When you Lear or have heard a lot of the music being composed by today s living composers your ear begins to sort out and differentiate the More progressive from the More conservative the More derivative from the More original. What once seemed to be All of a piece begins to assume distinct and disparate features and then you realize that the Shock is Over and that music itself As Are All forms of Art is evolving into something quite different from what most of us were brought up to think it was. A of the presence of the annual two week composers conference at Bennington College affords a rare Chance to hear a lot of contemporary music with the composers themselves present. Their second concern on saturday night seemed pretty evenly divided Between contemporary music As we can now recognize it and music that Points to a future where listening will be More essential than Ever but where audiences and performers perhaps even composers As we now identify them May prove utterly superfluous. Arlington legion plans installation Arlington a commander Dudley Griffis american legion Post 69, has announced that installation of incoming officers of both Post 69 and the american legion auxiliary Post 69 will be held at Post Headquarters sept. 6 at 8 . The installation will be preceded by a Buffet supper at 6 30 . For legion members and their wives and legion auxiliary members and their husbands. The slate of officers for the coming year Are Dudley Griffis commander Ted Hoyt first vice commander Joe Lobravico second vice commander James Wiley adjutant Cyril Hoyt jr., finance officer Medric Grover sergeant at arms Joe Lobravico chaplain William Griffis athletic officer Earl Prouty service officer Clifford Ferris publicity officer James Wiley membership chairman and Manfred Ehrich judge advocate. Officers of the auxiliary to be installed Are Margaret Hoyt president Marion Tudor first vice president Mary Thomas second vice president Lillian Hall sergeant at arms Mary Griffis second sergeant at arms Virginia Ferris Secretary Virginia Mattison treasurer Ehtle Bowen chaplain and Virginia Ferris historian. Of the latter kind Mel Powell a music a realized Quot not composed at Yale University a electronic music studio was strikingly original and somehow futuristic. His four a analogs Quot represented a fresh composite of artificially created sounds some similar to the instrumental sounds our ears now know some with a Quality All of their own. More plastic More fluid than most organizations of sound that i have heard this a realization Quot seemed to substitute a new sense of sound in time for what we generally Call rhythm a intricate to the Point of sounding immeasurable Rich in its patterns with a variety of transparently pure sounds tumbling profusely about in single lines or jumbled overlays but All done with or. Powell a Fine sense for the possibilities of timbre of Range of contrasts of pitches gaining significance from the confrontations or sequences in which they were arranged. Pure sound emerged from speakers at the front of the Carriage barn no performers no Page Turners necessary and an almost pure listening experience was made possible by the silent attentiveness of the audience. An approach to words pure sound in the form of a three pieces for string quartet Quot by Morton Feldman 1954 had the opposite effect on the audience to the Point that non musical sounds a a sigh Here a creak there the shifting of restless bodies in Creaky chairs a prevailed Over the music itself. And Small wonder. This minimal music with its paucity of notes its frequent prolonged pauses its unbroken pianissimo played mostly in airy harmonics was seemingly designed to keep the performers from playing and the audience from hearing. In fact i would not want to offer an informed opinion about it until i had really had a Chance to hear it alone in some soundproof room. I imagine that the music of the future once All the imperfections of human performance have been ruled out and audiences done away with once and for All May involve solitary listening to pure abstract sounds.

There was no indication from the crowd of 25,000 that the englishmen a popularity has diminished. The local fans took 12 pounds of confetti to prove their Devotion Gail the otherwise unidentified teen Ager below had a special message for the naughty beatle a we Luv u John a plus her phone number. Comes close to a though at this moment i cannot imagine going out of my Way to listen to it. The first part of saturday nights program came closer to music As we now recognize it. A a Trio Quot for flute clarinet and cello by James Brown was effectively original its rhythmic Quality dynamic its construction a neat integration of some strikingly eccentric lines its coordination of instrumental sounds maximizing the different qualities of the instruments involved. Opening the program was a Clever even masterful take off on some old american chestnuts a Don t sit under the Apple tree Quot a the yellow Star of Texas Quot by Marvin Johnson the Melody eventually disappearing into some highly developed dissonances in fugal form. This piece succeeded in what it set out to do delightfully. A scope seven Quot a piano Solo by Stephen Chambers performed by Robert Miller had its possible effectiveness badly marred by audience created noise though this May have been due to the fact that it did not seem compellingly or convincingly put together. A work a string Trio in Progress by Arthur Stern had an evocative Quality to it but sounded More derivative than daring. In the second and final week of the conference Arthur Berger and James Rondall will serve As staff composers. Concerts Are scheduled for wednesday and saturday night at 8 15 . In the Carriage barn.
