Tony Conrad (feat. Andrew Deutsch) - Let's Trade Pants


Tony Conrad, amazing.

A very talented man, video and sound artist, classic avant-garde (60's, as avant-garde it's just temporal).
You can relate him to a lot of good old-school musicians that went evolving from orthodox compositions through vanguardism to the masterpieces they made, you can find Charlemagne Palestine, La Monte Young, Terry Riley, Luc Ferrari, Morton Feldman and many more.

Let's Trade Pants is a very rare CD from 2003, which was reissued on vinyl later.
I don't have too much info about this album, but all I have to say about it is that it's a delicious drone piece with amplified string instruments, like a violin or cello. Pretty harsh in a certain way and acid, but delicious drone progression though. There's a small reference to Andrew Deutsch as the responsable for the "audience members reconstruction". He's also a video artist and sound artist from NY that teaches at Alfred University.
