, Lou Harrison and Paul Bowles. After leaving New York, she settled in Greece before returning to Australia in the mid-seventies. Her own music...
