Additional Media Files (click to view)

Composer Anthony Gnazzo introduces a number of his tape compositions, two of which were finished especially for this program. In addition Charles Amirkhanian plays his tape composition “Audience”, which incorporates ambient sound recordings made in the garage and stairwell of the Oakland Museum and at Marineworld/Africa USA, mixed with the sound of his kitchen milk steamer. When not listening to each others works the two just generally have fun in the KPFA studios. This is another funny and fantastic program by the dynamic duo of text-sound composition.
