Ode To Gravity:
Do Fraig Amors, etc...

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 46 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

Another excellent example of an early Ode to Gravity program produced by Charles Amirkhanian. This time it is an interesting mix of music and spoken word, ranging from Medieval Germanic choral music, avant-garde orchestral works, American popular music from the 1920s or 1930s, canary’s chirping, spell casting, bowling advice, and other assorted sounds. Inventive, experimental, and always amusing this Ode to Gravity program really highlights the verbal and musical creativity of Amirkhanian and the artistic environment that was Berkeley California in the early 1970s.
