Anthony Schmalz "Tony" Conrad (March 7, 1940 – April 9, 2016) was an American avant-garde video artist, experimental filmmaker, musician, composer, sound artist, teacher, and writer. Active in a variety of media since the early 1960s, he was a pioneer of both structural film and drone music. He performed and collaborated with a wide range of artists over the course of his career, most prominently the 1960s New York experimental music group Theatre of Eternal Music.
Tony Conrad died on 9 April in Hospice Buffalo, Cheektowaga, after a battle with prostate cancer, reported The Buffalo News. He was 76 years old. Conrad is often referred to as the pioneer of drone music in the West. But when he moved to New York City in the early 1960s, he also got heavily involved in film. The Flicker (1966), for example, is often cited as a central work in structuralist cinema.
Joan of Arc is a 2006 album by minimalist composer Tony Conrad. The piece, which lasts unbroken for over an hour, was originally written by Conrad as a soundtrack to accompany Piero Heliczer's short film of the same name. Outside the Dream Syndicate is a 1973 album by United States avant-garde composer Tony Conrad in collaboration with German krautrock group Faust. The album marks Conrad's first and only musical release for many years, and remains his best known musical work. It is considered a classic of minimalist and drone music.
Tony Conrad performing at the Knitting Factory. You don't know who I am, but you've been affected by the things I did," Tony Conrad told The Guardian in what may well have been his last interview. Over its first 40 minutes, the fast-cycling string drones of Conrad and Cale carry the performance. You can really hear them improvising with each other - a key part of Conrad's understanding of the minimalist revolution. The plodding percussion of Werner Diermaier is also tuned in sympathy with Conrad, resulting in a single-minded thrum that quickly turns transcendent.
Conrad's single note drone floating in space as always. The musicians manage to create an enormous amount with almost no resources whatsoever, and they manage to make an eerily uplifting sound although it sounds like they're straining to avoid any form of self expression at all. The original album contained just those two mighty slabs of noise, but the reissue includes some bonus items. But the second half of the LP ("From the Side of the Machines") reversed the marquee sequence and put the Germans in charge of building an equally relentless groove, "more like rock 'n' roll", according to Conrad. Clearly, his notion of rock music wasn't grounded in the usual roots of Rhythm and Blues. And Faust, being Faust, responded with one of their best and most quintessential lockstep jams.
