Other Minds Festival: OM 5, Concert 1: 12 “Islands” by Alvin Lucier Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 16 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Alvin Lucier has been a pioneer in many areas of composition and performance, including the use of brain waves in live performance (”Music for Solo Performer”), the generation of visual imagery by sound in vibrating media (”The Queen of the South”), and the evocation of room acoustics for musical purposes (”I am Sitting in a Room”). His more recent works include a series of sound installations and works for solo instruments, chamber ensembles, and orchestra in which, by means of close tunings with pure tones, sound waves are caused to spin in space. “Islands”, for wind instruments and amplified snare drums, is the latest in a series of works by Alvin Lucier that explore the spatial characteristics of sound waves in enclosed spaces. In “Directions of Sounds from the Bridge” (1978), flashlights deployed around a cello are activated by sounds which f...
