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....

9. radiOM.org - Speaking of Music Frank Zappa (1984) [6.211% Popularity: 0.00000]
Speaking of Music: Frank Zappa (1984) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 134 min Event Type: Interview and Music In an interview recorded on May 20, 1984, before a live audience as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium's Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian speaks with Frank Zappa about his forays into, and subsequent retreat from, the world of so called “serious” music. Zappa begins his remarks with the proclamation that Art in America is dead. He then lays the blame for its moribund state on schools that have ceased to educate, a mass media that only entertains but never explores, and the tendency of those who do still attend cultural events to be only interested in being seen and drinking copious amounts of white wine. During the first half of the program Zappa plays excerpts from a number of projects, including performances of his music by the London Symphony Orchestra and Ensemble InterContemporain, as well as a number of works composed on the Synclavier, one of the first digital synt...
10. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music by Johanna Magdalena Beyer, Mar. 29, 1990 [6.202% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music by Johanna Magdalena Beyer, Mar. 29, 1990 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 118 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA This is the first of two programs devoted to the works of the largely forgotten German-American composer, Johanna Magdalena Beyer (1888-1944). Beyer, who died of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, was a pioneering avant-garde composer who’s works would be lost if it were not for the preservation efforts of the American Music Center in New York City, to which she had donated her scores prior to her death. Beyer was by most accounts a tall, angular, painfully self-conscious woman, who nevertheless devoted herself to the cause of contemporary classical music, even serving as a personal secretary for Henry Cowell during his imprisonment on homosexual morals charges. This program includes recordings of Beyer’s music made at the first of two concerts devoted solely to Beyer’s work. The concert occurred on N...
