Panel Discussion on the Firing of the Co-directors of the Mills College Tape Music Center (April 20, 1969) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 41 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) This program consists of a panel discussion on the subject of the firing of the two co-directors of the Mills College Tape Music Center (Anthony Gnazzo and Lowell Cross). KPFA Music Director Howard Hersh interviews Gnazzo, Cross, and composers Eugene Turitz, Alden Jenks, Ann Kish, and student representative Susan Lynch about the action of the College. The College was offered time to respond but declined. This poignant discussion pits the intention of the original San Francisco Tape Music Center to be an open and public/private R & D organization against the College's desire to keep the newly acquired facility private for its students.

19. radiOM.org - Evening Concert Music from the Sky, Part II [5.862% Popularity: 0.00000]
Evening Concert: Music from the Sky, Part II Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 99 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA On September 17, 1979, at Mills College in Oakland, California, Bulgarian conceptual artist, Alzek Misheff presented his spectacle, “Music from the Sky, Part II”, from a balloon high flying above the audience, with loudspeakers blaring computer derived sounds, based on a graphic score using slides of outer space. The slides themselves were projected onto a screen halfway between the earth and the balloon. Why would an artist choose to create such an event? Is it art? These questions and more come to mind whenever a conceptual artist working outside of conventional media announces an unusual presentation. In Misheff’s case, it is because he was interested in the relationship between language and expectation. As he explains, “What I do is choose a title, which may have strong metaphoric charges, send out invitations ... and then I carry out the metaphors lite...
