31. radiOM.org - Concerts by Composers No. 07: Works by Franz Kamin, George Lewis, & Jackson MacLow [2.283% Popularity: 0.00000]
Concerts by Composers: No. 07: Works by Franz Kamin, George Lewis, & Jackson MacLow Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 59 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA In the late 1970s and early 1980s the Experimental Intermedia Foundation held a series of exciting concerts of avant-garde and electro-acoustic music at Phill Niblock’s loft in the SoHo district of New York City. These concerts were then packaged into a series of hour-long radio programs entitled “Concerts by Composers” and distributed to interested radio stations around the United States. This seventh program in the series features music by Jackson Mac Low, Franz Kamin, & George Lewis. The program begins with two works by poet and composer Jackson Mac Low. Each piece uses as its text a selection of words that were determined by chance operations. Following this is “Rugugmool” by Franz Kamin (sp?), which is scored for a narrator, three sopranos and two bass singers, keyboards, flute and piccolo, clarinet, and bassoon. The program conclude...
32. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 5, Concert 1: 06 “Favorite Things” arranged by Errollyn Wallen [0.318% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 5, Concert 1: 06 “Favorite Things” arranged by Errollyn Wallen Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 5 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds The music of composer Errollyn Wallen spans numerous styles from avant-garde classical to jazz song writing. She has composed extensively for chamber media, including piano solo and duet, string quartet and various mixed ensembles, often with voice. In between her work on classical composition, Wallen began in 1988 writing pop/jazz songs for a change of pace. The results are electrifying, as she moves freely among influences ranging from Laurie Anderson to Gospel, Bill Evans, Blues, Schubert, and Ives. "More light, more light..." is the inscription placed at the head of “Favorite Things” as it encapsulates the spirit of the intention here, to observe space and stillness. Although “Favorite Things” is full of movement and whimsy at certain points, it is essentially a reflective piece written to celebrate the wonderful playing of ...
33. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Infrared Roses: Music by the Grateful Dead [0.334% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Infrared Roses: Music by the Grateful Dead Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 117 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian introduces the Grateful Dead at their most abstract and avant-garde. “Infrared Roses,” produced by Bob Bralove, is a compilation of performances taken from the “drumz/space” improvisational portion that came in the middle of the second set of most Grateful Dead shows during the 1980s and 1990s. The album explores the nether tones and electronic trampolines of the subconscious in a brilliantly edited tour-de-force. Grateful Dead lyricist, Robert Hunter, created the names for these stunning examples of free improvisation. Despite a certain amount of time spent on fund-raising and an entertaining discussion on fountain pens, devoted Deadheads, and others, will be rewarded for their attentiveness with Bralove’s informative reminisces about what really went on during a Grateful Dead concert (and Stevie Wonder rehearsals) (from KPFA ...
34. radiOM.org - The Music of Alvin Curran and MEV [5.878% 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...
35. radiOM.org - A Concert of Works by Robert Moran and Morton Feldman (August 31, 1968) [3.766% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Concert of Works by Robert Moran and Morton Feldman (August 31, 1968) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 21 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded at the De Young Museum in San Francisco on August 31, 1968, this program features two works by Robert Moran and Morton Feldman. The first piece heard is the world premiere of “Scream Kiss No. 1,”a theatrical work for harpsichord and pre-recorded tape by Robert Moran, and performed here by Margaret Fabrizio on the harpsichord. This work was used in a film realization by Paul Crowley, which also featured Ms. Fabrizio on screen, however it is uncertain whether the film was shown during this performance. This piece is followed by “Four Instruments” by Morton Feldman, a very quiet and meditative work of aleatoric music. The San Francisco Bay Area was a center of avant-garde contemporary classical music in the latter half of the 20th century and this recording captures some of that adventurous musical programing, and should be of interest to any ...
36. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 20: Panel Discussion & Concert 1 [4.857% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 20: Panel Discussion & Concert 1 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 141 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...

The two then welcome Ingram Marshall and John Adams to the KPFA microphone to discuss an important publication in the field of new music, “Sound Structure in Music” by former KPFA musical director, Robert Erickson. The book focuses on the role that timbre has had in the works of contemporary composers starting with Schoe...

39. radiOM.org - Jim Nollman’s Cigarette Piece (1973) [5.096% 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 ...
