thought you might like to know about the benefit concert i have organised for La Monte young and marian zazeela. i don't know if you're aware, but marian has been quite ill recently & doctor's haven't yet made a satisfactory diagnosis. she spent about 60 days incapacitated in bed with severe back pains and general numbness. this of course meant they were unable to continue with their work and made their financial problems very obvious. the concert is on october 31st at the barbican centre in london and will feature special performances by pulp, spiritualized, gavin bryars ensemble and the english chamber orchestra performing steve martland. there will also be exclusive tape contributions from terry riley and spring heel jack. we will be showing video excerpts of La Monte performing the well-tuned piano and with the blues band. please let anyone you know in the uk know about the concert, which will be officially announced on friday 17th with La Monte on the front cover of the guardian newspaper's arts supplement. best wishes, mark webberThere is an article by Marian Zazeela about Jack Smith in the October 1997 issue of Artforum.
Dream House: Seven Years of Sound and Light is again open to the public for the 1997-98 season.
