Ode To Gravity: Do Fraig Amors, etc... Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 46 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Another excellent example of an early Ode to Gravity program produced by Charles Amirkhanian. This time it is an interesting mix of music and spoken word, ranging from Medieval Germanic choral music, avant-garde orchestral works, American popular music from the 1920s or 1930s, canary’s chirping, spell casting, bowling advice, and other assorted sounds. Inventive, experimental, and always amusing this Ode to Gravity program really highlights the verbal and musical creativity of Amirkhanian and the artistic environment that was Berkeley California in the early 1970s. Musical Selections: Do Fraig Amors / Oswald von Wolkenstein -- [unidentified piece] / Carlos Surinach -- We can’t sleep in the movies, anymore -- Symphony No. 4 [excerpt] (1953) / Carlos Chávez -- [a mix of spoken word and music] (1970) Genres: Orchestral Music ; 20th Century Classical Subject: 20th century classical ; Ca...

96. radiOM.org - Labyrinth No. 3 by Lou Harrison (August 26, 1967) [5.084% Popularity: 0.00000]
Labyrinth No. 3 by Lou Harrison (August 26, 1967) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 19 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded at the Cabrillo Music Festival in Aptos, CA, on August 26, 1967 this is Lou Harrison’s “Labyrinth No. 3,” for percussion ensemble. Originally scored for 11 percussionists it is possible that this particular performance was arranged for a differently sized ensemble. Regardless, this delightful work is perhaps one of the best examples of the many contemporary classical compositions for percussion orchestra that were created by young modern composers such a Colin McPhee and John Cage during the first half of the 20th century. Listening to this performance one can easily detect the influence of the gamelan music of Indonesia that McPhee helped introduced to Western audiences, and which Harrison later went on to champion. The performance here, under the direction of Gerhard Samuel, is presumably by members of the Cabrillo Festival orchestra and the recording is of qui...
