Tony Conrad standing outside a concert by La Monte Young in Buffalo with a picket sign declaring “Composer La Monte Young does not understand ‘his’ work”, 1990.

COMPOSER LA MONTE YOUNG DOES NOT UNDERSTAND “HIS” WORK …

Tony Conrad / 1990

1. The “Theater of Eternal Music” (“TEM”) of 1964 was collaboratively founded - and was so named to deny the Eurocentric historical/progressive teleology then represented by the designation, composer.

2. Young is suppressing the recordings of “TEM,” which do not flatter him. He has specifically denied access by members of the collaboration (Tony Conrad, John Cale) to the collection of recordings for 25 years. Two members are already dead (Maclise, Jennings).

3. Young himself now ignorantly insists on the artistic demolition of this body of work by claiming that it is a series of “compositions” (by him).

4. The “TEM” introduced an influential preoccupation with just intonation. “TEM” was anti-rationalist and non-electronic, but did focus on perceptual and conceptual aspects of small intervals. Young himself misunderstands this development as neo-Pythagorean rationalism (after the scientific idealism of Helmholtz).

5. Each “TEM” member had an interest in carefully structured improvisation and long durations. Young’s early eurocentric compositional innovation - the use of long notes - appears in his String Trio. However, nowhere do his compositions show “TEM”’s crucial understanding that long durations are small intervals.

6. Young’s neo-Futurist (“Fluxus”) work aside, his Orientalism and romanticized personality-cult mark him among the most regressive of contemporary artists. His conservative gutting of “TEM” has paid off (for him) in a multimillion petro-dollar bonanza, which he uses to perpetuate his exploitative and artistically mindless enterprise.

7. Money paid to Young is valuable resources wasted on ignorance, false self-representation, service to Young’s ego at others’ expense, and a colonial image of American cultural expression.

YOUNG – OUT OF BUFFALO NOW!
