5. radiOM.org - Excuse Me, But Are There Any Protozoa In This Pond? by Peg Ahrens [3.599% Popularity: 0.00000]
Excuse Me, But Are There Any Protozoa In This Pond? by Peg Ahrens Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 22 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA This is a live, feedback piece, performed by Maggi Payne, Robin Kirck and composer Peg Ahrens, and was mixed by Rich Gold. Originally recorded at Mills College on April 27, 1974, the work consists of audio feedback, most likely resulting from five microphones placed or moved in front of a number of speakers, that was then controlled and mixed by an audio engineer. At times sounding like an amplified glass harmonica and at other times like a subdued Hendrix guitar solo, this piece is really a quite remarkable composition utilizing a very basic, yet highly versatile, form of electronic sound generation. The sounds never get too loud or out of control, and in the end lend themselves to a slightly meditative atmosphere. Musical Selections: Excuse Me, But Are There Any Protozoa In This Pond? / Peg Ahrens Performers: Maggi Payne, feedback Robin Kirck, feedback P...

Kelley, New York Times jazz critic and NYU African Studies professor, "…pushes the African rhythms to the foreground and always tries to work within a framework true to the source, whether it's the West African dance music called highlife or sacred songs from Morocco. These forms fit seamlessly in a jazz context precisely because, in Mr. Weston's words, ‘the music that is called jazz ... for me is really an extension of African culture.'" Hearing African Rhythms is like, "witnessing a joyous, sacred ceremony." "Amanda Piasecki “Their set began with the very powerful and evocative "African Cookbook", from the band's 1991 album The Spirit of Our Ancestors, which...
