1. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 1: Radio Caress [5.756% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 1: Radio Caress Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 29 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA This is the first in a series of programs produced by KPFA's Music Department in which artists from various disciplines were asked to take any amount of air time and get the audience to respond actively to the audio broadcast, rather than simply being passive listeners. While the program can be enjoyed as an auditory soundscape the primary purpose was to produce "event art" or "happenings", with the listeners as full participants. In this first such program of its type, intended as an art experience, intermedia artist and KPFA Music Director, Charles Amirkhanian presents the listeners with an assortment of instructions for physical and mental activities tied to a variety of sounds produced in the radio studio. Suggested activities range from making faces or moving one’s head, imagining the forms of letters, doodling on cereal boxes, to making sounds to correspond with ...
2. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 18: Radio Free Music Day [5.736% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 18: Radio Free Music Day Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 34 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) On November 7, 1971, between the hours of 2 PM and 4 PM, as part of its genre defying, groundbreaking Radio Event series, KPFA invited the public to play music live on the radio. The KPFA mobile bus was at a park in downtown Berkeley California where the listening public, and anybody else in the area, was asked to bring sound making devices of any sort and to play them in front of the KPFA mics. Foghorns, tympani, license plates, gongs, saxophones, guitars, and garbage cans were all welcome. Anything that could be used to produce sounds was fair game, the stranger the better. The resulting sounds were directly transmitted to Northern California, for all to hear. For anyone who wonders what those hippies that gathered in the parks of the Bay Area during the 1960s did or sounded like, this is your opportunity to listen in a...
3. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 2: No Soap, Radio [5.734% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 2: No Soap, Radio Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 62 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA This is the second in a series of groundbreaking, participatory, radio programs produced by KPFA. In this program, recorded on October 31, 1969, Berkeley, California sculptor, Peter Veres, invited listeners to take part in a do-it-yourself Halloween Brindle Party, a self-proclaimed Witches’ Sabbath, all through the magic of the radio air waves. (What’s a Brindle you ask, why it's the opposite of a Mugwamp of course.) Prior to the actual event, subscribers to the KPFA program guide were encouraged to send in to the station strange box-tops along with $2, in order to receive a special, limited edition, “No Soap Kit” which were to contain at least 18 items such as scores, instruments, images, masks, ritual foods, potions, and other sundry materials. Then during the actual broadcast on Halloween night, listeners were first asked to call in with their introductory toasts,...
4. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 5: X-Change [5.732% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 5: X-Change Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 37 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Composed in 1969 specifically for broadcast on KPFA’s groundbreaking, audience participation, Radio Event series, Anthony Gnazzo has created yet another hilarious work of sound poetry or aural montage. Mixing snippets of advertisements, announcements, and music from the mainstream media, with excerpts of phone interviews that Gnazzo conducted with KPFA listeners about their impressions of radio programming and commercials, this work captures the combination of youthful innocence and crass capitalism that characterized the late 1960s. An absolute gem of adventurous, experimental, radio programing. Note: Contains some profanity. Musical Selections: [collage of music and speech samples, many taken from various TV and radio broadcasts, mixed with humorous interviews with radio listeners] Genres: Interactive Art ; Sound Poetry Subject: Sou...
5. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 20: Philodendron [5.731% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 20: Philodendron Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 45 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA On October 18, 1972, Tom Zahuranec invited the radio audience down to the KPFA Music Office to communicate mentally with a philodendron which was wired with liquid electrodes feeding impulses into a Buchla synthesizer. His call for audience participation was answered by scores of avid listeners who flocked to the KPFA studios in order to see for themselves just how responsive a philodendron could be. Once there they experimented with the plant by getting closer or farther away from it, thinking good thoughts, and twisting the knobs of all the electronic equipment. This program includes commentary of Amirkhanian and Zahuranec of this unique radio event, as well as the impressions of the participants.

6. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 9: Boiling Water [5.727% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 9: Boiling Water Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 14 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA One in a series of groundbreaking, audience participatory, Radio Events, produced by KPFA in Berkeley California. This program, entitled “Boiling Water” was created by Philip Corner in conjunction with Charles Amirkhanian and his wife Carol Law. In order to participate, the audience was encouraged to listen to the radio while standing near the stove. The general idea was to have the audience boil some water and make some tea, or some other warm beverage, in concert with the two on-air personalities, Amirkhanian and Law. Unlike some other program in the Radio Event series, there is nothing preventing current radiOM.org listeners from joining in this interactive experience despite the span of years that separate the original broadcast from the current day. So go to your stoves and enjoy the timeless comfort of listening to the radio while enjoying a good cup of tea. Gen...
7. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 8: Bags [5.726% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 8: Bags Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 62 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA In a unique integration of radio, art, and the listening audience, Peter Veres, Anthony Gnazzo, and Gene Turitz present an interactive documentary on bags. This intermedia event was co-sponsored by KPFA and the Berkeley Art Center in Live Oak Park, Berkeley. This program is, in many ways, a field recording of children and other visitors interacting in a room full of bags at the Art Center, while Veres, Gnazzo, and Turitz provide a running commentary on the events as they unfold (or get crumpled) before them. Musical Selections: [ambient sounds of children playing with some explanatory commentary] Genres: Interactive Art ; Field Recordings Subject: Field recordings ; Participatory art ; Interactive art ; Audience participation radio programs ; Bags People: Veres, Peter, 1938- ; Gnazzo, Anthony, 1936- ; Turitz, Eugene Recording Date: 3/28/1970 First Broadcast Date: 3/28/1970 Lis...
8. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 4: DD [5.723% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 4: DD Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA Stanley Lunetta, editor of the avant-garde music periodical “Source,” invited the listening audience to participate at home as part of KPFA’s groundbreaking, interactive, participatory, Radio Event series. Using a graphic score and list of instructions published in the December 1969 KPFA Folio, or program guide, audience members were encouraged to listen to various programs on KPFA while altering the settings on their radios. The listeners were requested to record the sonic results and to then bring the tapes to the station for eventual broadcast during this Radio Event program. Suggested activities included, turning the radio on and off, moving from AM to FM, adjusting the treble and bass controls, changing stations, etc... It seems that most listeners chose to record KPFA programs featuring electronic music, perhaps inspired by Lunetta’s own regular KPFA program, also called “...
9. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 14: Armenia Gardenia [5.723% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 14: Armenia Gardenia Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA Armenia Gardenia” by Charles Amirkhanian, was the 14th program in the groundbreaking Radio Event series, in which audience reactions were incorporated into a live KPFA radio broadcast. This work utilizes short pre-recorded sound events, such as snatches of music or talking, that were then played over the air interspersed with long periods of silence. Amirkhanian then waited for listeners to call into the station to inquire as to the nature of the broadcast in progress. These calls were recorded and then broadcast along with the rest of the sound events, leading to an, at time hilarious, interaction between the shows creators at KPFA and its intended audience. Ingenious and funny, this show is one of the better examples of the sort of genre defying programing that characterized KPFA. Genre: Interactive Art Subject: Participatory art ; Interactive art ; Audience par...
10. radiOM.org - Radio Event No. 3: Furniture Mix [5.720% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radio Event: No. 3: Furniture Mix Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 51 min Event Type: Inter-Media / Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA Dancer, choreographer, and intermedia artist, Anna Halprin leads the KPFA audience in a participatory event, recorded live on Thursday evening, November 20, 1969. Listeners were encouraged to rearrange their furniture at home in time to music played over the air and then to visualize a fantasy which occurred to them in the process. These fantasies were called into the station towards the conclusion of the program. The show’s producer and host was Charles Amirkhanian. Anna Halprin directed the event. The program begins with a short summary of Halprin's recent activity at the time in leading a bi-racial workshop and performance of her, "Ceremony of Us". This show is from a series of audience participation radio programs in which artists were given air time to create situations that physically involved the listening audience.
