Condition: See description


New York: Park Place Gallery, 1967. Poster advertising an early performance by Steve Reich at Park Place Gallery in New York on March 17, 18, and 19, 1967, also featuring Max Neuhaus performing and "distributing" a new piece called "BI-PRODUCT" (currently listed on Neuhaus' website as "By-Product," in contravenance of the poster). In 1967 Steve Reich wrote a prototype piece, "Slow Motion Sound" that involved two separate pairs of hands clapping out of phase and coming into phase over the course of 144 bars. Though it was the foundation of all his work that would follow, it was not recorded until 1994 (by Chris Hughes). Reich worked the same concept into his first "traditional" piece, "Four Organs" in 1970.This performance represents a bridge between "Slow Motion Sound" and "Four Organs," only conceived as "Four Pianos" instead. "Four Pianos" was never formally recorded, only performed. Texas composer Max Neuhaus was in the 1960s a renowned percussionist and interpreter of contemporary music who at this point was moving toward his ultimate identity as a pioneer of artistic work in sound, and would become one of the innovators of sound works and the concept of sound installations. Blue card stock with printing in black, 7 x 10 inches (18 x 25.5 cm). Near Fine with just a touch of fading at the edges.
