Home / Now Showing / “A Different Score” / NEW MUSIC: SOUNDS AND VOICES FROM THE AVANT-GARDE NEW YORK 1971
“A Different Score”, 2023, Dir: Anaïs Ngbanzo, 31 Minutes, Editions 1989, France
In March 2022, Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection invited British composer Devonté Hynes to perform selected pieces by Julius Eastman. This film intercuts footage of Hynes rehearsing in the museum’s auditorium with previously unseen interviews and recordings from Eastman’s archives. Anaïs Ngbanzo’s captivating directorial debut, “A Different Score” is the first documentary portrait of this iconic figure of the American musical avant-garde. The film emphasizes the political aspect of Eastman’s work, and the courage he showed in dedicating his life to his music.
NEW MUSIC: SOUNDS AND VOICES FROM THE AVANT-GARDE NEW YORK 1971, 2010, Dir: Hans G Helms, 51 Minutes, Michael Blackwood Productions, Germany
With participation of John Cage, Earle Brown, David Tudor, Gordon Mumma, David Behrman, Max Neuhaus, Morton Subotnik, Phil Corner, Joe Jones, Alvin Lucier, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Ben Patterson, and Wolf Rosenberg.
In 1971 we produced, in association with West German Television, a documentation on New York’s musical avant-garde. It was broadcast only in Germany at the time. By 2010, after nearly 40 years, it seemed desirable to recycle the performances and interviews with the composers and to create a revealing look back to those years for English-speaking New Music fans. The film offers valuable insights into the nature and issues of advanced composition at the beginning of the 1970s.
