PATTERSON, BILL: Early Works
Fluxus luminary Patterson presents 4 works from 1960 and '61, including the famous Paper Piece (a group of people with paper to be torn, shaken, crumpled and so on) his variations for Double-Bass, simultaneous mumbling and a recent work 'A Simple Opera'. Amusing and irritating by turns (as conceptual art can often be). It's a valuable record of the period and Patterson's first release - though the recordings, from fluxart gatherings, are 40 years old and have plenty of audience reaction included. For historians, students and Fluxophiles only I'd say. Foldout booklet with note and original scores.
