Morning Concert:
An Interview with Janet Sherbourne and Mark Lockett

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 136 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA

From a program recorded on March 1, 1984, Charles Amirkhanian interviews English composer/musicians, vocalist Janet Sherbourne and pianist Mark Lockett. The two were in the San Francisco Bay Area for a concert of contemporary English music ranging from experimental, truly minimal, consonant music, by such composers as Howard Skempton, as well as a selection of more New Wave pop music. The three are joined by Paul Dresher, curator of the concert series featuring Sherbourne and Lockett for a general discussion about the contemporary classical music scene in England and what it was like to work with such luminaries as Skempton, Cornelius Cardew, and Brian Eno. The discussion is highlighted by numerous examples of the types of music including a number of tracks by Sherbourne’s and Lockett’s 1980’s style pop band, The Copy.
