1. radiOM.org - MOCA/FM Museum of Conceptual Art: Opening of a New Space [6.193% Popularity: 0.00000]
MOCA/FM: Museum of Conceptual Art: Opening of a New Space Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 30 min Event Type: Inter-Media and Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA “On Wednesday, January 3, 1973, the Museum of Conceptual Art opened its doors across the street from its previous space in San Francisco. The new address (75 Third Street) is above the Breen’s Bar where many previous showings by MOCA have occurred. In this dingy loft, previously used by a printing company, about 500 artists and viewers gathered between 7pm and 11pm expecting to witness a startling new show by the museum’s curator Tom Marioni. Instead, they were left staring at each other and a less than adequate quantity of bottled Fisher beer. By the time I arrived at 9 pm, the two turkeys and other delicacies placed near the entrance were nothing more than grisly carcasses and empty plates. Here are the sounds of the crowd at that event, an interview with Director Tom Marioni and his mother from Cincinnati, Ohio, and a long recording of the...

3. radiOM.org - John Cage and David Tudor in Concert in San Francisco, Jan. 16, 1965 [5.116% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage and David Tudor in Concert in San Francisco, Jan. 16, 1965 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 75 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded by KPFA Radio on the 39th birthday of David Tudor, this historic concert with John Cage thundered through the halls of the sculpture court of the San Francisco Museum of Art before a capacity audience that included the late Darius Milhaud in his wheelchair and other Bay Area arts dignitaries. The volume levels were raucous and the medium of live electronic music never more vibrant. Opening with a work performed on a single cymbal with contact microphones agitated by a wide gamut of objects, and concluding with “Variations IV” in which loudspeakers outside the performance space in various hallways interacted with speakers next to the audience, this was truly an affair to remember. Our thanks to the John Cage Trust, C.F. Peters Music Publishing, Christian Wolff and the Estate of David Tudor for their cooperation in allowing us to revive this long...

An Interview with Tom Marioni Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 8 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA In April of 1970 Tom Marioni founded the Museum of Conceptual Art in San Francisco. In this interview, recorded on April 21, 1970 in the KPFA studio, Charles Amirkhanian questions Marioni about this project, which is less a museum than it is a space for the presentation of performance art and temporary conceptual art installations, as well as a sponsor for street theater and theoretical discussions about the possibilities of human expression. The first “show” at the Museum entailed the audience helping to paint the walls, while the next show was scheduled to be a “concert” by ten sound sculptors. (An event that was recorded and can be heard on the program “Sound Sculpture As” on radiOM.org, one of many such programs produced by Marioni and made available by Other Minds) Genre: Modern Art Subject: Marioni, Tom, 1937- ; Museum of Conceptual Art (San Francisco, CA) ; Conceptual art ; Art, Mo...

Ode To Gravity: Tom Marioni Retrospective Show 1959 - 1973 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 22 min Event Type: Inter-Media and Visual Arts Program Origin: KPFA This recording documents the works of Tom Marioni, from 1959 to 1973. Marioni was the founder of the Museum of Conceptual Art of San Francisco (MOCA-SF), and the force behind a number of interesting programs found on radiOM.org. The reader heard in this recording is Marioni, who details his works in prose form. The statement was read at a show in Cambridge, MA., at Project Incorporated on February 13, 1973, and this document was prepared especially as a radio version of the same “piece”. Marioni has been concerned with sound sculpture and body sculpture and has done much to promote the works of other avant-garde visual artists.
