A Visit With John Zorn Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 68 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA John Zorn and Larry Ochs join Charles Amirkhanian to discuss and play a selection of Zorn’s compositions. Among the pieces heard is an excerpt from “Spillane” in which Zorn tries to capture some of the film noir sensibility that imbues the Mickey Spillane novels and the gritty New York City in which they are based, and which Zorn calls home. This is followed by a couple of excerpts from Zorn’s collaborative improvisational work “Cobra” for which he created a number of general rules which are then used by a group of talented musicians to create an ever changing kaleidoscope of sound events. Also included in this program is a portion of “Hu-Die”, a piece named for and inspired by the great Cantonese actress from the 1930s, as well as a recording of the well-known tabla player, Zakir Hussain.

Morning Concert: Alexander Kan: Mr. New Music USSR Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 123 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA When the ROVA Saxophone Quartet toured the Soviet Union in the mid-1980s, it was the enterprising and irrepressible Alexander Kan who invited the group and organized the visit against improbable odds. In 1988 Charles Amirkhanian turned the tables and invited Mr. Kan to the KPFA studio for a discussion. At the time, Mr. Kan was the leading Soviet producer of new music, avant-garde jazz, and experimental rock. The founder of the Leningrad Contemporary Music Club, (which throughout the late 1970s until it was banned in the 1980s, served as a solitary bastion of artistic free expression), is joined by Larry Ochs of ROVA, as they wend their way through an artistic motherlode of unofficial recordings made in performance during the 1980s. Musical selections heard range from free jazz performances by Aleksander Rjabov, Vladimir Chekasin, Sergeĭ Kurëkhin, and Anato...

8. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 15: Concert 3 [4.994% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 15: Concert 3 View Item Type: Video Duration: 107 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) The third and final concert of the 15th Other Minds Festival of New Music (OM 15) was held in San Francisco on March 6, 2010. Of all the three featured concerts of the 2010 Festival this may have been the most diverse. It began with the world premiere of Gyan Riley’s composition for jazz quartet, commissioned for this event by Other Minds. This is followed by two works by the long established minimalist composer Tom Johnson, who began his career as a music critic for the Village Voice before moving to Paris to pursue a full time career as a composer of works marked by their mathematical rigor and sonic complexity. The evening then concluded with another world premier, a nearly 40 minute romp through the early Industrial Revolution as interpreted by composer Carla Kihlstedt, who makes effective use of the often breathless accounts of various innovat...

Joining moderator Charles Amirkhanian on stage were, Gyan Riley, who is known for his guitar playing as well as composing, minimalist composer Tom Johnson, and violinist, composer, and indy rock personality Carla Kihlstedt. Johnson describes his fascination with minimal music, which for him means works with a limited number of notes, a single main idea, and often a mathematically based progression. Unlike the elegant simplicity of Johnson, Kihlstedt describes her composing style as “messy,” typically starting with a wide variety of ideas that are examined, aligned, and developed in a manner that she describes as ...
