90. 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...
