The appropriate size of such events and the correct role of the music critic in promoting or reviewing such concerts is also touched upon in this, at time contentious, but always cordial, discussion.

Morning Concert: Alexander Kan: Mr. New Music USSR Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 123 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA When the ROVA Saxophone Quartet toured the Soviet Union in the mid-1980s, it was the enterprising and irrepressible Alexander Kan who invited the group and organized the visit against improbable odds. In 1988 Charles Amirkhanian turned the tables and invited Mr. Kan to the KPFA studio for a discussion. At the time, Mr. Kan was the leading Soviet producer of new music, avant-garde jazz, and experimental rock. The founder of the Leningrad Contemporary Music Club, (which throughout the late 1970s until it was banned in the 1980s, served as a solitary bastion of artistic free expression), is joined by Larry Ochs of ROVA, as they wend their way through an artistic motherlode of unofficial recordings made in performance during the 1980s. Musical selections heard range from free jazz performances by Aleksander Rjabov, Vladimir Chekasin, Sergeĭ Kurëkhin, and Anato...

Other Minds Festival: OM 15: Panel Discussion 3 View Item Type: Video Duration: 36 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) The third night of the 15th Other Minds Festival of New Music (OM 15) began with a panel discussion with the composers whose works were to be featured in that night’s concert, which was held on March 6, 2010. Joining moderator Charles Amirkhanian on stage were, Gyan Riley, who is known for his guitar playing as well as composing, minimalist composer Tom Johnson, and violinist, composer, and indy rock personality Carla Kihlstedt. Johnson describes his fascination with minimal music, which for him means works with a limited number of notes, a single main idea, and often a mathematically based progression. Unlike the elegant simplicity of Johnson, Kihlstedt describes her composing style as “messy,” typically starting with a wide variety of ideas that are examined, aligned, and developed in a manner that she describes as “o...

79. - Music Review Source & Space [5.283% Popularity: 0.00000]
Music Review: Source & Space Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 18 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA In this brief program, recorded in May 1971, Charles Amirkhanian reviews issues 7 & 8 of “Source: Music of the Avant-Garde,” a biannual periodical of unusual music and art, as well as “Space” a book of poetry by Clark Coolidge. “Source,” published by Larry Austin, Stanley Lunetta, and Arthur Woodbury, was an extraordinary magazine that presented articles, musical scores, and even included actual 10” discs of recorded music. Devoted to the avant-garde, it was a premiere publication for electronic music and intermedia art that was otherwise overlooked by the more mainstream press. Amirkhanian describes the spiral bound format that combined exceptional production values with a do-it-yourself sensibility, while also listing some of the content, including works by John Cage, Mark Riener, & Alvin Lucier, among others. Amirkhanian then turns his attention to “Space” by Coolidge, describing the...
80. - Morning Concert Criticism of San Francisco Chronicle Music Critics [5.894% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Criticism of San Francisco Chronicle Music Critics Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 15 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded in 1975, Charles Amirkhanian discusses the politics of new music in the San Francisco Bay Area, with reference to the unsympathetic criticism, leveled at avant-garde artists such as John Cage and Merce Cunningham, by music critics at the New York Times and San Francisco Chronicle, among others. Amirkhanian argues that while Bay Area audiences clearly support the radical styles of the avant-garde, the local papers of note only employ music critics that favor the contemporary classical music of more academically oriented composers, such as Roger Sessions. Amirkhanian points out that these critics routinely disparage the avant-garde composers as charlatans and purveyors of puns, jokes, and gags, all the while refusing to even describe these experimental works in their articles. Reading from a letter that he wrote...
