Tony Conrad

Known for his experimental films, Tony Conrad (1940) is also one of the pioneers of minimalist music, particularly through his participation in the mid-1960s in the legendary Theatre of Eternal Music whose performances explored the stretching of musical time. The series of Yellow Movies that he produced in the early 1970s take the form of frames painted in black on large sheets of paper, the interior of the frames filled with different types of emulsions, mostly cheap white or yellow paint.
