An Interview with Henry Brant on Spatial Music

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 24 min
Event Type: Interview Program Origin: C Amirkhanian

Charles Amirkhanian talks with Gerhard Samuel and composer, Henry Brant, who was visiting from Vermont for the world premiere of his “Kingdom Come” by the Oakland Symphony Orchestra and the Oakland Youth Orchestra. The three discuss Brant’s experiments with “spatial” or antiphonal music, and the need for new adjustable concert halls that can accommodate the varied spatial demands of such works as “Kingdom Come.” That work was to feature the regular Orchestra playing fairly typical 20th century classical music on the main stage, while the Youth Orchestra, separated into two groups, played more liberated, new music, in the balcony. Also discussed is the system of oblique harmony which Brant developed when he was 16 years old. “Kingdom Come” was premiered in Oakland in a series of concerts on April 14-16, 1970.
