View the full PDF description Steve Reich: Composer Born in 1936, Steve Reich was raised in New York and California before attending Cornell University from 1953 to 57. He graduated with honors in Philosophy and a minor in Music. His choice of Ludwig Wittgenstein as the subject for his B.A. thesis may indicate an early expression of his later creative growth.  Reich studied composition with Hall Overton after graduation, and furthered his musical study at Julliard with William Bergsma and Vincent Persichetti. He received his master's degree in music from Mills College in 1963, where he worked with Luciano Berio and Darius Milhaud.  Influenced in the 1960s by the minimalist composer Terry Riley, Reich began his experiments in pulse, repetition, canons, and phasing - aspects of his artistic originality that have influenced composers and mainstream musicians alike.  Throughout the 1960s Reich was an active participant in New York's avant garde, where artists crossed fields and collaborated across disciplines. Paul Hillier notes that experimental film and dance were fertile fields for interactive creativity, and among those involved were Michael Snow, Bruce Nauman, Meredith Monk, Richard Serra, Robert Morris, Sol LeWitt and Laura Dean (see Hillier's introduction to Writings on Music 1965-2000, Oxford UP,  p. 16). Drumming's Background and Reception During the summer of 1970, with the help of a grant from the Institute for International Education, Reich studied drumming at the Institute for African Studies at the University of Ghana in Accra. Drumming was a ground-breaking result of this trip. Composed for a percussion ensemble with voices and piccolo, Drumming marked the beginning of a new period in Reich's career and the formation of his ensemble, Steve Reich and Musicians.  Although Reich himself has resisted (or rejected outright) the use of the term "minimalism," his aesthetic has reflected hallmarks of the category, whether seen in his use of a Wittgenstein-like aphoristic prose style in his writings or in the formal concepts used in his musical language. His early experiments in developing a unique musical language culminate in Drumming, the final work in which Reich used the phasing technique that was so important in his work throughout the 1960s. Reich later reflected on the piece, and its place in his body of work: In the context of my own music, Drumming is the final expansion and refinement of the phasing process, as well as the first use of four new techniques: (1) the process of gradually substituting beats for rests (or rests for beats); (2) the gradual changing of timbre while rhythm and pitch remain constants; (3) the simultaneous combination of instruments of different timbre; and (4) the use of the human voice to become part of the musical ensemble by imitating the exact sound of the instruments. (Writings on Music 1965-2000, Oxford UP, p. 64) Drumming has been called by music critic K. Robert Schwarz "minimalism's first masterpiece," a "transitional" piece between Reich's early, more austere compositions and his later works that use less strict forms and structure.  The contemporary review in New Music Box, published after its first performance in New York at the Museum of Modern Art on December 3, 1971, captured the immediacy of Drumming's acceptance as a major contemporary work: "It's not very often that a long complex piece of new music receives a standing ovation. What was it about Steve Reich's 'Drumming' that brought the audience to its feet at the Museum of Modern Art on December 3? The simple fact that 13 musicians had performed intricate rhythms with amazing precision for an hour and half no doubt had a lot to do with it. Or perhaps it was because the simple white-note scales were refreshing to ears grown weary of dissonance. Or perhaps it was the joyous blend of marimbas, glockenspiels, drums, and voices that turned everyone on. Or was it the pleasure of seeing African and European elements so thoroughly fused--almost as if we really did live in one world. Or perhaps it was because the music had spoken directly to the senses, with the sound itself never sacrificed for the more intellectual rhythmic side of the piece" (published 9 December 1971) Composer's Notes "For one year, between the fall of 1970 and the fall of 1971, I worked on what turned out to be the longest piece I have ever composed. Drumming lasts from 55 to 75 minutes (depending on the number of repeats played) and is divided into four parts that are performed without pause. The first part is for four parts that are performed without pause. The first part is for four pairs of tuned bongo drums, stand-mounted and played with sticks; the second, for three marimbas played by nine players together with two women's voices; the third, or three glockenspiels played by four players together with whistling and piccolo; and the fourth section is for all these instruments and voices combined... "I am often asked what influence my visit of Africa in summer of 1970 had on Drumming. The answer is confirmation. It confirmed my intuition that acoustic instruments could be used to produce music that was genuinely richer in sound than that produced with electronic instruments, as well as confirming my natural inclination towards percussion (I became a drummer at the age of 14)" (Steve Reich, composer's notes reproduced by Boosey and Hawkes). Russell Hartenberger, a percussionist and member of Steve Reich and Musicians since 1971, has written extensively about the performative aspects of the piece in his Performance Practice in the Music of Steve Reich, Cambridge University Press, 2016, pp. 33ff. The Manuscript Score The score for Drumming was not published until 2011, and the present manuscript shows noticeable differences from this final form of the piece. Reich's opening notes on the title refer, for instance, to covering one end of the percussionists' sticks with "masking tape, rubber, or some other padding to make the 'soft stick.'" In the published version, refined after years of performance, the instruction is given that "One end of the stick is covered with several layers of felt, or some other padding."  This minor adjustment is not nearly as significant as the complete change in structure of form. Reich remarked in his notes to the published edition that he first had only jottings in notebooks and would use them to teach members of his ensemble how to play the piece during rehearsals: "Only after the entire piece was completed did I make an ink manuscript which in many ways was difficult to read, ambiguous as to interpretation and in some cases, mistaken as to note values... For 40 years this manuscript has circulated [in mechanically-reproduced copies] and an increasing number of unfortunate performances have been the result." While the published score reads in the conventional left-to-right form, the manuscript requires a performer to jump periodically down a column of bars. The difference is significant in several ways, not least of which is evident in its appearance: the manuscript, with its elegantly written performance notes, looks like a work of art. This graphic quality is missing from the utilitarian structure of the printed score.  And while its published edition may more fully reflect the composer's musical intentions after more than a quarter century of performances, the original manuscript represents an artistic sensibility in and of itself. Reich's textual notes throughout interact and inform the musical notation, and reinforce the work's conceptual framework. It is, in brief, a beautiful encapsulation of all that Reich was trying to achieve in the piece, and a summation of his experimentations throughout the previous decade. Scarcity of Reich manuscript material in the market As late as 1990 - well after Reich's stature was established - it was difficult to obtain Reich's scores in any form: manuscript, printed or reproduced. "There can be few major composers, at least in the 20th century, whose scores have been as difficult to obtain as those of Steve Reich" (Keith Potter, "Reich in Score," The Musical Times, Vol. 131, No. 1773, November 1990, pp.597-98). The score to Drumming was printed in 1972 by John Gibson and Multiples, Inc. in a signed edition of 500 copies. But general access to scores was restricted until Universal Edition and Boosey and Hawkes were engaged to reproduce Reich's scores. As difficult as it was for musicians to obtain scores for performance, acquiring Reich manuscript material has always been among the most elusive of goals.  Availability is likely to remain virtually non-existent. In 2008, Reich negotiated the donation of his archive to The Paul Sacher Stiftung in Basel. The collection there covers the composer's entire oeuvre, from his dodecaphonic early works to his most recent compositions. The archive consists of letters, sound recordings, manuscripts from various stages in the creative process, and other documents. Also included are his many audio and program files, which capture his working methods that long have made use of computers, synthesizers, and samplers.  Because Reich kept meticulous care of his archive, virtually no original manuscript material has been seen in the open market. Even fewer opportunities are now likely since the archive was acquired by the Sacher Stiftung. We are aware of only one fragmentary autograph manuscript to come to the market: a passage of eight-bars from 'Variations for Winds Strings & Keyboards,' sold at Sotheby's London in 2009. This 1980-piece dates from later in Reich's career, and was but a tiny quotation from this work for orchestra. This fragment was sold at a charity auction for the War Child Foundation, and its presence on the market was then the first and last time a Reich manuscript of any kind was recorded at auction. No other Reich material has sold at auction before or since, and there have been no documented private sales. The present manuscript comprises the entire first part of Drumming, is in superb condition, and shows the beautiful graphic process by which Reich prepared his finished working manuscripts. This manuscript was acquired from Reich in the early 1970s, soon after the debut of the piece, and has remained since in the same private collection.  This is likely a unique opportunity to acquire a major manuscript from this ground-breaking American artist.

        A significant collection concerning Fluxus England West and linked or associated items, centred around Beau Geste Press and the travelling show FLUXshoe

      Beau Geste Press, Cullompton 1971 - 'Fluxus' (the word) was coined by George Maciunas as the title of a proposed magazine, but it instead came to denote a 'travelling anthology' of performances, held in New York and Europe during the early 1960s. As such, Fluxus is a name and an organisational framework, but it is not a movement and it has no manifesto. In the words of George Brecht, 'Individuals with something unnameable in common have simply naturally coalesced to publish and perform their work', doing so in far-off places and outside the capitalist confines of the art world. In June 1970, a 'fluxus only' travelling show was discussed by Mike Weaver, of the American Arts Documentation Centre, University of Exeter, and Ken Friedman, the Director of Fluxus West in the United States. In October, Mick Gibbs and David Mayor arrived in Exeter to study with Weaver as postgraduate students, and with Friedman's help they started work to get a show off the ground; Friedman supplied the banner 'Fluxus West in England' (which name can also be given as 'Fluxus England West'). After a year of living in Exeter and travelling around Europe in search of people who might contribute to the show, Mayor was invited by the Mexican artist Felipe Ehrenberg to live in the Devon countryside with him, his family, and his friends Chris Welch and Madeleine Gallard. Beau Geste Press, a community of duplicators, printers and craftsmen, was formed. The press, and the travelling show FLUXshoe (which finally began in October 1972), are central to what is understood by the name 'Fluxus England West'. Between 1971 and 1976, Beau Geste produced seventy-five items (including different editions of the same titles); forming its name from the words 'beautiful Gestetner', it did indeed produce beautiful books. As well as many books and other items published or printed by the press, this collection contains items from further afield, particularly around Europe, which bear upon the activities comprising Fluxus England West. There are also items which are conceptually compatible with Fluxus England West even if not part of it, and more recent items which work in the same tradition, with the same spirit. The map of interactions at the heart of Fluxus, the community and correspondences, are strongly evident, for example via mail art, the international scope of 'Schmuck' magazine, and many unusual and inventive publications. As well as a collection of Fluxus England West, this can be seen as a collection of small press publishing centred around Beau Geste Press. Supplemented only very slightly for this sale, the collection was gathered by Allen Fisher, who was published by Beau Geste and participated in FLUXshoe. The close community of the press, and the nature of much of the material here, inevitably mean that such collections are extremely rare, and probably restricted mostly to those who were there and who took part. Mayor's archive is held by the Tate, Ehrenberg's at Stanford University. Please contact us for a full catalogue of this collection.

        Charlie Chaplin - "His Last Day in America 1952" [From the estate of Pauline Kael]

      1971 - From the estate of Pauline Kael. An original Avedon print, titled and signed by the artist in 1971. Richard Avedon began his career as a fashion photographer in 1945, and he came to be known as the preeminent contemporary American portrait photographer. This image, of the one-time lovable Little Tramp posing as the Devil on his last day in the U.S., is one of Avedon's most famous, and one of the most famous images of Chaplin. Chaplin, who had long sought teenage girls as his lovers and wives, was hounded by years of persecution for his sexual proclivities and his left-leaning views. In 1944 he was involved in a high-profile scandal when he was indicted on charges involving a young actress he had brought to California and, although he was exonerated on all counts, the negative publicity began a series of events culminating in his voluntary exile from the U.S. eight years later. In addition, the FBI had stepped up its investigations of him as a result of his public statements in support of Russia and Soviet Communism. In 1952, when Chaplin left for England to promote his film "Limelight," the U.S. Attorney General used the opportunity to revoke his re-entry permit (Chaplin had never been an American citizen) unless Chaplin agreed to even more scrutiny of his private life. Chaplin opted to settle in Switzerland with his third wife, Oona O'Neill (daughter of Eugene O'Neill). This Avedon image is the final image of Chaplin in America and a pointed reference to his demonization by the American press and government. Pauline Kael's first film review, in 1953, was of Chaplin's "Limelight." She didn't like it, and it launched her career. 19-3/4" x 15-3/4". Fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Black Sun

      New York: Simon and Schuster, 1971. First edition. Hardcover. Very good/very good. SIGNED. 159pp. Octavo [21 cm] Black cloth. Spine rolled forward a bit; short contemporary gift inscription on the front free endsheet. In a price-clipped dust jacket, with mild age-toning. Inscribed by the author on the title page: "For___. Edward Abbey, Oracle, Arizona, May '86." The author's fourth novel. A fictional account of the author's time spent as a fire lookout on the North rim of the Grand Canyon. Abbey blends both the dying of his wife in a New Jersey hospital, and one Carol Turner, who disappeared into Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, into this bittersweet love story. Abbey himself proclaimed this to be his favorite of his books (I don't believe him) and Utah author Terry Tempest Williams once claimed that her grandmother, in a private audience, stated the same.

        Hexágono 71. No. 1/a (1971) through 13/e (1975) (all published)

      A complete series in 13 folders of the political artist's book-style journal under the editorial direction of Edgardo Antonio Vigo, which was distributed as an envelope or folder containing loose illustrations, visual poems, works "to be created", woodcuts, drawings, essays, collages, mail art elements, and calls for works by local and international authors, and containing contributions from a group of international artists and authors hailing from Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Uruguay, the United States, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom. Illustrated throughout. Square 4to. Original printed cardstock envelopes and paper folders, contents loose as issued. Some slight age-darkening and very minor foxing to some of the folders and envelopes. La Plata, Argentina 1971-1975. An important experimental mail art periodical from the South American avant-garde movement which rose up during the dictatorship of 1966-1973, Hexágono 71 contained no editorial commentary, page numbers, or editorial credits. There was not a fixed group of contributing artists either; rather, the issues were formed around the works that were sent in. Many of the works engaged with the violence of the military regime. Vigo wished to "share the necessity of breaking the dangerous suffocation that hovers over the universal creative-investigator's free expression." The issues were also systematized by a lettering system rather than sequential numbers. Hexágono 71 had a small subscription-based distribution centered around circles close to Vigo, both in the Judicial Courts, where he worked, and among his fellow artists. Vigo also would surreptitiously abandon issues in train cars, for the purpose of reaching an unknown audience.

        Signed U.S. Flag Flown to the Moon

      The Moon, 1971. fine. Silk American flag (4" X 6") carried to the Moon and back aboard Apollo 14. Fine condition (gleaming). This comes with an incontrovertible signed letter of provenance on Apollo stationery, but additionally and more pointedly (and reassuringly) this flag is titled and signed, in black ink, directly on 2 of its white stripes in the handwriting of Apollo 14 Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, "Flown to the Moon Aboard Kitty Hawk on Apollo 14, Edgar Mitchell, LMP" an undetachable authenticity, that is better than letters or certificates which can be shuffled (and shuffled they are), as the majority of these flags when seen (if seen) are glued at the corners to a printed certificate, from which they can be removed and replaced with any flag. Furthermore, left over (or faked up) certificates can have said "any flag" added, but not this one, since the signed stripes are indivisible from the flag, and they affirm exactly what it is, and do so on sight, a nice feature if you want to frame it.
