61. radiOM.org - An Interview with Margaret Leng Tan (July 17, 1984) [5.074% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Interview with Margaret Leng Tan (July 17, 1984) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 18 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian interviews pianist Margaret Leng Tan, recorded on July 17, 1984. Born in Singapore in 1945, Tan is a classically trained musician who is perhaps best known for her performances on the toy piano and other unconventional instruments, and as a renowned interpreter of the works of John Cage and similar avant-garde composers. Tan attended Juilliard where she was the first woman ever to receive a Doctorate from the famous university. Her thesis was on the free or experimental music of Percy Grainger, and her personal relationship with his family gave her complete access to his archives, and to fully explore his early experiments with electro-mechanical music instruments. Despite her traditional music background Tan, perhaps influenced by her own ancestry, quickly began exploring both world music, as well as those Asian-influenced new music compositions...
62. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity The Art and Music of Gerd De Vries [5.074% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: The Art and Music of Gerd De Vries Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 67 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian presents a program on German composer and musicologist, Gerd de Vries, whose efforts to modernize the establishment’s music dictionary, Riemann’s “Musick Lexicon,” have been much appreciated by avant-garde composers. Due to his efforts, entries for such important composers as John Cage have gone from being just a couple of sentences long, to now filling up more than a page, in this well known musical reference work. In addition to discussing his editorial work de Vries also talks about his austere compositions for organ, which often contain only the minimum number of elements possible in a sound event. Included are organ performances by de Vries as well as a talk with the composer recorded during a walk downtown in Amsterdam on Jan. 19, 1974. This program also contains a discussion of the work of Peter Roehr, a conceptual artist whose wo...

Peter Yates interviewed by Charles Shere Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 43 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) In an interview recorded on Dec. 7, 1964, Peter Yates, a self described “professional amateur”, talks about the artistic implications of New Music. The conversation begins with an exploration of the connections between New Music and Zen Buddhism. According to Yates, the appreciation of new and electronic music is best accomplished by freeing one’s self of preconceptions and by surrendering one’s self to the act of listening. As further evidence of a shifting paradigm in the world of art, Yates points to the increasing popularity of happenings and other forms of interactive art. Also discussed is John Cage’s piece “4’33””, and other attempts to challenge the established aesthetics of the day. The interview ends with a discussion on how best to employ the new aesthetics without defiling one’s self or completely alienating the audience. The ...

Interview with Morton Feldman, July 1967 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 55 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA This wide ranging, literate, and always fascinating conversation between composer Morton Feldman and writer/composer/journalist (and former KPFA music director) Charles Shere touches on the work of various composers, performers, artists, and writers. Feldman talks about ways of composing, including his own, and to what degree a composer is "on the make" with regard to his audience. The composers Feldman and Shere discuss include John Cage, Christian Wolff, Arnold Schoenberg, Anton Webern, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Olivier Messiaen, Pierre Boulez, Luciano Berio, and Milton Babbitt. Surprisingly, Feldman admits to admiring Babbitt, and wishes that he himself could write serialized music freehand, like Babbitt. Is it true that music will always have a great past, but never a great future? Is Feldman's music limited because he doesn't believe in Hegel? Discover the answers in this fa...
