Amirkhanian then interviews Richard Factor, the co-inventor of this ingenious device, in his busy New York City office. Amirkhanian also presents brief interviews with Margaret Jory, Director of the American Music Center, the United States’ official information center and repository for contemporary classical music; and with Phill Niblock, composer and director of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation, and who was preparing to broadcast his, “Concerts for Composers,” a collection of live performances recorded in Niblock’s New York City loft.

Morning Concert: Armenian Martyr's Day, 1992 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 78 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Beginning with the touching folk tune “Garun A”, transcribed by Komitas for chorus and piano, Charles Amirkhanian introduces a program of Armenian music rich in variety and textures.

Composer Maia Aprahamian of Tiburon, California, didn't know her father was Armenian until she was 17. Her story is a touching one told in her own words. She studied composition with Vittorio Giannini and we hear her serenely beautiful work "Batter My Heart" (after the John Donne poem), performed at Grace Cathedral by Barry Tuckwell (French horn) and John Fenstermaker (organ) r...

According to the composer’s notes found in the concert program guide: “Except for ‘Prison Song,’ which was originally composed for Yamashta in 1971, these songs were written between January and June 1973...I had wanted to set some of the poems for many years, but it was only in 1973 that I felt the possibility of integrating them into a larger song cycle. The choice of the poems and the order in which they are arranged reflect my own personal political perspective and emotional involvement, and it is this perspective and these feelings which give the cycle its cohesion, rather than ...

Other Minds Festival: OM 14: Concert 3 View Item Type: Video Duration: 128 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) The third and final concert of OM 14 was held on March 7, 2009. After brief introductions and announcements, the concert begins with: Spiral Xi: Mother and Child Each of Chinary Ung's “Spiral” pieces focuses on a single idea that is re-imagined and re-contextualized over the course of the work. This work investigates the notion of musicality as something beyond instrumental practice. Rather, the use of vocal sounds (singing, humming, chanting, and whistling) is equally as important as are the variety of string techniques that form the rich vocabulary of Ung’s string writing. The balance between voice and viola shifts throughout the work, and the combination of these two dimensions produces a world that is more than the sum of its parts. - Adam Greene Listening to Lu Tzu-Hsün Play the Ch’in on a Moonlit Night It turns out that Harry Partch’s Adapte...
