71. radiOM.org - The Music of Lou Harrison (August 1968) [0.315% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Music of Lou Harrison (August 1968) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 218 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Recorded in August of 1968 this is a wonderful four part program in which American composer Lou Harrison presents a selection of his varied works, in roughly chronological order. The program begins with Harrison providing a brief biographical sketch of his life in which he describes being born in Oregon and how he then moved with his family to Northern California, and his subsequent self-identification as a San Francisco Bay Area composer. The rest of the first half of the program is then dedicated to presenting many of his earlier, Mission Period compositions, (a term meant to reflect his adopted home in California), including some of his groundbreaking percussion ensemble pieces such as his “Suite for Percussion” and “Labyrinth No. 3.” In the third hour of this program the emphasis switches to his longer works written for larg...
72. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 5, Concert 1: 06 “Favorite Things” arranged by Errollyn Wallen [0.304% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 5, Concert 1: 06 “Favorite Things” arranged by Errollyn Wallen Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 5 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds The music of composer Errollyn Wallen spans numerous styles from avant-garde classical to jazz song writing. She has composed extensively for chamber media, including piano solo and duet, string quartet and various mixed ensembles, often with voice. In between her work on classical composition, Wallen began in 1988 writing pop/jazz songs for a change of pace. The results are electrifying, as she moves freely among influences ranging from Laurie Anderson to Gospel, Bill Evans, Blues, Schubert, and Ives. "More light, more light..." is the inscription placed at the head of “Favorite Things” as it encapsulates the spirit of the intention here, to observe space and stillness. Although “Favorite Things” is full of movement and whimsy at certain points, it is essentially a reflective piece written to celebrate the wonderful playing of ...

New Music America: 1987: Concert No. 9 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 33 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Joseph Franklin Additional Media Files (click to view) The 1987 New Music America Festival was held in Philadelphia during the first two weeks in October. Produced by the local ensemble Relâche, this 10 day extravaganza of adventurous musical programing featured over 20 concerts, lectures, and sound installations. A wide range of sonic delights were offered, ranging from 20th century classical works for instrumental ensemble, to examples of experimental electronic wizardry, to incomparable improvisational jazz extravaganza’s, all performed by a bevy of talented musicians and composers. The ninth concert of the Festival featured english composer/performer Fast Forward, whose heavily rhythmic soundscapes are created from a variety of metal and sonic objects. The Peter Zummo Orchestra perform four selections from Zummo’s suite, “Six Songs”; each part with its own mood and iconic element. Th...
74. radiOM.org - That Morning Thing, an opera by Robert Ashley [0.281% Popularity: 0.00000]
That Morning Thing, an opera by Robert Ashley Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 83 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA A live recording of the complete experimental opera, “That Morning Thing” by Robert Ashley, possibly from the Dec. 8, 1969 performance at Mills College. Composed in 1967 this was Ashley’s second foray into the realm of avant-garde musical theater, and is a work for five principal voices, eight dancers, women's chorus and tape. The mainstream media’s reaction, as well as that of some in the audience, was notably mixed, however rather than being a commentary on the ultimate quality of the work it seems to be more an indication of the audience’s unfamiliarity with Ashley’s trademark mix of electronic and prerecorded sounds with the more traditional elements of opera. Certainly for anybody interested in avant-garde theater in general or Robert Ashley specifically, this historic recording of one of his earliest and perhaps lesser known works should be of immense interest and value...
75. radiOM.org - A Celebration of Non-Commercial Radio [0.278% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Celebration of Non-Commercial Radio Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 182 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) This live broadcast from the then, brand new, KPFA building at 1929 Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Berkeley, California, aired nationally on NPR. It features the world premiere of Lou Harrison’s “Homage to Pacifica” (commissioned by the Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation), a six movement composition for narrator, soloists, mixed chorus, and Javanese gamelan ensemble. Also heard is a rare recording made in 1949, just after KPFA went on the air, in which Henry Cowell performed a number of his works on the KPFA grand piano. This program continues with Berkeley composer Gary Noland’s spectacular ragtime composition, “Grand Rag Brillante”, which is virtually impossible to be played by humans. Here it is heard played on KPFA’s Yamaha Disklavier, a type of modern player piano. The program concludes with the great, North Indian, virtuosi...
76. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 5, Concert 1: 03 “Louis' Loops” by Errollyn Wallen [0.225% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 5, Concert 1: 03 “Louis' Loops” by Errollyn Wallen Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 5 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds The music of composer Errollyn Wallen spans numerous styles from avant-garde classical to jazz song writing. She has composed extensively for chamber media, including piano solo and duet, string quartet and various mixed ensembles, often with voice. In between her work on classical composition, Wallen began in 1988 writing pop/jazz songs for a change of pace. The results are electrifying, as she moves freely among influences ranging from Laurie Anderson to Gospel, Bill Evans, Blues, Schubert, and Ives. According to Wallen: “This piece is dedicated to my young grandson, Louis Wallen. I was inspired by watching him at play, as well as by seeing Margaret Leng Tan perform in New York last autumn and by the happy afternoon we spent in her Brooklyn home discussing the forthcoming piece over toy pianos and pecan pie. Listening to Margaret play, I ...
77. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Rigid Foxhole [r i g i d f o x h o l e] [0.198% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Rigid Foxhole [r i g i d f o x h o l e] Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 61 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) This incurably bizarre program, somewhat reminiscent of John Cage's “Indeterminacy”, begins with "I had a hankering to shoot pins at Bartok." It features a mix of prerecorded electronic and radio drama sound sources mixed with tape delay under readings of experimental texts by Charles Amirkhanian read by Carol Law, Anthony J. Gnazzo and Amirkhanian himself. Performed live in the KPFA studios, the writing is influenced by William S. Burroughs, Clark Coolidge, and Fluxus happenings artists Dick Higgins, Alison Knowles and Allan Kaprow. The program builds to a searing intensity as Gnazzo moves on to recite records for eating, spitting and consumption by "trenchermen" like Bozo Miller of Oakland, California, while dinner is cooked by Law, Gnazzo, Amirkhanian and Richard Friedman, as heard in an ambient kitchen recording in th...
78. radiOM.org - Charles Amirkhanian: Oratora Konkurso Rezulto (Portrait of Lou Harrison, 1970) [0.186% Popularity: 0.00000]
Charles Amirkhanian: Oratora Konkurso Rezulto (Portrait of Lou Harrison, 1970) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 15 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: C Amirkhanian Additional Media Files (click to view) An original text-sound composition by Charles Amirkhanian, produced at the KPFA studios and incorporating the sounds of the voice of Lou Harrison, recorded in his home in Aptos, CA, by KPFA Chief Engineer George Craig. Amirkhanian composed a cut-up text in Esperanto, a favorite language of Harrison's. Many of the phrases were taken from a contemporary newspaper written in that international language. Also intruding from time to time are ambient sounds of Mr. Harrison's household. The original monaural field recordings were mixed into a four-track master that was premiered on the first-ever four-channel broadcast, produced by two stations simultaneously: KPFA (Berkeley) and KSAN (San Francisco). This is an early iteration of Amirkhanian's experiments with the spoken word as material for tape...

Other Minds Festival: OM 21: Panel Discussion & Concert 1 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 176 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) Other Minds’ 21st Festival of New Music took place at San Francisco’s SFJAZZ Center over the course of two evenings and one afternoon during March 4-6, 2016.

80. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Three French Sound Poets [0.130% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Three French Sound Poets Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 99 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) François Dufrêne, Henri Chopin & Bernard Heidsieck were all pioneers in the field of sound poetry. Working in Paris in the mid 1950s, they developed extraordinary vocal sounds which were mixed electronically to produce poems which sounded rather than meant. Chopin moved to England where he continued to publish a yearly periodical of concrete poetry called “OU.” Dufrene and Heidsieck remained in Paris where they continued to record their works. In this program all three give their views on the art of sound poetry, which, although well known abroad, has attracted little attention in the United States. The program begins with an interview with Henri Chopin and his family, recorded by Charles Amirkhanian and Carol Law at Chopin’s home in Ingatestone, Essex, on April 3, 1972. Chopin’s English wife, Jean, assists in translating from F...
