Playing tracks by
sebastiane hegarty and pierre henry.
it was with great sadness that we learned this past week of the passing of pierre henry, pioneer of musique concrète and experimental composition, at the age of 89. henry has of course played a huge role in the history and development of all electronic, experimental, and acousmatic music, and we in the field recording community owe him a special debt. he has had a huge influence personally on my work and my ears, and i count myself very lucky to have had the chance to discover and explore his work. the 20 years for which i have been listening to his music feels shamefully short against the almost 70 years for which he was making it. we here at framework felt we had no alternative but to make the tiniest of possible gestures in dedicating an edition of our show to him and his immense body of immense work, a tip of the 'phones, if you will, to a great artist. rest in peace, pierre, and thanks.
