Artist: MAC LOW, JACKSON
Title: Poetry & Music
Format: CD
Label: Recital
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Poetry & Music is a tremendous collection of recordings from famed Fluxus poet and artist Jackson Mac Low (1922-2004). Originally published on New Wilderness Audiographics as a cassette in 1977, these recordings have been cleaned up and remastered by Sean McCann in 2018. Jacksons beautiful text formulas are supplemented by stereo multi-tracking, creating a spatial jungle of wordplay. One gem of this CD is the live foray into tape manipulation from 1966 featuring the assistance of James Tenney and Max Neuhaus. It is fabled that they took Jacksons voice and slowed it down to a guttural thunderstorm during playback, resulting in a manic blend of words darting through a black cloud of reverberation. Only a small amount of Jacksons sound poetry is currently available, making this collection a delight to swallow and digest. Co-produced with Charlie Morrow, Recital re-presents this history to the ears of both young and old. Edition of 250 with 8-page insert with scores and introduction by Charlie Morrow." - Recital.

Artist: MAC LOW, JACKSON
Title: Open Secrets
Format: CD
Label: XI
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
1993 release. “Open Secrets features Mac Low and Anne Tardos performing works for multi-track voices; and Robert Bethea, Andrew Bolotowsky, Daniel Goode, and Gabriela Klassen performing instrumental pieces. "Winds/Instruments" for flute, clarinet, trombone, violin, and narrator could well become a classic of new music, not only being beautiful, but also displaying Mac Lows witty use and love of words. Jackson Mac Low was first published in 1942. His multi-faceted career covers music, poetry, painting, performance, radio, and multimedia. Widely recognized for his work in the 1960s Fluxus movement, Mac Low has continued to produce musical works that meld aspects of several disciplines. In 1954 he adopted nonintentional procedures, including chance operations, indeterminancy, and related methods, but has also written and composed extensively by intentional methods. His many "simultaneities" include musical, verbal, and visual elements, usually involving guided improvisation and indeterminancy.” - XI.
