Morning Concert: Avant-Garde Music from the Netherlands Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 52 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Han Reiziger joins Charles Amirkhanian in the KPFA studio to play selections of avant-garde music from the Netherlands. Like Charles, Han is a well known radio personality in the Netherlands, specializing in new and avant-garde music. Here he introduces American audiences to recent experimental works in jazz, classical, and electronic music, all by Dutch composers. The last three selections are mixed into a auditory montage in a style that Reiziger, who died in 2006, regularly employed on his own show on VPRO in the Netherlands. Musical Selections: Alexander's Marschbefehl / ICP-Tentet -- Steve’s Pipe (for Steve Lacy) / Michel Waisvisz -- Triste / Leo Cuypers -- Nieuw Werk, for bass clarinet & piano / Paul Termos -- Houdini [excerpt, text by Adrian Mitchell] (1977) / Peter Schat -- Hoketus [excerpt] (1975-77) / Louis Andriessen -- Crackle [excerpt] / M...

3. radiOM.org - A Concert of Contemporary Avant-Garde Music [7.296% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Concert of Contemporary Avant-Garde Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 69 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Selections from a concert of contemporary avant-garde music probably dating back to 1968 or thereabouts. This concert was most likely organized by pianist and composer Robert Moran, who was very active in the San Francisco Bay Area during the late 1960s performing and producing concerts of experimental music, and most of the compositions included were aleatoric in nature. The first selection heard is Moran’s own “Interiors,” scored for an unspecified number of players, and performed here by a brass ensemble of San Jose State University. This is followed by Sylvano Bussotti’s “Sensitivo,” performed by a trio of musicians utilizing a variety of Oriental instruments, including bells, flute, and stringed instruments. “Credentials,” a avant-garde theatrical piece for actor and eight instruments is heard next, with Moran’s tortured monologue being accompanied by an unspecified instr...

5. radiOM.org - Radiofest: New American Music Whatever Happened to the Avant-Garde ? [7.274% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radiofest: New American Music: Whatever Happened to the Avant-Garde ? Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 30 min Event Type: Documentary This is the second, mostly self-contained, half of a program produced by the American Society of University Composers in conjunction with Radiofest: New American Music, in which the state of avant-garde music in the late 1970s is explored. The program begins with a look back at a typical avant-garde performance from the heady days of the 1960s, for which an audience gathered to witness the ignition of a single jet engine. After several failed attempts to get the engine lit using a match, during which some in the audience got closer to the jet than suggested, combustion was finally achieved leading to an immediate and uncontrolled exit from the area during which fences were trampled and one person broke their leg. In contrast, the two featured composers in this program, Donald Erb, and David Cope, talk about how the avant-garde of the late 1970s is in a state of refle...

8. radiOM.org - An Avant-Garde Christmas Concert by the S.F. Conservatory of New Music Ensemble, (Dec. 3, 1970) [7.182% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Avant-Garde Christmas Concert by the S.F. Conservatory of New Music Ensemble, (Dec. 3, 1970) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 81 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA On December 3, 1970 the San Francisco Conservatory New Music Ensemble presented this Avant-Garde Christmas Concert, at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco. The concert begins with “The Queens’ Funeral March and Canzona,” which was originally composed by Henry Purcell as incidental music for a play but was used for the funeral procession of Queen Mary in 1695. It has been orchestrated here by Robert Moran. This is followed by Purcell’s “Fantazia No. 6” and a reprise of the “March,” all orchestrated by Moran in which no notes have been added or subtracted, but merely reassigned to different instruments. We then hear an original composition by Moran, based on a simple two voice musical example by Purcell and entitled “Variations for Mr. Purcell.” The concert then takes a distinctly more modern turn with Shinʾichi Matsushita aleat...
9. radiOM.org - La Monte Young’s Eternal Music [6.606% Popularity: 0.00000]
La Monte Young’s Eternal Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 87 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA This program features a number of pieces of minimal or drone music by La Monte Young. Some of these works with such cryptic titles as “23 VIII 64 2:50:45-3:11AM, the volga delta” may be played at various speeds, as demonstrated in this program. Described as some of the most difficult music played on KPFA, Young’s music effectively combines the spirituality of the East with Western intellectual and technical interests. These performances are by La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela. (from KPFA Folio) Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: 23 VIII 64 2:50:45-3:11 AM, the volga delta [33 1/3 rpm] -- 31 VII 69 10:26-10:49 PM Performers: La Monte Young, bowed gong, vocals Marian Zazeela, bowed gong, vocals Genres: Avant-Garde ; Electro-Acoustic / Electronic Subject: Young, La Monte ; Avant-garde (Music) ; New music ; Ambient music ; Drone music ; Minimal music ; Aleatory music ; Vocal duets with electroni...

Open Evening: Beethoven's 200th Birthday: The Avant-Garde Celebrates Beethoven? Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 184 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA A somewhat irreverent, bicentennial birthday celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven with Charles Amirkhanian, pianist Julian White, and guests. After a rousing start with Chuck Berry’s “Roll Over Beethoven.” the “Overture to ‘Fidelio’” is heard, followed by a reading by George Cleve on the subject of Beethoven’s life and death. Amirkhanian then plays a number of the Maestro’s lighter works, including his “Trio in G Major” for three flutes, and the “Five Variations on ‘Rule Britannia.” Charles is then joined by White who reads from a number of biographical sketches written by Beethoven’s contemporaries as well as some entries from the composer’s diary. This is followed by a discussion of Beethoven’s declining health with two purported medical experts, Drs. Gestalt and Schmutzig. Their credentials and command of medical terminology ...
