1. radiOM.org - A Celebration of Non-Commercial Radio [0.278% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Celebration of Non-Commercial Radio Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 182 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) This live broadcast from the then, brand new, KPFA building at 1929 Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Berkeley, California, aired nationally on NPR. It features the world premiere of Lou Harrison’s “Homage to Pacifica” (commissioned by the Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation), a six movement composition for narrator, soloists, mixed chorus, and Javanese gamelan ensemble. Also heard is a rare recording made in 1949, just after KPFA went on the air, in which Henry Cowell performed a number of his works on the KPFA grand piano. This program continues with Berkeley composer Gary Noland’s spectacular ragtime composition, “Grand Rag Brillante”, which is virtually impossible to be played by humans. Here it is heard played on KPFA’s Yamaha Disklavier, a type of modern player piano. The program concludes with the great, North Indian, virtuosi...
2. radiOM.org - A Concert of Experimental Music from England [5.877% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Concert of Experimental Music from England Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 102 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA On March 21, 1974 the San Francisco Conservatory New Music Ensemble under the direction of John Adams performed a concert of avant-garde and experimental music, by mostly young English composers. Works heard include an arrangement of an early 20th century waltz, a song based on a Chinese melody by Cornelius Cardew, and a rondo by Christopher Hobbs. Also heard are two pieces by Gavin Bryars, one inspired by the story of the Titanic, and another by a film of a London tramp singing an old hymn. Both of Bryars’ pieces, which he introduced himself, were accompanied by visual projections of pictures or films and have a beautiful yet haunting quality to them. Much of this work is based on reworkings of Victorian waltz melodies and sentimental salon pieces. Most of the pieces are consonant, some even very emotional. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: The Eden Valley Waltz (ca. 1900) (...
3. radiOM.org - A Concert of Live Electronic Music at U. C. San Diego (April 18, 1968) [5.822% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Concert of Live Electronic Music at U. C. San Diego (April 18, 1968) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 84 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA This is a recording of a concert of live electronic music presented at the University of California in San Diego on April 18, 1968, featuring works by Martin Bartlett, Toshi Ichiyanagi, and Anthony Gnazzo. The original concert program notes, written by Pauline Oliveros, states: For the past twenty years electronic music has been associated with magnetic tape and a stage devoid of performers. The equipment found in most classical electronic music studios was never intended for music-making but was adapted by composers and technicians interested in electronic sounds and in the electronic manipulation of sound. Now that technological media are no longer considered alien, and now that electronic pop has created a whole new era of live music, J. Petrillo’s fear in the 1940’s that canned music would replace the human performer seems unfounded. Pop musicians...

A Review of a Concert of Experimental Music from England Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 18 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian reviews a concert by the San Francisco Conservatory New Music Ensemble of avant-garde or experimental music, by mostly young English composers, which was held on March 21, 1974 and was to be repeated the next day. Excerpts of works heard include an arrangement of an early 20th century waltz, a song based on a Chinese melody by Cornelius Cardew, and a rondo by Christopher Hobbs. Also heard are segments of two pieces by Gavin Bryars, one inspired by the story of the Titanic, and another by a film of a London tramp singing an old hymn. Both of Bryars’ pieces, which he introduced himself, were accompanied by visual projections of pictures or films and have a beautiful yet haunting quality to them. Much of this work is based on re-workings of Victorian waltz melodies and sentimental salon pieces. Most of the pieces are consonant, some e...
5. radiOM.org - Cabrillo Music Festival 1979 Composers' Round Table [5.902% Popularity: 0.00000]
Cabrillo Music Festival: 1979 Composers' Round Table Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 89 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: KPFA From the 1979 Cabrillo Music Festival held in Aptos CA., Charles Amirkhanian moderates a discussion with composers, Virgil Thomson, Lou Harrison, Eric Stokes, Laurie Spiegel, Garrett List & Laurie Anderson. This fascinating conversation with such a variety of composers representing several generations and multiple musical styles touches on such topics as the role of electronics and amplification in the role of contemporary music; why do modern composers write music that the audience does not want to hear; inter-media performance art; how composing has changed in recent decades; simplicity vs. complexity in music; and how composers make enough money to compose. As this discussion clearly shows, the Cabrillo Music Festival has a deserved reputation for attracting some of the biggest names in contemporary classical and avant-garde music, providing a r...
6. radiOM.org - Charles Amirkhanian: Oratora Konkurso Rezulto (Portrait of Lou Harrison, 1970) [0.186% Popularity: 0.00000]
Charles Amirkhanian: Oratora Konkurso Rezulto (Portrait of Lou Harrison, 1970) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 15 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: C Amirkhanian Additional Media Files (click to view) An original text-sound composition by Charles Amirkhanian, produced at the KPFA studios and incorporating the sounds of the voice of Lou Harrison, recorded in his home in Aptos, CA, by KPFA Chief Engineer George Craig. Amirkhanian composed a cut-up text in Esperanto, a favorite language of Harrison's. Many of the phrases were taken from a contemporary newspaper written in that international language. Also intruding from time to time are ambient sounds of Mr. Harrison's household. The original monaural field recordings were mixed into a four-track master that was premiered on the first-ever four-channel broadcast, produced by two stations simultaneously: KPFA (Berkeley) and KSAN (San Francisco). This is an early iteration of Amirkhanian's experiments with the spoken word as material for tape...

Concerts by Composers: No. 05: Works by Arnold Dreyblatt, Dary John Mizelle, & Alison Knowles Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 57 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA In the late 1970s and early 1980s the Experimental Intermedia Foundation held a series of exciting concerts of avant-garde and electro-acoustic music at Phil Niblock’s loft in the SoHo district of New York City.

10. radiOM.org - Decay: A Work by Douglas Leedy [5.082% Popularity: 0.00000]
Decay: A Work by Douglas Leedy Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 42 min Event Type: Music A rare recording of Douglas Leedy’s “Decay,” a work of musical theater composed in 1965 and recorded at a concert of the San Francisco Conservatory Artist Ensemble in the mid to late 1960s. The musical portion of the piece consists of a tape work assembled from a number of old records of piano music by Leedy and his collaborator, Ian Underwood, which was then played while live musicians accompanied it on piano and other instruments. The exact nature of the dramatic portion of this performance is uncertain but apparently probably involved a number of females actors in bathrobes and curlers walking around the stage. Fortunately the music can easily stand on its own merits. Note: “Decay” recording begins as piece is in progress. Musical Selections: Sonata in B Flat Major, L. 498 [excerpt] (1:22) / Domenico Scarlatti -- Decay, a dramatic work with instrumental and tape accompaniment (1965) (35:31) / Douglas Leedy [...
