More Info

this is a wide panorama of Nam June Paik work as musician - Hommage John Cage (1958-1959), tude for Pianoforte (1959-1960) and Simple (1961) are good exemple of neodada music and de-structuration in the late 50', this is basically irreverent audio-collages. Prepared Piano for Merce Cunningham (1977) captures an improvised performance by Paik on a de-tuned piano. while Prepared for Merce Cunningham was later mixed and edited for use by Cunningham, this raw, straight -to-tape version is favored by Paik. Duett: Paik/Takis (1979) this is the only piece already released (by 20 years ago on a limited vinyl edition) Paik improvises on piano and voice, while Takis performs on his metal sculptures.
