81. radiOM.org - Improv:21 Chris Brown & Tim Perkis - Machines and Others [0.434% Popularity: 0.00000]
Improv:21: Chris Brown & Tim Perkis - Machines and Others View Item Type: Video Duration: 83 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: ROVA Recorded on April 9, 2007 at the San Francisco Performance Library, Derk Richardson engages Chris Brown and Tim Perkis in a discussion, before a live audience, about the processes and challenges of improvising electronic music. Both early pioneers of computer music, Brown and Perkis have been performing improvised electronic and electro-acoustic music since the late 1970s, and at various times have performed in such groups as the League of Automatic Music Composers, The Hub, Rova:Orkestrova, and The Natto Quartet. Both Perkis, a professional computer programer, and Chris Brown, a pianist and composer, describe how their initial interest in computer music came out of their early experiences with analog synthesizers, when people often built their own gear in the tradition of Harry Partch. From these humble beginnings they then relate how they began experime...

85. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Butch Morris [0.334% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Butch Morris Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 57 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA In program recorded in December of 1988, Charles Amirkhanian talks with musician, arranger, improviser, and composer, Butch Morris about his system of "conduction" used for developing a language for improvisers, as well as some of his worldly influences. A Vietnam War veteran and a regular on the jazz scene during the 1970s and 80s, Morris eventually became dissatisfied with what passed for free improvisation, with it’s pattern of theme and solos, yet was unwilling to be restrained by a written score. Therefore taking a cue from such band leaders as Sun Ra, Morris developed a system of hand gestures that he could employ to guide his fellow musicians during their improvised performances. This system of conduction allowed him to shape the music while still retaining a certain degree of spontaneity and individual interpretation. In addition to the discussion the program also inclu...
