Surprise!

Nothing to do with organised noise or performance,

except perhaps through the tenuous link of structure and form.

This book is the fruit of some 30 years of original research - and collecting.

There was no history, so I wrote it.

An Improvised Life - Poster

 

Ron Geesin: An Improvised Life

was shown on Sat 3 Oct 2015 in London,

followed by a Q&A with the Director, Tom McInnes.

Chaired by Robin Denselow.

This multi-source sound work grew from my lasting admiration of blackbird song and its resemblance to the syncopated phrasing in jazz. The eventual octophonic composition ran at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexill-on-sea, UK, through October and November 2014.

THE INTRODUCTION (David Chavannes)

THE END - illustrated talk

 

This was probably my last live performance - Recital Room, City Halls, Glasgow, 29th March 2014 - due to arthritis now affecting my left hand. The performance was filmed and may be issued later.

The story of my staggeringly fraught collaboration with Pink Floyd to create Atom Heart Mother (suite) is now published by The History Press. Already into its second printing (2013/08/26). The only place to buy it signed is here, well, there.

 See the complete performance, most faithfully captured by Lucida Productions at the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris on the 12th January 2012.

Yes, I went and did it! RonCycle1 - the journey of a melody was finally mixed at Mark Ayres' Studio  in the Summer of 2010 and is out on Tonefloat  in CD and LP (+CD) forms. Since it is a continuous work in 16 sections, I was not going to artificially split it for vinyl, but there was a natural silence that fell just right, so you've got it. I can do no better than give you the Notes in full. Get it from HEADSCOPE now.
