Charlemagne Palestine was born Chaim Moshe Palestine in Brooklyn, New York of a Jewish immigrant family from Odessa and Minsk in 1947. He began at six years old to sing traditional Jewish cantorial music in the synagogue. In the 50s, he accompanied on exotic hand drums poets and musicians like Allen Ginsberg, Peter Orlovsky, Gregory Corso and Tiny Tim. He then became the Carillonneur of St Thomas Church next to the Museum of Modern Art where he began to invent a radical unique approach of bell sonorities which could be heard each afternoon on the street and in the sculpture garden of the museum from 1963 to 1969. At the New York University, he began composing electronic musics at the NYU Electronic Music Studio run by Morton Subotnick where he worked with electronic synthesiser oscillators and filters which he would name “Spectral Continuum”. Later Subotnick invited him in 1969 to relocate to Los Angeles and participate in the creation of a new radical school for multi-media, arts, music, dance and theatre known as the California Institute of the Arts. There he met happening artist inventor Allan Kaprow, video pioneer Nam Jun Paik, avant-garde composer James Tenney, fluxus artists Emmett Williams, Dick Higgins, Alison Knowles and Judson Dance Theatre member and artist Simone Forti with whom Palestine created a unique music and dance form called Illuminations in 1970, which they have continued to perform irregularly over the last 45+ years even just recently at Pompidou Center, Paris and MOMA, Nyc. At Cal Arts he developed many different practices: electronic and acoustical sound works, body performance art, video art and multi-media installations. With Forti he was invited for the first time to Europe to perform in a festival in Rome in 1972 where he met La Monte Young, Phil Glass, Steve Reich, Terry Riley. With his revolutionary solo piano work “Strumming”, he was included in the new musical trend known as “Minimal Music”. In the 70s he became a celebrated and provocative Soho artist encountering and dialoguing with John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, Claus Oldenburg, Andy Warhol, Len Lye, Merce Cunningham, Vito Acconci, Marisol, Dennis Oppenheim, Laurie Anderson, Gilbert and George, Trisha Brown, Gordon Matta-Clark…
