2. radiOM.org - Spoffy Nene by Charles Amirkhanian [7.293% Popularity: 0.00000]
Spoffy Nene by Charles Amirkhanian Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 7 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA This work is one in a series of word-tape compositions by Charles Amirkhanian. It was premiered at the Hansen-Fuller Gallery in San Francisco on March 26, 1971, during an evening of sound poetry that also featured works by Liam O’Gallagher, Anthony Gnazzo, John Payne, Clark Coolidge, and others. While fairly basic in it elements, consisting of just a few words recited in seemingly random fashion by a number of different speakers, the piece obtains its beauty and complexity from the layered interplay between each individual part as they go in and out of phase with each other. In some senses this work has more in common with a Steve Reich composition than it does to any sort of traditional poetry.

3. radiOM.org - Words Program No. 17: Charles Amirkhanian [7.283% Popularity: 0.00000]
Words: Program No. 17: Charles Amirkhanian Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 59 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) One in a series of programs produced by Clark Coolidge that feature the works of late 20th century poets, sound poets, and authors. This recording features an early, hour long, text-sound composition by Charles Amirkhanian, one of the premiere artists in the field of sound poetry. Amirkhanian utilizes all the tools available at the time in creating this hypnotic interplay between sound and meaning. By deconstructing language into its most basic elements and then rearranging and layering them, Amirkhanian manages to create something totally new yet still familiar, and not to be missed. While other artists have since used digital samplers and computers to create similar works, the fact that this piece was created largely through the splicing of quarter inch tape makes it all the more impressive. Musical Selections: Words (1969) / Charle...

Also intruding from time to time are ambient sounds of Mr. Harrison's household. The original monaural field recordings were mixed into a four-track master that was premiered on the first-ever four-channel broadcast, produced by two stations simultaneously: KPFA (Berkeley) and KSAN (San Francisco). This is an early iteration of Amirkhanian's experiments with the spoken word as material for tape...

9. radiOM.org - Charles Amirkhanian Interviewed on Radio Adelaide (Dec. 1, 2011) [7.237% Popularity: 0.00000]
Charles Amirkhanian Interviewed on Radio Adelaide (Dec. 1, 2011) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 170 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: Radio Adelaide Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian visited with host Grahame Dudley of Radio Adelaide, Australia, on December 1, 2011 (9am-12pm). "Imagine that you were asked to create a 60-second 'commercial' in the form of a work of new music which was to be aired on a European rock station. Furthermore, that the sound of the piece was, in some way, to exemplify the cultural connection between France and the U.S. Via immigration, migration, domination, and through war and peace, the populations of these two nations have, by the late 20th century, taken on striking multi-cultural profiles, which in the allotted time can be only hinted at here. My solution was to collage snippets of various ethnic musics, both from the former French colonies and from Cajun and Native American music." Dudley plays a selection of music by Amir...
10. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity Text-sound poetry by Charles Amirkhanian, Anthony Gnazzo, & Clark Coolidge [7.218% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: Text-sound poetry by Charles Amirkhanian, Anthony Gnazzo, & Clark Coolidge Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 121 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) A program of text-sound and poetry works by Anthony Gnazzo, Clark Coolidge, and Charles Amirkhanian. Gnazzo is interviewed by Charles about his career and the techniques he uses to create his compositions. Gnazzo, a pioneer in the field of electronic music who now lives in relative obscurity in Oakland, composes entirely on tape, and yet does not even have a tape or record player in his house. His rigorous training in music at Brandeis University under the tutelage of Arthur Berger, amply prepared him for his work as design consultant and equipment technician in the electronics laboratory at California State University at Hayward, where he spent a good deal of his time recording senior recitals and soldering connectors on broken headphones. Gnazzo, like most American composers, is labor...
