1. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity The Eventide Harmonizer and Henry Kaiser [7.258% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: The Eventide Harmonizer and Henry Kaiser Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 112 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded on September 14, 1981, Charles Amirkhanian gets a demonstration of the Eventide Clockworks Harmonizer from Laurie Anderson. The Harmonizer is the piece of equipment that Anderson has used, with such great effect, to lower the pitch of her voice in real time, during her concerts. Amirkhanian then interviews Richard Factor, the co-inventor of this ingenious device, in his busy New York City office. Amirkhanian also presents brief interviews with Margaret Jory, Director of the American Music Center, the United States’ official information center and repository for contemporary classical music; and with Phill Niblock, composer and director of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation, and who was preparing to broadcast his, “Concerts for Composers,” a collection of live performances recorded in Niblock’s New York City loft.

2. radiOM.org - Henry Kaiser interviews Derek Bailey (Dec. 7, 1989) [7.230% Popularity: 0.00000]
Henry Kaiser interviews Derek Bailey (Dec. 7, 1989) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 122 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: C Amirkhanian From a program recorded on December 7, 1989, Henry Kaiser interviews fellow avant-garde jazz guitarist Derek Bailey. Bailey is an English guitarist who started out as a rather conventional commercial session player, but in the early 1960s he met Gavin Bryars and other experimental avant-garde musicians and soon forged his own unique style of guitar playing. His distinctive playing typically features unusual notes and timbres, often in unique juxtaposition to each other, as well as different collections of intervals not normally emphasized by more mainstream musicians. Kaiser, a talented guitarist himself, interrogates Bailey about his various techniques, getting into the details of spacing, fingering, and the interplay between consciousness intention and free improvisation, posing the question; does one think what to play, or think about what you...
3. radiOM.org - Static: An Avant-Garde Pop Song by Sheila Davies [5.091% Popularity: 0.00000]
Static: An Avant-Garde Pop Song by Sheila Davies Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 4 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: C Amirkhanian A recording of the song “Static,” composed and performed by Sheila Davies, with musical accompaniment provided by Fred Frith and Henry Kaiser. Firmly placed in the genre of avant-garde pop music of the 1980s, this brief yet engaging song is somewhat reminiscent of the work of Laurie Anderson, Pamela Z, and Amy X. Neuburg. It features half spoken lyrics and sparse jazz fusion like instrumentation, all combined with those electronic sounds of a 1980s synth-pop band. This work was originally recorded in San Francisco with the final mix and voice recording with an Effectron done at KPFA radio, and was produced by Charles Amirkhanian with assistance by Susan Stone. Musical Selections: Static (ca. 1983) (3:36) / Sheila Davies Performers: Sheila Davies, vocals Henry Kaiser Fred Frith Genres: Popular Music ; New Music Subject: Popular music ; Songs with instrumental ensemb...

8. radiOM.org - Terry Riley Day: Interview [5.071% Popularity: 0.00000]
Terry Riley Day: Interview Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 107 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA On June 24, 1985, as part of a fundraising marathon, KPFA celebrated Terry Riley’s 50th birthday by dedicating an entire day to his music. Part of those celebrations included this in-studio interview with the composer, in which he discusses his life and work with Charles Amirkhanian, Russ Jennings, and others. Topics covered include just intonation, repetitive or minimal music, and the influence of Indian vocalist Pandit Pran Nath on Riley’s music. Listeners called in with heart felt congratulations and questions, as fellow composers Henry Kaiser and John Adams stopped by to pay tribute to one of America’s, and Northern California’s, most influential composers. A few musical excerpts of Riley’s work are also heard, including a clip from the premiere performance of his seminal work “In C” which is often credited as the first composition written in the minimal or repetitive style t...
9. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 11, Concert 2: 01 "Son of Metropolis San Francisco" by Charles Amirkhanian [5.069% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 11, Concert 2: 01 "Son of Metropolis San Francisco" by Charles Amirkhanian Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 28 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) OM 11 presented a 60th birthday tribute to Other Minds founding artistic director Charles Amirkhanian featuring the San Francisco concert premiere of his radiophonic tape piece, “Son of Metropolis San Francisco”. The work is a part-abstract, part-representational audio snapshot of idiosyncratic Bay Area sounds, ranging from barking elephant seals at Ano Nuevo Beach to a runaway overflow valve next to a hot tub at Harbin Hot Springs. In between, listeners hear Tongan gardeners, a Chinese sitcom, and conga drummers at Ocean Beach, manipulated on a Synclavier digital synthesizer and ultimately offset by a hypnotic and meditative organ chorale. Originally commissioned by Studio 3 Hörspiel of the West German Radio in Cologne, and New American Radio for the NPR satellite system, the ...
10. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 1: Concert 3 (Nov. 6, 1993) [5.049% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 1: Concert 3 (Nov. 6, 1993) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 107 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds The third concert of the inaugural Other Minds Festival of New Music (OM 1), was held on November 6, 1993 at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. Reversing the order of the printed program the concert began with “A Berkelium Canon,” a digital pianistic tribute to Nicolas Slonimsky on his 97th birthday with the title also referring to the then newly discovered 97th element of the periodic table, (the proper pronunciation of which Amirkhanian appeals to the audience to no avail). This is followed by a selection of Studies for Player Piano by Conlon Nancarrow most of which had never before been performed publicly. These include three rolls found in a box by Nancarrow’s assistant and since they were thought to be somehow connected are presented here under the title “The Trilogy.” They are followed by a brief untitled piece and then “Study No. 37” a relatively l...
