91. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Charlotte Moorman & David Tudor [0.206% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Charlotte Moorman & David Tudor Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 73 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Avant-garde cellist Charlotte Moorman and pianist David Tudor play a number of pieces by La Monte Young, Morton Feldman, Ornette Coleman, Earle Brown, Philip Corner, & John Cage. The Corner piece consists largely of detailed performance notes that are followed exactly, much to the amusement of the audience. While Moorman and Tudor might be best known for their collaborations with Nam June Paik and John Cage, respectively, they are both very talented musicians in their own right and their partnership during this program is suitably impressive. Musical Selections: Composition 1960 No. 13 (1960) / La Monte Young -- Projection I (1950) / Morton Feldman -- City Minds and Country Hearts / Ornette Coleman -- Music for Cello and Piano (1954-55) / Earle Brown -- Solo With / Philip Corner -- 34' 46.776'' for a Pianist (1954) / John Cage -- 26' 1.1499'' for a String Player (1953"5) /...

Produced by the local ensemble Relâche, this 10 day extravaganza of adventurous musical programing featured over 20 concerts, lectures, and sound installations. 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.

93. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 5, Concert 1: 09 “What Shall I Sing?” by Errollyn Wallen [0.197% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 5, Concert 1: 09 “What Shall I Sing?” by Errollyn Wallen Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 5 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds The music of composer Errollyn Wallen spans numerous styles from avant-garde classical to jazz song writing. She has composed extensively for chamber media, including piano solo and duet, string quartet and various mixed ensembles, often with voice. In between her work on classical composition, Wallen began in 1988 writing pop/jazz songs for a change of pace. The results are electrifying, as she moves freely among influences ranging from Laurie Anderson to Gospel, Bill Evans, Blues, Schubert, and Ives. “What Shall I Sing?” emerged after the end of a love relationship and includes a play on the Victorian rhyme, "Sing, sing, what shall I sing? The cat has turned into a pudding string." Wallen learned the poem from her composition teacher David Lumsdaine who wrote a setting for the actual folk rhyme. The presentation of this work was mad...
94. 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...
97. 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...
