91. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 11, Concert 1: 01 “Sethwork” by Phill Niblock [5.094% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 11, Concert 1: 01 “Sethwork” by Phill Niblock Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 23 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Composer Phill Niblock presents the West Coast premiere of “Sethwork”, featuring guitarist Seth Josel and two simultaneously projected films by Niblock, whose music is always accompanied by motion pictures of his own making. Using an e-bow, Josel, an American living in Germany, creates a series of overlaid sustained guitar pitches, filling the hall with a rich texture of sound projected through an array of sophisticated speakers, immersing the audience in an overpowering audio illusion. A long-time New Yorker, Niblock travels frequently to present his work abroad and has composed drone works for clarinet, tympani, tuba, and sousaphone, as well as combinations of two or more instruments. Musical Selections: Sethwork (2003) (22:29) / Phill Niblock Performers: Seth Josel, guitars with e-bow Genres: Avant-Garde ; Electro-Acoustic / Electronic Subje...

Other Minds Festival: OM 11, Panel Discussion 2 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 38 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Prior to the start of the first concert of OM 11, held on February 25, 2006, Charles Amirkhanian moderated this panel discussion with the featured composers and some of the performers of that night’s musical offerings. Maria De Alvear, who studied music theater with Mauricio Kagel, and is perhaps best known for her intricately fashioned evening long works, describes her “Gran Sol” which she was to perform with fellow singer Amelia Cuni and cellist Joan Jeanrenaud. Fred Frith and his former student and current musical partner Sudhu Tewari, then discuss how broken household appliances can be easily turned into musical instruments, as well as touching a upon some of the difference between performing improvised versus composed music. And Amirkhanian, whose sound collage tape piece “Son of Metropolis San Francisco” was also to be heard that evening, t...
93. radiOM.org - An Interview with Toshi Ichiyanagi, 1967 [5.092% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Interview with Toshi Ichiyanagi, 1967 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 32 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: Shere/KPFA Recorded at the Beresford Hotel in San Francisco on December 12, 1967, Charles Shere interviews the Japanese avant-garde composer, Toshi Ichiyanagi. The two discuss their dismay over the exodus of experimental composers from the San Francisco Bay Area since the heyday of the San Francisco Tape Center in the early 1960s. Shere also questions the globe-trotting Ichiyanagi about the contrasting styles of composers from different regions of the world, and the regrettable tendency of composers to criticize each other. Also touched upon are Ichiyanagi’s opinions about John Cage’s efforts to inform his music with the lessons of Zen Buddhism, an attempt that Ichiyanagi thinks might be too cerebral. Despite his apparent fluency in English, it is possible that Ichiyanagi was slightly hampered in expressing his full views by conducting the interview in a foreign language, however t...
94. radiOM.org - An Interview with John Cage & David Tudor, (May 29, 1972) [5.090% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Interview with John Cage & David Tudor, (May 29, 1972) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 71 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA This is an interview with John Cage & David Tudor, conducted in French and English. This particular interview was purportedly recorded on May 29, 1972, a time at which both John Cage and David Tudor were on a European tour featuring performances in London, Bremen, Paris and other European cities. Cage talks about the influence that Henry David Thoreau, Marcel Duchamp, and others have had on his own artistic output. Works discussed include Cage’s “Mureau” and David Tudor’s “Rainforest,” which were performed simultaneously during their 1972 European concerts. Another pairing of the two composer’s works, Cage’s “62 Mesostics Re Merce Cunningham,” and Tudor’s “Untitled” is also discussed. Towards the end of the program David Tudor talks about his decision to play the piano less, and instead focus on his own electronic music. Part 1 of 2: Genres: New Music ; Electr...
95. radiOM.org - That Morning Thing, an opera by Robert Ashley [5.090% Popularity: 0.00000]
That Morning Thing, an opera by Robert Ashley Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 83 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA A live recording of the complete experimental opera, “That Morning Thing” by Robert Ashley, possibly from the Dec. 8, 1969 performance at Mills College. Composed in 1967 this was Ashley’s second foray into the realm of avant-garde musical theater, and is a work for five principal voices, eight dancers, women's chorus and tape. The mainstream media’s reaction, as well as that of some in the audience, was notably mixed, however rather than being a commentary on the ultimate quality of the work it seems to be more an indication of the audience’s unfamiliarity with Ashley’s trademark mix of electronic and prerecorded sounds with the more traditional elements of opera. Certainly for anybody interested in avant-garde theater in general or Robert Ashley specifically, this historic recording of one of his earliest and perhaps lesser known works should be of immense interest and value...

She was also closely associated with Nam June Paik, who created many works for her, including the famous one where she wears a bra made up of two mini-TVs. She had a wonderful Southern accent and made quite a presence on stage. She also performed at many Fluxus events in NYC in the 1960's. Harvey Matusow, on the other hand, was a charlatan, superb con man, sometimes art dealer, and new music producer. He is perhaps more famous for his dealings with the McCarthy era, House Commitee on Un-American Activities hearings in the 1950's (see his book “False Witness”) fo...
