Like his compatriot Olivier Messiaen, his music is the result of his deep involvement in Catholicism. Little known in the United States at the time of this recording, Ballif had produced a highly original and very unified series of works dating back to the mid-1950s. He was a professor of music at the Reims Conservatory and the product of the exciting and turbulent post World War II years of the Western avant-garde which saw the rise of such musical metaphysicians as Pierre Boulez and Karlheinz Stockhausen. But Ballif’s vision was a wide one, and he has sho...

93. radiOM.org - Vexations by Erik Satie [5.064% Popularity: 0.00000]
Vexations by Erik Satie Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 46 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA This is a 45 minute live performance by an unidentified pianist of Erik Satie’s “Vexations.” The work was composed in 1893 and although no particular instrument is specified in the score it has long been assumed that it was intended for the piano. The piece consists of a short theme that is repeated sometimes by itself and other times with the chords above. The manuscript has an inscription that states “Pour se jouer 840 fois de suite ce motif, il sera bon de se préparer au préalable, et dans le plus grand silence, par des immobilités sérieuses,” which has been translated as “in order to play the theme 840 times in succession, it would be advisable to prepare oneself beforehand and in the deepest silence, by serious immobilites.” Many artists have interpreted this as a statement of Satie’s intention that the piece requires the full 840 repetitions which can mean that a full performance can take in...

Speaking of Music: Conlon Nancarrow (1984) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 101 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Recorded on February 2, 1984 as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer Conlon Nancarrow before a live audience. The program begins with a short slide show narrated by Eva Soltes, about life and work of Conlon Nancarrow. Charles Amirkhanian then talks with the composer about his music. Conlon Nancarrow has been recognized as one of the most fascinating 20th century composers in the world. An expatriate American who lived in Mexico City, Nancarrow composed almost exclusively for the player piano. His incredibly complex scores are not playable by human hands, but through his laborious hand-punched piano rolls, the music is dazzling in its speed and complexity. In this program Nancarrow discussed the oppressive political atmosphere that led him to leave the Unite...

Colin McPhee and the Music of Bali Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: C Amirkhanian Henry Cowell presents a program on the music of Indonesia, featuring early recordings of gamelan music, as well as many transcriptions of Balinese music by Colin McPhee. The music of Indonesia first came to the attention of the West when in the 1920s Erich M. von Hornbostel and others collected and commercially released a number of gamelan performances, recorded in the villages of Indonesia. These early 78rpm records later inspired the Canadian composer, Colin McPhee, to travel to the island of Bali, for what was to be a trip of a few months but ended up lasting more than seven years. During that time McPhee made numerous transcriptions of ceremonial gamelan music for two pianos and occasionally for flute and piano. Cowell presents some of those early field recordings as well as many of McPhee’s arrangements, performed by McPhee and fellow composer Benjamin Britte...

Other Minds Festival: OM 9, Concert 4: 02 “Paisajes Audibles” by Stephen Scott Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 62 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds “Paisajes Audibles” (”Audible Landscapes”) was composed on commission from Meet The Composer Commissioning Music USA for Other Minds Festival 9. The work is a kind of song-cycle fantasy celebrating various landscapes, both physical and imagined, both natural and cultural, of Lanzarote, easternmost of the Canary Islands. I was inspired to make this work not only as a personal manifestation of my affection for Lanzarote, which I have now visited three times, but also in response to two other sources: the evocative work of painter/photographer/installation artist Ildefonso Aguilar, Founder and Director of the Visual Music Festival of Lanzarote and whose recent series of paintings, “Paisajes Audibles”, provides my title; and the poetry and prose of several writers, including Plato, Lorca and Agustín Espinosa, who have examined ideas of land...
