Collage #1 (“Blue Suede”)

James Tenney

Collage #1 (“Blue Suede”) has been performed in San Francisco…

Collage #1 (“Blue Suede”), based on Elvis Presley’s version of Blue Suede Shoes was realized at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, in the electronic music studio established by Lejaren Hiller. It has long been considered something of a classic of American musique concrète.
