13. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 8, Concert 2: 02 “Incidental Music to Corneille's Cinna” by Lou Harrison [6.143% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 8, Concert 2: 02 “Incidental Music to Corneille's Cinna” by Lou Harrison Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 12 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) “Cinna” consists of a suite of incidental music created with Guggenheim Fellowship support to accompany a rod-puppet production of the classic French play, which did not materialize once the music was composed. Corneille's play “Cinna” is a grand political intrigue in which loyalty conflicts with revenge. Harrison's special "fully just 7-limit tuning""which produces a spectrum of finely-nuanced melodic semitone relationships and larger intervals of either ‘pure' or ‘poisonous' affect"is particularly appropriate to a theatre world obsessed with power inequities and strategic alliances, a world in which affinity is tempered by antipathy. Instead of the ‘totalitarian tonal regime' imposed by equal temperament (which often masquerades as democracy), just-intonation pitch relationship...

16. radiOM.org - Speaking of Music Reinbert de Leeuw, 1983 [5.936% Popularity: 0.00000]
Speaking of Music: Reinbert de Leeuw, 1983 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 66 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian interviews Dutch composer, pianist, and author Reinbert de Leeuw, recorded on November 10, 1983, as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series. De Leeuw plays and discusses the early piano music of Erik Satie, the performance of which has garnered the pianist a global reputation. De Leeuw’s particular interpretation of this music is quite different from the standard. His study of the life of Satie has given him many illuminating insights, some of which he shares in this fascinating program. De Leeuw also relates a number of amusing anecdotes about performing Satie’s “Vexation”, a work that is meant to be performed repeatedly for many hours at a time. (from KPFA Folio) Musical Selections: Ogives No. 1 (1886) (2:15) / Erik Satie -- Gnossiennes: Nos. 1-6 (1889-97) (18:32) / Erik Satie -...
17. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music of Denys Bouliane [5.915% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music of Denys Bouliane Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 129 min Event Type: Interview and Music In an interview recorded in June of 1987, Charles Amirkhanian visits composer Denys Bouliane at his home in Cologne, Germany. Bouliane was born in 1955 in Quebec, Canada, but moved to Germany to study with György Ligeti. Bouliane is a former rock guitarist who became interested in classical music when the father of a friend gave him a recording by Stravinsky, after which he quickly decided to pursue a career as a composer, although he didn’t even know how to read music. After an initial rejection he eventually got accepted to study music at Laval University and is currently a Professor of Composition at McGill University. His carefully crafted scores reveal the influence of Charles Ives, Conlon Nancarrow, and Ligeti, in a style which music critic Peter Niklas Wilson has called Magic Realism, the musical equivalent of the literature style of Jorge Luis Borges. In this interview, Boul...
18. radiOM.org - Radiofest: New American Music Whatever Happened to the Avant-Garde ? [5.913% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radiofest: New American Music: Whatever Happened to the Avant-Garde ? Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 30 min Event Type: Documentary This is the second, mostly self-contained, half of a program produced by the American Society of University Composers in conjunction with Radiofest: New American Music, in which the state of avant-garde music in the late 1970s is explored. The program begins with a look back at a typical avant-garde performance from the heady days of the 1960s, for which an audience gathered to witness the ignition of a single jet engine. After several failed attempts to get the engine lit using a match, during which some in the audience got closer to the jet than suggested, combustion was finally achieved leading to an immediate and uncontrolled exit from the area during which fences were trampled and one person broke their leg. In contrast, the two featured composers in this program, Donald Erb, and David Cope, talk about how the avant-garde of the late 1970s is in a state of refle...
