Friday, November 22nd, 2013, 21.30 John Cage: ASLSP Manon Liu Winter, piano John Cage: ASLSP ASLSP consists of pointillist melodies played along with long-sustained notes whose open  strings resonate with new tones to create a faint halo to the music. In its tendency towards  extreme slowness, sparse textures and great delicacy, ASLSP looks towards the visionary and  lonely works of Cage's late period.  [Mode Records, USA] In 1987 Cage created a new version for organ, entitled Organ²/ASLSP, which eventually led to  a long term project at a church in Halberstadt, Germany, with a calculated performance  duration of 639 years. The documentary film (JC {639}) by Sabine Groschup, concerned with  this ongoing presentation of Organ²/ASLSP, is also featured as part of SUAL 2013. A short  rendition of the current 'audio state' of the Halberstadt project will also be presented in the  course of the concert evening.  Manon Liu Winter Manon Liu Winter lives and works in Vienna.
