The Art of the Fluke

by Alvin Curran / Cenk Ergun

Flukes happen. Daily occurrences like bottle caps in the gutter turning to gold; deadly tornadoes becoming angelic choirs of harmonic dust; spotting a pair of new women's shoes on the sidewalk in front of the post office.

ALVIN CURRAN - Biography

Alvin Curran makes music with all means, anywhere, and for all occasions. From rarefied string quartets to blaring ship-horn concerts to underground sound-installations; from computerized ram's horns to MIDI grand pianos to international simulcasts -- these are his natural laboratories.

He began composing at Brown University under Ron Nelson and completed his studies at Yale with Elliot Carter. Following a year with Carter in Berlin, he moved to Rome -- his adopted home -- and began his career in the American experimental music tradition. There he cofounded the legendary group Musica Elettronica Viva (with Frederic Rzewski and Richard Teitelbaum). In the early seventies, he struck out on the path of solo performance producing a series of pieces for taped natural sounds, synthesizer, flugelhorn, voice, piano, and found objects that built his reputation as a new music composer in Europe and the United States. In 1992 he was nominated the Milhaud Professor of Composition at Mills College in Oakland, California, where he taught until 2005. Currently continues teaching privately in Rome and receiving performances of his music worldwide.
