Nam June Paik “Works 1958-1979″ [Sub Rosa] (CD)

Paik, Nam June- Works 1958-1979 (Sub Rosa)
Nam June Paik was a student of Cage and Stockhausen and it shows. Using prepared piano his performances were not only experimental in sound, but at time dangerous for the performer and audience- eviscerated pianos that he threw himself into, grabbing wickedly long scissors and leaping into the front row where he proceeded to cut and slash away Cages suit jacket while Stockhausen edged nervously away…

Trk 1- Prepared Piano is a live recording of his performance on and IN the piano. 28’33
Trk 2- Hommage a John Cage is a hand spliced sound collage 4’10
Trk 3- Simple is a hand spliced sound collage 0’21
Trk 4- Duett Paik/Takis is a collaboration with Paik on piano and voice and Takis on metal sculpture 25’46
Trk 5- Etude for Pianoforte is a hand spliced sound collage 2’49
