91. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 4: DD [0.163% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 4: DD Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA Stanley Lunetta, editor of the avant-garde music periodical “Source,” invited the listening audience to participate at home as part of KPFA’s groundbreaking, interactive, participatory, Radio Event series. Using a graphic score and list of instructions published in the December 1969 KPFA Folio, or program guide, audience members were encouraged to listen to various programs on KPFA while altering the settings on their radios. The listeners were requested to record the sonic results and to then bring the tapes to the station for eventual broadcast during this Radio Event program. Suggested activities included, turning the radio on and off, moving from AM to FM, adjusting the treble and bass controls, changing stations, etc... It seems that most listeners chose to record KPFA programs featuring electronic music, perhaps inspired by Lunetta’s own regular KPFA program, also called “...

New Music America: 1981: Concert 4, (June 10, 1981) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 96 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA In 1981 the New Music America Festival came to San Francisco for a week full of concerts, sound installations, and multi-media performances. The fourth concert of the Festival, held on June 10, 1981, included works by Laurie Spiegel, Peter Gena, and George Lewis, as well as a live improvisation by LaDonna Smith and Davey Williams, and two musical performance art pieces by conceptual artist Jim Pomeroy. The concert began with two works by Laurie Spiegel, identified in the program as “The Unquestioned Answer” and “A History of Music in One Movement,” which had been previously performed on the computer but were now arranged for solo performers of the harp and piano, respectively. These were followed by an unidentified computer music piece, presented by the composer herself. Violinist and violist LaDonna Smith and guitarist Davey Williams then presented two distinctly avant...

Other Minds Festival: OM 19: Panel Discussion and Concert 1 (Feb. 28, 2014) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 138 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds The first concert of the 19th Other Minds Festival of New Music (OM 19) was held on February 28, 2014 in the newly inaugurated SFJazz Center in San Francisco. With a bit of the old, the new, and the old made new again, the concert included three eclectic compositions by composer Mark Applebaum: one featuring synchronized hand gestures combined with electronically processed vocalizations, another aleatoric piece for instrumental ensemble and projected graphic score, and an installation that was part sound sculpture and part unique electronic instrument called the Mouseketier. These amazing electro-acoustic pieces were followed by two works by the oft overlooked composer of new music, Joseph Byrd. Composed in the early 1960s, “Water Music” and “Animals” explore the potential of percussion music, be it with traditional i...
94. radiOM.org - Other Minds Presents Henry Cowell: The Whole World of Music, Concert Two [0.129% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Presents: Henry Cowell: The Whole World of Music, Concert Two Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 157 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds On November 13, 2009, at the Presidio Chapel in San Francisco, CA, Other Minds presented the second of two concerts dedicated to the music of Henry Cowell. Born in Menlo Park in 1897, Cowell began his musical career as a concert pianist, and is perhaps best known for pioneering such “ultramodern” performance techniques as “tone clusters,” in which the arms are used to play a number of notes simultaneously, and the direct manipulation of the strings of the piano, in a manner that presaged John Cage’s works for prepared piano. Yet Cowell’s greatest contribution to avant-garde music came with his publication of the journal “New Music Quarterly” and its associated recordings. First issued in 1927, and edited by Cowell until 1936 this journal was where many works, by what are now recognized as the greatest 20th century Ameri...

This work combines strictly choreographed movements by the two, often involving sight gags of one type or another, mixed with electronic and new wave rock music. The intermission features includes a profile of Charles Ives, a talk with John Cage about...

A wide range of sonic delights were offered, ranging from 20th century classical works for instrumental ensemble, to examples of experimental electronic wizardry, to incomparable improvisational jazz extravaganza’s, all performed by a bevy of talented musicians and composers. This 10 day feast of avant-garde exceptionalism began with this program, recorded at the Port of History Museum on October 2, 1987, and generously provided to Other Minds by Joseph Franklin who directed the 1987 New Music America festival, and Werner Strobel who digitized the original tape recordings. The evening...

Other Minds Presents: A Secret Rose by Rhys Chatham Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 84 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Other Minds presents a live recording of Rhys Chatham’s “A Secret Rose,” performed at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, CA. on November 17, 2013. This performance features a large ensemble of electric guitarists, mostly from Northern California but also including some from around the United States as well as the United Kingdom, Italy, Argentina and the Netherlands. In 1977, composer Rhys Chatham, first artistic director of famed New York multi-disciplinary art space The Kitchen, was working with a group of visiting graduate students from Mills College. Among them was Peter Gordon who was shocked to learn that at 25 years old and in the thick of a musical revolution Chatham had never been to a rock concert. Chatham considered himself a hardcore minimalist composer, a protégé of first-wave New York minimalists such as La Monte Young, Philip Glass, and Steve Reich....

Other Minds Festival: OM 22: Concert 1, Pacific Rim Centennials Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 122 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) The 22nd Other Minds Festival was a special tribute to one of the most gifted and inspiring figures in the history of American classical music, Lou Harrison. In 2017 we celebrate his 100th birth anniversary with two very special concerts at the Mission Dolores Basilica in San Francisco. The first concert, Pacific Rim Centennials, was held on February 18th and paid tribute not just to Lou Harrison but to a fellow centenarian, Korean composer Isang Yun. Yun and Harrison knew and respected each other very much. Their work was previously celebrated together in 1987 on the occasion of their 70th birthdays thanks to conductor Dennis Russell Davies, then Music Director of the Cabrillo Festival. Davies worked with Other Minds this year to present the music of these two mavericks, both as performer a...

Other Minds Festival: OM 15: Panel Discussion & Concert 1 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 127 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) The 15th Other Minds Festival of New Music (OM 15) began with a panel discussion with some of the composers and performers featured in the first night’s concert, held on March 4, 2010. Joining moderator Charles Amirkhanian on stage was, Clemens Merkel, first violinist of the Quatuor Bozzini, Swiss composer Jürg Frey, and vocalist and composer Lisa Bielawa. Frey describes the inspiration and structure of the minimal, microtonal composition which was to be heard later in the evening, while Clemens provides a demonstration of the technique required to perform it, as well as commenting on the physical challenge of playing very slowly over a long duration of time. Lisa Bielawa then discusses her song cycle based on texts by Franz Kafka, and compares the vocal stylings of Carla Kilstadht, for whom the p...

Streichquartett II This serene string quartet is a slow and subtle sequence of chords that create a series of semitones that seem to pulsate in a pattern of harmonic changes. Composer Jürg Frey introduces the piece in the program notes thusly: “When I was working on the ‘String Quartet’ (1988), I encountered the painting of Agnes Martin, I saw clear-cut forms, not ...
