For Songs on Conceptual Art, Crystal Baxley and Stefan Ransom â€¨invited musicians to compose original songs inspired by Sol LeWittâ€™s Sentences on Conceptual Art (1969). LeWitt wrote this list of 35 statements at a time when artists were radically expanding notions of what art could be and what artists could do, with proclamations like â€œIdeas can be works of artâ€ (Sentence #10). To expose this significant text to a larger public, artist John Baldessari improvised melodies to each of the 35 sentences in his 1972 video piece Baldessari Sings LeWitt.
Inspired by Baldessariâ€™s intention to open up the Sentences to new audiences, Baxley and Ransom asked a different musician to create a song for each sentence. Some of the musicians used the text verbatim, some of the musicians altered, expanded upon or commented on the text, and some didnâ€™t use words in their songs at all. Sentences were assigned sentences on a first-come, first serve basis, and the songs are in the order of the original text.
