21. radiOM.org - Music Not to Read By John Cage Interviewed by Jonathan Cott, 1963 [7.241% Popularity: 0.00000]
Music Not to Read By: John Cage Interviewed by Jonathan Cott, 1963 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 54 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA/WNYC Additional Media Files (click to view) A lively 1963 interview of John Cage by Jonathan Cott. The discussion covers several aspects of Cage's creative process and aesthetic. At every turn Cott antagonizes Cage with challenging questions. In addition, he quotes from numerous sources (including Norman Mailer, Michael Steinberg, Igor Stravinksy and others) criticizing Cage and his music. Includes a performance of “Aria with Fontana Mix” featuring vocalist Cathy Berberian. This program is notable particularly for the challenging stance of the host, and is an unusual document that provides many moments of amusement as Cage parries Cott's thrusts with a veritable tai chi practice of music theory. The exchange over the quality of Cage's “Concert for Piano and Orchestra” vs. Schoenberg's “Piano Concerto” is one of the funniest exchanges in the history of...
22. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity John Cage (Special Edition, III of IV) [7.232% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: John Cage (Special Edition, III of IV) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 116 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian produced this special edition of his Ode To Gravity program for nationwide audiences over the NPR satellite. Amirkhanian plays a number of Cage’s compositions, including “Credo in Us” and “Roanji” as well as Cage reading from his Diary. Amirkhanian gives background on Cage, including the influence of Henry Cowell, Arnold Schoenberg and Buddhism on his music, leading into a summary of Cage's style. Cage discusses how he met filmmaker Oskar Fischinger through Galka Shire around 1935, which led him to composing music for percussion instruments. Cage relates this music to silence and Zen Buddhism, moving away from the usual motivation of "music as communication" towards "music as a means of sobering and quieting the mind, thus subjecting it to divine influences." Cage also discusses his "Credo in U...
23. radiOM.org - The Premiere Performance of John Cage’s 33 1/3 (Nov. 21, 1969) [7.231% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Premiere Performance of John Cage’s 33 1/3 (Nov. 21, 1969) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 44 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA A live recording of the premiere performance of John Cage’s “33 1/3” at the University of California at Davis on Nov. 21, 1969. The work was really a sort of participatory sound installation in which 24 turntables with independent stereo speakers and almost 300 LP records were placed around a large room without any chairs. The audience that entered the room didn't get any instructions, although there was an “attendant’ on hand to assist with operating the equipment if needed. The end result was that after a while, people started putting records on the phonographs and making sounds of their own as well. In classic Cageian style this indeterminate work breaks down the barriers between audience and performer, and sound and music, all the while requiring nothing more from the audience/participant than an open ear and curious mind. Musical Selections: 33 1/3 (1969...
24. radiOM.org - John Cage and David Tudor in Concert in San Francisco, Jan. 16, 1965 [7.227% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage and David Tudor in Concert in San Francisco, Jan. 16, 1965 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 75 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded by KPFA Radio on the 39th birthday of David Tudor, this historic concert with John Cage thundered through the halls of the sculpture court of the San Francisco Museum of Art before a capacity audience that included the late Darius Milhaud in his wheelchair and other Bay Area arts dignitaries. The volume levels were raucous and the medium of live electronic music never more vibrant. Opening with a work performed on a single cymbal with contact microphones agitated by a wide gamut of objects, and concluding with “Variations IV” in which loudspeakers outside the performance space in various hallways interacted with speakers next to the audience, this was truly an affair to remember. Our thanks to the John Cage Trust, C.F. Peters Music Publishing, Christian Wolff and the Estate of David Tudor for their cooperation in allowing us to revive this long...
25. radiOM.org - Source Program No. 3: The first lecture in John Cage’s class on “Music in Dialogue” [7.225% Popularity: 0.00000]
Source: Program No. 3: The first lecture in John Cage’s class on “Music in Dialogue” Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 109 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) This program contains the lecture given by John Cage on October 7, 1969, at the University of California Davis during the first meeting of his class on “Music in Dialogue”. In typical Cagian style the rather informal presentation covers such subjects as Buckminster Fuller, Zen Buddhism, philosophy, and the role of art and technology in modern society. The obvious delight of the students at having the opportunity to be taught by such a revolutionary composer is quite evident in their laughter and questions. Genres: New Music ; Avant-Garde Subject: Fuller, R. Buckminster (Richard Buckminster), 1895-1983 ; Music -- History and criticism ; Philosophy ; Zen Buddhism ; Art and society People: Austin, Larry ; Cage, John Recording Date: 10/7/1969 First Broadcast Date: 11/4/1969 Liste...
26. radiOM.org - John Cage in Conversation with Morton Feldman, Radio Happening 4 of 5 [7.217% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage in Conversation with Morton Feldman, Radio Happening 4 of 5 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 44 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...
