”La terre, il se pourrait bien après tout que ce soit une espèce
de merveilleux petit appareil enregistreur, plaçé là par on ne sait qui,
pour capter tous les bruits qui circulent mystérieusement dans l’Univers.”
Pierre Reverdy - ”En vrac” - 1929

”J’entends tous les bruits de la terre grâce à mes oreilles et mes nerfs de cristal
dans lesquels circulent le feu du ciel et celui des volcans.”
Michel Leiris - ”Le point cardinal” - 1927

Julius Eastman

Julius Eastman was an African-American composer, vocalist in the area of minimalism.


A complete edition of his works was done by Mary Jane Leach



He conducted a musical score, "The holy presence of Joan d'Arc" for 10 celli,
which was paired posthumously with the silent movie of Carl Theodor Dreyer (1928).
The piece was originally written for a dance performance choreographed
by Andrew de Groat and was performed at the Kitchen in New York.

Mary Jane Leach a dit…

To be totally correct, his music was paired with the Dreiser film posthumously - the piece was originally written for a dance performance choreographed by Andrew de Groat.

Also, I don't have his complete works on my web site, only as much as is currently available. Anyone else who has a score, please contact me.

Palix a dit…

thank you for this details
