CHRISTIANSEN, HENNING: Op. 39. fluxoram organum (double LP)
Danish composer and Fluxus alumnus, Henning Christiansen wrote this 5 part organ piece in 1967 for Joseph Beuys' Euranienstab action in Vienna. It was recorded in a church in Dusseldorf on a 'manipulated' tape machine (meaning that there are small manually induced fluctuations, interferences and lacunae). The event was presented twice, and that seemed to be that. Then, in 2008, the tapes came into the possession of Ursula Block who had them restored and remastered (by Markus Schmickler) for this release. An interesting and very listenable work, sometimes reminiscent of Satie's Mass for the Poor, minimal but not boring. In a limited edition of 450 copies, cleanly packaged and well protected.
