Phill Niblock describes his interest in composing works with long sustained tones and how they are typically accompanied by films of his own making. Michael Nyman, who has composed numerous movie soundtracks, talks about how often music can not be tied down to a certain time or geographical location. For example, in the movie “The Piano” his decidedly 20th century compositions were based on traditional Scottish melodies and were used to accompany images of a life in 19th century New Zealand, while other works by him have been used as film scores for cinema vérité films shot in Moscow and Manhattan during the 1920s.

Ode To Gravity: Survival of the Fiddle: Music by Steve Reich & Michael Sahl Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 55 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Two avant-garde works for violin, played by one of the world’s leading musicians, Paul Zukofsky. In a “Mitzvah for the Dead, for Violin and Tape”, Michael Sahl has written a piece in four movements which recalls tonal music as a possibility for usage in not merely collage snippets, but as an important element basic to the conception of the work. In the second work, “Violin Phase” by Steve Reich, the composer takes samples of sound and subjects them to a sort of magnification that provides the listener with the opportunity to notice elements that would normally be lost. The entire work is generated out of less than sixty seconds of material. It is suggested that the listener suppress any initial desire to turn it off, but to rather increase the volume, sit comfortably, relax, and let go. Notice the combinations formed by the overlapping of the ele...
