Illuminated By The Moon 4LP BOX
Black Truffle 43 / AUS / 2018
Black Truffle together with Bernhard Rietbrock and ZHDK are honoured to reissue this stunning boxset celebrating Alvin Lucier’s 85th birthday celebrations which took place in Zurich, 2013. It's a remarkable collection of performances of works (>190 minutes playtime) from Alvin Lucier’s life in music, from the iconic to the lesser known. Alvin Lucier is one of most important figures in more than a half century of avant-garde and experimental sound practice. He has no equivalent. He is among America’s most important composers – a towering pillar of intellect, creativity, and beauty realized through sound. His singular and unparalleled body of work, focused around acoustic phenomena and auditory perception. It is such a life, defined by such striking accomplishment, which this release celebrates across the four LPs, CD, and book which make up the lavish Illuminated by the Moon release.
