CALIFORNIA E.A.R. UNIT:
From Silver Apples to A Sky of
Cloudless Sulphur: Revisited
featuring electronic music vanguard
This March, new music high-fliers California E.A.R. Unit return to REDCAT with the godfather of techno Morton Subotnick for a live revisit to the electronic music pioneer's iconic works, rendered with new technology. This remarkable reinterpretation of an important part of Subotnick's oeuvre will be held at REDCAT, the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater, Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 8:30 pm.
From the landmark Silver Apples of the Moon (1966) to A Sky of Cloudless Sulphur (1977), Subotnick worked with Buchla synthesizers and tape recorders to create new electronic works meant for the home environment—and later adapted his music for live performance. Now equipped with Ableton Live on his Mac and the new Buchla 200e, he performs with the E.A.R. Unit—collaborators since 1980—and draws on elements of Silver Apples and Sky in an evening of "spontaneous performance and decision-making."
