51. 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...
52. radiOM.org - Dresden Interleaf and Medium Size Mograph by Gordon Mumma [3.234% Popularity: 0.00000]
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 “Interleaf” section, by itself called “The Dresden Interleaf (13 February 1945) In Memoriam,” is almost entirely electronic, being composed on four-channel magnetic tape. 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...

54. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Music by Ballif, Bolcom, & Ligeti [3.228% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Music by Ballif, Bolcom, & Ligeti Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian presents the music of the eccentric French composer, Claude Ballif. as well as a selection of piano rags performed by William Bolcom, and György Ligeti’s composition for harpsichord “Continuum.” Ballif wrote music of enormous strength and clarity. Like his compatriot Olivier Messiaen, his music is the result of his deep involvement in Catholicism. Little known in the United States at the time of this recording, Ballif had produced a highly original and very unified series of works dating back to the mid-1950s. He was a professor of music at the Reims Conservatory and the product of the exciting and turbulent post World War II years of the Western avant-garde which saw the rise of such musical metaphysicians as Pierre Boulez and Karlheinz Stockhausen. But Ballif’s vision was a wide one, and he has sho...
55. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Guitarissimo, Part One: Solo Guitar Music [3.225% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Guitarissimo, Part One: Solo Guitar Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 127 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program originally recorded on September 1, 1992, guitar virtuoso David Tanenbaum joins Charles Amirkhanian for a presentation of contemporary solo guitar music, much of which extends the language of the instrument. Tanenbaum briefly discusses his own career and current projects before dipping into his extensive private collection of guitar music. Works heard include Robert Sierra’s “Toccata y Lamento,” Tristan Murail’s “Tellur,” and a rare recordings of “Ko-tha: Three Dances of Shiva” by Giacinto Scelsi, all performed by a variety of young, up and coming guitarists. The program continues with the Serbian guitarist Dušan Bogdanović performing his own “Introduction & Passacaglia for the Golden Flower,” Seth Josel’s recording of the lengthy work “Arien IV” by Sidney Corbett, and R. Murray Schafer’s “Le Cri de Merlin” a work in six movements,...
56. radiOM.org - John Cage in Conversation with Morton Feldman, Radio Happening 4 of 5 [3.223% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage in Conversation with Morton Feldman, Radio Happening 4 of 5 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 44 min Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: WBAI John Cage and Morton Feldman recorded four open-ended conversations at the studios of radio station WBAI in New York. These meetings spanned six months between July 1966 and January 1967, and were produced as five "Radio Happenings". Both men were at transitional points in their music. Cage had completed “Variations V” in 1965 and “Variations VI” and “Variations VII” in 1966, and would publish "A Year from Monday" in 1967. Most of Feldman's important work was yet to come. These conversations between two old friends, relaxed, smoking, and throwing out ideas, are full of laughter and long ponderous silences. They form an incredible historical record of their concerns and preoccupation with making music, art, society, and politics of the moment. In 1993 these conversations were transcribed and published as "Radio Happenings I-V" by Edition MusikText...
57. radiOM.org - Improv:21 Wayne Horvitz: Approaching Training and Musical Heritage in Improvisation and Composition [2.999% Popularity: 0.00000]
Improv:21: Wayne Horvitz: Approaching Training and Musical Heritage in Improvisation and Composition View Item Type: Video Duration: 122 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: ROVA Derk Richardson interviews composer and keyboardist Wayne Horvitz, recorded at the Red Poppy Art House in San Francisco on April 15, 2009, as part of the ROVA:Arts Improv 21 series of informances. Horvitz, who is as well known for his classical styled compositions as for his experimental jazz and avant-garde rock performances, discusses the social context of a variety of performance practices. He makes an eloquent argument for breaking down, or at least ignoring, the barriers between jazz and classical music; claiming that neither term adequately captures the nuances of current composing and performance techniques. While Horvitz admits that many of the great improvisers of the 1960s and 70s were essentially self taught musicians, and were perhaps unable to sight read a score, he feels that today’s improvisers often hav...
58. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 4, Concert 3: 01 “RetroDisrespective” by Paul Dresher [2.671% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 4, Concert 3: 01 “RetroDisrespective” by Paul Dresher Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 18 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Paul Dresher is an internationally active composer noted for his ability to integrate diverse musical influences into his own coherent and unique personal style. He pursues many forms of musical expression, including experimental opera and music theater, chamber and orchestral composition, live instrumental electro-acoustic chamber music performances, and scores for theater, dance, and film. His performances utilize progressive contemporary music technology and the theatrical works use the resources of experimental theater to examine diverse issues in contemporary American culture. As is typical of Dresher's solo works which involve the interaction with live electronics, “Retro-Disrespective” has a structure in which a sequence of sections are defined by the guitar techniques and/or sounds in combination with how the technology is used....
59. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 4, Concert 3: 04 “Chorale Times Two” by Paul Dresher [2.665% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 4, Concert 3: 04 “Chorale Times Two” by Paul Dresher Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 11 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Paul Dresher is an internationally active composer noted for his ability to integrate diverse musical influences into his own coherent and unique personal style. He pursues many forms of musical expression, including experimental opera and music theater, chamber and orchestral composition, live instrumental electro-acoustic chamber music performances, and scores for theater, dance, and film. His performances utilize progressive contemporary music technology and the theatrical works use the resources of experimental theater to examine diverse issues in contemporary American culture. While experimenting with a Yamaha SY-99 synthesizer Dresher created a synthesizer timbre that intrigued him sonically and from which kept emerging a simple expanding chord progression. This suggested the kind of core harmonic progressions embodied in Bach chor...
60. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music of Tim Souster [2.482% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music of Tim Souster Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 90 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA English composer, Tim Souster, visited the San Francisco Bay Area in 1978 in order to produce a new composition at Stanford University’s internationally renowned computer music center, and during his stay happily agreed to be interviewed on KPFA. Charles Amirkhanian introduces Souster and his music during the course of a lively program, recorded at the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Center on October 3, 1978. “Driftwood Cortege” (1978), Souster’s computer piece, completed earlier that day, is premiered. Also heard are selections from Souster’s recorded works, including “Surfeit” (his homage to the Beach Boys) and “Spectral” ( a viola piece based on the sounds of the humpback whale). Souster also gives his rationale for having become interested in computer generated music after a long history of involvement primarily as an instrumental composer. (from KPFA Folio) P...
