In stock


This CD restores three documents from the Charlotte Moorman canon. One happy example is a choral work performed on the 3rd of September 1964, during the second New York Avant Garde Festival, a performance of Jackson Mac Low's composition "The Long Hot Summer." This very relevant concert, distinguished by a marked ethico-political intonation and valence, sees in an exceptional reunion the names of Charlotte Moorman, Nam June Paik, Benjamin Patterson, Philip Corner, and Malcolm Goldstein, as well as Mac Low himself. The voice of Charlotte Moorman, characterized by her unmistakable vital charge, is brought back to us through a long and meaningful interview conducted by Harvey Matusow in October of 1969 in the BBC New York Studios. The soundtrack of the video "Waiting for Commercials," realized by Nam June Paik in 1972 in collaboration with Russell Connor, whose sound collage integrates musical insertions by Charlotte Moorman and David Behrman, completes this anthology put together and offered here. One of the four Charlotte Moorman CDs originally included in the Cello Anthology box, now individually available for the first time.
