out there ... songs on conceptual art


"Artists Crystal Baxley and Stefan Ransom created Songs on Conceptual Art by inviting musicians and artists to compose original songs based on Sol LeWitt's Sentences on Conceptual Art. LeWitt's text, originally published in 1969, is one of the most important documents of the Conceptual Art movement. In an effort to expose this essential text to a wider audience, artist John Baldessari improvised melodies to each of the 35 sentences in his 1972 video piece Baldessari Sings LeWitt. Baxley and Ransom’s Songs on Conceptual Art shares Baldessari’s intentions and opens new points of access for LeWitt’s Sentences through these musical interpretations."
This is a fantastic collection and wonderful idea, I'm working on a similar project at the moment with Gertrude Stein's sentences from her text Two: ... so very inspiring. Love a good out there song.
