Joining moderator Charles Amirkhanian on stage were, Gyan Riley, who is known for his guitar playing as well as composing, minimalist composer Tom Johnson, and violinist, composer, and indy rock personality Carla Kihlstedt. Johnson describes his fascination with minimal music, which for him means works with a limited number of notes, a single main idea, and often a mathematically based progression. Unlike the elegant simplicity of Johnson, Kihlstedt describes her composing style as “messy,” typically starting with a wide variety of ideas that are examined, aligned, and developed in a manner that she describes as ...

83. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity The Environmental Songs of Phyllis Addison [1.500% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: The Environmental Songs of Phyllis Addison Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian talks with composer Phyllis Addison, who introduces a selection of her “environmental songs”. Addison studied at Mills College where she received a BA in composition and environmental science and an MFA in electronic music and recording media. Her background as a classical pianist and a rock keyboardist and singer inform her own pieces. In this program she presents a selection of commercially unavailable songs, composed using the first generation of digital samplers and synthesizers such as the Mirage and Roland JX-10. Her concerns about the environment inspire many of the lyrics and make these songs relevant today despite their distinct 1980s sound. Addison has since spearheaded a movement among musicians to release their music independent of any labels by making use of the Internet. Her album “Seven Gifts” is available on the W...

87. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Conlon Nancarrow, Studies for Player Piano [1.347% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Conlon Nancarrow, Studies for Player Piano Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 78 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) From a program recorded in 1974, Charles Amirkhanian introduces recent compositions by this American composer, who since 1947 developed a unique body of complex pieces, all for player piano. Nancarrow was able to punch carefully calculated holes in player piano rolls and make the instrument perform inhumanly difficult figures. His concerns with rhythm and sonority are more advanced than almost any in the world, yet his music makes an immediate impression even to those who don’t normally like avant-garde music. This is music utterly new to our ears, by an unrecognized genius of 20th Century composition. Nancarrow resided in Mexico City since the 1940s. His music has been choreographed by Merce Cunningham. In this program you will hear a selection of recordings of his studies for player piano. (from KPFA Folio) M...
88. radiOM.org - Grand Canyon Sweet by Chip Weitzner (a.k.a. The Felicity Facility) [1.346% Popularity: 0.00000]
Grand Canyon Sweet by Chip Weitzner (a.k.a. The Felicity Facility) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 30 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Chip Weitzner was a self-proclaimed hippy composer who owned an organ and recorded hypnotic electro-acoustic pieces in his Berkeley, California studio. He typically referred to his music as work from "The Felicity Facility." In this 1972 composition for electronic organ, “Grand Canyon Sweet,” the relatively unknown composer memorializes the Black Mesa area of the United States that was, according to the composer, under siege and threatened by the Energy Industry and local power structures. The Mesa, which is near the Grand Canyon was part of a vast land considered holy by many Native American tribes that was controversially strip-mined during the 1960s and 70s. Musical Selections: Grand Canyon Sweet, for electronic organ (1972) (29:42) / Chip Weitzner Performers: Chip Weitzner, electronic organ Genre: Electro-Acoustic / Electronic Subject: Electronic orga...
89. radiOM.org - Stereo Radio by Anthony Gnazzo [1.344% Popularity: 0.00000]
Stereo Radio by Anthony Gnazzo Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 19 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) “Stereo Radio” is another inventive experimental composition by one of the early wizards of the electronic music studio, Anthony Gnazzo. Ever playful and energetic Gnazzo was well known to KPFA listeners in the 1960s and 70s for his often irreverent yet always entertaining works that explored all the conceivable possibilities offered up by early electronics, new aleatoric compositional techniques, tape manipulation, with the occasional kitchen sink occasionally thrown in for good measure. In this work, Anthony Gnazzo invited ten composers to contribute three minute segments of recordings to be used in a stereo mix. Each of the five separate movements of this work present two of those donated tracks mixed with one another, creating a juxtaposition of highly varied sonic events and melodies. Electronic cow-like mooing sounds are mixed with choral singing...

Other Minds Festival: OM 11, Blitzstein Centenary Celebration Program, part 2, Songs from “The Cradle Will Rock” Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 17 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Marc Blitzstein's best known composition is his 1936 musical “The Cradle Will Rock”. It is set in Steeltown, USA, and has a cast of characters consisting of "types" rather than individuals, all with suitable names to match, such as Larry Foreman, Dauber the painter, and Mister Mister, the owner of the steel mill. The words as well as the music are by Blitzstein. This program opens with Blitzstein's most famous song, “Nickel Under the Foot”, for which the audience will need to know that the terms "put and take" refer to a form of high-risk gambling on the stock market. “Joe Worker” is a wake-up call for laborers to organize. The inspired imagery of “The Cradle Will Rock” juxtaposes the rich exploiters, shielded from all care in a cradle high up in a tree, with the workers racing around at ground level do...
