Morning Concert: The Music of David Jaffe Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 76 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Composer-performer David Jaffe has bridged the gap between acoustic folk music and the world of cerebral computer music with a multi-stylistic approach. A lecturer at Stanford University, where much of his work is produced at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), Jaffe also worked with neXt Computers on creating new types of music software. His composition “Impossible Animals” contains human vocal timbres in the shape of carefully analyzed bird songs. He is interviewed by Charles Amirkhanian about his career.

Silicon Valley Breakdown by David A. Jaffe Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 21 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA David A. Jaffe is an American composer who has written extensively for a wide variety of ensembles, yet is perhaps best known for his work with electronic and computer music, including “Silicon Valley Breakdown,” which is featured in this recording. Jaffe, a skilled multi-instrumentalist who began his career as a member of various bluegrass, folk, and rock bands, received his doctorate in music at Stanford. He is well-known for his contributions to the development of computer music, including algorithmic innovations for modeling plucked and bowed strings. According to the composer: “’Silicon Valley Breakdown’ is a spatial multi-stylistic work scored for a symphony of imaginary plucked stringed instruments. These range from a tiny ‘piccolo mandolin’ to an immense bass ‘plucked Golden Gate Bridge.’ The orchestra is frequently divided into four smaller ensembles, each with its own ...

4. radiOM.org - Three Early Compositions by David A. Jaffe [1.707% Popularity: 0.00000]
Three Early Compositions by David A. Jaffe Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 30 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Three fairly early works by David A. Jaffe. In the words of the composer, taken from some accompanying notes written around 1979: “In ‘City Life’ the architecture and idioms of the 5-string banjo generate the material of the piece and provide it with its formal structure. The banjo is clearly the protagonist confronting, leading, and joining the others. The banjo part was scored for long neck 5-string banjo, an obscure breed which was born during the folk boom in the 60s and which is no longer being produced. Because of its difficulty and the unusual technique involved with playing the banjo (e.g. in order to play a scale it is necessary to alternate strings), the banjo part was written entirely in tablature.” “’Sunday at Bean Blossom’ is a rather abstracted depiction of a day at a bluegrass festival, from the gospel sing in the morning with everyone still feeling the effects of...

Other Minds Festival: OM 20: Panel Discussion & Concert 1 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 141 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) 2015 marked the 20th anniversary of the Other Minds Festival of New Music. Other Minds Executive & Artistic Director Charles Amirkhanian explained the 20th anniversary as an opportunity to reflect on two decades worth of prescient programming. “As we look back at the nearly 200 composers we’ve brought to San Francisco for these gatherings, it seemed a good time to tip our hat to some of our most surprising discoveries who have gone on to make signal contributions to international concert life. We’ll also pay tribute to the late Peter Sculthorpe, who had accepted an invitation to be with us as our elder statesman, and the legendary Lou Harrison, whose last work was composed for our 2002 festival and our American steel guitar soloist David Tanenbaum, and will be reprised on our opening night.” Oth...
