11. radiOM.org - Speaking of Music David Lang [6.245% Popularity: 0.00000]
Speaking of Music: David Lang Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 125 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer David Lang, on February 15, 1990, as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series. Lang plays recordings of two of his orchestral works, including the world premier performance of his “Eating Live Monkeys”. Lang talks about some of the difficulties of writing new music for orchestras, including the typical lack of rehearsal time. Lang also describes his compositional techniques and his somewhat heretical opinion that notes are not the most significant part of his works. A self-described post-ugly music composer Lang’s compositions try to go beyond the dissonance that marked much of 20th century music, while still salvaging their ability to challenge both the listener and performer. In addition to his composing Lang is also one of the founders of the New York based Bang on a Can Festival, one of the premiere American...

14. radiOM.org - Speaking of Music Morton Feldman, Jan. 30, 1986 [6.238% Popularity: 0.00000]
Speaking of Music: Morton Feldman, Jan. 30, 1986 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 97 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a recording made on January 30, 1986 as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian interviews Morton Feldman and asks him right at the start if his music is Hermetic. The answers take us on a whirlwind tour of this composer's opinions, philosophy, criticisms, recollections and observations. There are excerpts from his “Piano and String Quartet” as well as his “Violin and Orchestra”. Feldman indicates that his compositions, which are usually lengthy, can be compared to the novels of Proust or the drinking of fine wine: and are to be sipped rather than gulped. Don't give up listening until you find out why Fred Astaire danced so well, or why Beethoven wrote his C-sharp minor String Quartet; Feldman provides the answers! Thanks to the Estate of Morton Feldman for permission to share this historic interview. All R...

Prior to the start of the concert, Charles Amirkhanian, moderated a panel discussion in which three of the featured composers, (Glass, Fong, and Chen), discussed their works. Adam Fong explains why the score for his piece “Sunlight”, has no written notes on the page. Instead the piece, which is meant to portray the “motion” of the sun in a single day, as felt through the heat and light it gives to the earth, has a score which provides guidelines for pitch, dynamics, and tempi but leaves the details up to the performer’s discretion. Chen Yi then describes how her “China West Suite” a work in four movements, was inspired by traditional Chinese, Mongolian, and Tibet...
