51. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity The Music of Larry Parque [5.901% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: The Music of Larry Parque Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 56 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA A program dedicated to the music of San Francisco Bay Area composer Larry Parque, who has experimented extensively with graphic notation and mathematical forms in music. Parque, an architect and a member of the faculty of the San Francisco State University’s Interdisciplinary Creative Arts Department was, at the time of this recording, engaged in composing a work for 21 musicians and 21 film projectors. In this program you will hear “Set II” and “Duet from Ellie”, both performed by Mimi Dye on viola and Douglas Blumenstock on cello, as well as a provocative discussion with the composer and performers. The cellist attacks the composer over how much the music depends on the sensitivity and improvisational skills of the performers, as opposed to the vision of the composer. (from KPFA Folio) Musical Selections: Set II (1968-69) (17:42) / Larry Parque -- Duet from Ellie ...
52. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Swedish Sound Poet and Composer, Lars-Gunnar Bodin [0.821% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Swedish Sound Poet and Composer, Lars-Gunnar Bodin Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 128 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA Amirkhanian talks with the pioneering Swedish composer Lars-Gunnar Bodin. As member of the avant-garde Fylkingen Society starting in 1962, and as Director of the famous Electronic Music Studio in Stockholm, Bodin played a pivotal role in the advancement of electronic music, sound poetry, and inter-media art in Sweden, Europe, and indeed the whole world. The festivals of text-sound compositions that he helped organize in the 1970s were instrumental in helping this emerging art form gain acceptance among the avant-garde composers of the 20th century. This program includes several experimental compositions by Bodin and others as well as a demonstration of a computer mix-down technique utilized by Bodin. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Clouds [excerpt] / Lars-Gunnar Bodin -- Exmex / Tommy Zwedberg Genres: Sound Poetry ; Electro-Acoustic / Electronic ...
53. radiOM.org - Diamánda Galás Live at the La Jolla Museum, (May 21, 1983) [5.081% Popularity: 0.00000]
Diamánda Galás Live at the La Jolla Museum, (May 21, 1983) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 17 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded live on May 21, 1983 at the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art, Diamánda Galás performs her “Wild Women with Steak-Knives,” an avant-garde performance art work for vocals and live signal processing. Part of her 1981 album “The Litanies of Satan,” the piece features the operatic range and diabolic inflections of vintage Galás. With sounds that vary from hisses, to screeches, moans, hollers, spits, and stutters, all accompanied by minimal electronic manipulations and elaboration, this harrowing work is part torture and part catharsis. The work’s subtitle, “The Homicidal Love Song for Solo Scream” sets the stage for what may be to some an evocative commentary on domestic violence and for others simply unbearable noise, but regardless of one’s personal reaction, the memory of this work will always be etched deeply within the mind of any one who listens.

Morning Concert: Lars-Gunnar Bodin and New Music from Sweden Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 141 mins Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program originally recorded on February 24, 1975, Charles Amirkhanian interviews visiting composer Lars-Gunnar Bodin, live in the studios of KPFA. Bodin, one of the most prominent composers in Sweden, is a leading practitioner of text-sound composition and electronic music. At the time of this recording Bodin was in the middle of a world tour that would take him to India and Iran, and yet he found the time to sit down with Amirkhanian to talk about his music as well as present a selection of compositions by other Sweden based composers. Much of the program is devoted to listening to Bodin’s “From Clouds.” The composition, elements of which were to accompany a large multi-media and theatrical piece entitled “Clouds,” features organ and other musique concrète sounds, all heavily processed by means of tape manipulation and analog synthesizer...
56. radiOM.org - Other Minds Presents Rudhyar In Retrospect: Concert Two (Sept. 29, 2010) [5.040% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Presents: Rudhyar In Retrospect: Concert Two (Sept. 29, 2010) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 77 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds On September, 29, 2010, at the Valley Presbyterian Church in Portola Valley, CA, Other Minds presented the second of two concerts dedicated to the music of composer, author, astrologer, painter, and philosopher, Dane Rudhyar. A true Renaissance man, Dane Rudhyar was born in Paris, France in 1895, studied briefly at the Paris Conservatoire, and published his first musical compositions, as well as a book on Claude Debussy, by 1913. In 1916, in a move that he compared to going to the moon, Rudhyar came to the United States where he eventually settled down in California. Throughout the 1920s and 30s Rudhyar continued to compose avant-garde music including scores for plays, ritual dances, and radical “multimedia” performances. However with the advent of the Great Depression, Rudhyar found less support for his type of experimental music, so he beg...
57. radiOM.org - Other Minds Presents Post-Screening Q & A with Frank Scheffer and Chou Wen-Chung [1.242% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Presents: Post-Screening Q & A with Frank Scheffer and Chou Wen-Chung View Item Type: Video Duration: 25 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Following the Other Minds sponsored, U. S. premiere of the film “Edgard Varèse: The One All Alone,” held in San Francisco on April 19, 2010, Charles Amirkhanian talks with the film’s director, Frank Scheffer, and Varèse’s student and protégé, the Chinese composer Chou Wen-Chung. Dutch director Scheffer makes it clear that his film is not an attempt to visually interpret Varèse’s music, something that he would consider impossible and ill-advised. However he does talk of the possible transformative nature of film, while also explaining his technique for using images in conjunction with music and interviews, in order to give some sense of the famous composer’s life and work. Chou Wen-Chung provides additional insights into Varèse, including his occasional use of salty language and the various ups and downs in his early career a...

New Music for Pianos : Live Recordings by ONCE Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 50 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Based in Ann Arbor, MI, ONCE was one of the most experimental groups of American composers active in the mid-20th century. Among its members were many that even until this day remain fairly obscure, although others, such as Robert Ashley and Gordon Mumma, have gone on to become well-known throughout North America and the world. In this program you will hear a selection of early, largely aleatoric works that were first presented in a series called New Music for Pianos, and were performed at a variety of Midwestern universities during the 1960s. The program begins with “Cassiopeia” by George Cacioppo, a two minute piece consisting of four structures written on a single page. They can be played in any order and are here performed by Robert Ashley and Gordon Mumma. This is followed by Ashley’s own “Detail 2b” composed in 1962. The one obvious characteristic of the piece is the i...

60. radiOM.org - Mimi Johnson on Lovely Music [1.262% Popularity: 0.00000]
Mimi Johnson on Lovely Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 12 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Recorded backstage at the Walker Art Center on June 12, 1980, Charles Amirkhanian interviews Mimi Johnson, founder of Lovely Music, a record label dedicated to New Music. Johnson’s company has released albums by a number of avant-garde composers, including many from the San Francisco Bay Area, such as Blue Gene Tyranny, Robert Ashley, and Maggi Payne. While Johnson admits that it is easy for composers to issue their own albums, she claims that many artists prefer to have a little distance between their creative process and the business of selling their music, and that distance, as well as a degree of professional production, is what her company offers. In addition to describing her plans to become profitable within 10 years, Johnson and Amirkhanian also discuss the packaging of Lovely Records and their preference of LPs over the smaller and less attractive tape cassettes. Genre: New Music...
