Odd Old Ode

Jackson Mac Low and Anne Tardos - Phoneme Dance in Memoriam John Cage (5'00"). I played this on the first installment of my shortlived radio show last fall, but somehow never posted it here. Robert Kelly's mention of Mac Low's exacting standards for performance, in yesterday's post, spurs me to remedy that omission. I find these five minutes to be a perfect respite from the tedium of comprehensible utterance: a release into another register, one more plural and joyful than is common. This track is from the commercially-released Open Secrets, now fully accessible via the recently-updated Jackson Mac Low page at PennSound.
