72. radiOM.org - Fred Frith on Hans Reichel [0.674% Popularity: 0.00000]
Fred Frith on Hans Reichel Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 6 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA In this program, recorded in 1987, Fred Frith joins Charles Amirkhanian in a discussion about Hans Reichel, a maker of guitars, musician, improviser, and musical collaborator. Frith who has known Reichel for more than fifteen years and was scheduled to perform with him later that week describes Reichel’s work as a master craftsman building uniquely sounding instruments. As a performer, Reichel uses a Japanese technique, plucking the strings with one hand and stopping them with the other. Reichel is from Wueppertal, near Dusseldorf, where many German free music (without a score) improvisers originated. Frith, who likes free music but who often composes more structured pieces, offers his opinions on the noise/free music/improv scene. The segment ends with a selection from Frith's "Technology of Tears", a piece written for dance. Musical Selections: [Excerpt from guitar piece] / Hans Reichel --...

Improv:21: John Lindberg: Bass Walk View Item Type: Video Duration: 69 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: ROVA Derk Richardson interviews composer and bassist John Lindberg, recorded at the Red Poppy Art House in San Francisco on November 14, 2009, as part of the ROVA:Arts Improv 21 series of informances. John Lindberg is a New York based musician who was in the Bay Area on a temporary teaching stint at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). This informal discussion begins with Lindberg performing “Fiddlesticks,” a work that he has been part of his solo, double bass repertoire for about 20 years. Lindberg then describes the thought process, or rather lack of one, that is the hallmark of his performance practice. According to Lindberg, he tries to be in a state beyond thought when playing, or more precisely, when he is being played by the music. It has been his experience that thinking about what you are playing presents an extra layer of intentionality that can often get in the way o...

Moran begins the discussion with a description of how his latest work was inspired by an old LP about African American slang and his own interest in contemporary jazz slang. Andriessen then introduces his works with the admission that he had always had problems writing for classically trained singers and string players, feeling that they were too romantic for his type of music. A difficulty that was only solved when he met the two Italian musicians featured in this concert. Finally, Kyle Gann talks about his ...

She then sits down with Richardson to discusses her conceptual compositions for plants, her solo work on koto, and her methods of improvisation. She describes some of her earlier works that involved using insects, spiders, bees, and birds, and how the difficulty, not to mention the questionable legality, of touring with tarantulas led her to work with the more manageable plants.

78. radiOM.org - Henry Kaiser interviews Derek Bailey (Dec. 7, 1989) [0.531% Popularity: 0.00000]
Henry Kaiser interviews Derek Bailey (Dec. 7, 1989) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 122 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: C Amirkhanian From a program recorded on December 7, 1989, Henry Kaiser interviews fellow avant-garde jazz guitarist Derek Bailey. Bailey is an English guitarist who started out as a rather conventional commercial session player, but in the early 1960s he met Gavin Bryars and other experimental avant-garde musicians and soon forged his own unique style of guitar playing. His distinctive playing typically features unusual notes and timbres, often in unique juxtaposition to each other, as well as different collections of intervals not normally emphasized by more mainstream musicians. Kaiser, a talented guitarist himself, interrogates Bailey about his various techniques, getting into the details of spacing, fingering, and the interplay between consciousness intention and free improvisation, posing the question; does one think what to play, or think about what you...
