41. radiOM.org - Source Program No. 3: The first lecture in John Cage’s class on “Music in Dialogue” [5.879% Popularity: 0.00000]
Source: Program No. 3: The first lecture in John Cage’s class on “Music in Dialogue” Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 109 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) This program contains the lecture given by John Cage on October 7, 1969, at the University of California Davis during the first meeting of his class on “Music in Dialogue”. In typical Cagian style the rather informal presentation covers such subjects as Buckminster Fuller, Zen Buddhism, philosophy, and the role of art and technology in modern society. The obvious delight of the students at having the opportunity to be taught by such a revolutionary composer is quite evident in their laughter and questions. Genres: New Music ; Avant-Garde Subject: Fuller, R. Buckminster (Richard Buckminster), 1895-1983 ; Music -- History and criticism ; Philosophy ; Zen Buddhism ; Art and society People: Austin, Larry ; Cage, John Recording Date: 10/7/1969 First Broadcast Date: 11/4/1969 Listen...
42. radiOM.org - The Music of Alvin Curran and MEV [5.878% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Music of Alvin Curran and MEV Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 132 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) A selection of recordings and live performances by Alvin Curran and the electronic improvisational group Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV). MEV was originally founded in Rome in 1966 by Curran, Richard Teitelbaum, Frederic Rzewski, Allan Bryant and others. It has since gone through several personnel changes and these later formations are sometimes referred to as MEV2. This program demonstrates the classic avant-garde, electro-acoustic music style that defined the MEV sound during the 1960s and early 70s. Using hand-built electronics and amplifying various household objects MEV concerts during this period were highly improvisational and occasionally quite loud. Anybody interested in the early electronic music of composers such as John Cage, David Tudor, and others should find these live concert recordings a fascinating window into those first days of ex...

Born in Australia and trained in Europe, Grainger moved to the United States in 1914 where he became well known for his performances on the piano. Always an innovator Grainger began to experiment with avant-garde music, and with physicist Burnett Cross, he invented the Free Music Machine, a early precursor to the electronic synthesizer.

A Review of a Concert of Experimental Music from England Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 18 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian reviews a concert by the San Francisco Conservatory New Music Ensemble of avant-garde or experimental music, by mostly young English composers, which was held on March 21, 1974 and was to be repeated the next day. Excerpts of works heard include an arrangement of an early 20th century waltz, a song based on a Chinese melody by Cornelius Cardew, and a rondo by Christopher Hobbs. Also heard are segments of two pieces by Gavin Bryars, one inspired by the story of the Titanic, and another by a film of a London tramp singing an old hymn. Both of Bryars’ pieces, which he introduced himself, were accompanied by visual projections of pictures or films and have a beautiful yet haunting quality to them. Much of this work is based on re-workings of Victorian waltz melodies and sentimental salon pieces. Most of the pieces are consonant, some e...

Morning Concert: The Music of Larry Austin Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 106 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA In a program from 1988, Charles Amirkhanian talks with one of America’s most fascinating composers specializing in electro-acoustic and computer music, Larry Austin (b. 1930).

Also heard is th...

48. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity The Art and Music of Gerd De Vries [5.873% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: The Art and Music of Gerd De Vries Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 67 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian presents a program on German composer and musicologist, Gerd de Vries, whose efforts to modernize the establishment’s music dictionary, Riemann’s “Musick Lexicon,” have been much appreciated by avant-garde composers. Due to his efforts, entries for such important composers as John Cage have gone from being just a couple of sentences long, to now filling up more than a page, in this well known musical reference work. In addition to discussing his editorial work de Vries also talks about his austere compositions for organ, which often contain only the minimum number of elements possible in a sound event. Included are organ performances by de Vries as well as a talk with the composer recorded during a walk downtown in Amsterdam on Jan. 19, 1974. This program also contains a discussion of the work of Peter Roehr, a conceptual artist whose wo...
49. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Alexander Kan: Mr. New Music USSR [5.872% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Alexander Kan: Mr. New Music USSR Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 123 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA When the ROVA Saxophone Quartet toured the Soviet Union in the mid-1980s, it was the enterprising and irrepressible Alexander Kan who invited the group and organized the visit against improbable odds. In 1988 Charles Amirkhanian turned the tables and invited Mr. Kan to the KPFA studio for a discussion. At the time, Mr. Kan was the leading Soviet producer of new music, avant-garde jazz, and experimental rock. The founder of the Leningrad Contemporary Music Club, (which throughout the late 1970s until it was banned in the 1980s, served as a solitary bastion of artistic free expression), is joined by Larry Ochs of ROVA, as they wend their way through an artistic motherlode of unofficial recordings made in performance during the 1980s. Musical selections heard range from free jazz performances by Aleksander Rjabov, Vladimir Chekasin, Sergeĭ Kurëkhin, and Anato...
