Sampling and the Music of Henry Gwiazda

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 47 min

Minnesota-based composer and multi-media artist Henry Gwiazda visited the KPFA studios on March 15, 1990 to talk to Charles Amirkhanian. Using everyday sounds from our urban domestic landscape and sampling famous rock songs, Gwiazda has fashioned energetic, disturbing portraits of contemporary life, several of which are included in this program. At the end of the program the composer fields question and comments from the listening audience. (from KPFA Folio)
