40. radiOM.org - Interview with Dane Rudhyar, March 1972 [5.068% Popularity: 0.00000]
Interview with Dane Rudhyar, March 1972 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 24 mins Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian and Jim Shere interview composer, philosopher, author, and astrologer, Dane Rudhyar, about his life and ideas. Rudhyar draws some comparisons between his own experiences in the 1920s, when, recognizing that life is cyclical, he decided to leave his land, language, and even his name behind, in order to explore a new world (United States) and a new way of being, and the social upheaval of the 1960s, with its hippies and desires for a New Age. Although somewhat pessimistic about the immediate future and the threat of increased conflict and decay, Rudhyar sees that as just a phase, a turning of the wheel, that will eventually usher in an age of greater integration and understanding. A New Age, the dawn of which is dependent on those self-actualized individuals that will serve as a seed for the coming rebirth of humanity. M...
