I'm planning a show based around La Monte Young's 'Arabic Numeral (Any Integer)', aka 'X (for Henry Flynt)' (1960) and am looking for people who might be interested in performing.
For those who don't know it, 'Arabic Numeral' is a cornerstone of experimental and minimal music. Its performance consists essentially of repeating a sound / action as regularly as possible for 'a long time'.
there's surprisingly little about this piece on the web but there is some info at http://www.users.waitrose.com/~chobbs/smithyoung.html
I'm interested in any instrument or sound source, as well as 'silent' (physical/visual) renditions, with the aim of exploring the piece from as many angles as possible.
If you're interested, let me know by commenting, or emailing b.oliver"@"optusnet.com.au
