Chicago writer, painter and composer Jackson MacLow (1922) focused on the
"text" as it is spoken and heard. His instructions for performers often
include notes to "listen", not just to perform. Thus the other performers
as well as environmental sounds can influence the performance of any one
Open Secrets (XI, 1993) collects some of his compositions for
different techniques and settings.
His works for multitracked voices are well represented by the first Milarepa Gatha (1961), first of a series that would continue for many years, by
38th and 39th Merzgedichte In Memoriam Kurt Schwitters (1989),
Phoneme Dance In Memoriam John Cage.
His eccentric chamber music is documented by
Milarepa Quartet For Four Like Instruments (which "may be played on any four instruments of the same kind and range")
Lucas 1 To 29: For One Or More Instrumentalists (In Memoriam Morton Feldman And For The Musicians Of Germany) (1990).
