Canti Illuminati - Alvin Curran
Had not heard this until the today of now. Loving it. Rzewski's old pal/collaborator from MEV, Alvin Curran makes amazing masterpiece released in 1982. This is desert Island stuff. Curran was also a Mills College Professor, they had quite the faculty didn't they? If someone hasn't done this already someone should, that is write a book about the great musical minds that were staff and students of Mills College, Oakland, California. Legends such as Morton Subotnick, Terry Riley, Pauline Oliveros, John Cage, Robert Ashley and Luciano Berio were amongst the prestigious staff. Some of their distinguished students were Steve Reich, Laurie Anderson, Dave Brubeck, Kevin Blechdom, Joanna Newsom and their most recent star Holly Herndon.
I've done me back and cannot move, the painkillerz have kicked in big time and Canti Illuminati has arrived from nowhere to entrance me. Thanks interweb gods and not forgetting Alvin too. Wow! Muchas Gracias!
