On 22 November 2009, a bunch of us got together to play some Cardew pieces at the ICA in London, as part of a conference on Cardew.
First, there’s a performance of Autumn 60, conducted by John Tilbury: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rH593QaXS50
Second, we did Cardew’s The Great Learning, Paragraphs 3 and 6, directed by Dave Smith: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZAgM8dBc00
This is a good chance to see some of the British experimentalists in action: Dave Smith standing on a chair to announce The Great Learning, John White on euphonium, Chris Hobbs on laptop, Richard Ascough singing on P. 3, and the others. Enjoy!
