Ligeti : a cluster in the bardo

Ligeti takes to the ether... never will there be another like him.

"POEME SYMPHONIQUE" by Gyorgy Ligeti (mp3 -27.8 MB)
Ligeti's 1962 composition for 100 metronomes..... Score here.
From David Suisman's 2002 Marathon premium "Machines vs. Music" at WFMU.

Stephan Beyst - with deeper readings of some on Ligeti's work.

"Requiem for Ligeti"

attach 83 harmonicas to 83 vaccum cleaners and set them running.
simultaneously have someone roll between all the vaccum cleaners in a wheelchair with playing cards attached to the spokes via clothes-pins ( as children used to do on their bikes).
perform for 83 minutes.
