On April 28 New Age music artist Joanna Brouk died. A representative from Numero Group, who released her career retrospective “Hearing Music” last year, confirmed the news. She was 68.
Pitchfork.com has the following story:
“While studying literature at Berkeley, she became interested in the connection between sound and poetry. She began experimenting with synthesizers and field recordings at the nearby Mills College for Contemporary Music. Brouk’s teachers at Mills included Terry Riley and Robert Ashley. “It’s the space between the notes where things started happening,” she said of her approach to music in a 2016 interview. “So many virtuosos want to play fast to show their technique. But you should slow it down.””
