Well-known in visual art circles, Terry Fox, who has done more than 100 sound-performances not only with long-strings, but with nearly all kinds of material, sadly seems to be a total stranger to those outside of it (although Alan Licht included the Terry Fox LP Berlino from 1988 in his "Minimal Top Ten" in Halana #1) - which is a shame, as these recordings are some of the most interesting examples of soundworks with this and similar source-material like metal bowls, done during the last 30 years.
The tracks on this CD include excerpts from several sound-performances, that gives the listener a first impression of the unique quality of these works. All soundsources are acoustic, but what you'll get to hear sounds as if electronic instruments have been used -- it's exciting to listen to. This is an essential CD-release and a true discovery for everyone interested in the soundworks of this great American performance-artist.
This CD is released by Plate Lunch in cooperation with Edition S-Press on the occasion of an exhibition in the "Stadtgalerie" Saarbrücken/Germany, that presents the sound-installations of Terry Fox."
