He then goes on to give a description of his string piece for 11 performers, “Birth of a Sonority”, as well as his pieces for the Bösendorfer piano. Much of Palestine’s work is focused on the use of overtones. The interview concludes with an excerpt of “Schlingen Blaengen” an organ piece recorded in 1979.

The two discussed the mechanics of composing for the player piano, a process of manually punching literally thousands of holes in long rolls of paper. Nancarrow also relates his association, or lack there of, with other composers, his dissatisfaction with the lack of temporal control in the electronic music of his day, and his experience studying counterpoint with Roger Sessions. Sounding very relaxed and genial, Nancarrow also goes into some detail about how he composes and describes some of his later works. Genre: New ...

Improv:21: Solo Performance - the Composer - Performer’s focal point: An Informance with Ned Rothenberg View Item Type: Video Duration: 102 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: ROVA Derk Richardson interviews New York based, master-saxophonist, Ned Rothenberg, who composes and performs on saxophones, clarinets, flute, and shakuhachi (an end blown Japanese bamboo flute). Rothenberg has been internationally acclaimed for his solo music, which he has presented for the past 25 years in hundreds of concerts throughout North and South America, Europe, and Japan.

35. radiOM.org - Morning Concert John Adams: Harmonium [5.076% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: John Adams: Harmonium Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 67 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA One of the big hits of the 1980-81 San Francisco Symphony season was the world premiere of “Harmonium”, a work by Bay Area composer John Adams. Adams is a Harvard graduate, and at the time of this recording was a member of the faculty at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. His settings of poems by John Donne (“Negative Love”) and Emily Dickinson (“Because I Could Not Stop For Death” & “Wild Nights”) for chorus and full orchestra set a new direction for the course of repetitive (or minimal) music, a style initiated by Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Phil Glass, and LaMonte Young. The impulsive energy of the performances, led by Maestro Edo de Waart, are brilliantly captured in this recording made at Davies Symphony Hall on April 17, 1981 by KQED engineer Fred Krock. Also in this program, Adams talks with Charles Amirkhanian about his music as well as his work with the Sa...
36. radiOM.org - Interview with Phil Winsor [5.073% Popularity: 0.00000]
Interview with Phil Winsor Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 103 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From two interviews recorded in January and May of 1965, and later broadcast on KPFA in August of that same year, Charles Shere talks to Philip Winsor about his 1961 work, “Sound Study I,” written at the San Francisco Tape Music Center, and his “Sound Study II,” produced at the Milan Italian Radio Studio, which he completed about three years later. Together the two compositions try to sort the differences in achievement out of the similarities of means. Winsor mentions how the pieces were written for four channel tape and the first piece had originally been performed over as many as 30 speakers, and how in this radio broadcast much of the spacial qualities are lost. He also relates the challenges he had with the Italian engineer who assisted him in his creation, and who was more used to working with electronic music composers who came into the studio with a score to be realized u...
37. radiOM.org - Flux Art: An Historical Perspective [5.072% Popularity: 0.00000]
Flux Art: An Historical Perspective Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 58 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KRAB An interview with George Maciunas, about the Fluxus art movement, a loose confederation of composers, poets and artists that included such well-known figures as Yoko Ono, and Nam June Paik, Allan Kaprow, Alison Knowles, Dick Higgins. and George Brecht. Initially inspired by John Cage's Experimental Music Composition classes at the New School for Social Research, La Monte Young's influential series of performances in the Chambers Street loft in Manhattan, and the growing interest in conceptual art happenings of the 1960s, the Fluxus movement became famous for its radical avant-garde approach to Art and Music. Like the Dadists and Situationists, Fluxus artists were largely instilled with a do-it-yourself sensibility and an interest in largely unstructured participatory events or happenings. According to George Brecht: “In Fluxus there has never been any attempt to agree on aims or me...

39. radiOM.org - Nicolas Slonimsky Eats Dinner [5.066% Popularity: 0.00000]
Nicolas Slonimsky Eats Dinner Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 170 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) In this three part program, the eminent musicologist, composer and conductor talks with Mrs. George Antheil, Charles Amirkhanian and Carol Law over roast duck at the home of Mrs. Antheil in Los Angeles, on December 28, [1970?]. Brace yourselves for a monologue that puts Spalding Gray to shame. Nicolas Slonimsky (1894-1995), whose career spans the period dating back to the mid-1920s, is totally uninhibited by a microphone hanging off a chandelier in the West Hollywood apartment of Böske Antheil (1902-1978). Amirkhanian and his wife Carol Law sit by helplessly as one course follows another. Recorded on a quarter-track reel-to-reel machine, the sound quality is less than sterling but the voyeuristic vantage point more than makes up for any difficulties. This is the new music equivalent of the Nixon Tapes. In the last part Slonimsky makes a pronounceme...

Morning Concert: John Cage: In Celebration of his 65th Birthday Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 134 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA John Cage was undoubtedly the 20th Century composer who did the most to change the definition of the word “music”. In this program dedicated to Cage's work, which first broadcast on Sept. 5, 1977, the composer's 65th birthday, Charles Amirkhanian presents a selection of Cage’s music in an attempt to dispel the popular notion that Cage’s philosophy of music is more interesting than the actual substance of his compositions. In the second half of the program Cage is heard answering a number of questions from a concert audience, in which he addresses the role of chance operations in his compositions as well as his opinions about the role of beauty in art. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Amores, for prepared piano and percussion (1943) (10:28) -- Experience No. 2, for solo voice [text by e.e. cummings] (1945-48) (4:47) -- 3 Dances, for two prepare...
