San Francisco based didjeridu musician and KPFA radio show host, Stephen Kent, presents a preview of OM 12: A Festival of New Music, which was scheduled to be held in December of 2006 in San Francisco. After playing works by Per Nørgård, Markus Stockhausen and Tara Bouman, all featured composers and musicians at OM 12, Kent is joined in the KPFA studios by composer Peter Sculthorpe. The Tasmanian born and Australian based composer had recently revised his String Quartet No. 16 to include didjeridu and the work was to have its world premier at the Festival with Stephen Kent performing. In this interview the two discuss the influence Australian Aboriginal music has had on Sculthorpe’s work and listen to a couple of his compositions based on native songs and melodies.

Note: Recordings of all the OM 12 concerts are also available on radiOM.org
