This program includes a telephone interview with the 89 year old composer from London as well as interviews with a number of his relatives that live in the Bay Area. The program concludes with a promotion for the production of "The Flying Dutchman' by the Wagner Society of Northern California.

As a memorial tribute, Other Minds presents his appearance in front of a live audience as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series. Recorded on January 28 1988 at the Exploratorium, Raksin is interviewed by Charles Amirkhanian and takes questions from the audience. Perhaps the greatest film music composer of the 20th Century, Raksin discusses his work on “Laura”, “The Bad and the Beautiful” and other motion pictures; his studies with Arnold Schoenberg; and his efforts to document and preserve the history of film music.

A Concert of Contemporary Avant-Garde Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 69 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Selections from a concert of contemporary avant-garde music probably dating back to 1968 or thereabouts.

This is followed by Sylvano Bussotti’s “Sensitivo,” performed by a trio of musicians utilizing a variety of Oriental instruments, including bells, flute, and stringed instruments. “Credentials,” a avant-garde theatrical piece for actor and eight instruments is heard next, with Moran’s tortured monologue being accompanied by an unspecified instr...
10. radiOM.org - A Concert of Experimental Music from England [4.475% 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) (...
