On Walls and Music

American Academy Lecture

New York-based composer Raphael Mostel is well known for his score for, and multi-media production of, the classic picture-book The Travels of Babar. He has also composed completely different works for ancient ambiguous-pitched instruments, primarily of Himalayan origin, which have been characterized by the New York Times as “worlds away from any popular, classical, or even Asian tradition,” and has collaborated with noted architect Steven Holl in teaching the internationally acclaimed seminar "Architectonics of Music." In this lecture, Mostel draws on his personal history to explore the diverse physical, social, and political implications of both ancient and modern concepts of sound and barriers.
