Electro-Pythagoras (a portrait of Martin Bartlett): Luke Fowler
Small World Music Co-Presents Electro-Pythagoras (a portrait of Martin Bartlett) by Luke Fowler with the 2017 Images Festival
8PM Electro-Pythagoras (a portrait of Martin Bartlett) by Luke Fowler
9PM Glyphs (Music from Martin's Tape Archive) by Luke Fowler and Ernst Karel
Electro-Pythagoras is an intimate and subjective portrait of the late Martin Bartlett, the Canadian electronic music pioneer who studied with Pauline Oliveros, David Tudor, John Cage, and Pandit Pran Nath. His contribution as an interdisciplinary composer, educator, and founding member of Western Front, though undoubtedly extensive, is in danger of being erased from cultural memory since his death from AIDS in 1993.
Following the screening of Electro-Pythagoras, Fowler and Karel will perform the North American premiere of Glyphs (Music from Martin’s Tape Archive), a new quadraphonic concert work comprised entirely from unreleased and rarely heard reel-to-reels found in Martin Bartlett’s archive, which were digitized by Fowler as part of his research.
