2. radiOM.org - 1965 ONCE Festival: Concert Two [1.930% Popularity: 0.00000]
1965 ONCE Festival: Concert Two Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 65 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA The 1965 ONCE Festival was held in Ann Arbor, Michigan from Feb. 11-14. This was the fifth in a series of festivals put on during the early and mid-1960s which were devoted to new and avant-garde music. The founders of the ONCE Festivals and its associated ONCE Group included Robert Ashley, Gordon Mumma, George Cacioppo, Roger Reynolds, and Donald Scavarda. This, the second concert, held on February 12, 1965, includes works by Russell Peck, Robert Ashley, George Crevoshay, George Cacioppo and Blue Gene Tyranny. The composition’s were probably all composed between 1964 and 1965 and for most this was their first performance. They all involve pre-recorded tape, and electronic or amplified instruments, and clearly represent the type of experimental music then being explored by many young composers,. However, the fact that many of these men later went on to enjoy successful careers is perhaps f...
3. radiOM.org - Dresden Interleaf and Medium Size Mograph by Gordon Mumma [1.369% Popularity: 0.00000]
Dresden Interleaf and Medium Size Mograph by Gordon Mumma Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 21 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Gordon Mumma was born in 1935 in Framingham, Mass. One of the originators of the ONCE Festival, he has also established, in collaboration with Robert Ashley, several tours of contemporary music productions. Mumma’s composition “Mograph-Interleaf-Mograph” makes use of large sections of electronic music materials. The “Interleaf” section, by itself called “The Dresden Interleaf (13 February 1945) In Memoriam,” is almost entirely electronic, being composed on four-channel magnetic tape. The first Mograph section is for piano, performed by two pianists. The final Mograph section is also for piano, but the sounds are directly modified by electronic means and heard from loudspeakers. The work was composed between 1963 and 1965. In this recording we hear the final two sections only: “Dresden Interleaf” and “Medium Size Mograph.” The pianists are Mumma and Robert Ashley a...
4. radiOM.org - Fruit Punch Young Caesar: A Puppet Opera by Lou Harrison [1.161% Popularity: 0.00000]
Fruit Punch: Young Caesar: A Puppet Opera by Lou Harrison Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 159 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) On December 25, 1974, as a Christmas special, the Fruit Punch Collective presented a recording of the 1971 world premiere performance of Lou Harrison’s gay-oriented opera, “Young Caesar”. The story of the opera explores the meeting, and purported subsequent love affair, between the young Julius Caesar and King Nicomedes IV of Bithynia. In addition to desiring to write an opera with a homosexual theme, Harrison was also attracted to the story about Caesar and Nicomedes because it represented the meeting between East and West. Building upon that theme the musical score calls for a variety of Eastern instruments including gamelan, and rather than using real actors, puppets and shadow figures were utilized instead, much as they are in Indonesia. The homoerotic nature of the story was made quite evident in such scenes as the ball...

The performance was conducted by Robert Hughes, who recollects: "...We took the work on tour, including at the National Music Educators' Convention in Seattle and, following the performance, the work was loudly booed while the ‘educators’ swooped to the stage to gobble up as many programs as they could to take home with them....

New Music for Pianos : Live Recordings by ONCE Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 50 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Based in Ann Arbor, MI, ONCE was one of the most experimental groups of American composers active in the mid-20th century. Among its members were many that even until this day remain fairly obscure, although others, such as Robert Ashley and Gordon Mumma, have gone on to become well-known throughout North America and the world. In this program you will hear a selection of early, largely aleatoric works that were first presented in a series called New Music for Pianos, and were performed at a variety of Midwestern universities during the 1960s. The program begins with “Cassiopeia” by George Cacioppo, a two minute piece consisting of four structures written on a single page. They can be played in any order and are here performed by Robert Ashley and Gordon Mumma. This is followed by Ashley’s own “Detail 2b” composed in 1962. The one obvious characteristic of the piece is the i...
