71. radiOM.org - An Avant-Garde Christmas Concert by the S.F. Conservatory of New Music Ensemble, (Dec. 3, 1970) [7.182% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Avant-Garde Christmas Concert by the S.F. Conservatory of New Music Ensemble, (Dec. 3, 1970) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 81 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA On December 3, 1970 the San Francisco Conservatory New Music Ensemble presented this Avant-Garde Christmas Concert, at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco. The concert begins with “The Queens’ Funeral March and Canzona,” which was originally composed by Henry Purcell as incidental music for a play but was used for the funeral procession of Queen Mary in 1695. It has been orchestrated here by Robert Moran. This is followed by Purcell’s “Fantazia No. 6” and a reprise of the “March,” all orchestrated by Moran in which no notes have been added or subtracted, but merely reassigned to different instruments. We then hear an original composition by Moran, based on a simple two voice musical example by Purcell and entitled “Variations for Mr. Purcell.” The concert then takes a distinctly more modern turn with Shinʾichi Matsushita aleat...
72. radiOM.org - Other Minds Presents Henry Cowell: The Whole World of Music, Concert One [5.772% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Presents: Henry Cowell: The Whole World of Music, Concert One Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 76 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds On November 12, 2009, at the Valley Presbyterian Church in Portola Valley, CA, Other Minds presented the first of two concerts dedicated to the music of Henry Cowell. Born in nearby Menlo Park in 1897, Cowell began his musical career as a concert pianist, and is perhaps best known for pioneering such “ultramodern” performance techniques as “tone clusters,” in which the arms are used to play a number of notes simultaneously, and the direct manipulation of the strings of the piano, in a manner that presaged John Cage’s works for prepared piano. Yet Cowell’s greatest contribution to avant-garde music came with his publication of the journal “New Music Quarterly” and its associated recordings. First issued in 1927, and edited by Cowell until 1936 this journal was where many works, by what are now recognized as the greatest 20th century American ...

74. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 5, Concert 1: 11 “The Lighthouse” by Errollyn Wallen [3.921% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 5, Concert 1: 11 “The Lighthouse” by Errollyn Wallen Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 4 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds The music of composer Errollyn Wallen spans numerous styles from avant-garde classical to jazz song writing. She has composed extensively for chamber media, including piano solo and duet, string quartet and various mixed ensembles, often with voice. In between her work on classical composition, Wallen began in 1988 writing pop/jazz songs for a change of pace. The results are electrifying, as she moves freely among influences ranging from Laurie Anderson to Gospel, Bill Evans, Blues, Schubert, and Ives. Beginning in A Major and concluding in G Minor, “The Lighthouse” is a touching tribute to California composer-pianist, Ronald Avant, who died of AIDS in 1990. The presentation of this work was made possible with the support of Jeanne & Howard Baumgarten. Musical Selections: The Lighthouse (3:33) / Errollyn Wallen [U. S. premiere] Performers...

76. radiOM.org - Vexations by Erik Satie [0.249% Popularity: 0.00000]
Vexations by Erik Satie Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 46 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA This is a 45 minute live performance by an unidentified pianist of Erik Satie’s “Vexations.” The work was composed in 1893 and although no particular instrument is specified in the score it has long been assumed that it was intended for the piano. The piece consists of a short theme that is repeated sometimes by itself and other times with the chords above. The manuscript has an inscription that states “Pour se jouer 840 fois de suite ce motif, il sera bon de se préparer au préalable, et dans le plus grand silence, par des immobilités sérieuses,” which has been translated as “in order to play the theme 840 times in succession, it would be advisable to prepare oneself beforehand and in the deepest silence, by serious immobilites.” Many artists have interpreted this as a statement of Satie’s intention that the piece requires the full 840 repetitions which can mean that a full performance can take in...

Michael Bach discusses the inspiration for Dieter Schnebel’s “Mit Diesen Händen” as well as describing his unique curved BACH.bow that he uses to perform it. Åke Parmerud then reflects on the nature of science and the concept that all of creation can be considered as a single organic machine, and how he has used it as the philosophical basis for his tape piece “La Vie Mécanique”. Elena Kats-Chernin describes her works for piano, which despite their deceptively simple structure, are in fact incredibly difficult to play. And a somewhat taciturn Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith offers a brief introduction to his compositional technique, while also declaring his personal predilection to not talk about h...

80. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 11, Concert 3: 01 “Strange and Sacred Noise” by John Luther Adams [0.670% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 11, Concert 3: 01 “Strange and Sacred Noise” by John Luther Adams Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 38 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Composer John Luther Adams presents the West Coast premiere of five movements from his “Strange and Sacred Noise”, an evening-length suite for percussion quartet in which Adams devotes each movement to various combinations of like instruments: "...dust unto dust..." is for snare drums; "clusters on a quadrilateral grid" invites the players to strike hair-raising simultaneous chords on multiple vibraphones; and "solitary and time-breaking waves" is scored for a battery of tom-toms. Living in the boreal forest near Fairbanks, Alaska, Adams has created a unique musical world grounded in the elemental landscapes and indigenous cultures of the North, exploring natural phenomena from the songs of birds to the complex nature of chaos, fractal geometry, and elemental noise. His book “Winter Music: Composing the North” was released b...
