Generation Loss (after Alvin Lucier)

1 August 2016

‘Generation Loss (after Alvin Lucier)’ is a response to Alvin Lucier’s 1969 work I am sitting in a room, in which the artist’s speech is recorded, played back and recorded again until the iterations become unrecognisable and incorporate the frequencies of the physical space. ‘Generation Loss’ contemplates duplication and decay; the ‘generations’ here respond to concepts of text degeneration in a digital environment and acknowledge the integrity of Lucier’s conceptual approach to experimental music.


second generation: text compression


third generation: Alvin standing outside (stick to your guns)
