Item ID: 456926

The premier recordings of two recent works by legendary American experimental composer Alvin Lucier. In 'Criss-Cross', Lucier's first composition for electric guitars, two guitarists using e-bows sweep slowly up and down a single semitone, beginning at opposite ends of the pitch range. Performed by Oren Ambarchi and Stephen O'Malley. In the comparatively lush 'Hanover', Lucier draws inspiration from the photograph on the cover, an image of the Dartmouth Jazz Band taken in 1918 featuring Lucier's father on violin. Using the instrumentation present in the photograph, Lucier creates an unearthly sound world of sliding tones from violin, alto and tenor saxophones, piano, vibraphone (bowed), and three electric guitars (which take the place of the banjos present in the photograph).
