He attended the Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music from 1929-32, and later studied composition and counterpoint in Boston with Nicolas Slonimsky, Walter Piston, and Roger Sessions (1933-36).

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.

Ode To Gravity: The Environmental Songs of Phyllis Addison Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian talks with composer Phyllis Addison, who introduces a selection of her “environmental songs”. Addison studied at Mills College where she received a BA in composition and environmental science and an MFA in electronic music and recording media.

In this program she presents a selection of commercially unavailable songs, composed using the first generation of digital samplers and synthesizers such as the Mirage and Roland JX-10. Her concerns about the environment inspire many of the lyrics and make these songs relevant today despite their distinct 1980s sound. Addison has since spearheaded a movement among musicians to release their music independent of any labels by making use of the Internet. Her album “Seven Gifts” is available on the W...
