31. radiOM.org - Three Dances by John Cage [7.188% Popularity: 0.00000]
Three Dances by John Cage Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 18 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA John Cage, as Virgil Thomson has pointed out, is the master of a school of music unique in the western world. His explorations into the realm of percussion sounds, both those produced in the usual manner by the direct use of percussion instruments and those produced in his own special way, by mutations of the modern piano sounds, have been a stimulus in our musical life, as much for their freshness and beauty as for the remarkable way in which they induce one to listen. For it is difficult to sit back in the old way, as though one were in a bathtub of warm water, and allow this music to saturate the ear, or in any way take its content or procedure for granted. It asks cooperation in order that full pleasure may be had from it. And it must be said that it is not too hard to do this...for the sensuous attraction is high and the intellectual rewards are rich. Mr. Cage has devoted himself to the pro...

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 reprod...

34. radiOM.org - Words Program No. 6: John Payne [6.255% Popularity: 0.00000]
Words: Program No. 6: John Payne Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 56 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA One in a series of programs produced by Clark Coolidge that feature the works of late 20th century poets, sound poets, and authors. This recording, broadcast on October 6, 1969, features a number of text-sound compositions by John Payne. The first piece uses short stories by John Cage that are then cut up and rearranged and mixed with other texts. The other pieces are similar in construction and many of the texts sound as if they came from scientific textbooks, electronic music manuals, and musical reviews of classical performances. Although five untitled pieces have been listed it is uncertain as to whether they are properly segmented as many of the pieces seem to segue into each other without much of a pause. However such indeterminacy seems unimportant when enjoying this hour long program of uninterrupted verbal manipulations. Musical Selections: [unidentified word-tape piece, us...
35. radiOM.org - John Dinwiddie Speaks Out [6.246% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Dinwiddie Speaks Out Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA In a rather informal recording made in the studios of KPFA in July of 1972, local Bay Area composer and pianist, John Dinwiddie, ruminates about the then current state of New Music and the apparent tension between the artistic vanguard and their audiences. Dinwiddie allows us to listen in to the debate that rages nightly within his own mind about the evolution of music and the impact that has had on the general concert-going public. According to Dinwiddie, the gap in appreciation and understanding between the avant-garde composer and the concert hall audience is due, in part, to the economic restraints in presenting such concerts, which are far more demanding than that of the visual arts. Concerts require more specialized, and thus more expensive, venues, and the cooperation of often many musicians, whereas pictures or photographs just need to be hung on any wall in order ...

The Corner piece consists largely of detailed performance notes that are followed exactly, much to the amusement of the audience. While Moorman and Tudor might be best known for their collaborations with Nam June Paik and John Cage, respectively, they are both very talented musicians in their own right and their partnership during this program is suitably impressive. Musical Selections: Composition 1960 No. 13 (1960) / La Monte Young -- Projection I (1950) / Morton Feldman -- City Minds and Country Hearts / Ornette Coleman -- Music for Cello and Piano (1954-55) / Earle Brown -- Solo With / Philip Corner -- 34' 46.776'' for a Pianist (1954) / John Cage -- 26' 1.1499'' for a String Player (1953"5) /...
