David Tudor (Philadelphia, PA, US, 1926-Tomkins Cove, NY, US, 1996) made a name for himself in the 1950s as a leading pianist specializing in contemporary music. His gift for executing the underdetermined and demanding scores of composers like John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and Christian Wolff with their complex and sometimes equivocal instructions was unrivalled. Beginning in the 1960s, Tudor transformed himself into a composer-performer and live electronic artist.

At the same time, he struck up collaborations with artists in other fields. Until his death in 1996, he realized numerous works that straddled the divisions between composition and performance, object, and installation art.

Teasing Chaos. David Tudor is the first presentation of David Tudor’s groundbreaking achievements in the field of live electronics and his interdisciplinary projects. The exhibition presents a selection of Tudor’s collaborative works, archival materials, video and audio recordings, expanding the narrative of Tudor as interpreter and pianist and, in terms of reception history, closing a gap in the perception of this remarkable artist. The exhibition was produced in close cooperation with the collective Composers Inside Electronics (CIE), founded by Tudor.
