Strange Music of Namjune Paik [electronic resource]

Loading...
Namjune Paik, Korean-born avant garde composer, assisted by cellist Charlotte Moorman, in a presentation of several pieces that explore his art. Paik, who revels in the description of himself as the world's most famous bad pianist and the George Washington of video art, has been pushing at the boundaries of electronic music since the possibilities of synthesized music and video first appeared. Here he presents Global Groove, The Medium Is the Medium, and Paik Meets Beethoven (which he created for the Boston Symphony.) Paik, who had an advanced formal education at Tokyo University and the University of Munich, and studied at the Freiburg Conservatory, was turned into his path as a master nontraditionalist by meeting the avant garde composer John Cage.
