On The Turntable: Charlemagne Palestine June 12 2017
Since the 1960s, Charlemagne Palestine has been one of the seminal figures of American minimalism. His works for piano, voice, electronics and carillon remain vital performance-driven compositions through hypnotic chant and trance-inducing tones.
In 1974 Ileana Sonnabend commissioned the composer to create an album in celebration of the opening of her Soho gallery, and Palestine embarked on a series of recordings at Swarthmore College.
Now, over 40 years later, Alga Marghen presents Arpeggiated Bosendorfer + Falsetto Voice for the first time.
