Marcel Duchamp - The Creative Act
50 minutes of rare spoken word and music recordings, all of which are crucial to catch his rebellious, unconventional and anticonformist spirit.. THE CREATIVE ACT – lecture in Houson, Texas, April 1957 / some texts from A L’INFINITIF (1912-20) – lecture in New York, shortly before his death / ERRATUM MUSICAL (LA MARIÉE MISE À NU PAR SES CÉLIBATAIRES, MÊME) performed by Jean-Luc Fafchamps (pedal harmonium). Long before John Cage, the first aleatory composition and the only piece which is never twice the same / AN INTERVIEW BY GEORGE HEARD HAMILTON – recorded in New York in 1959. AN INTERVIEW BY RICHARD HAMILTON – recorded in London in the same year / ERRATUM MUSICAL (A SCORE FOR 3 VOICES) – the only score by Marcel Duchamp written for his two sisters and himself. Performed by Marianne Pousseur, Lucy Grauman and Jean-Luc Plouvier. This album was edited by Marc Dachy.
