Born in New Hampshire in 1931. Lives in Connecticut. Clearly distinguishing himself from performers and composers in the traditional sense, Alvin LUCIER has created a large number of conceptual and spatial works using various electronic technologies beyond the normal framework of "music" since the beginning of the 1950s. He has also produced many installations focusing on the vibratory phenomenon we call "sound." LUCIER has been invited to exhibit installations and to give performances in countries all over the world, including Japan. He is currently a professor at Wesleyan University.
