31. radiOM.org - Difference Tone A Cristal Concert [3.578% Popularity: 0.00000]
Difference Tone: A Cristal Concert Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 62 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA A program dedicated to the marvelous glass instrument, the Cristal, invented by the Baschet brothers of Paris in 1956. Consisting of glass rods, the Cristal is played by rubbing the rods with wet fingers, the way one would a wine glass, the vibrations of which are then acoustically amplified through a series of metallic resonators Host Charles Amirkhanian is joined in the KPFA studios by David James, Jerry Kuderna, Peter Josheff and Annie Hallett, who play a number of pieces live, as well as listen to some previously recorded works. (from KPFA Folio) Musical Selections: Adagio In C Major, K. 617a (1791) / Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart -- Petite Impression (1982) / Fred Schnaubelt -- Lolie / Michel Deneuve -- Caprice / Fred Schnaubelt -- Concerto for Cristal Four Hands and Orchestra: Processional [1st movement] (1992) / Kile Smith -- [demonstration of the cristal’s range of sound...
32. radiOM.org - Diamánda Galás Live at the La Jolla Museum, (May 21, 1983) [3.577% Popularity: 0.00000]
Diamánda Galás Live at the La Jolla Museum, (May 21, 1983) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 17 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded live on May 21, 1983 at the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art, Diamánda Galás performs her “Wild Women with Steak-Knives,” an avant-garde performance art work for vocals and live signal processing. Part of her 1981 album “The Litanies of Satan,” the piece features the operatic range and diabolic inflections of vintage Galás. With sounds that vary from hisses, to screeches, moans, hollers, spits, and stutters, all accompanied by minimal electronic manipulations and elaboration, this harrowing work is part torture and part catharsis. The work’s subtitle, “The Homicidal Love Song for Solo Scream” sets the stage for what may be to some an evocative commentary on domestic violence and for others simply unbearable noise, but regardless of one’s personal reaction, the memory of this work will always be etched deeply within the mind of any one who listens.

33. radiOM.org - Morning Concert John Duffy & Heritage: A Symphonic Suite with Narration [3.576% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: John Duffy & Heritage: A Symphonic Suite with Narration Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 107 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer John Duffy, whose television series soundtrack “Heritage: Civilization & The Jews,” has been reworked into a suite for orchestra with narrator. Duffy, the founder of the Meet the Composer organization, which assists groups in bringing composers to meet their audiences, has had a revolutionary impact on the American music scene of the late 20th century. Now Charles Amirkhanian plays turnabout and brings you John Duffy himself, interviewed shortly after his 60th birthday in his Manhattan studio on October 9, 1988. In this wide ranging interview Duffy discusses the role of religion in his life, his early studies with Henry Cowell and Luigi Dallapiccola, and the philosophy behind the Meet the Composer series. (from KPFA Folio) Musical Selections: Heritage: Symphonic Suite with Narration: Part 1, In the Beginn...
34. radiOM.org - Homage to Darius Milhaud Concert, April 26, 1971 [3.575% Popularity: 0.00000]
Homage to Darius Milhaud Concert, April 26, 1971 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 92 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA A concert of Darius Milhaud’s music, given on April 26, 1971, on the occasion of the composer’s retirement from the Mills College faculty after 31 years. Jean-Louis LeRoux conducts the Mills Performing Group with soloists Madeleine Milhaud, Naomi Sparrow and Betty Woo. The first selection heard, “La muse ménagère”, was played as people were still entering the music hall and therefore there is a bit of crowd noise, and the actual performer is uncertain. However this is but a small distraction from what is otherwise a wonderful tribute to one of the great 20th century composers. Part 1 of 4: Musical Selections: La Muse Ménagère, Op. 245 (”The Household Muse”) (1945) (19:00) -- Musique pour Graz, Op. 429 (1968"69) (15:30) Performers: Mills Performing Group (Graz) Jean-Louis LeRoux, conductor (Graz) Naomi Sparrow, piano (Muse) or Betty Woo, piano (Muse) Genres: 20th Century Cl...
35. radiOM.org - Do It by Robert Erickson [3.574% Popularity: 0.00000]
Do It by Robert Erickson Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 19 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Alan Rich A recording of “Do It,” a 1968 composition by Robert Erickson in which words and phrases are used in a fashion that is reminiscent of the complex polyrhythms of African drumming, and the chaos of political campaign rhetoric. According to the composer in the program notes of a 1987 performance of the piece: “’Do It’ grew out of the sounds of the 1968 presidential campaign, the speeches of General MacArthur, television, radio and magazine advertising of that period, and a poem by Donald Peterson which I had known since 1966. I wanted to transform these rhetorics into musical experience, and everything about the compositional strategy reflects this aim. Not all of the words are meant to be understood; many aspects of language have been deliberately distorted or re-formed in order to bare the emotion the overt semantic content.” Robert Erickson, was a noted author and educator, whose students in...
36. radiOM.org - Morning Concert A Visit With Frederic Rzewski [3.573% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: A Visit With Frederic Rzewski Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 55 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian and Russ Jennings are joined in the KPFA studio by Frederic Rzewski, an American composer and performer, who has spent much of his adult life living in Rome and Brussels. Rzewski was a founding member of the radical, electronic, music group, Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV), and the composer of a famous set of piano variations based on Sergio Ortega protest song “El Pueblo Undio Jamas Sera Vencido”. He is known for both his remarkable virtuosity as a performer, improviser and composer, as well as his committed involvement in leftist politics. How he resolves these in his work is a challenge which he has pursued with thoughtfulness and inventiveness of an uncommon sort. In this program he introduces a number of his pieces and talks about how his political views have influenced his work. (from KPFA Folio) Musical Selections: The People United Wil...
37. radiOM.org - La Journée de l’Existence by Ivan Wyschnegradsky [3.570% Popularity: 0.00000]
La Journée de l’Existence by Ivan Wyschnegradsky Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 53 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Ivan Wyschnegradsky was a Russian-born composer who in the early 1920’s designed the first quarter-tone piano. For the next 30 years Wyschnegradsky developed an intricate system for composing microtonal music, producing numerous musical works and written articles. However it was not until the 1970s that his music finally found the audience that it deserved. Part of his newly acquired cult status among young composers was due to a day long series of concerts produced by Radio France on January 21, 1978. It was during one of those concerts, that Wyschnegradsky’s first major work, composed in 1916-17, “La Journée de l’Existence,” finally got its world premiere. For a composer who had been long ignored by his contemporaries, to hear his early masterpiece finally performed 60 years after it was first composed was by all accounts a very moving and uplifting experience. Although...
38. radiOM.org - Morning Concert John Cage: In Celebration of his 65th Birthday [3.569% Popularity: 0.00000]
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...

Prior to the start of the concert Cobb and Moran describe the fortuitous events that led to their collaboration, as well as peppering the concert with various remarks about individual pieces.

40. radiOM.org - Hoy (In His Memory): A Radio Drama [3.565% Popularity: 0.00000]
Hoy (In His Memory): A Radio Drama Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 55 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: C Amirkhanian According to the creators: “’Hoy (In His Memory)’ is a narrative symphony for integrated vocal text and computer synthesis. It is a dramatic musical composition designed specifically for radio broadcast. The libretto is adapted from a section of Dale Worsley’s novel ‘Ringer Pike.’ The title character, Hoy, lives in the hills of West Virginia. He is a self-employed auto mechanic who lives by bartering repairs for his daily needs. The entire narrative symphony takes place thorough Hoy’s thoughts, as he recalls the past year of his life, which was filled with emotional extremes of love, loss, joy, and sorrow. Hoy is the sort of person who takes a long time to verbalize his thoughts. His presence is dominated by long silences between terse utterances. Much of the music of the work represents the preverbal formation of Hoy’s thoughts. Typically, for example, a passage of music compo...
