Alvin Lucier : Memory Space
An hour long rendition of Alvin Lucier’s influential work Memory Space, a piece where the performers re-enact the sounds of a space visited previously during a pre-established time. MAZE performs it in a spatialized setting, where audience can navigate the space and choose to eavesdrop on the musicians’ audio score, thus ‘mixing’ its own version of the piece.
Christian Marclay : Screenplay, The Bell & The Glass, Shuffle
Christian Marclay, a turntable pioneer and visual artist, explores connections between found materials of sound, image and text. These materials often stem from everyday life or popular culture. Marclay creates spaces where initial unity, meaning and purpose are lost and redefined by the generative powers of difference and translation. MAZE performs interpretations of the video scores Screenplay, The Bell and the Glass and the card-game Shuffle.
Annea Lockwood : Bayou Borne / Jitterbug
Tony Conrad : Slapping Pythagoras
MAZE performs a reïnterpretation of Tony Conrad’s seminal album Slapping Pythagoras. Conrad stood with La Monte Young at the basis of the Theatre of Eternal Music/Dream Syndicate, a collective playing long duration pieces in just intonation. Slapping Pythagoras was Conrad’s scorching answer to his former friend La Monte Young’s metaphysical musings around tuning – an onslaught of pitches against the ones favoured by Pythagoras and western classical music, in search of a radical democracy of voices.
Robert Ashley : Four In Memoriams
Robert Ashley – a pioneer in all things voice, opera, concept, performance – wrote a set of pieces titled Four In Memoriams that are reducing the four classic performance situations of European historical forms like Concerto, Quartet, Symphony and Opera, to the bare essentials, forming four drone pieces that show four different internal textures.
