Maryanne Amacher: R.I.P. 1943-2009

It is sad but true: yet the death of another grossly under-appreciated musician/artist/conceptualist of the past few decades. Having only released a couple of CDs (see my earlier blog entry on her) on John Zorn's Tzadik Records, her works take tremendously effort and commitment to ingest and digest, but they will never disappoint. Download does not do justice to listen to her music as to appreciate them, the actual architectural space she recorded them in would be the best but CDs will have to do, for now, until someone brave enough, decides to re-stage some of her works again. Now it's time to check her out, if you have not done so.

Hey joseph! It's uncanny that I bought her latest album in taiwan and found her dead a month later. Nice blog! Let's catch up sometime... George.
