about

songsonconceptualart.com

Artists Crystal Baxley and Stefan Ransom created Songs on Conceptual Art by inviting musicians and artists to compose original songs based on Sol LeWitt's Sentences on Conceptual Art. LeWitt's text, originally published in 1969, is one of the most important documents of the Conceptual Art movement. In an effort to expose this essential text to a wider audience, artist John Baldessari improvised melodies to each of the 35 sentences in his 1972 video piece Baldessari Sings LeWitt. Baxley and Ransom’s Songs on Conceptual Art shares Baldessari’s intentions and opens new points of access for LeWitt’s Sentences through these musical interpretations.

Track Name: Caspar Sonnet - 7. The artist's will is secondary to the process he initiates from idea to completion. His wilfulness may only be ego.
You’ll notice if I’ve wandered by the precipice, a shadow flickering asunder
Hungry ghost

Deflowering the pleasantries of all the peasants shuffling in half devotion
Hollowing

Those staggering lone villagers compel my hunger for lifelessness, none withstanding
Mincing words

I find it moving that they’re cowering in such scarcity not shoving but throwing shovels
Shallow graves

Devouring the likelihood of taking my own chances
“I’ll withstand mirroring”
