43. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Rigid Foxhole [r i g i d f o x h o l e] [5.078% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Rigid Foxhole [r i g i d f o x h o l e] Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 61 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) This incurably bizarre program, somewhat reminiscent of John Cage's “Indeterminacy”, begins with "I had a hankering to shoot pins at Bartok." It features a mix of prerecorded electronic and radio drama sound sources mixed with tape delay under readings of experimental texts by Charles Amirkhanian read by Carol Law, Anthony J. Gnazzo and Amirkhanian himself. Performed live in the KPFA studios, the writing is influenced by William S. Burroughs, Clark Coolidge, and Fluxus happenings artists Dick Higgins, Alison Knowles and Allan Kaprow. The program builds to a searing intensity as Gnazzo moves on to recite records for eating, spitting and consumption by "trenchermen" like Bozo Miller of Oakland, California, while dinner is cooked by Law, Gnazzo, Amirkhanian and Richard Friedman, as heard in an ambient kitchen recording in th...
44. radiOM.org - Morning Concert An Interview with Charlemagne Palestine [5.077% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: An Interview with Charlemagne Palestine Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 13 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA In this brief interview with Charles Amirkhanian, recorded on Nov. 20, 1980, composer Charlemagne Palestine discusses how his early minimal drone works were a reaction to the dense compositional style of Karlheinz Stockhausen and John Cage, but have since evolved beyond basic minimalism to embrace a more complex sonority. He then goes on to give a description of his string piece for 11 performers, “Birth of a Sonority”, as well as his pieces for the Bösendorfer piano. Much of Palestine’s work is focused on the use of overtones. The interview concludes with an excerpt of “Schlingen Blaengen” an organ piece recorded in 1979. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Schlingen Blaengen [excerpt] (1979) / Charlemagne Palestine Genre: 20th Century Classical Subject: Palestine, Charlemagne ; 20th century classical ; Harmonics (Music) ; Organ music People: Amirkhania...
45. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Interview with Jacques Bekaert [5.077% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Interview with Jacques Bekaert Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 86 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA The radical Belgian political reporter Jacques Bekaert, a star of that country’s free-swinging national radio program, “King Kong”, is surreptitiously a prolific and talented avant-garde composer. While in the States to cover the 1972 presidential race he talked with Charles Amirkhanian about his music in this informal interview. Bekaert gives his impressions of the Nixon presidential campaign and then introduces four of his pieces, including a work utilizing the election eve speech of American Independent presidential hopeful John Schmitz in a quadraphonic sound poem. Musical Selections: Henry David Thoreau Thinks That, Like Soil, Silence Is of Various Depths and Fertility (1972) -- Summer Music: Nos. 9, 10, & 11 (1970) -- A Summer Day at Stony Point (1968-69) -- John Schmitz Is the Message (1972) Performers: Mills Center Contemporary Players (Thoreau ; Summer...
46. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 19: An Orchestra Is Born [5.077% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 19: An Orchestra Is Born Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 17 min Event Type: Inter-Media and Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) One in a series of groundbreaking, audience participatory Radio Events, produced by KPFA in Berkeley California. For this program, Anthony Gnazzo solicited from KPFA listeners, brief recordings of various sounds of their own choosing. This collection was then subjected to chance operations by Gnazzo, and lo and behold, “An Orchestra Is Born.” Somewhat reminiscent of John Cage’s “33 1/3”, the resulting auditory montage is a wonderfully diverse mix of spoken word, music, and just down right bizarre sounds. Musical Selections: [collage of fragments of spoken word, music, and sundry sounds] Genre: Interactive Art Subject: Participatory art ; Interactive art ; Audience participation radio programs ; Aleatory music People: Gnazzo, Anthony, 1936- Recording Date: 9/5/1972 First Broadcast Date: 9/15/1972 Listen...
47. radiOM.org - Words Program No. 5: Clark Coolidge [5.077% Popularity: 0.00000]
Words: Program No. 5: Clark Coolidge Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 64 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA One in a series of programs produced by Clark Coolidge that feature the works of late 20th century poets, sound poets, and authors. This recording contains a tape-word piece called “Preface” created by Coolidge himself. In it he has taken a pre- recorded introduction or preface, (probably borrowed from a commercial album), in which an unidentified radio announcer describes the experimental and aleatoric nature of John Cage’s “Variations Four” and “Variations Five”, and has cut it up and rearranged it, repeatedly over a period of more than an hour. With each iteration the text becomes more unintelligible until it is just a series of random phrases and syllables. The effect is hypnotic as one tends to focus less and less on the meaning of the words and more upon their sound. A fitting tribute to Cage, who always thought that we were surrounded by music, if we only took the time to...
48. radiOM.org - Lexical Music [5.076% Popularity: 0.00000]
Lexical Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 47 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: C Amirkhanian Additional Media Files (click to view) Released in 1980, this first solo LP by Charles Amirkhanian contains a selection of his text-sound compositions including “Dutiful Ducks”, “Mugic”, and “Seatbelt Seatbelt”. With influences from Ernst Toch's 1930 “Geographical Fugue” and Kurt Schwitters “Ursonate” to Gertrude Stein, Clark Coolidge and Steve Reich, Amirkhanian fashions words into percussion objects, layering them contrapuntally and non-syntactically. The resulting sounds lead to a reexamination of spoken language and its musical essence. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Muchrooms (for John Cage) -- Mahogany Ballpark -- She She and She (for Gertrude Stein's centennial) Genre: Sound Poetry Subject: Sound poetry ; Text-sound compositions People: Amirkhanian, Charles Part 2 of 2: Musical Selections: Mugic -- Seatbelt Seatbelt -- Dutiful Ducks Genre: Sound Poetry Subject: Sound poetry ; Text-so...
49. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Criticism of San Francisco Chronicle Music Critics [5.076% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Criticism of San Francisco Chronicle Music Critics Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 15 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded in 1975, Charles Amirkhanian discusses the politics of new music in the San Francisco Bay Area, with reference to the unsympathetic criticism, leveled at avant-garde artists such as John Cage and Merce Cunningham, by music critics at the New York Times and San Francisco Chronicle, among others. Amirkhanian argues that while Bay Area audiences clearly support the radical styles of the avant-garde, the local papers of note only employ music critics that favor the contemporary classical music of more academically oriented composers, such as Roger Sessions. Amirkhanian points out that these critics routinely disparage the avant-garde composers as charlatans and purveyors of puns, jokes, and gags, all the while refusing to even describe these experimental works in their articles. Reading from a letter that he wro...
