Welcome to

Other Minds (based in San Francisco) welcomes you to radiOM[ray-dee-om].org — the website that brings you the sounds of revelationary new music and the voices of the revelationists themselves.

Our offerings include interviews with some of the most influential composers of our time including Lou Harrison, Brian Eno, John Cage, Laurie Anderson, György Ligeti, and Anthony Braxton.

We also offer concerts, sound poetry performances, lectures and documentaries in classical music, jazz, experimental music and other forms.

The material you will find here is gleaned from thousands of hours of audio recordings from KPFA-FM radio in Berkeley (1949-1995), and concerts and talks produced by Other Minds in San Francisco (1993-2005).

We urge you to search our site often as new programs are added each month. Use of this site is free, but for unlimited access to the material registration is required.
