47. radiOM.org - The Music of Orlando García [3.778% Popularity: 0.00000]

48. radiOM.org - Music by Josef M. Hauer, Stephen Foster, and other minstrel songs [3.762% Popularity: 0.00000]
Music by Josef M. Hauer, Stephen Foster, and other minstrel songs Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Music A program featuring a composition by Josef Matthias Hauer and a selection of minstrel songs by Stephen Collins Foster and others. While minstrel shows have rightfully come to be regarded with suspicion because of their promotion of racial stereotypes, their obvious co-opting of African American traditions for the entertainment of white audiences, and the enrichment of white composers and performers, the fact is they were very popular in the latter half of the 19th century and remain historically and musically relevant even today. One doesn’t have to support segregation or racism in order to enjoy these standards from the days of traveling medicine shows, as long as one is mindful of the shame of slavery and honors the resilient spirit of those so inflicted, and recognize how they used music as a salve for their souls. Musical Selections: Der Menschen Weg Op. 67 [text by Friedr...
49. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Joanna Brouk interviews Steve Reich [3.567% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Joanna Brouk interviews Steve Reich Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 87 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Steve Reich, noted musician and contemporary composer, plays his music and talks about his sounds and their dimensions with Joanna Brouk. The program begins with Reich’s piece “Six Pianos”, and after listening to it he describes how his experience as a percussionist influenced this composition. The next piece played is “Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices, and Organ” which is also in the minimalist style, and features the delicate vocals of three women blended with an instrumental ensemble. Brouk then suggests that much of Reich’s music resembles the percussion patterns found in Balinese Gamelan music, something that Reich agrees to in general principle, although he makes it clear that these pieces were composed before he had studied the music of Indonesia and were written for Western instruments. Reich is also hesitant to accept Brouk’s suggestion that h...

Dresden Interleaf and Medium Size Mograph by Gordon Mumma Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 21 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Gordon Mumma was born in 1935 in Framingham, Mass. One of the originators of the ONCE Festival, he has also established, in collaboration with Robert Ashley, several tours of contemporary music productions. Mumma’s composition “Mograph-Interleaf-Mograph” makes use of large sections of electronic music materials.

The first Mograph section is for piano, performed by two pianists. The final Mograph section is also for piano, but the sounds are directly modified by electronic means and heard from loudspeakers. The work was composed between 1963 and 1965. In this recording we hear the final two sections only: “Dresden Interleaf” and “Medium Size Mograph.” The pianists are Mumma and Robert Ashley a...
