Noise boarders should check out all back issues of Schizo, as they're completely hilarious.

Satie, of all of the collaborators, however, nearly was ruined by the fallout of Parade. He came into conflict with one of many critics who had given it a bad review, Jean Poueigh. Satie sent him several exceedingly nasty letters, such as the following:
Erik Satie to Monsieur Fuckface PoueighFamous Gourd and Composer for NitwitsFontainebleau, 5 June 1917……Lousy ass-hole, this is from where I shit on you with all my force……Erik Satie Poueigh did not appreciate Satie’s correspondence and promptly filed a law suit for slander. Satie lost and was sentenced to a week in prison, one hundred francs fine, and one thousand francs paid to Poueigh for damages.

i used to have the first 2 issues of schizo. that guy is the most head-up-his-own-ass self-pitying comic artist alive. kudos to him for securing that title, i guess.

satie is great... his art songs are super fun to interpret/perform (esp the one about the mad hatter!)

the best part of that clip is seeing how destroyed that guy appearing in "the brig" is...he seems like a nervous shut-in (harold smith?), but other than mentioning his off (off) broadway show, theres no mention that hes involved in what is often referred to as the most neurosis enducing "plays" of all time...
also: satie is just plain brilliant. and i do wonder what heppened to the webpage version of vexations...granted it was just a midifile set to repeat 840 times, but still..i wonder what the weird fckr would have thought of that...is there any instances of satie talking about or considering automated musics? seems like something w. benjamin might have thought around

heres a good chronicaling of various performances i came across after watching that ive got a secret clip last week
i assume the "special guests" were the nytimes critic
theinteresting point made by cage was around the effect that the successive playing had on destroying personal interpretive playing and the convergence around a "group" interpretation.

I had to look The Brig up after reading this. Was it really as influential as it seems like it would have been based on the synopsis? It's interesting to watch the actor guy fall into what looks like a trance while listening, and it doesn't really look forced. I wonder how conditioned you'd be after listening to that piece for eighteen hours...

alex ross thinks it's joshua rifkin
Joshua Rifkin (born April 22, 1944 in New York) is an American conductor, keyboard player, and musicologist. He is best known by the general public for having played a central role in the ragtime revival in the 1970s with the three albums he recorded of Scott Joplin's works for Nonesuch Records. The albums - which were presented as classical music recordings - were critically-acclaimed, commercially successful and led to other artists exploring the ragtime genre. Rifkin's work as a revivalist of Joplin's work immediately preceded the adaptation of Joplin's music by Marvin Hamlisch for the film The Sting (1973).
rifkin's joplin records are still my favorite joplin, he plays the guy like bach

oh man, 'solace' + 'vexations' was meant to be
hmm, ill have to hear some of this rifkin..
ill have to hop over to ubuweb to check myself, but i recall some of the "pianoless 'vexations'" from the sculpture center being fairly interesting, though flawed by not actually following the intructions. (but am listening to vancouver soundscapes right now).
as for "the brig". i've, understandably, only seen the mekas brother's film (shot durring the final performance, when the living theater and a handful of spectators snuck back into the shut down theater for a final, illegal, performance)and had a hard time getting through. it's classically artuad-ian and rather brutal in its reality. not being a big theater fan, i couldn't say how influential it really was, but anecdotes of the 60's avant garde speak powerfully of its impact with the downtown arts community..
