John Cage – Variations VII – 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering (1966)

via Built, not born :-/

bananimalistic | Jan 24, 2010 

In 1966 ten New York artists and thirty engineers and scientists from Bell Telephone Laboratories collaborated on a series of innovative dance, music and theater performances, 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering, held in October at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City. 

In the souvenir program for the first performance Cage writes a statement about the piece: “My project is simple to describe. It is a piece of music, Variation VII,indeterminate in form and detail, making use of the sound system which has been devised collectively for this festival, further making use of modulation means organized by David Tudor, using as sound sources only those sounds which are in the air at the moment of performance, picked up via the communication bands, telephone lines, microphones together with, instead of musical isntruments, a variety of household appliances and frequency generators.
The technical problems involved in any single project tend to reduce the impact of the original idea, but in being solved they produce a situation different than anyone could have pre-imagined.

Variations VII, performed at 9 Evenings, was the next to last in John Cage’s series of indeterminate works that he had begun in 1958, which made increasing use of electronic equipment and systems.

In 1966 ten New York artists and thirty engineers and scientists from Bell Telephone Laboratories collaborated on a series of innovative dance, music and theater performances, 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering, held in October at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City. The artists were John Cage, Lucinda Childs, Öyvind Fahlström, Alex Hay, Deborah Hay, Steve Paxton, Yvonne Rainer, Robert Rauschenberg, David Tudor and Robert Whitman. Archival material has been assembled into ten films, each of which reconstructs the artist’s original work and uses interviews with the artists, engineers and performers to illuminate the artistic, technical and historical aspects of the work. 

Variations VII, performed at 9 Evenings, was the next to last in John Cage’s series of indeterminate works that he had begun in 1958, which made increasing use of electronic equipment and systems. This DVD documents the only complete performance of Variations VII and also presents a stereo audio recording of the full 85 minutes of the performance. 

This rare and historical film is the second in the 9 Evenings series from E.A.T. and ARTPIX and was produced by Billy Klüver and Julie Martin of E.A.T. and directed by Barbro Schultz Lundestam.

Fernest Arceneaux Dies of Natural Causes

Lafayette Native and Zydeco Musician Transitions

Fernest Arceneaux 
August 27, 1940-September 4, 2008 

Fernest Arceneaux, lead accordionist for Fernest and the Thunders, passed away on September 4, 2008 at the age of 68 in Lafayette, Louisiana. 

Known in the Zydeco Nation as “The New Prince of Accordion”, Fernest Arceneaux was known for his intense and creative accordion rifts. Fernest Arceneaux was torch-bearer for the classic zydeco traditions personified by the King of modern Zydeco Music, Clifton Chenier and promoted Creole and Zydeco music and heritage throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. 

Fernest Arceneaux, was born on August 27, 1940 to a large sharecropping family based in Lafayette, Louisiana. He learned to play an accordion owned by his brother-in-law by under the watchful eye of his father, a local Creole musician. Fernest polished his craft by backing up his father’s band at local house parties. 

By the 1960s, Fernest Arceneaux had abandoned his Creole and Zydeco roots to play guitar in a rock & roll band named Fernest and the Thunders. The outfit featured two drummers and enjoyed a measure of success. At the encouragement and mentoring of the King of Zydeco Music, Clifton Chenier, Mr. Arceneaux returned to playing the accordion, and the Thunders made the move from rock & roll to Zydeco music. 



His band, the Thunders, featured singer/bassist Victor Walker, guitarist Chester Chevalier and drummer Clarence “Jockey” Etienne. The band toured extensively in Europe and recorded classic Zydeco albums like “Fernest and the Thunders”, “Rockin’ Pneumonia” in 1979, and 1981 “Zydeco Stomp!” in 1981. In the early eighties, singer/bassist Victor Walker was killed in a barroom brawl. 

Fernest and the Thunders recorded Zydeco Thunder in 1985 and Gumbo Special in 1987. Injuries and asthma eventually sidelined Mr. Arceneaux in the late 1980s and the original Thunders broke up (two members, Clarence “Jockey” Etienne and Chester Chevalier, are now part of the Creole Zydeco Farmers). 

In 2000, Fernest Arceneaux along with Paul “Lil’ Buck” Sinegal on guitar, Alonzo Johnson on bass, Joseph Edwards on percussion; and Jerry Jumonville on saxophone recorded the CD, “Old School Zydeco” which featured an assortment of blues-oriented numbers and rural zydeco like John Delafose’s “Joe Pitre Has Two Women” and “Watch That Dog,” an Alvin Cormier song also recorded by Delafose; Rockin’ Sidney’s “Good for the Gander”; Clifton Chenier’s “Tous les temps en temps” (“Tu le ton son ton”); Fats Domino’s “Three Nights a Week”; two traditional French songs, “Hippy Ti Yo” and “J’ai passé devant ta porte”; Gene Morris’ “Going Back to Big Mamou”; and Arceneaux’s own songs, including “Whole Lot of Love,” “So Long,” and the instrumental “Old School Zydeco.” 

Thank you Mr. Fernest Arceneaux for fighting the good fight, for walking the narrow road, and showing us the importance of keeping our roots strong!

ZydecoOnline and the Zydeco Nation would like to send our thoughts and prayers to the entire Arceneaux family.
