42:40 Bill Dietz’s answer + track

Bill Dietz is a composer and writer, born in Arizona, and living in Berlin since 2003. Since 2012, he is co-chair of the Music/Sound Department in Bard College’s Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts. His artistic and theoretical work centers on reception, specifically on listening - its histories, forms, and performance. The work is often presented in festivals, museums, and academic journals, but also in apartment buildings, magazines, and on public streets. Large-scale works have been realized in sites such as Le Corbusier's "Cité radieuse" in Marseille, where he worked long-term with inhabitants of the apartment building to articulate social structures with sound, or along the entire length of "Im Stavenhof," a street in Cologne along which he synchronized all participating inhabitants' home stereos. He has published two books of listening scores - one on his "Tutorial Diversions" series, meant to be performed at home; and the other, made up of "concert pieces," based on historical and contemporary audience behavior and staging.
