The orchestra was composed of San Francisco Easy Bay High School students, and was conducted by Robert Hughes.

Born in nearby Menlo Park in 1897, Cowell began his musical career as a concert pianist, and is perhaps best known for pioneering such “ultramodern” performance techniques as “tone clusters,” in which the arms are used to play a number of notes simultaneously, and the direct manipulation of the strings of the piano, in a manner that presaged John Cage’s works for prepared piano. Yet Cowell’s greatest contribution to avant-garde music came with his publication of the journal “New Music Quarterly” and its associated recordings. First issued in 1927, and edited by Cowell until 1936 this journal was where many works, by what are now recognized as the greatest 20th century American ...

Improv:21: The Systemic Language of Music & the Spirituality of Art: An Informance with Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith View Item Type: Video Duration: 97 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: ROVA Additional Media Files (click to view) The intersection between abstract art and improvised music is explored by composer, musician, and educator, Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith, in this program recorded on March 12, 2007, and produced by ROVA: Arts as part of their Improv 21 series of interview/performances with gifted composers specializing in various forms of improvisation.

Smith demonstrates how a series of intricate abstract drawings can be interpreted by individual instrumentalists in increasing complex ways. This form of graphic notation, which he used for his CD “'Luminous Axis”, encourages the musicians to seek their own meaning fro...
76. radiOM.org - Pacific Sirens by Robert Erickson [0.091% Popularity: 0.00000]
Pacific Sirens by Robert Erickson Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 14 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA “Pacific Sirens” by Robert Erickson, performed by the University of California at San Diego Players in June of 1969. The work is an aleatoric electro-acoustic composition scored for flute, clarinets, horn, trumpet, trombone, percussion, viola, violoncello, double bass, and tape. Beginning with electronically altered wind and surf sounds from the Pacific coast, the work gradually develops as groups of instruments introduce long, sustaining, and overlapping pitches that flawlessly match the windswept beach recordings. Occasionally instruments make more pronounced solo excursions that grab one’s attention, similar to the way the sound of sea gull may temporarily lift one’s gaze from the rolling breakers. Calm and meditative, without ever becoming boring, this subtle work of restrained playing and masterful use of ambient sounds and electronic wizardry is indeed a siren’s call to a more idyl...
