• Show Bio for Charlemagne Palestine
"Charlemagne Palestine (born Chaim Moshe Tzadik Palestine) is a performance artist from New York.
Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1947, Palestine began by singing sacred Jewish music and studying accordion and piano. At the age of 12 he started playing backup conga and bongo drums for Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Kenneth Anger, and Tiny Tim. From 1962-69 Palestine was daily carillonneur for the Saint Thomas Episcopal Church in Manhattan, eventually creating a piece that consisted of 1,500 15 minute performances.
From 1968-72, Palestine studied vocal interpretation with Pandit Pran Nath, experimented on kinetic light sculptures with Len Lye, composed music for Tony and Beverly Conrad's film "Coming Attractions," taught at Cal Arts with Morton Subotnick, created the sound and movement piece Illuminations with Simone Forti, and developed his own alternative synthesizer, The Spectral Continuum Drone Machine. Throughout the seventies Palestine created records, videos, sculptural objects, abstract expressionist visual scores and performed regularly in the company of his stuffed animals. From 1980 to 1995 Palestine performed only rarely, exhibiting instead at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, and in documenta 8. During that time he also founded the Ethnology Cinema Project in New York, which is dedicated to preserving films that document disappearing traditional cultures.
After moving to Europe in 1995, in addition to creating exhibitions, Palestine performs regularly, re-releasing older material and developing new videos and sonic projects."-Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlemagne_Palestine)

sample the album:
"Through my desire to find a sound form that rivaled Abstract Expressionist painters like Rothko, Newman, Still, around 1965 I attempted with the help of a 19th century sound treatise by Helmholtz, "On the Sensation of Tones", and my own exhaustive experimentation with the pipe organ and early electronic synthesizers, to develop a constantly changing molecudle like organism as a continuous sound form.
By 1977 those investigations becase Schlingen Blängen, a work for days nonstop in sonic constant chemical acoustic + architectural evolution + transformation in space, there have been many versions under many different circumstances, for the Angelica Festival 2004 I am creating a new version Schlingen Blängen for Organo Rinascimentale Non Temperato."-Charlemagne Palestine, May 2004
