41. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 14: Panel Discussion 3 [0.975% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 14: Panel Discussion 3 View Item Type: Video Duration: 42 mins Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) The third and final concert of OM 14 was held on March 7, 2009. The program began with Other Minds Executive and Artistic Director, Charles Amirkhanian, moderating a panel discussion with the evening’s featured composers and performers John Schneider, Michael Harrison, Chinary Ung, and Chico Mello. Different tuning systems were discussed with Schneider and Harrison demonstrating two of them while also making the prediction that future composers will be quite comfortable working with a variety of tunings. Ung then describes his interest in imperfection and Mello describes how he mixes Brazilian pop melodies with more avant-garde compositional devices such as chance operations and various vocal techniques, including singing backwards.

42. radiOM.org - An Interview with Virgil Thomson [5.088% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Interview with Virgil Thomson Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 28 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer and music critic Virgil Thomson in a recording most likely made in the early or mid-1970s. Amirkhanian questions the elderly Thomson about his time in Paris studying with Nadia Boulanger, and about his friendships with such composers as George Antheil, Henry Brant, and Henry Cowell. The two also discuss how Virgil first met Gertrude Stein when Antheil asked him to join him for a dinner with the poet, and how she never really took a liking to the brash American pianist, but did strike up a lasting friendship and musical collaboration with Thomson. Also touched upon during this fascinating look back by one of the United States foremost music critics, is Thomson’s less then glowing opinions about the music of John Cage. Genres: 20th Century Classical ; Avant-Garde Subject: Thomson, Virgil, 1896-1989 ; Boulange...

Other Minds Festival: OM 17: Panel Discussion & Concert 1 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 90 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) 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 first night’s concert, held on March 1, 2012. Joining moderator Charles Amirkhanian on stage were composers Øyvind Torvund and Simon Steen-Andersen, along with Anders Førisdal, guitarist with the night’s featured ensemble, asamisimasa. The Danish composer Steen-Andersen tells the audience about his childhood fascination with all types of sounds before pursuing a classical musical education, and his subsequent compositional career that mixes both traditional musical structures and techniques with unusual instrumentation, multimedia, and even popular music studio devices. Norwegian composer Øyvind Torvund discusses his utilization of a wide variety of sound-making...
44. radiOM.org - 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. radiOM.org - Works by Six Dutch Composers [0.326% Popularity: 0.00000]
Works by Six Dutch Composers Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 127 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Han Reiziger of VPRO (Dutch Radio) hosted a number of KPFA broadcasts in 1974 as part of an exchange program between the two stations.

Included in the program is incidental music by Alphons Diepenbrock, two re-workings of the Dutch national anthem by Anthon van der Horst and Louis Andriessen, a symphony by Cornelis Dopper, a seldom heard avant-garde piece by Bernard van Beurden, and an aleatoric work for two wind quintets by Misha Mengelberg. One of these pieces is introduced by Reiziger as being “Choros II” by Anthon van der Horst, however this work is now best known as “Choros VI”.

46. radiOM.org - 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 an exchange program with the Pacifica Radio network that saw KPFA’s Charles Amirkhanian spend several months in Holland, Reiziger came to Berkeley California for a four month stint in 1974-75, where he produced numerous programs on Dutch musical life.

48. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 8: Djerassi Resident Artists Program Panel Discussions (March 2002) [4.982% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 8: Djerassi Resident Artists Program Panel Discussions (March 2002) View Item Type: Video Duration: 5hr 12min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Prior to each annual Other Minds Festival the featured composers have traditionally gathered together for a number of days at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in Woodside CA., to meet each other and offer presentations about their works. In this program, recorded from March 3-5, 2002, you get the rare and invaluable opportunity of sitting in on these far ranging and interactive discussions, which provide insight into each composer’s early experiences and style of composing.

Lou Harrison then talks about his style of composing and his use ...
49. radiOM.org - John Dinwiddie Speaks Out [5.079% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Dinwiddie Speaks Out Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA In a rather informal recording made in the studios of KPFA in July of 1972, local Bay Area composer and pianist, John Dinwiddie, ruminates about the then current state of New Music and the apparent tension between the artistic vanguard and their audiences. Dinwiddie allows us to listen in to the debate that rages nightly within his own mind about the evolution of music and the impact that has had on the general concert-going public. According to Dinwiddie, the gap in appreciation and understanding between the avant-garde composer and the concert hall audience is due, in part, to the economic restraints in presenting such concerts, which are far more demanding than that of the visual arts. Concerts require more specialized, and thus more expensive, venues, and the cooperation of often many musicians, whereas pictures or photographs just need to be hung on any wall in order fo...
50. radiOM.org - 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] ...
