Alvin Lucier was born on May 14, 1931, in Nashua, New Hampshire. He was known as the composer of experimental music and sound installations that explore acoustic phenomena and auditory perception.
A year later, Ashley and Mumma invited the Chamber Chorus to the ONCE Festival. In 1966, Alvin reciprocated by inviting Ashley, Mumma, and mutual friend David Behrman to Brandeis for a concert of works by the four composers.
Based on the success of that concert, they embarked on a tour of the United States and Europe under the name the Sonic Arts Group. Performing and touring together for about a decade, the Sonic Arts Union became inactive in 1976.
One of Lucier’s best-known works is I Am Sitting in a Room (1969), in which he records himself narrating a text and then plays the recording back into the room, re-recording it.
