Music with Roots in the Aether is a seven-part series of video portraits of notable American composers, in interviews staged as “landscapes” and in performance. Sonic Arts Union Retrospective features the segments on David Behrman, Gordon Mumma, and Alvin Lucier, engaging the composers in friendly and insightful conversations and showing performances of their work.
Gordon Mumma is interviewed on a football field (after a brief bit of bike repair), followed by a performance of Some Voltage Drop: Simulcast, Schoolwork, Telepos/Foxbat.
