RIP Maryanne Amacher
The highly-regarded, if under-documented, sound artist Maryanne Amacher has passed away, at age 71. The NYT graced her with several hundred words. Amacher was known for intensely physical work that utilized psycho-acoustic phenomena and high volume. Sundry memories have popped up around the internet: from Bill Brovold, Seth Nehil, Kyle Gann (with a lengthy comment from archivist and friend Micah Silver), and sundry more.
The Wire magazine has published online an article from 1999. New Music Box spoke to Amacher in 2004. And here's a series of videos of Amacher and Thurston Moore.
