R.I.P. Max Neuhaus
Sad news of the passing of Max Neuhaus yesterday, one of the first great new music percussionists, and an early performer of Cage, Feldman and Stockhausen. There's a very nice obituary in the Houston Chronicle.
Cathedral was composed over a two-year period almost entirely from piano samples, plus a very few night-time crickets recorded in our wildflower garden in central Ohio. "One majestic piece of drone music" — Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly.
