New Music from Cal Arts: James Tenney: Composer and Performer Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 89 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Ingram Marshall introduces performances and compositions by James Tenney, American composer, pianist and conductor. Tenney, who died in 2006, was the cofounder and director of the New York City based, Tone Roads Ensemble, and was an important member of the avant-garde scene in the 1960s and 70s. Between 1961 and 1964 he was the resident composer at Bell Labs where he became one of the first to experiment with digital synthesis and computer music. Later in his career he focused on composing for acoustic instruments and taught musical composition at CalArts where he influenced a new generation of composers. According to music critic Kyle Gann, when John Cage was asked in 1989 whom he would wish to study with if he were a young man today his answer was “James Tenney”.

72. radiOM.org - Music Review Source & Space [5.070% 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...

Speaking of Music: Alvin Curran, 1989 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 124 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer and musician Alvin Curran before a live audience on September 28, 1989, as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series. Curran creates a sensuous music with instrumental, vocal, electronic, and natural sounds. In addition to his work as a founding member of the Rome based, radical avant-garde group, Musica Electtronica Viva (MEV), Curran has composed for many large-scale outdoor events. This program includes excerpts from “Maritime Rites” a work that incorporates the words of John Cage mixed with a selection of fog horns; his “Waterworks” for computer controlled ships’ horns; and “Crystal Psalms” for six choruses, percussionists, and instrumental quartets. Curran also talks about his commissioned piece for the ROVA Saxophone Quartet. (from KPFA Folio) Part 1 of 2: Musi...
75. radiOM.org - The Music of Alvin Curran and MEV [5.068% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Music of Alvin Curran and MEV Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 132 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) A selection of recordings and live performances by Alvin Curran and the electronic improvisational group Musica Elettronica Viva (MEV). MEV was originally founded in Rome in 1966 by Curran, Richard Teitelbaum, Frederic Rzewski, Allan Bryant and others. It has since gone through several personnel changes and these later formations are sometimes referred to as MEV2. This program demonstrates the classic avant-garde, electro-acoustic music style that defined the MEV sound during the 1960s and early 70s. Using hand-built electronics and amplifying various household objects MEV concerts during this period were highly improvisational and occasionally quite loud. Anybody interested in the early electronic music of composers such as John Cage, David Tudor, and others should find these live concert recordings a fascinating window into those first days of ex...

Ode To Gravity: Pierre Boulez at Donaueschingen, 1973 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 54 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian interviews the French, avant-garde, composer and conductor, Pierre Boulez, following the world premiere performance of his revised (3rd version), “explosante-fixe,” at the Donaueschingen Music Festival on October 21, 1973. In this relatively brief interview Boulez offers his perspective on American composers such as Charles Ives, Henry Cowell, Steve Reich, and John Cage, all of whom he had at least heard of and generally respects, although he admits that his own approach to avant-garde orchestral and electro-acoustic music differs from that of his American counterparts. Boulez also discusses the, just presented, third version of his “explosante-fixe,” which is scored for flute, clarinet, trumpet, violin, viola, cello, harp, and electronics, and describes the type of preparations and rehearsals that were necessary for its performance. ...
77. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Charles Shere Returns to KPFA [5.068% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Charles Shere Returns to KPFA Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Specialists in New Music have long been associated with KPFA’s Music Department, be it John Rockwell, Alan Rich, Robert Erickson, Glen Glasow, or Charles Amirkhanian. But for intensity of production and richness of quality no term at KPFA was more productive than that of former Music Director Charles Shere who’s tenure at the station lasted from 1965 to 1967. At the time of this recording Shere was the Music & Art critic for the “Oakland Tribune”, a position he held until retiring in 1988. A distinguished composer as well, Mr. Shere returned to the scene of his fruitful years of service at KPFA and talked with his successor as Music Director, Charles Amirkhanian, about his memories of his time at the station as well as his current work as a music critic in Reagan’s America. (from KPFA Folio) Note: This interview begins in ...

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 ...

The concert began with composer and pianist Jon Jang performing an early piano solo version of his “Woman Shaman of Alishan” or as he refers to it here, “Woman Shaman of Ali Mountain.” This piece would later appear on his 1996 CD release “Two Flowers On A Stem” where it is orchestrated for a jazz ensemble. This is followed by Philip Glass’ own piano arrangement of a piece he originally scored for pipe organ entitled “Mad Rush,” and performed here by the composer. After an intermission the concert continues with a Barbara Monk Feldman’s “Duo for Piano and Percussion” with Julie Steinberg, violin and William Winant, percussion.

Other Minds Festival: OM 11, Panel Discussion 2 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 38 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Prior to the start of the first concert of OM 11, held on February 25, 2006, Charles Amirkhanian moderated this panel discussion with the featured composers and some of the performers of that night’s musical offerings. Maria De Alvear, who studied music theater with Mauricio Kagel, and is perhaps best known for her intricately fashioned evening long works, describes her “Gran Sol” which she was to perform with fellow singer Amelia Cuni and cellist Joan Jeanrenaud. Fred Frith and his former student and current musical partner Sudhu Tewari, then discuss how broken household appliances can be easily turned into musical instruments, as well as touching a upon some of the difference between performing improvised versus composed music. And Amirkhanian, whose sound collage tape piece “Son of Metropolis San Francisco” was also to be heard that evening,...
