London, 3 February – 4 March 2000
The Lisson Gallery is pleased to present Max Neuhaus' first exhibition in London.
"In our daily lives, our eye and ear are constantly working together as a closely linked team to form our perception of the world. Traditionally practitioners in the plastic arts have adjusted this perception through the vision, forming with shape and colour. I on the other hand work with our sense of hearing."
Max Neuhaus was renowned for his interpretation of contemporary music while still in his twenties. In the early sixties, he toured America as a percussion soloist. The world of the percussionist is one focused on the sound timbre: Neuhaus travelled with one thousand kilos of percussion instruments to perform his solo repertoire. He extended the palette of sound colour by inventing several early electro-acoustic instruments. His solo album recorded in 1968 stands as one of the first examples of what is now called live electronic music.Read more
