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.

5. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music of Ben Johnston [6.221% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music of Ben Johnston Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 126 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) American composer Benjamin Burwell Johnston was born March 15, 1926 in Macon, GA. Living briefly in Berkeley, CA, in 1950, he was associated with Harry Partch and studied at the University of California and Mills College. From 1951 to 1983 he taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In this program, recorded in 1981, Johnston is interviewed by Charles Amirkhanian about his career, compositions, and influences. A composer fundamentally partial to microtones, Johnston discusses his discovery of just intonation, initiated by his contact with composer Partch.

6. radiOM.org - Composer's Corner Mandala Music by Loren Rush [5.938% 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...
7. radiOM.org - An Interview with Anthony Braxton in 1971 [5.090% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Interview with Anthony Braxton in 1971 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 23 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Avant-garde jazz saxophonist, composer, and philosopher, Anthony Braxton, is interviewed by Roland Young, Glen Howell, and Sandy Silver, on the night before a concert of his music was to be held at the Palace of the Legion of Honor on October 10th, 1971. In his typical brash and provocative style Braxton makes a series of pronouncements, including that he can be best viewed as a frustrated scientist who makes nonfunctional music that can not be used but only enjoyed, and that music as communication is an illusion. The epitome of the cool, African American jazzman, Braxton’s edited comments, interspersed with brief excerpts of his solo performances, are as much a reflection of the times in which they were recorded as they are of the man himself. Musical Selections: [multiple brief excerpts of solo saxophone music] Genres: Jazz ;...

And Amirkhanian, whose sound collage tape piece “Son of Metropolis San Francisco” was also to be heard that evening,...
