Description
Recorded on January 16, 1986 as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian talks with Annea Lockwood about her life and music. She describes her “Glass Concert” from the mid-1960s, her installations involving burned, buried and drowned pianos, and her attempts to capture the sound of the Hudson river from its source in the Adirondack Mountains to its mouth in New York City. She also plays pieces of her work with a sound ball, which is a ball equipped with microphones and speakers, as well as a work of meditative music based on ambient sounds.
