Morning Concert: The Music of Vincent Plush (1983) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 83 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded in 1983, Charles Amirkhanian is joined in the KPFA studios by the Australian composer Vincent Plush, who was in the United States for an extended fellowship at Yale University. Amirkhanian questions Plush about his personal history and musical influences, as well as the current state of contemporary classical music in Australia. Plush describes a growing trend among younger Australian composers, who, inspired by the likes of Percy Grainger and Peter Sculthorpe, were seeking to create a truly Australian form of music. Music that is informed by their common history as European convicts and cast-offs, a connection with the indigenous population, and close proximity to Indonesia and other East Asian countries. The first composition heard in this program, “Bakery Hill Rising” is reflective of this tendency, as it commemorates one of the f...

Morning Concert: Ivan Wyschnegradsky: A Memorial Tribute Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 130 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) On September 29, 1979, Ivan Wyschnegradsky died in Paris at the age of 86. Only in the last two years of his life did he become widely recognized in Europe for his contributions to the repertoire. Since the early 1920s he had composed in various microtonal systems in an attempt to expand the possibilities of musical expression. Presented in this program is the first American broadcast of Wyschnegradsky’s early (1916-17) mystical work “La Journee de l’Existence”. The performance, commissioned and recorded by Radio France, is stirring and extremely beautiful. In addition Charles Amirkhanian presents the first radio broadcast of his last interview with Wyschnegradsky, recorded at the composer’s Paris studio on June 4, 1976.

Ode To Gravity: An Eclectic Mix of World, Word & Contemporary Classical Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From November 1992, Charles Amirkhanian introduces an elegant and eclectic mix of world, spoken word, and contemporary classical music. The program begins with the haunting vocals of Iranian-born Sussan Deyhim performing “Navai” a setting for Sufi poetry influenced by Persian classical and folk melodies. This is followed by an extended version of Glen Velez’s “White-Throated Sparrow” a work for percussion and bansuri flute. The next work is a collaboration between Gavin Bryars and Juan Muñoz in which the devious technique of dealing from the bottom of the deck is explained as the dulcet tones of a string quartet gently play in the background. Canadian-born sound poet Paul Dutton then shows just how many different sounds a human being can make without the aid of any instruments, in his thoroughly enjoyable “Beyond Doo-Wop or How I ...

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. Raksin's rapier wit is everywhere in evidence and makes for a most entertaining program.

7. 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.
