Speaking of Music: Brian Eno on Art and Music (February 27, 1988) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 133 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) In the second of two consecutive appearances before a live audience, as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer and artist Brian Eno, about his latest multi-media installation, and other subjects of interest. Eno had just finished working at the Exploratorium on a video art project called “Latest Flames,” in which he had used video monitors as an ever changing light source to illuminate a selection of paintings, all placed in a relatively dark space, with ambient music playing in the background. Eno describes, in some considerable detail, how he developed this installation. He also discusses his experiences at art school, as well as his ideas about when his “experiments” become music, (when he ceases to feel he has to defend them); the ...
2. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Alexander Kan: Mr. New Music USSR [5.871% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Alexander Kan: Mr. New Music USSR Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 123 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA When the ROVA Saxophone Quartet toured the Soviet Union in the mid-1980s, it was the enterprising and irrepressible Alexander Kan who invited the group and organized the visit against improbable odds. In 1988 Charles Amirkhanian turned the tables and invited Mr. Kan to the KPFA studio for a discussion. At the time, Mr. Kan was the leading Soviet producer of new music, avant-garde jazz, and experimental rock. The founder of the Leningrad Contemporary Music Club, (which throughout the late 1970s until it was banned in the 1980s, served as a solitary bastion of artistic free expression), is joined by Larry Ochs of ROVA, as they wend their way through an artistic motherlode of unofficial recordings made in performance during the 1980s. Musical selections heard range from free jazz performances by Aleksander Rjabov, Vladimir Chekasin, Sergeĭ Kurëkhin, and Anato...

Laurie discusses and plays the music of those who have influenced her through the years, including Ken Nordine, Bongo Joe, and Henry Fiol, as well as her immersion in...

6. radiOM.org - Zappa as DJ, 1968 [5.091% Popularity: 0.00000]
Zappa as DJ, 1968 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 97 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded in 1968, Tom Donahue interviews Frank Zappa about his life and work, and allows the irreverent rock star to present some of his favorite music. The ensuing free form program ranges from surf music, doo-wop, jazz, the blues, to the works of Pierre Boulez. The song selection is very informative for any fan of Zappa’s music, as one can easily trace the influence of all these styles on his own creative output, be it the cheesy harmonies of 1950s pop songs or the intricate percussive patterns of Boulez’s avant-garde classical compositions. The role that such songs had on Zappa’s own musical evolution is made all the more clear at the end of this hilarious program when a selection of satirical songs from the Mothers of Invention are also heard. Part 1 of 4: Musical Selections: Agency Man / Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention -- The Handsome Cabin Boy / [traditional] ...

This interview/lecture from 1984 is incredibly insightful for both Anderson fans and those who have fond memories of the experimentation being done in the form of challenging and intelligent "pop" songs during the early to mid-1980s. In Part 1 of this interview, recorded before a live audience of 1000 as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium's Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian speaks with Laurie Anderson about songs from her album, “Mister Heartbreak”.

During this event Rhys Chatham introduces two of his earlier compositions for multiple electric guitars, electric bass, and drums. In his introduction for the first work, an excerpt of “Guitar Trio,” Chatham tells how in the 1970s he was interested in minimalism but after hearing the band The Ramones perform he was inspired by their three cord punk songs to expand his own guitar compositions from one to two chords. The resulting work, “Guitar Trio” is a driving, pulsating, yet never quite overwhelming barrage of guitars and overtones, that never seems to get dull. Then after introducing the band, Chatham, jokingly...
10. radiOM.org - Rex Radio The Music of Bill Horvitz [1.423% Popularity: 0.00000]
Rex Radio: The Music of Bill Horvitz Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 61 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Phil Lesh and Gary Lambert present music from New York guitarist-composer Bill Horvitz. After a brief introduction a series of musical selections are heard including recordings of a jazz ensemble performing “The Mirrored Heart” and “The Way It Feels,” both recorded on December 5, 1986 at Roulette in New York City. Sandwiched in between these two ensemble performances are three compositions for solo electric guitar. The first, “Coyote Man in the Center of the Sun,” was commissioned for a celebration of the Summer Solstice, and was inspired by a Native American creation story. The second, “Archtypal Industry” is performed on a modified, or prepared, electric guitar capable of making sounds more reminiscent of bells than strings. The third solo piece incorporates a digitally looped guitar in the background as Horvitz utilizes a variety of kitchen utensils including a wire w...
