11. radiOM.org - Composers in Conversation Music by Martin Bartlett & Alden Jenks [5.079% Popularity: 0.00000]
Composers in Conversation: Music by Martin Bartlett & Alden Jenks Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 43 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Three works of electronic music created at the Mills College Tape Center in the late 1960s. First up is “Zoomorph” by Canadian composer Martin Bartlett, followed by two pieces by San Francisco Bay Area based composer Alden Jenks. The Bay Area was a hotspot for American electronic music in the 1960s with the San Francisco Tape Center (later becoming the Mills Tape Center in 1966), attracting such talents as Pauline Oliveros, Morton Subotnick, and Ivan Tcherepnin, among others. Prior to the Tape Center, electronic music had been primarily produced in large European music studios, and by creating a forum in which young composers could easily experiment with new sounds and technologies, the Tape Center soon catapulted American electronic music into the limelight. Musical Selections: Zoomorph / Martin Bartlett -- Chez Elle...

15. radiOM.org - Imaginary Landscape Ingram Marshall [5.078% Popularity: 0.00000]
Imaginary Landscape: Ingram Marshall Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 105 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFK A live concert of music by Ingram Marshall, recorded in the KPFK studio in Los Angeles. Currently living in Connecticut, composer Ingram Marshall has lived and worked extensively in the San Francisco Bay Area. Educated at Lake Forest College, Columbia University, where he worked with Vladimir Ussachevsky, and California Institute of the Arts, where he worked with Morton Subotnick, Marshall went on to study gamelan music in Bali and Java in 1971.

In the mid-1970s Marshall began work on a number of pieces that combined the traditional Balinese flute called a gambuh wit...

17. radiOM.org - The World Premiere Performance of Cardenitas ‘68 by Robert Erickson [5.073% Popularity: 0.00000]
The World Premiere Performance of Cardenitas ‘68 by Robert Erickson Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 28 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Alan Rich A concert recording of “Cardinitas ‘68,” a work for soprano, tape, and instrumental ensemble composed by Robert Erickson. This recording represents the world premiere of the piece on June 5, 1968 at the University of California in San Diego, and features soprano Beverly Ogdon, accompanied by musicians conducted by Alan Johnson. The work was a result of a series of experiments with musical timbre, in which Erickson capitalized on the peculiar non-harmonic overtones produced by bells, plates, and rods that were specially constructed by the composer for use in “Cardinitas ‘68,” in addition to marble xylophones, fashioned after Chinese marble chimes, and acoustical stones used by the Japanese. Robert Erickson, was a noted author and educator, whose students included Morton Subotnick, Pauline Oliveros, Terry Riley, and Paul Dresher. He was one of the fir...
18. radiOM.org - Do It by Robert Erickson [5.071% Popularity: 0.00000]
Do It by Robert Erickson Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 19 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Alan Rich A recording of “Do It,” a 1968 composition by Robert Erickson in which words and phrases are used in a fashion that is reminiscent of the complex polyrhythms of African drumming, and the chaos of political campaign rhetoric. According to the composer in the program notes of a 1987 performance of the piece: “’Do It’ grew out of the sounds of the 1968 presidential campaign, the speeches of General MacArthur, television, radio and magazine advertising of that period, and a poem by Donald Peterson which I had known since 1966. I wanted to transform these rhetorics into musical experience, and everything about the compositional strategy reflects this aim. Not all of the words are meant to be understood; many aspects of language have been deliberately distorted or re-formed in order to bare the emotion the overt semantic content.” Robert Erickson, was a noted author and educator, whose students in...
19. radiOM.org - New Sounds San Jose The Fourth Annual Festival: Concert Two [5.070% Popularity: 0.00000]
New Sounds San Jose: The Fourth Annual Festival: Concert Two Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 74 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded on May 8, 1982, the second concert of the 4th annual New Sounds San Jose Festival featured Joan La Barbara presenting selections of music for voice, tape and electronics, most of which were her own compositions. Subtitled “Voice is the Original Instrument” the first half of this concert featured works where all the sound were created by the natural voice, amplified to bring out quiet sounds and particular qualities that would not be clearly audible without the use of amplification. While some of the pieces included multi-tracking, no electronic or tape manipulation was used and all one hears is either live or pre-recorded amplified voice. The second half of the concert included pieces by John Cage and Morton Subotnick, who is also La Barbara’s husband. While some of these pieces include additional instrumentation such as ghost electronics the focus rem...

Cal Arts: Disney’s Dough Takes Flight (1970) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 232 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA In September of 1970, the California Institute of the Arts opened its doors, thus embarking on a radical plan for art education, supported by the estate of the late Walt Disney. Several months prior to the start of its first academic year, Charles Amirkhanian and Richard Friedman visited the school, and talked with members of the extraordinary faculty who were to form the backbone of this remarkable intermedia educational institution. The program features an interview with Cal Arts provost, Herbert Blau, as well as discussions with various faculty members, and the Deans of each of the School’s major departments. Blau explains that the school was to be based on the modern reality of what art is, rather than more traditional academic formulations of what art was, or should be. Previous models for Cal Arts include the artistic apprenticeships during the Renaissance, the Bauh...
