21. radiOM.org - John Cage in Conversation with Morton Feldman, Radio Happening 1 of 5 [5.062% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage in Conversation with Morton Feldman, Radio Happening 1 of 5 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 40 min Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: WBAI John Cage and Morton Feldman recorded four open-ended conversations at the studios of radio station WBAI in New York. These meetings spanned six months between July 1966 and January 1967, and were produced as five "Radio Happenings". Both men were at transitional points in their music. Cage had completed “Variations V” in 1965 and “Variations VI” and “Variations VII” in 1966, and would publish "A Year from Monday" in 1967. Most of Feldman's important work was yet to come. These conversations between two old friends, relaxed, smoking, and throwing out ideas, are full of laughter and long ponderous silences. They form an incredible historical record of their concerns and preoccupation with making music, art, society, and politics of the moment. In 1993 these conversations were transcribed and published as "Radio Happenings I-V" by Edition MusikText...

25. radiOM.org - Jim Nollman’s Cigarette Piece (1973) [5.013% Popularity: 0.00000]
Jim Nollman’s Cigarette Piece (1973) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 15 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Composer Jim Nollman of San Francisco, well known for his work with inter-species music, was also a member of the avant-garde group Music Music. This program is a recording made during the eighth night of his conceptual work, entitled “Cigarette Piece”, which was performed live over KPFA in 1973. The piece is scored for ten cigarette smokers and each night’s performance lasted as long as it took each of them to finish one cigarette. In this performance one smoker whirls a noisemaker for the duration that smoke is in his lungs. In addition three other smokers each ring a bell for the length of time each one inhales smoke. Three others performers exhale against suspended wind chimes, while the final three sound a gong each time they flick an ash. For perhaps the only time in the history of cancer causing chemicals, this “Cigarette Piece” lives up to the old adage of it being smooth and ...

While backing away from such a decision due to doubts about his ultimate preparedness for elected office, Zappa does not shy away from his criticisms of censorship, right wing politics, and irresponsible personal behavior. The program begins with a selection of Eastern European avant-garde rock music and traditional folk songs, giving listeners a sense of Zappa’s interest in world music. Amirkhanian and Zappa then discuss Zappa’s work with the Synclavier, which includes building a library of extended chords...

Andriessen is a third generation Dutch composer, whose work has been strongly influenced by his socialist politics. In this interview he discusses his work with two Dutch ensembles with leftist leanings and how, in such a situation, even a conductor is considered too authoritarian. The three also talk about the role the Dutch Government plays in financing the arts and how that differs from the situation in the United States. In addition, Andriessen describes three of his works, “Hoketus”, “Symphony for Open Strings”, and “Mausoleum”; what it was like to grow up in a family of famous composers; and how his politics influence which commissions he accepts and what type of ensembles he writes for. Musical Selections: Hoketus, for pan pipes, pianos, electric pianos, bass g...
