91. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 9, Concert 2: 02 “Six Little Stains” by Amy X. Neuburg [1.342% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 9, Concert 2: 02 “Six Little Stains” by Amy X. Neuburg Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 40 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds These songs constitute a sampling of the solo repertoire I've been developing over the past two years. They were created as individual works, not as a "cycle," which means you're allowed to clap after each one. Much of my music is loop-based; single vocal lines are "overdubbed" to build up a chorus of harmonies. In performance I use twelve touch-sensitive drum pads, both to bang out rhythmic accompaniment and to send instructions to my equipment, to start and stop recording a loop, for instance, or to control my digital mixer. The foot pedals can function similarly or can change instrument setups between songs or sections. I'm often asked about my composition process and to what extent the technology dictates the music. I always keep in mind the capabilities of my instruments while composing, but before even entering the studio I'll us...

Other Minds Festival: OM 1: Panel on Intercultural Affairs (Nov. 6, 1993) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 102 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds This fascinating panel discussion focusing on world music was held on November 6, 1983 as part of the first Other Minds Festival of New Music (OM 1) at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. Moderator Charles Amirkhanian is joined by Julia Wolfe, Jon Jang, Foday Musa Suso, Jai Uttal, and Tom Buckner. The event began with composer Julia Wolfe admitting to a love of Led Zeppelin and her amazement at the speed of African drumming, both of which have influenced her own work. San Francisco-based jazz pianist and composer Jon Jang talks about how both President Nixon’s trip to China and the West African musical influences found in many jazz recordings opened him up to world music. He then plays an excerpt from his Asian-themed composition “The Color of Reality.” Gambian kora master Foday Musa Suso then delights the audience...

Program Music 19, No. 3 by Emmanuel Ghent Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 19 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Born in Montreal, Canada in 1929, Emmanuel Ghent studied both psychiatric medicine and music at McGill University, before emigrating to New York in 1951, where he continued his musical training while also becoming a clinical professor of psychology. Although an oboist, Ghent became interested in electronic music in the 1960s and was a pioneer in the use of computers in musical composition. He worked with the GROOVE system at Bell Labs, starting in the late 1960s, and continued to discover innovative methods for incorporating synthesized sounds in his compositions. In the late 1970s he produced a series of 29 computer music pieces of varying lengths, of which this, “Little Changes” is the 19th. As the title indicates the piece features a progression of fairly rapid notes that have small and subtle differences. Ghent died on March 31, 2003. Musical Selections: Program Music 19, No....

Charles quizzes Éloy about how he has dealt with extending the timing of vocal music in the Asian style when using performers that have trained only in Western techniques. Éloy also discusses the issues surrounding improvisation. He is of the opinion that in the West, improvisation has become strongly associated with random anarchy, rather than the structured spontaneity that is found in Indian music, and other Eastern tradi...

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...
