Ode To Gravity: The Eventide Harmonizer and Henry Kaiser Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 112 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded on September 14, 1981, Charles Amirkhanian gets a demonstration of the Eventide Clockworks Harmonizer from Laurie Anderson. The Harmonizer is the piece of equipment that Anderson has used, with such great effect, to lower the pitch of her voice in real time, during her concerts. Amirkhanian then interviews Richard Factor, the co-inventor of this ingenious device, in his busy New York City office. Amirkhanian also presents brief interviews with Margaret Jory, Director of the American Music Center, the United States’ official information center and repository for contemporary classical music; and with Phill Niblock, composer and director of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation, and who was preparing to broadcast his, “Concerts for Composers,” a collection of live performances recorded in Niblock’s New York City loft.

There is also an engaging conversation regarding the creation of a gamelan from electrical conduits and pieces of aluminum which used coffee cans as resonators. The description of the adjustments that are necessary to achieve proper intonation is quite humorous and revelatory. Musical Selections: Yogya Style Gamelan (4:00) -- [unidenti...

35. radiOM.org - A Concert of Live Electronic Music at U. C. San Diego (April 18, 1968) [3.201% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Concert of Live Electronic Music at U. C. San Diego (April 18, 1968) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 84 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA This is a recording of a concert of live electronic music presented at the University of California in San Diego on April 18, 1968, featuring works by Martin Bartlett, Toshi Ichiyanagi, and Anthony Gnazzo. The original concert program notes, written by Pauline Oliveros, states: For the past twenty years electronic music has been associated with magnetic tape and a stage devoid of performers. The equipment found in most classical electronic music studios was never intended for music-making but was adapted by composers and technicians interested in electronic sounds and in the electronic manipulation of sound. Now that technological media are no longer considered alien, and now that electronic pop has created a whole new era of live music, J. Petrillo’s fear in the 1940’s that canned music would replace the human performer seems unfounded. Pop musicians...
36. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 12: Panel Discussion & Concert 2 [2.750% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 12: Panel Discussion & Concert 2 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 145 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian moderates a panel discussion with the three composers featured in the second concert of the 12th Other Minds Festival. Maja Ratkje, who was too ill to take part in the panel discussion the day before, speaks about her interest in Japanese gagaku music as well as giving a preview of her work with the Norwegian group POING, which features the composer’s extended vocal techniques combined with electronics, saxophones, accordion, and string bass. Joëlle Leandre is French composer and string bass player, who discusses how her interest in sound poetry has influenced her interest in improvisational performance. Per Nørgård, the premiere Danish composer of his time, discusses his piece “Wie ein Kind” , and how it was inspired by Swiss schizophrenic, Adolf Wölfli and German poet Rainer ...
37. radiOM.org - Early Improvisations with Pauline Oliveros, Loren Rush, Terry Riley, and Others [2.678% Popularity: 0.00000]
Early Improvisations with Pauline Oliveros, Loren Rush, Terry Riley, and Others Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 59 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: CCM Archive A series of improvisations, recorded around 1957, and featuring Pauline Oliveros, Loren Rush, Terry Riley, Laurel Johnson, Robert Erickson, and Bill Butler. The instrumentation for these five pieces is varied and unspecified, but seems to include piano, percussion, ocarina, trombone, and a plucked string instrument that may be a koto. The first improvisation is used as accompaniment for a lengthy recitation. These early experiments with aleatoric and improvisatory music serves as a valuable historical record chronicling the emergence of a new musical aesthetic that was to dominate contemporary classical music for much of the latter half of the 20th century, and hints at the type of minimal and chance compositions for which many of the performers would later become famous. As such these performances should be of great interest, and prov...
38. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 17: Panel Discussion & Concert 2 [2.639% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 17: Panel Discussion & Concert 2 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 136 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds The second concert of the 17th Other Minds Festival of New Music (OM 17) began with a panel discussion with some of the composers and performers featured in the night’s concert, held on March 2, 2012. Joining moderator Charles Amirkhanian was Harold Budd, Gloria Coates, Ikue Mori, and Tyshawn Sorey. Harold Budd talks about his early career, starting with a military band about 50 years ago and then his growing interest in jazz. In fact he states that his entire artistic goal has been to recapture the same feelings he had when first hearing Stan Getz playing. He also relates how his collaboration with Brian Eno led to a growing interest in improvising as well as considerable financial success. Gloria Coates discusses her decision to move to from her home in Wisconsin to Munich, Germany in 1969 and her growing interest in resonance and mi...
39. radiOM.org - Improv:21 Wayne Horvitz: Approaching Training and Musical Heritage in Improvisation and Composition [2.397% 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...

Musical Selections: [improvisation based on Steve Adam’s graphic score “No. 1”] -- [improvisation based on graphic score “The Fly”] -- [improvisation based on Bruce Ackley’s graphic score “Fault Line”] -- The Mirror World [exce...
