Fox, Terry – “Ataraxia” – [Plate Lunch]

Sound works from Terry, dating back to the late ’70s and early ’80s. Creative use of natural instruments. Each performance was entirely acoustic, no electronics were used, which is surprising given some of the sci-fi sounds that escape. Many of the tracks are of piano wires stretched entirely out and straight across a stage, or an attic, or a church… then either plucked, bowed, hit with chopsticks or played. He does the same with an aluminum rowboat inside a tunnel for ‘Culvert’. ‘Lunar Rambles’ has him playing two metal bowls, with a violin bowl. The resonating tunes that bounce back from the various locations are intriguing. Experimentalism.
