41. - Two Works by Janice Giteck [0.280% Popularity: 0.00000]
Two Works by Janice Giteck Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 24 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Two pieces by Janice Giteck inspired by her interest in ritual and Native American culture. Ms. Giteck began her career as a Bay Area composer and teacher at the University of California at Berkeley, and later became a member of the faculty at the Cornish Institute of the Arts in Seattle, Washington. The first work heard here, “Thunder like a White Bear Dancing” is a performance ritual based on the Ojibwa Mide Picture Songs and their rituals of initiation for their medicine men. “Callin' Home Coyote” is another theatrical work that draws upon a text by Lewis MacAdams and stories of the Native American trickster god, Coyote, for its inspiration. Performed here by tenor John Duykers, with drumming by Andy Narrell and the additional string bass of Karla Lemon, the work is a fascinating mix of avant-garde vocal techniques and ancient rhythms that is inflected by the humor and wisdom of Native Ameri...

43. - Colin McPhee and the Music of Bali [2.239% Popularity: 0.00000]
Colin McPhee and the Music of Bali Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: C Amirkhanian Henry Cowell presents a program on the music of Indonesia, featuring early recordings of gamelan music, as well as many transcriptions of Balinese music by Colin McPhee. The music of Indonesia first came to the attention of the West when in the 1920s Erich M. von Hornbostel and others collected and commercially released a number of gamelan performances, recorded in the villages of Indonesia. These early 78rpm records later inspired the Canadian composer, Colin McPhee, to travel to the island of Bali, for what was to be a trip of a few months but ended up lasting more than seven years. During that time McPhee made numerous transcriptions of ceremonial gamelan music for two pianos and occasionally for flute and piano. Cowell presents some of those early field recordings as well as many of McPhee’s arrangements, performed by McPhee and fellow composer Benjamin Britte...

45. - New music, composers, poetry, video and audio streaming [0.619% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radical Aesthetics and Sound Sensitivity Information Charles Amirkhanian, KPFA's Sound Sensitivity Information Director, has been invited to join the staff of radio station VPRO in Holland from September to January. Although VPRO is a government supported station, it is enthusiastic about the Pacifica stations and we have both felt the benefit of these exchanges. Most recently, KPFA was host to Philippe Scheltema who did the midday program Here's Philippe this past winter. It helps keep our flow of information and input of ideas fresh and flexible, covering broad areas of radio, politics, and of course radical aesthetics… In Europe, radio is still alive and kicking—a force for intelligent, in-depth analysis and debate, music and literature broadcasts of a sophisticated nature, and productions in all areas of programming which are carefully thought out and skillfully accomplished by audio technicians who are experts in making a point without the aid of a video screen. But in the United States, virtually every ...
46. - A Poetry Reading by Clark Coolidge [0.742% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Poetry Reading by Clark Coolidge Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 119 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA Clark Coolidge reads a number of his poems, many of which were unpublished at the time of this recording. Coolidge, was perhaps more than any other person, responsible for inspiring the entire experimental field of Language Poetry, which became popular among avant-garde, mostly American poets, during the 1960s and 70s. This type of poetry was partially inspired by the work of Gertrude Stein, John Cage, and others who sometimes used mathematical sequences and other aleatoric or logical constructs to organize their poetry or music. The work of the Language Poets often forced the audience to participate in the extraction or creation of meaning from the text, separate from the authors intent. This reading occurred in April or May of an undetermined year (but probably in the 1970s) at the home of Michael Palmer, 17 Beaver Street in San Francisco. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Stone...

In 2017 we celebrate his 100th birth anniversary with two very special concerts at the Mission Dolores Basilica in San Francisco. The first concert, Pacific Rim Centennials, was held on February 18th and paid tribute not just to Lou Harrison but to a fellow centenarian, Korean composer Isang Yun. Yun and Harrison knew and respected each other very much. Their work was previously celebrated together in 1987 on the occasion of their 70th birthdays thanks to conductor Dennis Russell Davies, then Music Director of the Cabrillo Festival. Davies worked with Other Minds this year to present the music of these two mavericks, both as performer a...

50. - Zappa as DJ, 1968 [5.086% Popularity: 0.00000]
Zappa as DJ, 1968 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 97 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded in 1968, Tom Donahue interviews Frank Zappa about his life and work, and allows the irreverent rock star to present some of his favorite music. The ensuing free form program ranges from surf music, doo-wop, jazz, the blues, to the works of Pierre Boulez. The song selection is very informative for any fan of Zappa’s music, as one can easily trace the influence of all these styles on his own creative output, be it the cheesy harmonies of 1950s pop songs or the intricate percussive patterns of Boulez’s avant-garde classical compositions. The role that such songs had on Zappa’s own musical evolution is made all the more clear at the end of this hilarious program when a selection of satirical songs from the Mothers of Invention are also heard. Part 1 of 4: Musical Selections: Agency Man / Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention -- The Handsome Cabin Boy / [traditional] ...
