1. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity The Music of Larry Parque [5.901% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: The Music of Larry Parque Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 56 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA A program dedicated to the music of San Francisco Bay Area composer Larry Parque, who has experimented extensively with graphic notation and mathematical forms in music. Parque, an architect and a member of the faculty of the San Francisco State University’s Interdisciplinary Creative Arts Department was, at the time of this recording, engaged in composing a work for 21 musicians and 21 film projectors. In this program you will hear “Set II” and “Duet from Ellie”, both performed by Mimi Dye on viola and Douglas Blumenstock on cello, as well as a provocative discussion with the composer and performers. The cellist attacks the composer over how much the music depends on the sensitivity and improvisational skills of the performers, as opposed to the vision of the composer. (from KPFA Folio) Musical Selections: Set II (1968-69) (17:42) / Larry Parque -- Duet from Ellie ...
2. radiOM.org - Composer's Corner Mandala Music by Loren Rush [5.897% Popularity: 0.00000]
Composer's Corner: Mandala Music by Loren Rush Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 58 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA In what was a preview for KPFA’s first concert in the Performer’s Choice Series, held in February of 1963, Loren Rush presents rehearsal out-takes of his group improvisation piece, “Mandala Music”. Joining him for a discussion of this aleatoric piece and its graphic score, is program host Will Ogdon, Glenn Glasow, and Phil Winsor. Will Ogdon’s attempts to understand this then new form of composition and score writing are illustrative of the challenges many music listeners had with accepting the new music of the 20th Century. Rush’s clear and concise explanation of his schema serve as an excellent primer for those very same modern compositional techniques. The role of chance, of the influence of individual performers, the implications for teaching future musicians, and the possibility for popular success for such new music is all roundly discussed in this intere...

9. radiOM.org - John Cage’s Fontana Mix [5.082% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage’s Fontana Mix Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 20 min Event Type: Music Additional Media Files (click to view) This is a tape realization of John Cage’s 1958 composition “Fontana Mix”. More of an indeterminate plan for a piece than a piece itself, “Fontana Mix” has a graphic score consisting of 10 sheets of paper with curved lines and 12 transparencies, 10 of which contain a varied number of randomly distributed dots, 1 with a straight line, and the last with a grid pattern. According to Cage’s instructions these sheets could be superimposed upon each other and then interpreted so as to indicate differences in such elements as tone, duration, or volume of a variety of different sound events. Thus it was a type of manual for creating a piece of music that could be realized using traditional instruments, electronic sounds, random samples, or virtually any other type of sound making device. For this particular realization two separate mixes, consisting of electronic or electronically manipul...
