Marcel Duchamp – The Entire Musical Work (CD re-issue)

Duchamp’s often overlooked musical work was composed for the most part between 1912 and 1921. His method was based on chance and represented a radical departure from the way music was done at the time. The Entire Musical Work includes the artist’s complete oeuvre, namely ‘Erratum Musical’ (For Three Voices), ‘La Mariée mise à nu par ses célibataires même’, ‘Erratum Musical’ (in two different versions for player piano and chamber ensemble), and the conceptual piece ‘Sculpture Musicale’ (with a special version performed by John Cage).
The liner notes contain reproductions of Duchamp’s handwritten scores, as well as photographs of the instrumental ‘apparatus’ used to create the second version of ‘La Mariée mise à nu par ses célibataires même (a funnel, seven open top cars and six sets of balls)’.
Also included is a mesostic (a poem legible both horizontally and vertically) by John Cage.
