Morning Concert:
The Music of Tui St. George Tucker

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 132 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA

World traveling composer and microtonalist Tui St. George Tucker visited the Bay Area for six months to renew her acquaintances with her home state of California. Now living in North Carolina after a long career in lower Manhattan as an important member of the experimental scene and programmer on KPFA’s sister station WBAI, she visits with Charles Amirkhanian, spouts off on the role of creativity in modern culture, and introduces a selection of her music. The two also take suggestions from the listening audience to name her string quartet. (from KPFA Folio)
