ether music (for pairs of spatially displaced sounds)

COMPOSER: Seth Cluett

This past September, Pauline and I were preparing to perform Apple Box Double for the 9 evenings + 50 events at Fridman Gallery celebrating the 50th anniver-sary of the eponymous program for Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.). Pauline had an evening dedicated to her work at Bard College performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE). The same night, at Abrons Art Center in Manhattan, a subset of the same group was performing a piece of mine. I was in residence at Wave Farm in the Catskills without a car and wrote Pauline to apologize for missing the event that was so close to me at Bard, her email response was simple: “Life is complicated, we’ll meet in the ether.”
