In the late 1970s and early 1980s the Experimental Intermedia Foundation held a series of exciting concerts of avant-garde and electro-acoustic music at Phill Niblock’s loft in the SoHo district of New York City. These concerts were then packaged into a series of hour-long radio programs entitled “Concerts by Composers” and distributed to interested radio stations around the United States. This eleventh program in the series features music by Rhys Chatham, David Behrman, Anne Klingensmith, Paul DeMarinis, & Takehisa Kosugi. This program begins a work for solo guitar composed by Rhys Chatham and performed by the composer in March 1981 at a concert held at the Experimental Intermedia Foundation in New York City. This is followed by two excerpts from a collective improvisation with David Behrman on synthesizer, Anne Klingensmith on sarangi, Paul DeMarinis, on a modified Speak and Spell , which is a children’s toy, & Takehisa Kosugi on violin and voice It was also recorded at the Experimental Intermedia Foundation in May of 1980. The production and distribution of this program was originally funded by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts, & the Beards Fund.
