Rex Radio: The Music of Bill Horvitz Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 61 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Phil Lesh and Gary Lambert present music from New York guitarist-composer Bill Horvitz. After a brief introduction a series of musical selections are heard including recordings of a jazz ensemble performing “The Mirrored Heart” and “The Way It Feels,” both recorded on December 5, 1986 at Roulette in New York City.

The first, “Coyote Man in the Center of the Sun,” was commissioned for a celebration of the Summer Solstice, and was inspired by a Native American creation story.

The next work is a collaboration between Gavin Bryars and Juan Muñoz in which the devious technique of dealing from the bottom of the deck is explained as the dulcet tones of a string quartet gently play in the background.

Ode To Gravity: The Music of Claude Ballif Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 92 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) French composer Claude Ballif is interviewed in his Paris home by Charles Amirkhanian (recorded on December 31,1973). Ballif writes music of enormous strength and clarity. Like his compatriot Messiaen, his music is the result of his deep involvement in Catholicism, a fact which he discusses in the interview. 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 shown himself open to a variety of influences stemming from his contac...

These works are performed on two sets of gamelan instruments designed and largely built by William Colvig. They are the Gamelan Si Betty, named for Betty Freeman who made possible its construction, and Gamelan Si Darius, named after composer Darius Milhaud. The clarity of the sound and...
