71. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Segue Tech [5.104% Popularity: 0.00000]
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. Musical Selections: Varsity Drag [lyrics by Buddy De Sylva & Lew Brown] / Ray Henderson -- [unidentified player piano music] / Conlon Nancarrow -- [unidentified piece for flute and voice] -- [unidentified piano rag music] / Igor Stravinsky -- Labyrinth No. 3 (1941) / Lou Harrison -- [unidentified brass band music] -- America (My Country Tis of Thee) -- [unidentified electronic piece] -- Haydn go seek / Charles Amirkhanian -- Composition No. 1, for ratchet (196...
72. 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...
73. radiOM.org - New Music America 1981: Charles Amirkhanian Interviews Music Critics John Rockwell & Charles Shere [5.936% Popularity: 0.00000]
New Music America: 1981: Charles Amirkhanian Interviews Music Critics John Rockwell & Charles Shere Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 21 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian engages former KPFA music programers and current music critics, John Rockwell and Charles Shere, in a fascinating discussion about the state of New Music and the New Music America Festivals. 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.

Music Review: Music and Anarchy: A Defense Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 12 min Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA This was meant as a response to a number of complaints received by the KPFA Music Department about broadcasts of admittedly avant-garde music and spoken word performances, that were described by some as “aesthetic anarchy.” Department Director Charles Amirkhanian makes an unequivocal denial of such claims, and then proceeds to read from an article defining and defending anarchy in politics and life in general.

76. radiOM.org - About Ear Magazine [1.218% Popularity: 0.00000]
About Ear Magazine Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 53 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Two related discussions of “Ear” magazine with host Charles Amirkhanian and Ear’s editor, Charles Shere , and publisher, Anne Kish. This program provides not only a behind the scenes look at “Ear” which had, at the time of this recording on January 23, 1973, just published it’s first edition, but also at the making of a radio review, as the first segment features the three discussing both “Ear” magazine and the way in which KPFA would review it, while the second segment features a more polished or edited review that was ready for broadcast. “Ear” was founded in Berkeley CA, in 1973 by Shere, Kish, with the assistance of an all volunteer staff. Intended as a means to galvanize a sense of community among Bay Area classical musicians, the magazine featured concert listings and articles highlighting not only major performances of traditional classical music, but also more contemporary and avant-garde e...
77. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Alexander Kan: Mr. New Music USSR [5.872% Popularity: 0.00000]
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...

New Music America: 1981: Concert 4, (June 10, 1981) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 96 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA In 1981 the New Music America Festival came to San Francisco for a week full of concerts, sound installations, and multi-media performances.

These were followed by an unidentified computer music piece, presented by the composer herself. Violinist and violist LaDonna Smith and guitarist Davey Williams then presented two distinctly avant...

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...
