The Black Record (31 VII 69 10:26 - 10:49 PM / 23 VIII 64 2:50:45 - 3:11 AM The Volga Delta)



Features Marian Zazeela in addition to La Monte Young, and is absolutely breathtaking.
Young and Zazeela recorded their first full length album in 1969 in Munich for Heiner Friedrich's Edition X label.
It was Friedrich who later found the couple's Dream House in Harrison Street, New York.
Side one is a section of Map Of 49's Dream, performed by Young on sinewave drone and voice, with vocal accompaniment by Zazeela.
Side two's extract from Study For The Bowed Disc features the duo bowing a gong given to them by sculptor Robert Morris.
He had made it for his dance piece, War, and asked Young to play it for the performance.
Afterwards Morris presented the gong to Young, and he started to experiment on it with double bass bows.
Long before Keiji Haino adopted black to shroud himself and his work, Marian Zazeela was embedding her calligraphic lettering and designs in purple and black.
The point is to focus on her artwork while concentrating on the vocal/sinewave drones of Young's dream music.
