21. radiOM.org - George Antheil Hertz Hall Concert [2.916% Popularity: 0.00000]
George Antheil Hertz Hall Concert Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 61 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) On November 20, 1970, KPFA and Charles Amirkhanian presented a concert featuring many of the early works of George Antheil to a sold-out Hertz Hall on the U. C. Berkeley campus. This historic concert launched a revival of interest in Antheil's early music, most of which had not been performed since the mid-1920s. The program features “Airplane Sonata”, “Sonata No. 2 for violin and piano with drums”, “La Femme 100 Têtes”, “Five Songs (on the Text of Adelaide Crapsey)”, and “Symphony for Five Instruments”. During the actual concert images of the etching by Max Ernst that were the inspiration for the 45 preludes that comprise “La Femme 100 Têtes” were projected. The concert also included a showing of the experimental film “Ballet Mécanique” by Dudley Murphy and Fernand Léger, with cinematography by Man Ray for which Antheil had composed the score, howe...
22. radiOM.org - The Music of Alvin Curran and MEV [2.916% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Music of Alvin Curran and MEV Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 132 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) A selection of recordings and live performances by Alvin Curran and the electronic improvisational group Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV). MEV was originally founded in Rome in 1966 by Curran, Richard Teitelbaum, Frederic Rzewski, Allan Bryant and others. It has since gone through several personnel changes and these later formations are sometimes referred to as MEV2. This program demonstrates the classic avant-garde, electro-acoustic music style that defined the MEV sound during the 1960s and early 70s. Using hand-built electronics and amplifying various household objects MEV concerts during this period were highly improvisational and occasionally quite loud. Anybody interested in the early electronic music of composers such as John Cage, David Tudor, and others should find these live concert recordings a fascinating window into those first days of ex...
23. radiOM.org - Evening Concert Nicolas Slonimsky [2.914% Popularity: 0.00000]
Evening Concert: Nicolas Slonimsky Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 115 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian provides a brief background sketch of the life and music of Nikolai Miaskovsky (1881-1950), who composed during both Tsarist and Stalinist Russia. A recording of the composer's “Cello Sonata No. 2 in A minor”, Op. 81 is heard. This is followed by what may be some of the most hilarious, but informative, moments in musicology ever broadcast. After Amirkhanian reads the section in the recently published “Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Musicians” (6th Edition) written by Nicolas Slonimsky on himself (a very funny exercise in hyper-humility), the microphone is turned over to Slonimsky at his home in Los Angeles, and what follows provides an indication of the extent of his wit and genius. Amirkhanian then reads selected passages from the Dictionary and the program concludes with music, first a selection from Sergei ...

New Music Seance: 2005: Concert No. 3, Toward the Flame Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 100 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) Summoning the specters of musical forbears, and channeling the spirits of their successors, the 2005 New Music Seance Concerts featured five hours of hypnotic solo piano music performed by Sarah Cahill or on the eerily disembodied Yamaha Disklavier, with additional spirit raising interludes by the Kate Stenberg and Eva-Maria Zimmerman violin-piano duo. Held in the intimate, candle lit setting of the historic Arts & Crafts styled Swedenborgian Church in San Francisco, this third concert features works by Scriabin, Cage, Cowell, John Adams, Gary Noland, Lou Harrison, and others Part 1 of 10: Musical Selections: Vers la Flamme (1914) (8:14) / Alexander Scriabin Performers: Sarah Cahill, piano Genre: 20th Century Classical Subject: 20th century classical ; Piano music People: Scriabin, Aleksandr Nikolayevich, 1872-1915 ; Ca...
25. radiOM.org - The Life and Music of Elie Siegmeister [2.908% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Life and Music of Elie Siegmeister Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 135 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA In a recording made on March 24, 1972 and first broadcast on July 31st of that year, Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer Elie Siegmeister and his wife Hannah, while also playing a wide assortment of Siegmeister’s music. Known for his interest in American music and the plight of the working class, Siegmeister has written art songs, operas, musicals, and film scores, as well as a wide variety of orchestral and chamber works. In this delightful interview Siegmeister disputes Amirkhanian’s attempt to divide his career into an early Americana phase and a later period dedicated to more experimental and abstract music, saying that while certain works may emphasize one aspect more than the other both themes are generally present in all his music. An active composer since at least the 1930s Siegmeister knew many of the great American composers of his time and provides ente...

During the preparation of the performance, we hear Charles Shere interview composer Robert Moran, in which he discusses the partially aleatoric score which calls on the performers to musically interpret an experimental film by Rick Paup and Jack Agins. The performance was conducted by Robert Hughes, who recollects: "...We took the work on tour, including at the National Music Educators' Convention in Seattle and, following the performance, the work was loudly booed while the ‘educators’ swooped to the stage to gobble up as many programs as they could to take home with them....

Åke Parmerud then reflects on the nature of science and the concept that all of creation can be considered as a single organic machine, and how he has used it as the philosophical basis for his tape piece “La Vie Mécanique”. Elena Kats-Chernin describes her works for piano, which despite their deceptively simple structure, are in fact incredibly difficult to play. And a somewhat taciturn Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith offers a brief introduction to his compositional technique, while also declaring his personal predilection to not talk about h...
