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.

77. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Distel Bitzos [3.561% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Distel Bitzos Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 64 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA While in Bern, Switzerland in the Summer of 1972, Charles Amirkhanian and his wife Carol Law, interviewed two avant-garde artists who were then working in the area of visual art and sound poetry. Born in 1942, Herbert Distel, had already produced a number of iconic works, including a large Styrofoam egg, which he famously photographed as it floated in a large body of water, as well as his mini museum, a cabinet featuring 500 tiny installations by some of the world’s greatest living artists. Never one to limit himself to one school of art or “alphabet” of ideas, Distel describes the evolution of these two projects, as well as his forays into text-sound composition, promotion of a poorly trained street chanteuse, and his desire to eventually get into film making. One of his sound compositions, “We Have a Problem,” a lengthy tape work that juxtaposes George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in...
78. radiOM.org - Speaking of Music David Lang [3.491% Popularity: 0.00000]
Speaking of Music: David Lang Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 125 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer David Lang, on February 15, 1990, as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series. Lang plays recordings of two of his orchestral works, including the world premier performance of his “Eating Live Monkeys”. Lang talks about some of the difficulties of writing new music for orchestras, including the typical lack of rehearsal time. Lang also describes his compositional techniques and his somewhat heretical opinion that notes are not the most significant part of his works. A self-described post-ugly music composer Lang’s compositions try to go beyond the dissonance that marked much of 20th century music, while still salvaging their ability to challenge both the listener and performer. In addition to his composing Lang is also one of the founders of the New York based Bang on a Can Festival, one of the premiere American...

80. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 8, Concert 2: 03 “Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano” by Lou Harrison [3.483% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 8, Concert 2: 03 “Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano” by Lou Harrison Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 34 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) My only piano trio was commissioned in 1989 by the Mirecourt Trio. The third movement of the work is a little suite of solos for the three musicians. They are again united in the finale. With the exception of the one chromatic movement which is dedicated to the memory of Virgil Thomson, all of the remaining movements are modal in character, and the entire work is melodic. This is the first work that I composed after triple-bypass heart surgery, and it was interrupted by a major earthquake and the death of my good friend and mentor Virgil Thomson; thus it has a complex history. The premiere performance took place with the Mirecourt Trio at the Menil Museum in Houston in 1990.
