ALVIN CURRAN makes music, with all means, anywhere and for any occasion. From rarefied string quartets to blaring ship horn concerts to Holocaust memorial installations; from MIDI-Grands to computerized ram's horns these are his natural laboratories. He is a co-founder of the radical collective MUSICA ELETTRONICA VIVA. Among his best-known compositions are Songs and Views from the Magnetic Garden and Canti Illuminati for natural sounds, voice, keyboards; the large-scale environmental works Maritime Rites, Waterworks, and Notes from Underground; and pieces using radio as a geographical music instrument, A Piece for Peace and Crystal Psalms. His recent recordings are: Crystal Psalms (New Albion), Schtyx and Vstos (CRI), and The Magnetic Gardens (Catalyst/BVMG).
