ONE 11 AND 103 by John Cage
Abstractions of light travel across and into the sounds and space
created by artist and composer John Cage. Writes Cage: "ONE 11 is a film
without subject. There is light but no persons, no things, no ideas
about repetition and variation. It is meaningless activitywhich is
nonetheless communicative, like light itself, escaping our attention as
communication because it has no content to restrict its transforming and
informing power. 103 is an orchestral work. It is divided into seventeen
parts. The lengths of the seventeen parts are the same for all the
strings and the percussion. The woodwinds and the brass follow another
plan. The shots of the cameraman still another. Following chance
operations, the number of wind instruments changes for each of the
seventeen parts."

Editor: Bernadine Colish. Writer/Composer: John Cage. From the

OBSOLETE SYSTEMS by Laurie Spiegel
OBSOLETE SYSTEMS, released last year through Electronic Music
Foundation, is a collection of Spiegel’s compositions that spans more
than thirty years. A display of Spiegel’s electronic music making
mastery, OBSOLETE SYSTEMS includes the 1971 work MINES (Modular analog
synthesizer, built by Don Buchla, mid-1960s) and IMMERSION, from 1983
(Electronic tape realized on McLeyvier computer-controlled analog
synthesis music system).
 “Laurie Spiegel is one of those rare composers in whom head and heart,
left brain and right brain, logic and intuition, merge and even exchange
roles. Though she is one of the highest-tech computer composers in
America, Spiegel is also a lutenist and banjo player, and sees the
computer as a new kind of folk instrument. She makes her most
intuitive-sounding and melodic music from mathematical algorithms, and
her most complex computerized textures by ear and in search of a desired
mood. Form and emotion are as difficult to separate in her music as they
are in that of her idol, J.S. Bach.”
