71. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music of Denys Bouliane [1.988% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music of Denys Bouliane Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 129 min Event Type: Interview and Music In an interview recorded in June of 1987, Charles Amirkhanian visits composer Denys Bouliane at his home in Cologne, Germany. Bouliane was born in 1955 in Quebec, Canada, but moved to Germany to study with György Ligeti. Bouliane is a former rock guitarist who became interested in classical music when the father of a friend gave him a recording by Stravinsky, after which he quickly decided to pursue a career as a composer, although he didn’t even know how to read music. After an initial rejection he eventually got accepted to study music at Laval University and is currently a Professor of Composition at McGill University. His carefully crafted scores reveal the influence of Charles Ives, Conlon Nancarrow, and Ligeti, in a style which music critic Peter Niklas Wilson has called Magic Realism, the musical equivalent of the literature style of Jorge Luis Borges. In this interview, Boul...

New Music Seance: 2007: Concert No. 2, The Immovable Do Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 54 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) Summoning the specters of musical forbears, and channeling the spirits of their successors, the 2007 New Music Seance Concerts featured five hours of hypnotic solo piano music performed by Sarah Cahill, or on the eerily disembodied Yamaha Disklavier, with additional spirit raising interludes by the Kate Stenberg and Eva-Maria Zimmerman violin-piano duo. The concerts were held in the intimate, candle lit setting of the historic Arts & Crafts styled Swedenborgian Church in San Francisco. The second concert entitled “The Immovable Do”, includes the title piece by Percy Grainger, as well as works by Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Frank Martin, Evan Ziporyn, David Mahler, Carl Stone, and James Cleghorn.

Information Transmission, Modulation and Noise: Conglomerate Radio Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 73 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) In this broadcast of “Information Transmission, Modulation and Noise”, host Richard Friedman presents an interesting and eclectic blend of music, sound poetry, and sundry in-studio shenanigans. Recorded on October 26, 1970, this was a late night, free form program devoted to giving succor to insomniacs, hope to the soon to be hung-over, and pleasure to the persistent listener. This particular production profiles the progress made by Friedman and his partners in post-modern programing, Charles Amirkhanian and Anthony Gnazzo, as they place their fingers on the pulse of something not yet fully formed, and declare “It’s Alive”. Elements that make up this entertaining romp through a landscape of musical genres, include samples of folk music from around the world, Swedish sound-poet Åke Hodell’s text-sound composition “Whe...

Morning Concert: An Hurrian Cult Song from Ancient Ugarit Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 27 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian interviews Anne Draffkorn Kilmer, Professor of Assyriology at the University of California at Berkeley, about an LP ”Sounds from silence; Recent discoveries in ancient Near Eastern music” which documents a previously unknown musical composition dating from around 1400 BC. This ancient fertility hymn from Ugarit caused an international sensation when modern research made available for the first time, the knowledge necessary for the translation of ancient clay tablets which served as a key to various musical scores of the ancient Near East. The record was released by Bit Enki Records in Berkeley, CA, and contains one of the earliest notated songs in the world, performed by Richard Crocker, on a lyre built to ancient specifications by Robert R. Brown. Kilmer talks about the archaeological discoveries that led to the decipherment of this ancien...

Other Minds Festival: OM 14: Concert 3 View Item Type: Video Duration: 128 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) The third and final concert of OM 14 was held on March 7, 2009. After brief introductions and announcements, the concert begins with: Spiral Xi: Mother and Child Each of Chinary Ung's “Spiral” pieces focuses on a single idea that is re-imagined and re-contextualized over the course of the work. This work investigates the notion of musicality as something beyond instrumental practice. Rather, the use of vocal sounds (singing, humming, chanting, and whistling) is equally as important as are the variety of string techniques that form the rich vocabulary of Ung’s string writing. The balance between voice and viola shifts throughout the work, and the combination of these two dimensions produces a world that is more than the sum of its parts. - Adam Greene Listening to Lu Tzu-Hsün Play the Ch’in on a Moonlit Night It turns out that Harry Partch’s Adapte...

Different tuning systems were discussed with Schneider and Harrison demonstrating two of them while also making the prediction that future composers will be quite comfortable working with a variety of tunings. Ung then describes his interest in imperfection and Mello describes how he mixes Brazilian pop melodies with more avant-garde compositional devices such as chance operations and various vocal techniques, including singing backwards.

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...
