91. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Criticism of San Francisco Chronicle Music Critics [5.894% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Criticism of San Francisco Chronicle Music Critics Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 15 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded in 1975, Charles Amirkhanian discusses the politics of new music in the San Francisco Bay Area, with reference to the unsympathetic criticism, leveled at avant-garde artists such as John Cage and Merce Cunningham, by music critics at the New York Times and San Francisco Chronicle, among others. Amirkhanian argues that while Bay Area audiences clearly support the radical styles of the avant-garde, the local papers of note only employ music critics that favor the contemporary classical music of more academically oriented composers, such as Roger Sessions. Amirkhanian points out that these critics routinely disparage the avant-garde composers as charlatans and purveyors of puns, jokes, and gags, all the while refusing to even describe these experimental works in their articles. Reading from a letter that he wrote...

Other Minds Festival: OM 14: Concert 3 View Item Type: Video Duration: 128 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) The third and final concert of OM 14 was held on March 7, 2009. After brief introductions and announcements, the concert begins with: Spiral Xi: Mother and Child Each of Chinary Ung's “Spiral” pieces focuses on a single idea that is re-imagined and re-contextualized over the course of the work. This work investigates the notion of musicality as something beyond instrumental practice. Rather, the use of vocal sounds (singing, humming, chanting, and whistling) is equally as important as are the variety of string techniques that form the rich vocabulary of Ung’s string writing. The balance between voice and viola shifts throughout the work, and the combination of these two dimensions produces a world that is more than the sum of its parts. - Adam Greene Listening to Lu Tzu-Hsün Play the Ch’in on a Moonlit Night It turns out that Harry Partch’s Adapte...

Other Minds Festival: OM 10, Concert 3: 02 “Les moirures du temp" & "Phonurgie" by Francis Dhomont Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 29 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) Francis Dhomont was born in Paris in 1926. He studied composition under Ginette Waldmeier, Charles Koechlin and Nadia Boulanger. In the late 1940s he intuitively discovered with magnetic wire what Schaeffer would later call musique concrète, consequently conducting solitary experiments with the musical possibilities of sound recording. In 1963 he decided to leave instrumental writing behind, dedicating himself exclusively to electro-acoustic composition, becoming an ardent proponent of the then new genre of "acousmatics." His work consists exclusively of tape pieces using natural, or "found" sounds, exploring morphological interplay and the ambiguities between sound and the images it may create. Performances in public of his music are done using the French "diffusion" technique ...
