The three words of text come from a traditional Hebrew inspirational chant that I chose to work with, for, among other reasons, it is highly selective and potent use of the vowel sounds, which lend themselves to the unfolding creative story that the overtones tell over the course of the composition" - Rhys Chatham. On transparent red single sided vinyl, with etched B-side.

Morton Subotnick – Silver Apples Of The Moon One album I don't have any more because I wore it out. When it first came out, I read about it in The New York Times, so I went to the record store every week to check if it was there. When I listened to it I literally screamed. Morton Subotnick had a class there. They bussed us to NYU, and Morton gave a lecture over three months, once a week there in his studio, with his modular synthesiser. Each week he would focus on something like frequency oscillation, another week it would be amplitude. I already knew at that point that I wanted to be a composer, so I got a hold of him and asked if I could study with him privately. He agreed and let me use his studio on weekends. He had a little closet that Maryanne Amacher was living in – she vacated the closet for the weekends when I would come in.

Three Aspects of the Name (Table of the Elements, 2004) documents a vocal piece that employs a minimalist technique of gradual development by iteration (a& la Steve Reich). A Crimson Grail (Table Of The Elements, 2007) is an ambitious piece for 400 electric guitars premiered in 2005 in Paris' basilica of Sacre-Coeur. Unlike his early works, this piece indulges in static drones and ecstatic atmospheres. Rhys Chatham, allievo di LaMonte Young e di Morton Subotnick, e' l'eminenza grigia del secondo minimalismo newyorkese. Nel 1971 fonda il programma musicale del Kitchen Center, che diventera' il covo preferito di un'intera generazione di compositori. Protagonista di diverse trovate multimediali, Chatham vara una versione del minimalismo in cui le chitarre prendono il posto delle tastiere elettroniche con lo scopo di far musica tramite i sovratoni.
