Other Minds Festival: OM 20: Panel Discussion & Concert 2 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 157 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) 2015 marked the 20th anniversary of the Other Minds Festival of New Music. Other Minds Executive & Artistic Director Charles Amirkhanian explained the 20th anniversary as an opportunity to reflect on two decades’ worth of prescient programming. "As we look back at the nearly 200 composers we've brought to San Francisco for these gatherings, it seemed a good time to tip our hat to some of our most surprising discoveries who have gone on to make signal contributions to international concert life. We'll also pay tribute to the late Peter Sculthorpe, who had accepted an invitation to be with us as our elder statesman, and the legendary Lou Harrison, whose last work was composed for our 2002 festival and our American steel guitar soloist David Tanenbaum, and will be reprised on our opening night."

Other Minds Festival: OM 12: Panel Discussion & Concert 3 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 125 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian moderates a panel discussion with the composers featured in the third concert of OM 12. Markus Stockhausen and Tara Bouman describe the various techniques they use in their performance of compositions, improvisations and intuitive music. Ronald Bruce Smith talks about his “String Quartet No. 2 ‘Nostalgia’” and Peter Sculthorpe along with didjeridu player Stephen Kent discuss the process involved in writing a part for the didjeridu when the two people involved live on different continents. The Vancouver Sun described Ronal Bruce Smith as a composer who is “filling in silence’s blank canvas with the delicacy of an impressionist’s brush.” In his “String Quartet No. 2, ‘Nostalgia’”, a work in four movements, Smith makes reference to another musical impressionist, Maurice Ravel, bor...

Morning Concert: Interview with Philip Corner, 1979 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 134 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From January 4, 1979, Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer Phil Corner. Born April 10, 1933 in New York, Corner studied briefly with Olivier Messiaen in Paris in 1955, and in 1958, at the New School for Social Research, he attended John Cage’s class which also included such distinguished budding artists as Allan Kaprow, George Brecht, Dick Higgins, and others who would make their marks in the lively East Village scene of the 1960s. As a member of the faculty of Livingston College (Rutgers University, New Jersey), Corner continued his provocative, improvisation-oriented music making based on highly original open-ended hand calligraphed performance notations which have become a trademark of his style. In this program he discusses his interest in gamelan and gong music and other aspects of his prodigious output, as well as giving a live performance of par...

Other Minds Festival: OM 14: Concert 3 View Item Type: Video Duration: 128 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) The third and final concert of OM 14 was held on March 7, 2009. After brief introductions and announcements, the concert begins with: Spiral Xi: Mother and Child Each of Chinary Ung's “Spiral” pieces focuses on a single idea that is re-imagined and re-contextualized over the course of the work. This work investigates the notion of musicality as something beyond instrumental practice. Rather, the use of vocal sounds (singing, humming, chanting, and whistling) is equally as important as are the variety of string techniques that form the rich vocabulary of Ung’s string writing. The balance between voice and viola shifts throughout the work, and the combination of these two dimensions produces a world that is more than the sum of its parts. - Adam Greene Listening to Lu Tzu-Hsün Play the Ch’in on a Moonlit Night It turns out that Harry Partch’s Adapte...

The program began with Other Minds Executive and Artistic Director, Charles Amirkhanian, moderating a panel discussion with the evening’s featured composers and performers John Schneider, Michael Harrison, Chinary Ung, and Chico Mello. Different tuning systems were discussed with Schneider and Harrison demonstrating two of them while also making the prediction that future composers will be quite comfortable working with a variety of tunings. Ung then describes his interest in imperfection and Mello describes how he mixes Brazilian pop melodies with more avant-garde compositional devices such as chance operations and various vocal techniques, including singing backwards.

Improv:21: Bob Ostertag - Creative Life View Item Type: Video Duration: 103 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: ROVA As part of the Improv:21 series sponsored by ROVA:Arts, Derk Richardson interviews composer, performer, author, and musical theoretician Bob Ostertag, before a live audience at the San Francisco Museum of Performance & Design Performing Arts Library, on May 27, 2007. Ostertag concentrates his remarks on the evolution of electronic music, what constitutes a performance, and the inherent tension between body and machine. He begins by referencing the essays of electronic music pioneers Edgar Varèse and Karlhienz Stockhausen both of whom predicted the future preeminence of electronic music because it would free the composer from the interpretation of their creations by third parties. Ostertag suggests that a problem not foreseen by those early advocates was the difficulty in devising a truly electronic instrument, one that performers would be able to practice playing for year...
