Max Neuhaus, musician and pioneering ambient-sound artist, is dead of cancer at 69. Neuhaus’ Sound Figure was installed permanently outside the the Menil’s north entrance in May. One of the first to explore the way sound could be used to transform spaces, Neuhaus gave up traditional music in 1968, and began a long association with Dominique De Menil, who he met at a dinner party.
