La Monte Young: The Melodic Version of The Second Dream of the High-Tension Line Stepdown Transformer of the Four Dreams of China

25 years ago La Monte Young came to Klangraum Krems Minoritenkirche for the Cathedral of Dreams Festival and directed his work “The Second Dream of the High-Tension Line Stepdown Transformer” in the installation “Dream Light” by his wife Marian Zazeela. The revival with his ensemble in the Minorite Church will be directed from abroad in America by the now 82-year-old musician. In the “Four Dreams of China” the cult figure of minimal music discovered the “Dream Chords” – La Monte Young heard in them “a striking image of sound and the timelessness of China”.
