1. - World Ear Project A Rehearsal for a Work by John Dinwiddie [7.246% Popularity: 0.00000]
World Ear Project: A Rehearsal for a Work by John Dinwiddie Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 9 min Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA From March 28, 1971, a recording of a music rehearsal for an unidentified work by John Dinwiddie. As someone plays the piano one can hear a number of other people work on getting the electronic components to work. Abrupt explosions of sound occur as what might be radios and oscillators are plugged in, turned on, or suddenly disconnected. Joining the piano are chimes, whistles, and various forms of percussion in what seems to be a rather freewheeling rehearsal. Whether it is an actual piece being rehearsed or just musicians fooling around until the amps and microphones are all up and running is a little uncertain, but that doesn’t prevent the interested listener from enjoying the sonic surroundings. Musical Selections: [set-up for and rehearsal of piece by John Dinwiddie, March 28, 1971] Performers: Julian White, piano (rehearsal) John Dinwiddie, piano (rehe...

Ode To Gravity: 15th Anniversary Program Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 123 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA On March 4, 1970 Charles Amirkhanian broadcast the first in a series of programs called “Ode to Gravity”. The focus of the program was avant-garde and contemporary music, with significant forays into the realms of poetry and experimental literature, as well as visual and performance art. Initially inspired by a live theater piece by Amirkhanian, in which assorted objects ranging from a marble to a mattress to a car fender were dropped from a balcony into a circle of spectators, the radio program, “Ode to Gravity” became the longest running avant-garde music show on American radio. In this 15 year retrospective you will hear excerpts from past programs, including the first. These include the sound poetry of Liam O'Gallagher; Leonard Bernstein’s Clarinet Sonata; James Petrillo’s city wide chess happening; John Dinwiddie’s and Phil Corner’s avalanche of pianos from a B...

World Ear Project: Transmission Nine, May 1971 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 85 min Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA The ninth transmission of KPFA’s groundbreaking series the World Ear Project, featuring unedited ambient recordings of unique or unusual environments. The World Ear Project was an attempt to bring everybody’s ears a little closer. KPFA asked their listeners and friends from around the world to send in recordings made in common places, of the sounds that surround our daily existence. The environments in which these recording were made were the sole subject of the project. It was the philosophy of those that began this endeavor, that one key step in trying to understand our neighbors is getting to know the setting in which they carry out their daily lives. In this particular program Richard Friedman plays field recordings of a helicopter landing, a recycling center, and a rodeo parade. Also included as a sort of program within the program are two recordings originally br...

Radical Aesthetics and Sound Sensitivity Information Charles Amirkhanian, KPFA's Sound Sensitivity Information Director, has been invited to join the staff of radio station VPRO in Holland from September to January. Although VPRO is a government supported station, it is enthusiastic about the Pacifica stations and we have both felt the benefit of these exchanges. Most recently, KPFA was host to Philippe Scheltema who did the midday program Here's Philippe this past winter. It helps keep our flow of information and input of ideas fresh and flexible, covering broad areas of radio, politics, and of course radical aesthetics… In Europe, radio is still alive and kicking—a force for intelligent, in-depth analysis and debate, music and literature broadcasts of a sophisticated nature, and productions in all areas of programming which are carefully thought out and skillfully accomplished by audio technicians who are experts in making a point without the aid of a video screen. But in the United States, virtually every ...

9. - John Dinwiddie Speaks Out [1.271% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Dinwiddie Speaks Out Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA In a rather informal recording made in the studios of KPFA in July of 1972, local Bay Area composer and pianist, John Dinwiddie, ruminates about the then current state of New Music and the apparent tension between the artistic vanguard and their audiences. Dinwiddie allows us to listen in to the debate that rages nightly within his own mind about the evolution of music and the impact that has had on the general concert-going public. According to Dinwiddie, the gap in appreciation and understanding between the avant-garde composer and the concert hall audience is due, in part, to the economic restraints in presenting such concerts, which are far more demanding than that of the visual arts. Concerts require more specialized, and thus more expensive, venues, and the cooperation of often many musicians, whereas pictures or photographs just need to be hung on any wall in order ...
