51. radiOM.org - La Monte Young: 42 for Henry Flynt [5.076% Popularity: 0.00000]
La Monte Young: 42 for Henry Flynt Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 17 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA La Monte Young is an American associated with the group of composers who have derived a good deal of their impetus from the music and personality of John Cage. He was a student at the University of California, where much of his early music was performed in the late 1950's. Since that time he has gone on to fame as a progenitor of the minimalist music movement. His hypnotic electronic and electric keyboard works, ranging from drones to blues and from equal temperament to just intonation, have maintained their fascination for a growing portion of underground music lovers worldwide. By his own admission he is perhaps the most significant composer since Ludwig van Beethoven. For many years now Young has collaborated with the visual artist, Marian Zazeela, whose remarkable light environments frame his musical ideas perfectly, surrounding the performance area with illusory effects in radiant ...

53. radiOM.org - Flux Art: An Historical Perspective [5.075% Popularity: 0.00000]
Flux Art: An Historical Perspective Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 58 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KRAB An interview with George Maciunas, about the Fluxus art movement, a loose confederation of composers, poets and artists that included such well-known figures as Yoko Ono, and Nam June Paik, Allan Kaprow, Alison Knowles, Dick Higgins. and George Brecht. Initially inspired by John Cage's Experimental Music Composition classes at the New School for Social Research, La Monte Young's influential series of performances in the Chambers Street loft in Manhattan, and the growing interest in conceptual art happenings of the 1960s, the Fluxus movement became famous for its radical avant-garde approach to Art and Music. Like the Dadists and Situationists, Fluxus artists were largely instilled with a do-it-yourself sensibility and an interest in largely unstructured participatory events or happenings. According to George Brecht: “In Fluxus there has never been any attempt to agree on aims or me...
54. radiOM.org - Clark Coolidge: Poetry Reading at the Naropa Institute, 1980 [5.075% Popularity: 0.00000]
Clark Coolidge: Poetry Reading at the Naropa Institute, 1980 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 46 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA A poetry reading by Clark Coolidge given at the Naropa Institute in Boulder Colorado, on July 2, 1980. 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. The introduction to this reading appears to be given by Allen Ginsberg. Note: Possible vulgar language Musical Selections: Thought to be said, impossible and pronounced -- Y...
55. radiOM.org - An Interview with Virgil Thomson [5.075% 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...
56. radiOM.org - An Interview with Toshi Ichiyanagi, 1967 [5.075% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Interview with Toshi Ichiyanagi, 1967 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 32 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: Shere/KPFA Recorded at the Beresford Hotel in San Francisco on December 12, 1967, Charles Shere interviews the Japanese avant-garde composer, Toshi Ichiyanagi. The two discuss their dismay over the exodus of experimental composers from the San Francisco Bay Area since the heyday of the San Francisco Tape Center in the early 1960s. Shere also questions the globe-trotting Ichiyanagi about the contrasting styles of composers from different regions of the world, and the regrettable tendency of composers to criticize each other. Also touched upon are Ichiyanagi’s opinions about John Cage’s efforts to inform his music with the lessons of Zen Buddhism, an attempt that Ichiyanagi thinks might be too cerebral. Despite his apparent fluency in English, it is possible that Ichiyanagi was slightly hampered in expressing his full views by conducting the interview in a foreign language, however t...

Morning Concert: Interview with Philip Corner, 1979 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 134 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From January 4, 1979, Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer Phil Corner. Born April 10, 1933 in New York, Corner studied briefly with Olivier Messiaen in Paris in 1955, and in 1958, at the New School for Social Research, he attended John Cage’s class which also included such distinguished budding artists as Allan Kaprow, George Brecht, Dick Higgins, and others who would make their marks in the lively East Village scene of the 1960s. As a member of the faculty of Livingston College (Rutgers University, New Jersey), Corner continued his provocative, improvisation-oriented music making based on highly original open-ended hand calligraphed performance notations which have become a trademark of his style. In this program he discusses his interest in gamelan and gong music and other aspects of his prodigious output, as well as giving a live performance of par...
58. radiOM.org - A Poetry Reading by Clark Coolidge [5.075% 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...
59. radiOM.org - Labyrinth No. 3 by Lou Harrison (August 26, 1967) [5.074% Popularity: 0.00000]
Labyrinth No. 3 by Lou Harrison (August 26, 1967) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 19 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded at the Cabrillo Music Festival in Aptos, CA, on August 26, 1967 this is Lou Harrison’s “Labyrinth No. 3,” for percussion ensemble. Originally scored for 11 percussionists it is possible that this particular performance was arranged for a differently sized ensemble. Regardless, this delightful work is perhaps one of the best examples of the many contemporary classical compositions for percussion orchestra that were created by young modern composers such a Colin McPhee and John Cage during the first half of the 20th century. Listening to this performance one can easily detect the influence of the gamelan music of Indonesia that McPhee helped introduced to Western audiences, and which Harrison later went on to champion. The performance here, under the direction of Gerhard Samuel, is presumably by members of the Cabrillo Festival orchestra and the recording is of qui...
