In the spring of 2019, the Musée d’art contemporain de Lyon will present an exhibition of works from its collection devoted to sound experimentation from the 1960s through to the 1990s.

The recent acquisition of Rainforest V (Variation 4), 1973-2017 by David Tudor and Composers Inside Electronics, comprises the heart of this exhibition and allows the public to discover sound, visual, digital and performative works from the collection of the macLYON in relation to experimental music.

The macLYON takes visitors on a journey to the worlds of seventeen artists who have experimented and produced new forms of art by decompartmentalizing its disciplines: music, visual and digital arts, theatre, dance and poetry, breaking away from the artistic and cultural conventions of their time. This show invites us to look, listen, read and experience the experimental works by these artists who have influenced the history of music and contemporary art through their audacity and creativity.

Featuring the works of: Laurie Anderson, George Brecht, Philip Corner, Molly Davies, Morton Feldman, Anna Halprin, Joe Jones, Allan Kaprow, Alvin Lucier, George Maciunas, Peter Moore, Nam June Paik, Terry Riley, David Tudor, Stephen Vitiello, La Monte Young et Marian Zazeela.

The recent acquisition of Rainforest V (Variation 4), 1973-2017 by David Tudor and Composers Inside Electronics, comprises the heart of this exhibition and allows the public to discover sound, visual, digital and performative works from the collection of the macLYON in relation to experimental music.

Texte En savoir plus : Droite

Rainforest V (Variation 4) is a musical composition that has been ‘transferred’ to an installation. From a partition where indeterminacy holds a large part, particularly in terms of execution, it offers the ongoing possibility of multiple interpretations. It takes the form of an environment between sculpture and music, deliberately choosing to be neither one nor the other, nor fitting into any category. In this regard, it is perfectly suited to the collections of the macLYON which bring together a large number of indefinable works that ‘go beyond borders’.
