The Iconic Robert Ashley on "Condensation of Chromium Culture"


From the late Robert Ashley -

"This work of Smith's is a behemoth; this a music engulfed in a torrent of noisy, yet partially restored, small transformations. 

Perhaps I can evoke the appropriate sense of quizzical reaction as follows. Mathematicians may conceivably be said to be somewhat rational and not necessarily two-legged, and cyclists necessarily two-legged and not rational. 

But what of an individual that counts his eccentricities both mathematics and cycling? A small digression, but poignant all the same if you are able to withstand the duration of this work. 

Spherical, elongated and a spectacle of musical geometry. Time invested wisely."
