Ode To Gravity: Segue Tech Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 61 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Introduced in the KPFA Folio with only the brief phrase, “to put side by side, put close together”, this program follows the same formula of other early Ode to Gravity programs by juxtaposing musical selections from a variety of styles and genres. It begins with a Tin Pan Alley song from the 1920s quickly followed by a quirky player piano piece, an experimental work for flute and voice, piano rag music, and it only gets better from there.

76. radiOM.org - John Cage in Conversation with Morton Feldman, Radio Happening 2 of 5 [0.691% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage in Conversation with Morton Feldman, Radio Happening 2 of 5 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 50 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...

The difference between academic avant-garde music concerts and the more adventurous programing of multi-media works, new wave rock bands, and sound installations featured at the New Music America Festivals, is fully explored. 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.

With a bit of the old, the new, and the old made new again, the concert included three eclectic compositions by composer Mark Applebaum: one featuring synchronized hand gestures combined with electronically processed vocalizations, another aleatoric piece for instrumental ensemble and projected graphic score, and an installation that was part sound sculpture and part unique electronic instrument called the Mouseketier. These amazing electro-acoustic pieces were followed by two works by the oft overlooked composer of new music, Joseph Byrd. Composed in the early 1960s, “Water Music” and “Animals” explore the potential of percussion music, be it with traditional i...
