Bodin, one of the most prominent composers in Sweden, is a leading practitioner of text-sound composition and electronic music. At the time of this recording Bodin was in the middle of a world tour that would take him to India and Iran, and yet he found the time to sit down with Amirkhanian to talk about his music as well as present a selection of compositions by other Sweden based composers. Much of the program is devoted to listening to Bodin’s “From Clouds.” The composition, elements of which were to accompany a large multi-media and theatrical piece entitled “Clouds,” features organ and other musique concrète sounds, all heavily processed by means of tape manipulation and analog synthesizer...

Åke Parmerud then reflects on the nature of science and the concept that all of creation can be considered as a single organic machine, and how he has used it as the philosophical basis for his tape piece “La Vie Mécanique”. Elena Kats-Chernin describes her works for piano, which despite their deceptively simple structure, are in fact incredibly difficult to play. And a somewhat taciturn Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith offers a brief introduction to his compositional technique, while also declaring his personal predilection to not talk about h...

99. radiOM.org - Speaking of Music Charles Wuorinen [1.131% Popularity: 0.00000]
Speaking of Music: Charles Wuorinen Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 127 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded on January 17, 1985 as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian interviews New York composer Charles Wuorinen. Wuorinen is part of the Uptown School of American composers and he discusses the difference between his type of music and that produced by the Downtown School of minimalists and aleatoric influenced composers. Indeed, over the years, Wuorinen has been a strong critic of many avant-garde trends in music, claiming that many composers have strayed far away from the “patrimony” of the European classical tradition. He also voices his opinions about patronage of the arts and the lack of standards in modern composition as well as taking questions from the live audience.
