Alvin Lucier is an American composer of experimental music and sound installations. Since the mid-1960s, Lucier has been a pioneering force in music and sound art, whether working with a brainwave-activated percussion orchestra, traditional chamber ensembles, or the migratory potential of recorded environments. Lucier’s thoughtful and poetic work often engages with the ‘natural’ world and cuts across many disciplinary boundaries. In October 2009 he spoke to a class of geographers studying concepts of ‘nature’. The talk and transcript are available in the Transnational Ecologies Audio Archive.
