81. radiOM.org - The Politics and Music of Cornelius Cardew [0.285% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Politics and Music of Cornelius Cardew Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 mins Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded on January 25, 1975, Charles Amirkhanian interviews the British composer, pianist, and Socialist, Cornelius Cardew. Born in 1936, Cardew had a traditional music education, studying composition and piano at the Royal Academy of Music in London. In the late 1950’s he became interested in avant-garde and electronic music, working with Karlheinz Stockhausen, and composing a series of aleatoric pieces influenced by the ideas of John Cage and others. In the late 1960s and 70s Cardew’s interest in Socialist politics, the Chinese Revolution, and the teachings of Mao Zedong, led him to reevaluate the academic avant-garde, essentially rejecting it as elitist, and irrelevant to the struggles of the working class. He went on to be a founding member of both the Scratch Orchestra and the People’s Liberation Music, both of which were nonhierarchical music...
82. radiOM.org - An Interview and Performance by Dane Rudhyar, (July 29, 1956) [0.279% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Interview and Performance by Dane Rudhyar, (July 29, 1956) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 66 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: Tenney Estate Additional Media Files (click to view) In a recording made on July 29, 1956, Dane Rudhyar is interviewed for KPCC Radio in Pasadena, California. Rudhyar talks about his early history, his decision to move to the United States in 1916, his interest in Indian and “Oriental” music, psychology, painting, and poetry. While he describes his music as having dissonant elements, Rudhyar seeks to make a distinction between his compositions, which he states are attempts to be attuned to human psychology, and the more technical exercises in modernism of other avant-garde pianist composers. To illustrate his comments Rudhyar performs a number of selections from “Moments,” a collection of tone poems for the piano that were later revised and republished in the 1970s as his “Pentagrams.” These brief but poignant and very resonant works are perfectly bal...
83. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Three French Sound Poets [0.260% 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...
84. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 5, Concert 1: 10 “Magritte Man” by Errollyn Wallen [0.258% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 5, Concert 1: 10 “Magritte Man” by Errollyn Wallen Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 3 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. “Magritte Man” is a meditation on childhood days, imagination, and bowler-hatted men, and girls, in the clouds. The presentation of this work was made possible with the support of Jeanne & Howard Baumgarten. Musical Selections: Magritte Man (3:02) / Errollyn Wallen [U. S. premiere] Performers: Errollyn Wallen, piano and voice Genre: Art Songs...
85. radiOM.org - Holland in Art and Science Carillon Music, Bert Schierbeek, & Han Reiziger [0.248% Popularity: 0.00000]
Holland in Art and Science: Carillon Music, Bert Schierbeek, & Han Reiziger Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Interview and Music Recorded in 1974 by the Radio Nederland Transcription Service, a program about music and culture in the Netherlands. The program begins with a performance by, and interview with, Larry Weinstein, an American student at the Netherlands Carillon School in Amersfoort. Then, after a brief review of a book about how the theories of two 19th century American fringe scientists about the Earth being hollow and habitable on the inside influenced some of the stories of Edgar Allan Poe, the program continues with an interview with Bert Schierbeek. Poet and publisher, Schierbeek, discusses the inter-workings of his cooperative publishing house De Bezige Bij or The Busy Bee. The program concludes with an interview with Dutch radio producer, Han Reiziger, who was just preparing to work for four months at KPFA in Berkeley as part of an exchange program. Reiziger menti...
86. radiOM.org - Nicolas Slonimsky at the Berkeley Piano Club [0.245% Popularity: 0.00000]
Nicolas Slonimsky at the Berkeley Piano Club Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 129 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) In this lecture and demonstration, Nicolas Slonimsky covers topics such as polytonality, atonality, scales, the perils of introducing the music of Charles Ives and Edgar Varèse to the Hollywood Bowl audiences in 1933, polyrhythm, and The Grandmother Chord. He then recounts comments made about composers by their contemporary critics, (e.g., there are criticisms of Chopin, Wagner and Stravinsky). A review of his experiences with Performance Art follows and is not to be missed. Answers to questions on John Cage's 4'33", electronic music, John Coltrane, microtonal composition, American women composers, quarter tones, comments by Tchaikovsky on Brahms, comments on Toscanini and Leonard Bernstein, follow and conclude this whirlwind tour of this gifted individual's complex and extraordinary mind. Part 1 of 2: Musical Select...
87. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 5, Concert 1: 08 “Guru” by Errollyn Wallen [0.244% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 5, Concert 1: 08 “Guru” by Errollyn Wallen Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 6 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. A song to melt your heart, “Guru” is only gradually perceived as a satire on the promise held out by certain unscrupulous new age spiritual leaders. The presentation of this work was made possible with the support of Jeanne & Howard Baumgarten. Musical Selections: Guru (5:21) / Errollyn Wallen [U. S. premiere] Performers: Errollyn Wallen, piano and v...
88. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 5, Concert 1: 07 “What's Up Doc?” by Errollyn Wallen [0.228% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 5, Concert 1: 07 “What's Up Doc?” by Errollyn Wallen Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 3 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. Errollyn Wallen's first attempt at song writing bubbled up subconsciously in one hour into “What's Up Doc?” full of absurd lyrics which dissolve toward a social pathos of contemporary loneliness. The presentation of this work was made possible with the support of Jeanne & Howard Baumgarten. Musical Selections: What's Up Doc? (2:32) / Erroll...
89. radiOM.org - John Cage Considered: An Introduction [0.225% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage Considered: An Introduction Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 47 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) A tentative introduction and preliminary remarks about the music, aesthetics, and phenomenon of John Cage. Recorded in 1965 this program contains the comments of Charles Shere on the life and music of the most famous of American avant-garde composers. The program, (which relies on a 1964 New Yorker article about Cage, a catalogue of his works published by Peters Edition, and Cage’s own book of essays “Silence”, for its background information), starts with a description of Cage’s early education and career as a lecturer on modern art. Shere then goes on to play excerpts from a number of Cage’s early compositions in order to illustrate Cage’s evolution from a student of Schoenberg to a composer experimenting with new sounds and techniques. By 1951 Cage had begun to become interested in Zen Buddhism and the role of chance opera...
90. radiOM.org - Harvey Matusow and the International Carnival of Experimental Sounds [0.219% Popularity: 0.00000]
Harvey Matusow and the International Carnival of Experimental Sounds Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 111 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian talks to Harvey Matusow about the International Carnival of Experimental Sounds (ICES ‘72), an avant-garde music festival, based on the theme of myth, magic, madness and mysticism, that was held in August 1972 in London. Featuring 46 concerts in 14 days, including marathon performances in an refurbished railroad roundhouse, a music train to Edinburgh, films, happenings, and performances by avant-garde artists, dancers, and musicians from around the world, ICES ‘72 could be considered as a spiritual progenitor of such extravagances as Burning Man. That it was the brain child of Matusow, (with help from John LIfton and the editors of “Source Magazine”), is of little surprise as the man was part clown, part con man, and full time promoter of all things weird and wonderful. Once known as the “most hated man in America” for his role in ...
