Two Songs
(Listen to this set: )
Alan Lamb  Primal Image   Options Primal Image  Dorobo  1981-1988    For these recordings, Lamb used contact microphones on miles and miles of telephone wires, capturing the sounds of birds landing upon them or swaying in the wind. 
Ellen Fullman  Receeding Parade / Train Whistle Alternate   Options Change of Direction  New Albion  1998  10"  On Ellen's "Long String Instrument" which she's been working with since 1981. Performers use rosin on their hands to make the strings vibrate.

Two Songs
(Listen to this set: )
Paul Panhuysen + Johan Goedhart  Projection 6'30"   Options ECHO. The Images of Sound II  Het Apollohuis  1987    This string installation consisted of 18 paint cans upside down on the floor in three rows each. Strings attached the cans to the ceilings, which are"played" by small motors. Also chek out the album "Partitas for Long Strings" on XI records. 
Alastair Galbraith / Matt De Gennaro  Antares   Options Long Wires in Dark Museums (vol. 1 north island)  Emperor Jones  1999    For these pieces, AG + MDG set-up the long wires in galleries, but only perform on them in the dark. AG believes that with the lights out the audience is " silent, thralled by darkness, less aware of the passage of time." Read the interview at http://www.furious.com/perfect/galbraith.html

Two Songs
(Listen to this set: )
Stephen Vitiello  light readings [7]   Options Bright and Dusty Things  New Albion  2001    These sounds are translations of light; SV took light readings with a photocell device and processed vibrations of color and speed into tones with pitch and duration. On some pieces he collaborates with musicians Dave Tronzo and Pauline Oliveros. 
Text of LIght  [untitled]   Options 052402 Echo 4  Table of the Elements  2004    Group members (Alan Licht, Lee Ranaldo, William Hooker, Chrisitan Marclay, Ulrich Krieger. Tim Barnes and DJ Olive) improvise/interpret their work through the lens of Stan Brakhage's films, specifically Text of Light from 1974.

Two Songs
(Listen to this set: )
Moniek Darge  Man-Mo   Options Logos Works  XI  1995    Man-Mo is a temple in Hong Kong, and the music represents the spiraling-up of streams of smoke from incense. Im my mind, however, I can only think of decay -- the way the bell tones (especially) diminish so quickly. 
Harry Bertoia  #1025 Unfolding   Options Unfolding  PSF  1993    Bertoi's sounds come from hand-made sculpture/instruments, where again the ideas of space, length and decay come into play. 
 
  (Listen to your DJ: )
 
Closing Song (Listen to this set: )
Morton Feldman  for john cage   Options for john cage  HatArt  1999 (written 1982)    for violin (Josje Ter Haar) and piano (John Snijders). I chose this piece for Morty's unique use of space and time in his compositions, but also for its homage to Cage, whose piece "Organ 2/ASLAP" is playing for the next 639 years in Germany.
