Photos Alvin Lucier Masterclass
Sonic Acts and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam hosted a masterclass with composer Alvin Lucier on Sunday 19 October. The masterclass was part of the Alvin Lucier Festival in the Stedelijk Museum. Much of Lucier's work is influenced by the science of acoustics and ideas surrounding the physical properties of sound itself: the resonance of spaces, phase interference between closely tuned pitches, and the transmission of sound through physical media. The masterclass included several performances of his works and a lecture by Lucier: ‘Once you know what is happening you don't have to think about it anymore and you can start listening.’ See for more photos our Flickr page.
