81. - Pierre Boulez on Music, 1958 [5.895% Popularity: 0.00000]
Pierre Boulez on Music, 1958 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 49 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: Alan Rich In an program recorded in March of 1958, the French composer Pierre Boulez is interviewed by Robert Erickson and a panel of distinguished and learned musicologists and composers. Sounding at times like a doctoral dissertation defense, the young Frenchman attempts to clarify the role, or lack there of, of development and structure in the avant-garde music being produced by a new wave of European composers such as himself, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and others. Boulez’s comments about music without repetition, climax, or symmetry seem to confound Andrew Imbrie, Robert Erickson, Arnold Elston, and Jack Holloway most of whom represent the traditional, academic ideal of music as a development of themes and motifs. Boulez, whose English while understandable is not fully fluent, uses such analogies as the stream-of-conciseness writing style of James Joyce to highlight his concept of music as a ...

85. - John Cage in Conversation with Morton Feldman, Radio Happening 4 of 5 [1.540% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage in Conversation with Morton Feldman, Radio Happening 4 of 5 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 44 min Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: WBAI John Cage and Morton Feldman recorded four open-ended conversations at the studios of radio station WBAI in New York. These meetings spanned six months between July 1966 and January 1967, and were produced as five "Radio Happenings". Both men were at transitional points in their music. Cage had completed “Variations V” in 1965 and “Variations VI” and “Variations VII” in 1966, and would publish "A Year from Monday" in 1967. Most of Feldman's important work was yet to come. These conversations between two old friends, relaxed, smoking, and throwing out ideas, are full of laughter and long ponderous silences. They form an incredible historical record of their concerns and preoccupation with making music, art, society, and politics of the moment. In 1993 these conversations were transcribed and published as "Radio Happenings I-V" by Edition MusikText...
