THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY

a proposal by Alvin Curran

[sketch of installation]


THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY is the "flying" counterpart to the TWENTIETH and uses the same technology. One or more computer driven Diskklaviers - are spectacularly suspended from the ceiling of an appropriately large architectural space (see drawing), and perform uniquely written MAX programs which in turn produce a sparse subtle musical ambience. Conceived originally for the entrance hall of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, this installation is currently under consideration for the atrium of a new European concert hall. Below is the photograph of a "sketch" mounted for the Taktlos Festival Bern 2003.
