81. radiOM.org - John Dinwiddie Speaks Out [0.291% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Dinwiddie Speaks Out Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA In a rather informal recording made in the studios of KPFA in July of 1972, local Bay Area composer and pianist, John Dinwiddie, ruminates about the then current state of New Music and the apparent tension between the artistic vanguard and their audiences. Dinwiddie allows us to listen in to the debate that rages nightly within his own mind about the evolution of music and the impact that has had on the general concert-going public. According to Dinwiddie, the gap in appreciation and understanding between the avant-garde composer and the concert hall audience is due, in part, to the economic restraints in presenting such concerts, which are far more demanding than that of the visual arts. Concerts require more specialized, and thus more expensive, venues, and the cooperation of often many musicians, whereas pictures or photographs just need to be hung on any wall in order fo...
82. 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...
83. 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...
84. 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...

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...

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.

87. 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...
88. 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 ...
89. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Charlotte Moorman & David Tudor [0.206% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Charlotte Moorman & David Tudor Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 73 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Avant-garde cellist Charlotte Moorman and pianist David Tudor play a number of pieces by La Monte Young, Morton Feldman, Ornette Coleman, Earle Brown, Philip Corner, & John Cage. The Corner piece consists largely of detailed performance notes that are followed exactly, much to the amusement of the audience. While Moorman and Tudor might be best known for their collaborations with Nam June Paik and John Cage, respectively, they are both very talented musicians in their own right and their partnership during this program is suitably impressive. Musical Selections: Composition 1960 No. 13 (1960) / La Monte Young -- Projection I (1950) / Morton Feldman -- City Minds and Country Hearts / Ornette Coleman -- Music for Cello and Piano (1954-55) / Earle Brown -- Solo With / Philip Corner -- 34' 46.776'' for a Pianist (1954) / John Cage -- 26' 1.1499'' for a String Player (1953"5) /...

Hannibal Lokumbe), and his Sunrise Orchestra, which included bassist Cecil McBee, pianist, Ron Burton, drummer Alan Nelson, and special guest, saxophonist David Murray. While not necessa...
