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

Pionees of Tape Manipulation

On this episode of A Different Nature, who'll explore artists and pieces that best exemplify the manipulation of found sound via magnetic tape.

Tape Manipulation distinguishes itself from similar genres involving magnetic tape such as Tape Music, Musique Concrete or Electro-Acoustic Music in that it utilizes found sound and recontextualizes it, either artistically or to make a counter, ironic statement, rather than something recorded by the artist specifically for manipulation.

It's an art-form that is literally as old as the medium itself, as we'll attempt to demonstrate in this episode.

Interview with Homer Flynn of The Residents

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.

Dynamic 1970 lp, originally co-released by the “Municipalidad de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires”, the “Secretaria de Cultura” and the “ls 1 Radio Municipal de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires” in a tiny internally-distributed edition, consisting of four extended pieces by Argentinian composers Hilda Dianda, Nelly Moretto, and Luis María Serra from the tail-end of the 1950s through the end of the 1960s.

Hilda Dianda’s opening piece “a-7” - ...a lone cello plucks out an atonal array of notes with the eruption of tape-sound. On her “Dos Estudios en Oposición” the tape-sounds are left to themselves.

On the “flip”, Nelly Moretto introduces her “Composición 9b”, a creepy blend of spoken word/sound-poetry with filtered noise and extensive tape processing, occasionally piling up into a giant jumble of disembodied voices; a spectral choir.

Finally, Luis María Serra’s “Invocation” works a few dissonant plucked guitar notes & string-scrapes into a powerfull morass of shifting pings and grinding metal; a notable guitar/electronic forebear.

Anar Band (Portugal) was a project by Jorge Lima Barreto (1949), who had been performing interventions in experimental and jazz music, video art and performance-art since the late sixties; graduated in Art History and doctorate in Musicology and Social Communication Theory, he wrote several books and produced radio shows.

Anar Band was a laboratorial group for improvisations, in the aesthetics of the free-jazz and electroacoustics.

Produced and recorded in 1976, Anar Band was, on an electroacoustic profile, the first Portuguese record of improvised music, clearly committed as such.Formed by Jorge Lima Barreto (who would be from 1981 onwards one of the halves of Telectu, the other being Vítor Rua) and Rui Reininho (later the lead singer with avant-garde pop group GNR), this is a true trip into the inner realms of the mind, fuelled by jazz rock leanings and electronics – the ARP Odyssey synthesizer also reminds us that from here to prog rock is sometimes a small step.

This is a truly original work of art.

host: Andy Hosch /// This evening we bring you the second in a six part series on the music of composer and conductor Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris, recognized internationally as the principal theorist and practitioner in the evolution of Conduction, and a leading innovator in the confluence of jazz, new music, improvisation and contemporary classical music. Butch’s work redefines the role of composer, conductor, arranger and performer and bridges the gap between the composer, interpreter and improviser. Over the last 25 years Morris has led over 180 Conductions in cities around the world. In this second installment, we will hear conductions which feature traditional instruments from Turkey and China, along with Western instruments and electronics

This series will continue on the 1st Monday of each month (with the possible exception of April, when it may be preempted by special Membership Drive programming). Also, I am arranging to do an interview with Butch Morris which we hope to air later in the series. So tune in and get ready to check out some truly amazing sounds. Visit Butch Morris's website at http://www.conduction.us/ and also go to http://blackfeb.com to learn about the recently released documentary film, "Black February" which follows a month long series of Conduction performances in New York during February, 2005 celebrating the 20th anniversary since of  of Morris' first Conduction.

The following is an excerpt taken from the book Arcana II (John Zorn, et al.) as reprinted in the liner notes to the double CD "conduction/induction" (Rai Trade, 2007).  I think it is very informative to hear, in Butch Morris' own words, his description of the principles of Conduction and of his overall artistic philosophy:

“For more than 20 years through Conduction, I have had the privilege to engage and enjoy, from the inside, this intermediate space between notation and improvisation, acquiring new skills and perspectives while doing so.

The context, of course, has been polarized by history and practice: musicians and musical communities bound by notation and musicians and musical communities bound by improvisation. Yet between them is the space where a potential for new life, an expansive range of expression that has gone untouched, prevails; and where ideals and ideas incubate for the continuum of the ‘musical’ canon.

Conduction®: a vocabulary of ideographic signs and gestures activated to modify or construct a real-time musical arrangement (of any notation) or composition. Each sign and gesture transmits generative information for interpretation and provides instantaneous possibilities for altering or initiating harmony, melody, rhythm, articulation, phrasing or form.

Conduction concerns transmission, communication and expression; a common ground where all culture and style cohabit, not only by way of their distinctiveness, but also in how each contributes, in the ensemble, to a unique encounter. More intimately, it concerns a capacity of musicianship for new skills with new principles.

The vocabulary of Conduction is symbolic information (directives: signs and gestures) that carry definition and meaning to propel musicians toward substantive understanding and achievement.  It provides the precision and the focus needed to navigate music’s vast terrain.

The principles of Conduction foster, enhance and evoke the analytical reasoning of each musician’s history, knowledge, intelligence, experience, instinct, intuition, expression, will and fantasy as fundamental requirement.

In Conduction, the art of composition and the immediacy of performance become interdependent -- while the language of music cultivates and integrates all vernaculars and traditions open to, and in, the ensemble.

Results are ever present: enhanced musicianship; discovery of structure and substance in the arc of the performance; the evolution of a social logic based on new reciprocities between human and music, and between composer and conductor, conductor as composer, instrumentalist and conductor, instrumentalist and composer -- and audience, attaining new levels of momentary logic and new clarities about the character of the work itself.

Now, this bridge that Conduction builds between notation and improvisation fuels interest. For with it, I can identify, embrace and exploit the weaknesses and strengths of both together and depict, in the process, core limitations in either. Conduction also requires its realization in physical, rather than theoretical, form to facilitate (new) kinds of augmentation. The logic of circumstance(s) dictates the maximizing of encounter, and the musical and social structures that grow from such encounter.

Conduction is vivacious in that it draws on the full expanse of musical design while asking of its musicians that they refine their capacities beyond style and cultural aesthetic or social difference.

There are as many rewards as questions here but none, it seems, as significant as that which opens pathways, both individually and collectively; pathways shuttered previously by custom or fear. And I refer to the exclusionary focus of most musical traditions and to the fear of compromising identity.

Conduction, however, is not in contestation with given forms as much as it seeks to supplement them with a greater appreciation of possibility --  a capacity for dialogue uniquely spurred by the moments and movements that appear and vanish.

At the same time, by stripping away predispositions to value this or that in music, we also construct a mirror to the kinds of relationships that subsist in society, and the wherewithal of music to challenge and transform them; a community in microcosm that functions via this dynamic.

Conduction is neither method nor process, but practicum that reveals only in practice and through all its metaphorical concepts.

A sonic arena utilizing every tool in its arsenal to construct, deconstruct and reconstruct with and from the basic properties of pitch, duration, intensity and timbre. Primed by an ‘Extra Dimension,’ which motivates us to engage and respond within, as beyond, all territory, Conduction invokes a continuum that thrives in a real-time transmission of relationships and meaning; the spontaneity and precision that we need to ignite and combust order and organization within sonic thought.

From the conductor’s perspective, Conduction is the art of “environing,” the organization of surrounding things, conditions or influences. It is a technique to capture and discover sonic information, structure and sub-structure, meaning, implication and expression (as we construct together) -- all primary values in our pursuit of coherence and poignancy, and the immediacy of place.

From the perspective of the instrumentalist, the musician learns that Conduction is ensemble skill, and that  Conduction’s criteria drive attentiveness, discrimination, understanding, perception and execution. Each sign in the Conduction Vocabulary has definition, yet within that definition each musician is obliged to qualitatively define its ‘content’. The descriptive (vocabulary) thus generates prospect; and by virtue of the definition attached to each sign, each interpretation evolves by progressive self-development through historical and momentary orientation.

To contribute to Conduction, the musician reveals explicit content within the evolving work. As such, musical flexibility and potential expand as we explore a new condition of liberty to foster individual and collective freedoms in real time.

A state of risk, certainly; a distillation of immediacy, no doubt; the incarnation of a step in the evolution of music that each musician embodies – this is a goal.

Conduction is an art that flowers in contradiction (for some), ambiguity (for others) and encounter (for all involved). By constructing, deconstructing and contrasting composition at will, we forge an intermediate space, both intensive and extensive, for the evolution of ensemble music, and for a new virtuoso thus versed.

In this way, Conduction opens a range of possibility previously unknown, just barely known or in what we know all too well. After all, Conduction is a way to explore music as we make it -- a probe to mine music and the ensemble at its most basic levels.

All in all, what we have here is the evolution of a model of empirical form; a way to contribute to the musical continuum as possibility and a (new) musical responsibility where the collective determines the experience of symbolic sonic stimuli; where all forms of notation, improvisation, style and thought combine to establish a unique constellation of momentary logic (improvisation); where consciences can mature in a perfectly working precision that can never reach what is traditionally known as perfection.”

                                                                                                 --LAWRENCE D. “BUTCH” MORRIS

On Dec. 20th, A Different Nature presents three radio plays by Andreas Ammer and F.M. Einheit (from Einstürzende Neubauten, Gry and his own solo work).

From 1993, comes Ammer and Einheit's Radio Inferno, a realization of Dante's Inferno - a dizzying audio collage utilizing found music to set the scene of Virgil's descent through hell. Voices by Blixa Bargeld (also of Einstürzende Neubauten), Phil Minton and the late John Peel as 'The Radio'. Also with guitarwork by Caspar Brötzmann.

In 1996, Ammer and Einheit collaborated on an ambitious and controversial piece entitled Deutsche Krieger, a bizarre and disturbing tryptich portraying three influential Germans, in their respective popular mediums: Part One: Kaiser Wilhelm Overdrive (grammophone), Part Two: Adolf Hitler Enterprise (radio) and Part Three: Ulrike Meinhof Paradise (television), with all three tied together by leitmotif of Beethoven's 5th Symphony.

And finally, in 2001, mere months before the tragic events of 9/11, Ammer and Einheit took to the skies to look at Crashing Aeroplanes, an unsettling audio collage/radio play made up of aircraft black box recordings, air disaster reporting. Probably not something you'd want to put on the iPod of a white-knuckle air traveller. This piece as commissioned by the European Broadcasting Union. In the wake of September 11th, the CD release was delayed by nearly a year, but, despite that, it was awarded the "Hörspielpreis der Kriegsblinden", Germany's highest award for radioplays.

Tonight we listen to the music of Igor Wakhevitch.  On top of composing music for Salvador Dali's 1974 opera "Etre Dieu," Wakhevitch released six records in the 1970s. The Swan's Michael Gira said of Wakhevitch "The most astonishing music I have heard in some years... Ominous and beautiful, then clamorous and Wagnerian," while a Pitchfork review of one Wakhevitch's records, "Docteur Faust," was titled "It Was the Strangest Record I Had Ever Heard."  While sections of the Dali Opera have been and will be aired on Desolo Vox Luna Theatrum, I thought it'd be nice to hear from those 6 albums released in the 1970s. These albums were also reissued several years ago as the 6-CD set "Donc" by the Fractal label. 

The orginal albums with year of release:

 1970  Logos (rituel sonore)

1971  Docteur Faust

1973 Hathor (liturgie du souffle pour la resurerection des morts)

1975 Les Fous d'Or

1977 Nagual (les ailes de la perception)

1979 Let's Start

Tonight's broadcast was dedicated to important Mexcan avant garde composers.

The group "Musica de Camara" (Chamber Music, Camera Music) presented recordings from the Hispano - Mexican Collection of Contemporary Music, Number 6.

Untitled, and ASA ISO 100, 21o (this last one performed by Antonio Russek) used exclusively sounds generated by photographic cameras. Voice Concerto uses parts of a poem by James Joyce. 

Master Pez is the same piece with two versions, one for harp, and treated harp, the other for organ, clarinet and flute; Mascleta y Fuga was composed using harpsichord with fireworks sounds recorded in Spain, with the collaboration of Samir Menaceri.

Manuel Enriquez, Hector Quintanar, and Mario Lavista, members of the Mexican Society of Contemporary Music, presented compositions from a record produced in 1973, under the same title and label; a portion of the back cover is presented on the bottom of this page.

Oscar Vargas Leal and David Espejo, students of Julian Carrillo played Cromometrofonia, a composition for Microtonal Harps built by Carrillo, on another album from 1973;  front cover is shown on the top of this playlist.

Oxomatli (monkey), 1971, by Federico Alvarez del Toro is a composition for orchestra, chorus and magnetic tape, based / inspired on the mating sounds of monkeys in the jungle of Oaxaca.

The poems by Juan Jose Tablada are part of the collection Voz Viva de Mexico, and include electroacustic sounds by Manuel Enriquez.

 Please follow the links to the right of credits to enjoy an example of this music, and perhaps find more..

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
