His work in each is often characterized by its visceral power, its clear-eyed critique of Western art traditions, its interest in social questions and relations of control, its technical virtuosity and wit.Conrad was an indisputable innovator.

Yesterday, Buffalo News arts critic Colin Dabrowski broke the news that composer, artist and filmmaker Tony Conrad had passed away earlier in the day at the age of 76. "Conrad, who taught in the University at Buffalo's media study department since 1976, was idolized by a generation of composers, musicians and artists who credit him with changing the course of American art and music with his seemingly endless series of inventive projects, performances and installations." Artforum adds that "Jack Smith, Mike Kelley, and Henry Flynt were among his many frequent collaborators.

A book in his collection, titled The Velvet Underground, ultimately gave rise to the name of Lou Reed’s eponymous band." » - David Hudson »
