31. radiOM.org - A Concert of Works by Robert Moran and Morton Feldman (August 31, 1968) [4.631% 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 ...
32. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Sound Poems of Henri Chopin, Jim Rosenberg, Ira Steingroot [0.194% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Sound Poems of Henri Chopin, Jim Rosenberg, Ira Steingroot Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 68 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian introduces a program of text-sound compositions or sound poetry. Works by three different artists are highlighted during this program. Perhaps the best known of the three is Henri Chopin, who was an active member of the French avant-garde from at least 1950 until his death in 2008. Chopin was a pioneer in the field of musique concrète and sound poetry being one of the first to recognize the potential for such creations when the first tape recorders became available to consumers. Chopin also published a magazine called OU from his home in Ingatestone, England. Jim Rosenberg is an American poet, mathematician and computer programer who has been creating “non-linear poetic forms” since 1966 when he was only 19 years old. Also featured in this program are the poems of Ira Steingroot. Musical Selections: Dawn Quartet, Backward...
33. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 1: Panel on Legacy of John Cage (Nov. 6, 1993) [5.038% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 1: Panel on Legacy of John Cage (Nov. 6, 1993) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 65 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) As part of the first Other Minds Festival (OM1), Charles Amirkhanian moderates a panel discussion on the Legacy of John Cage, held in San Francisco on November 6, 1993, just over a year after the legendary avant-garde composer’s death. The conversation begins with a reading of an excerpt of a letter written by Cage’s mother is which she compares his remarkable ethic with that of his own father,saying they were both like a tractor cutting through a field and bent on advising the world how to live well. Julie Lazar, curator at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art then describes Cage’s last exhibition which featured one gallery that would change every day; a Zen gallery that was designed to provide a space where people would feel comfortable and which was in fact largely a reproduc...
34. radiOM.org - Improv:21 Wayne Horvitz: Approaching Training and Musical Heritage in Improvisation and Composition [0.676% Popularity: 0.00000]
Improv:21: Wayne Horvitz: Approaching Training and Musical Heritage in Improvisation and Composition View Item Type: Video Duration: 122 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: ROVA Derk Richardson interviews composer and keyboardist Wayne Horvitz, recorded at the Red Poppy Art House in San Francisco on April 15, 2009, as part of the ROVA:Arts Improv 21 series of informances. Horvitz, who is as well known for his classical styled compositions as for his experimental jazz and avant-garde rock performances, discusses the social context of a variety of performance practices. He makes an eloquent argument for breaking down, or at least ignoring, the barriers between jazz and classical music; claiming that neither term adequately captures the nuances of current composing and performance techniques. While Horvitz admits that many of the great improvisers of the 1960s and 70s were essentially self taught musicians, and were perhaps unable to sight read a score, he feels that today’s improvisers often hav...
35. radiOM.org - New Sounds San Jose The Fourth Annual Festival: Concert Two [0.266% Popularity: 0.00000]
New Sounds San Jose: The Fourth Annual Festival: Concert Two Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 74 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded on May 8, 1982, the second concert of the 4th annual New Sounds San Jose Festival featured Joan La Barbara presenting selections of music for voice, tape and electronics, most of which were her own compositions. Subtitled “Voice is the Original Instrument” the first half of this concert featured works where all the sound were created by the natural voice, amplified to bring out quiet sounds and particular qualities that would not be clearly audible without the use of amplification. While some of the pieces included multi-tracking, no electronic or tape manipulation was used and all one hears is either live or pre-recorded amplified voice. The second half of the concert included pieces by John Cage and Morton Subotnick, who is also La Barbara’s husband. While some of these pieces include additional instrumentation such as ghost electronics the focus rem...
36. 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 ...

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...
