11. radiOM.org - A Concert of Experimental Music from England [4.475% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Concert of Experimental Music from England Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 102 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA On March 21, 1974 the San Francisco Conservatory New Music Ensemble under the direction of John Adams performed a concert of avant-garde and experimental music, by mostly young English composers. Works heard include an arrangement of an early 20th century waltz, a song based on a Chinese melody by Cornelius Cardew, and a rondo by Christopher Hobbs. Also heard are two pieces by Gavin Bryars, one inspired by the story of the Titanic, and another by a film of a London tramp singing an old hymn. Both of Bryars’ pieces, which he introduced himself, were accompanied by visual projections of pictures or films and have a beautiful yet haunting quality to them. Much of this work is based on reworkings of Victorian waltz melodies and sentimental salon pieces. Most of the pieces are consonant, some even very emotional. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: The Eden Valley Waltz (ca. 1900) (...

15. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music of Vincent Plush (1983) [4.461% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music of Vincent Plush (1983) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 83 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded in 1983, Charles Amirkhanian is joined in the KPFA studios by the Australian composer Vincent Plush, who was in the United States for an extended fellowship at Yale University. Amirkhanian questions Plush about his personal history and musical influences, as well as the current state of contemporary classical music in Australia. Plush describes a growing trend among younger Australian composers, who, inspired by the likes of Percy Grainger and Peter Sculthorpe, were seeking to create a truly Australian form of music. Music that is informed by their common history as European convicts and cast-offs, a connection with the indigenous population, and close proximity to Indonesia and other East Asian countries. The first composition heard in this program, “Bakery Hill Rising” is reflective of this tendency, as it commemorates one of the f...
16. radiOM.org - A Concert of Works by Robert Moran and Morton Feldman (August 31, 1968) [4.004% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Concert of Works by Robert Moran and Morton Feldman (August 31, 1968) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 21 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded at the De Young Museum in San Francisco on August 31, 1968, this program features two works by Robert Moran and Morton Feldman. The first piece heard is the world premiere of “Scream Kiss No. 1,”a theatrical work for harpsichord and pre-recorded tape by Robert Moran, and performed here by Margaret Fabrizio on the harpsichord. This work was used in a film realization by Paul Crowley, which also featured Ms. Fabrizio on screen, however it is uncertain whether the film was shown during this performance. This piece is followed by “Four Instruments” by Morton Feldman, a very quiet and meditative work of aleatoric music. The San Francisco Bay Area was a center of avant-garde contemporary classical music in the latter half of the 20th century and this recording captures some of that adventurous musical programing, and should be of interest to any ...
17. radiOM.org - Concerts by Composers No. 06: Works by Jon English, Candace Natvig, Yasunao Tone, & Gregory Sandow [3.997% Popularity: 0.00000]
Concerts by Composers: No. 06: Works by Jon English, Candace Natvig, Yasunao Tone, & Gregory Sandow Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 54 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA In the late 1970s and early 1980s the Experimental Intermedia Foundation held a series of exciting concerts of avant-garde and electro-acoustic music at Phill Niblock’s loft in the SoHo district of New York City. These concerts were then packaged into a series of hour-long radio programs entitled “Concerts by Composers” and distributed to interested radio stations around the United States. This sixth program in the series features music by Candace Natvig, Jon English and Yasunao Tone, with additional commentary by music critic Gregory Sandow. The program begins with a solo composition by Candace Natvig, which is based on a Pygmy melody and scored for violin and voice. This is followed by a joint composition by Natvig and Jon English in which each sings as well as playing their respective instruments, violin and trombone. T...
18. radiOM.org - Early Improvisations with Pauline Oliveros, Loren Rush, Terry Riley, and Others [3.994% Popularity: 0.00000]
Early Improvisations with Pauline Oliveros, Loren Rush, Terry Riley, and Others Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 59 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: CCM Archive A series of improvisations, recorded around 1957, and featuring Pauline Oliveros, Loren Rush, Terry Riley, Laurel Johnson, Robert Erickson, and Bill Butler. The instrumentation for these five pieces is varied and unspecified, but seems to include piano, percussion, ocarina, trombone, and a plucked string instrument that may be a koto. The first improvisation is used as accompaniment for a lengthy recitation. These early experiments with aleatoric and improvisatory music serves as a valuable historical record chronicling the emergence of a new musical aesthetic that was to dominate contemporary classical music for much of the latter half of the 20th century, and hints at the type of minimal and chance compositions for which many of the performers would later become famous. As such these performances should be of great interest, and prov...

This interview/lecture from 1984 is incredibly insightful for both Anderson fans and those who have fond memories of the experimentation being done in the form of challenging and intelligent "pop" songs during the early to mid-1980s. In Part 1 of this interview, recorded before a live audience of 1000 as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium's Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian speaks with Laurie Anderson about songs from her album, “Mister Heartbreak”. Anderson discusses the influences on many of the songs on that album including “Kokoku” and “Sharkey's Day”. In addition, the composer explains this album's departure from her last release, “Big Science”, which contained the hit ...
