Ode To Gravity:
Avant Garde Music in the Netherlands

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 114 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA

A fascinating visit with pianist Ton Hartsuiker and composer David Porcelijn, two prominent avant-garde figures in Holland and producers of that country’s nationwide weekly radio program, Musica Nova. Recorded January 15, 1974, in Hartsuiker’s home in The Hague, here is a lighthearted glimpse into the bowels of the obscure and little publicized aspects of experimental music in the Netherlands. Some of the most fascinating examples of Dutch composing are heard as well as Hartsuiker’s fishbowl and his Bechstein piano. (from KPFA Folio)
