A Different Nature

A Different Nature Mission Statement: A Sustained Explorations of New, Experimental Music and Sonic Art
A Different Nature is a curatorial program of genre-defying avant garde music and spoken word that champions historic and modern sound art and spotlights, new, emergent experimental music and audio art generally not heard anywhere else.
The program's format provides the space for deep listening to pieces not confined to pop song lengths and shows are generally focused on an artist, school of music or discipline, record label or art movement.

A Different Nature is a collaborative effort of the ADN Collective, who each curate a show every week on an informal rotating basis, or a group show, depending on the subject at hand.

A Different Nature was founded in the late Seventies by Richard Francis, who fearlessly championed new music and the unheard Avant Garde. His programs went into exhaustive detail on individual artists, labels and musical disciplines. He also spearheaded many important events on the air, such as the 2001 and 2008 Dada and Surrealism festivals that dominated the airwaves for days on end and involved many in the local avant garde community as well as many KBOO programmers.

Richard passed away in 2009 but it's our hope to carry on with his mission of introducing listeners to unheard new music as a collective of his collaborators and listeners.

Long live Papa Dada!

Airs every Monday from 8 to 10 PM

Experimental China

EXPERIMENTAL CHINA:  We explore some of the recent experimental music to come out of China in the last decade. Until the late 1990s, most Chinese were isolated from the expermental music scene happening in the West, but with the internet, things changed at the dawn of the new century, when the avant garde scene exploded..  On this show we will hear a variety of experimental sounds, from harsh noise electronics to ambient soundscapes and other stuff, drawing mostly from a couple of CD compilations, the two-disc CHINA:. THE SONIC AVANT-GARDE, and the four-CD 1992-2008 AN ANTHOLOGY OF CHINESE EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC. Hosted by Rolf .

Music of ADN Collective member Andrew Hosch; host: Daniel

ADN Collective member Andrew Hosch created a large body of experimental sounds in his home studio during the 1980s and 90s.    During these years he was a devoted listener to Richard Francis' "A Different Nature" program here on KBOO.  The music Richard played had a significant influence on the development of Andy's work. Later, Richard had Andy as a guest on the program, and aired some of his music from time to time. Tonight Andy will bring in a selection of things never before heard on KBOO ---- host: Daniel Flessas

Strange Sounds From Sheffield: A Look at Cabaret Voltaire

A look at the Dada-infused group from Sheffield UK, Cabaret Voltaire.
Cabaret Voltaire formed in 1973, around Richard H. Kirk, Stephen Mallinder and Chris Watson. Initially utilizing minimal electronics and tape to make their highly original sounds, they eventually incorporated Funk, dance and Dub in the mix and released numerous singles, EPs and albums.
Watson left the group in the early 80's to pursue a career in television and has since gained acclaim as an environmental sound recordist.
Cabaret Voltaire's output slowed to a crawl in the Nineties and there has yet to be a proper CV recording in this century.
Richard H. Kirk continues to put out releases under his own name, as Sandoz, Biochemical Dread and more.

Music not from instruments...

TONIGHT ON "A DIFFERENT NATURE" from 8 to 10 pm: PHONOGRAPHY and Music from things other than instruments.

Gino Robair says, "Phonography, as a sound art, is by it's nature improvisatory. It gives us more than one chance to hear the sounds of a moment, and, often, more than one way to hear them." But rather than just playing field recordings, tonight Danielle explores the possibilities people have found in creating music from objects and other sources than traditional instruments. Car horns, credit card machines, photocopiers, shiphorns, telephone wires, bottles... Sometimes there are moments of beauty, sometimes insane cacophony. Inspired madness? You decide.

Interview with Homer Flynn of The Residents

program: 
A Different Nature
program date: 
Mon, 02/18/2013

 For forty years, the San Francisco Avant-Garde band The Residents have basked in relative obscurity, much of it self-imposed. Their earliest modus operandi had them creating works under their 'theory of obscurity', first coined by N. Senada, who may or may not be an actual person. One aspect of the theory is that a work is created with the intent of never releasing a work until every participant has forgotten about it - or something like that.

Another aspect of the Residents is that they've kept their real identity a secret for many decades, with a few people speaking on their behalf in a business capacity who may or may not be Residents themselves.. Hmmm..

We did, however, manage to get Homer Flynn, The Resident's creative director and visual Major Domo on the phone, while he was, uh, helping the band on the Eastern leg of their Wonder of Weird 40th Anniversary tour.

Homer was more than generous with his time and lots of questions get answered, including a long-time rumour around KBOO's history.

But I'll let you listen to that yourself.

"I just walked into the room and hear a high-pitched whine. Is there something wrong with the antenna. You mean this is supposed to be music? It's not music, it's just a high pitch whine. Are you the idiot that programmed this? Do you think people are going to be entertained by this shit? You're taking up valuable air time with this. YOU'RE A FUCKING IDIOT!"

Part five of our six-part series on Butch Morris and Conduction.  We start off this week with an interview recorded for Vermont Public Radio [VPR] in November of 2007 so that listeners can learn more about Morris and the theories behind his concept of Conduction in the composer's own voice.  The interviewer is George Thomas, and also sitting in is Don Glasgo, leader of Dartmouth University's student jazz ensemble "Barbary Coast".  The interview is a bit over 30 minutes in duration. Anyone who missed the interview or would like to hear it again can find it archived at VPR's website: http://www.vpr.net/episode/42045/

A DIFFERENT NATURE presents

 A TRIBUTE to PANDIT PRAN NATH --

A 3 HOUR special on A Different Nature (To read more about Pandit Pran Nath and the American avant-garde underground, here is an excellent article -- http://www.bidoun.org/magazine/20-bazaar/lord-of-the-drone-pandit-pran-nath-and-the-american-underground-by-alexander-keefe/.) 

The first 2 hours were dedicated to 4 compositions --4 Portland area composers offering their piece in tribute to or inspired by Pandit Pran Nath

1.  Air Objects by John Berendzen   24:30

2.  Planetary Sine Wave Organ by Derek Ecklund  30:30

3.  Referent  by Scott Goodwin  24:00

4.  Raindrop Garden by Matt Carlson  10:00     

The last hour of the broadcast was indeed very special, even historic, as Michael Stirling sang/performed a raga live in the KBOO studios with accompaniment from Derek Ecklund and Kelly Jennings, each playing a tambura, and Aran Adams on tablas.

Here's what Michael had to say about this raga:  "i dedicate my offering to Shamsudin Faridi Desai, a music family friend from Dehli who passed on 8/16 - one of the last living masters of the Binkar in the tradition of Mian Bande Ali Khan - the great Binkar of the Kirana tradition.  He and sarangi virtuoso and Khalifa of the Kirana Gharana, Ustad Hafizullah Khan were inspiriations and their classical music will never be duplicated - as Terry Riley said of Faridi, a Ghandarva!

To listen, enjoy, and paint the inside of your mind with peace and the walls of your home with a deep resonant ommmmmmmmmmmm, click on this : http://www.soundmaps.net/pandit_pran_nath.html

have a nice trip.
