Dane Rudhyar

The San Jose Mercury News has a great article on the upcoming Dane Rudhyar Retrospective concerts next week.

It includes a YouTube Video of Sarah Cahill performing  Rudhyar’s “Yearning” from Pentagram IV at an earlier Other Minds Seance:

It is the music that Other Minds is revisiting, compositions from his early and his late-in-life work. The retrospective begins with a reception at 6:30 p.m. Monday in San Francisco’s Swedenborgian Church, 2107 Lyon St., with a panel discussion moderated by Other Minds artistic director Charles Amirkhanian and featuring the composer’s widow, Leyla Rudhyar Hill, and his biographer, Deniz Ertan of the University of Nottingham. In the concert that follows at 8 p.m., the Ives String Quartet will play Rudhyar’s “Crisis & Overcoming,” a string quartet written in 1979. Violinist David Abel and pianist Julie Steinberg will collaborate on “Poem for Violin and Piano” (1920), and Berkeley-based pianist and radio show host Sarah Cahill will play three solo works: “Transmutation,” a tone sequence in seven movements (1976); “Stars” from “Pentagram No. 3″ (1925) and “Granites” (1929).

Cahill, asked for her thoughts on Rudhyar’s musical language, spoke of the “atmospheric, layered sound world” he invented and said she was amazed that both the early and the late works seem to dip into the same pool of inspiration. She quoted his annotations from his “Transmutation” score: “The inspiration for the music stems from a sequence of psycho-spiritual states of consciousness, not from anything resembling physical movement. Music here is a nonverbal speech aiming at communicating or inciting inner experiences.”
