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

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.

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..

Tonight's A Different Nature was a joint effort, celebrating as we were Dia de los Muertos - or Day of the Dead. This was a long-held tradition held by A Different Nature founder Richard Francis, who flew away from us around this time in 2009. Richard's Dia de los Muertos parties were legendary and I dare say, we at least tried and had one heck of a good time.

In attendance were Grace Marion, Christine Homitsu-White, Lyn, Andy Hosch, Rolf and I - plus numerous guests (and invited ghosts).

Andy, Rolf, Grace and I took turns at the board, selecting and playing appropriate songs.

A Different Nature on 10/04: The music of Shockabilly - Hosted by Rich L.

Rising out of the ashes of avant-garde guitarist Eugene Chadbourne's 70's experimental ensemble projects - including such alumni as John Zorn, Tom Cora, Fred Frith and others - Shockabilly reunited Chadbourne with bass and keyboard player Mark Kramer and percussionist David Licht. The band toured as The Chadbournes, playing a goofy hybrid of jazz, country, bluegrass and psychedelic rock with various sundry musicians joining in (most notably Zorn and Cora). The group eventually was distilled into the trio of Chadbourne, Kramer and Licht, touring along the punk/indy rock network under the somewhat ambiguously descriptive name Shockabilly.

They recorded their first EP on Halloween of 1982. It was a weirdly disjointed collection of covers of rockabilly, garage punk, country songs, with a Beatles cover thrown in for good measure. All songs would shift in tempo, style and not too infrequently fall apart under a fuzzy haze of intense guitar freakout. This seems to have established the M.O. for subsequent albums by them. Shockabilly would run cherished music from the Sixties Billboard charts through their crazed blender, rendering a Hendrix song into a bluegrass breakdown, a Roger Miller song into a demented opera. Occasional originals were often paeans to bad trips or psychedelic ephemera. Shockabilly sounded like the weird little transitional bits in the margins of Mothers of Invention albums or perhaps like an old radio that would shift frequencies suddenly and without warning.

"...Following their hysterical live performances, no attendee could say they had no feelings about what they had just heard. one barfly in Alabama even threatened to go home, get his shotgun, and blow Chadbourne's brains out after hearing the manner in which Chadbourne played a guitar solo in a Hank Williams song. Now THAT's Entertainment..." Shimmydisc website

Shockabilly toured Europe, across the USA and spent time with the not-too-dissimilar Butthole Surfers - all hilariously documented in Chadbourne's tour diaries, which were excerpted in a huge poster included in Shockabilly's penultimate album Vietnam.

Shortly after the release of their final album, Heaven, in 1985, the band broke up. Chadbourne released a torrent of homemade solo LPs and handmade cassettes out of his Greensboro North Carolina home. Kramer went on to form Bongwater with performance artist and Goddess Ann Magnuson and rise to prominence as a producer. David Licht briefly played skins in Bongwater, while also joining such bands as B.A.L.L., When People Were Shorter And Lived Near The Water and The Klezmatics.

While shortlived, Shockabilly was unique. They seemed like a linear link between The Residents, Henry Cow, 80's sludge punk (Butthole Surfers, Big Black, Killdozer) and more contemporary, diverse bands such as The Sun City Girls and Primus, to name a few.

Sadly, Eugene Chadbourne claims Shockabilly was one of his least favorite projects and Kramer has apparently desecrated the mixes on subsequent reissues of the Shockabilly catalog he released on his Shimmy-Disc label. The 2008 remixes seem to have addressed this somewhat.

A Different Nature Presents: Strange Sounds From Sheffield: A Look at Cabaret Voltaire
August 4, 2010

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.
He has lately said in interviews that the last three or four Cabaret Voltaire albums were the work of himself alone.

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.
