32. - 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 ...

An Interview with Virgil Thomson Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 28 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer and music critic Virgil Thomson in a recording most likely made in the early or mid-1970s. Amirkhanian questions the elderly Thomson about his time in Paris studying with Nadia Boulanger, and about his friendships with such composers as George Antheil, Henry Brant, and Henry Cowell. The two also discuss how Virgil first met Gertrude Stein when Antheil asked him to join him for a dinner with the poet, and how she never really took a liking to the brash American pianist, but did strike up a lasting friendship and musical collaboration with Thomson. Also touched upon during this fascinating look back by one of the United States foremost music critics, is Thomson’s less then glowing opinions about the music of John Cage.

38. - John Cage in Conversation with Morton Feldman, Radio Happening 1 of 5 [0.360% 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...

Two Works by Janice Giteck Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 24 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Two pieces by Janice Giteck inspired by her interest in ritual and Native American culture. Ms. Giteck began her career as a Bay Area composer and teacher at the University of California at Berkeley, and later became a member of the faculty at the Cornish Institute of the Arts in Seattle, Washington.

Performed here by tenor John Duykers, with drumming by Andy Narrell and the additional string bass of Karla Lemon, the work is a fascinating mix of avant-garde vocal techniques and ancient rhythms that is inflected by the humor and wisdom of Native Ameri...
40. - Colin McPhee and the Music of Bali [2.239% Popularity: 0.00000]
Colin McPhee and the Music of Bali Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: C Amirkhanian Henry Cowell presents a program on the music of Indonesia, featuring early recordings of gamelan music, as well as many transcriptions of Balinese music by Colin McPhee. The music of Indonesia first came to the attention of the West when in the 1920s Erich M. von Hornbostel and others collected and commercially released a number of gamelan performances, recorded in the villages of Indonesia. These early 78rpm records later inspired the Canadian composer, Colin McPhee, to travel to the island of Bali, for what was to be a trip of a few months but ended up lasting more than seven years. During that time McPhee made numerous transcriptions of ceremonial gamelan music for two pianos and occasionally for flute and piano. Cowell presents some of those early field recordings as well as many of McPhee’s arrangements, performed by McPhee and fellow composer Benjamin Britte...
