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

Tune in this Monday evening (Oct. 29) from 8:00 pm until 12 midnight for an extended installment of "A Different Nature", as the collective brings you their annual Dia de los Muertos show. ADN founding host Richard Francis was heavily into celebrating Dia de los Muertos during the last years of his life, so now, every year around this time we pay homage to Richard and others who have passed, with a musical tribute. As usual, expect the unexpected. Dr. Zomb and friends will bring experimental and electronic music related to the theme [and some perhaps unrelated...] plus ritual music of funeral lamentations, ancestor worship, and the afterlife from many different cultures.

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: 
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.

For this show it was decided to play some Mexican progressive rock, but more on the experimental, electronic side. So, there we have Decibel, Duda Mata, Via Lactea, Aristeo, and others.

Most of these recordings date from mid to late 70's, to early 80's, needless to mention, they are extremely hard to find; Aristeo, for example, was only a limited edition run of home made tapes recorded in Nogales Arizona.

A Different Nature Presents: Wire Music

 

On this week's A Different Nature, we present Wire Music, the otherwise unheard symphony of powerlines, telephone lines and high tension lines, and the interactions with wind, sunlight or human hands.

We heard the works of Australian composer Alan Lamb and his multi-volume works dealing with recording miles and miles of telephone wires in the Outback. Also, the haunting sounds of an abandoned WWII radar installation, courtesy of English artist Richard Harrison's album Drone Hill 225 and we'll also hear the architectural/acoustic contructs of artists O & A.

We rounded the show out with some of Alvin Lucier's classic Music from a Long Thin Wire, all four tracks played simulaneously to condense the entire album into a single track length. Consider it Music on Four Long Thing Wires.

This is hosted by Rich L.

A look at The BBC Radiophonics Workshop
On this week’s A Different Nature, a look at The BBC Radiophonics Workshop.
Although best known today as the creators of the Dr. Who theme, The Radiophonics Workshop supplied delightfully strange music and sound effects for British radio, television and films for the better part of 40 years.

“The BBC Radiophonic Workshop, one of the sound effects units of the BBC, was created in 1958 to produce effects and new music for radio, and was closed in March 1998, although much of its traditional work had already been outsourced by 1995. It was based in the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios in Delaware Road, London, W9, UK growing outwards from the then-legendary Room 13. The innovative music and techniques used by the Workshop has made it one of the most significant influences on electronic music today.

We took a look at their work, as well as some interviews and other ephemera from these Alchemists of Sound. Admittedly, it was a Delia Derbyshire-centric mix, as both Nate and I are huge fans of her work and felt she was the unsung heroine of the Radiophonic saga. Sadly, most of her acclaim seemed to have arrived posthumously, as she passed away in 2001.

This episode was hosted by Rich L. and Nate Mannan, of KOUG Radio program Noise Annoys.

This is sure to be the first part of a possibly recurring feature.

Tonight on A Different Nature, a look at the works of Brion Gysin.
He is perhaps best known as a collaborative partner of William S. Burroughs and for introducing him to the cut-up technique.
Brion worked in painting, collage, calligraphic art, sound poetry and writing, but in his life never achieved the recognition that his peers did, despite his efforts latter in life and those of Burroughs, who frequently championed Gysin as his inspiration during what they called their "Third Mind" era.
Perhaps one of Gysin's most enduring - and curious - inventions is the Dream Machine. Part kinetic sculpture, part spiritual shrine, the Dream Machine was intended to create a drugless high and lead to mystic visions. Gysin hoped it would replace the television in people's homes and believed it was art taken to the logical apex - that it was the end of art. The Dream Machine remains an esoteric oddity among hipsters and is shrouded in mystery and intrigue to this day.
He also collaborated with many musicians, most notably Jazz saxophonist Steve Lacey.
Brion Gysin passed away in Paris in 1986.

Here's a link to an online, virtual Dream Machine: http://www.netliberty.net/dreamachine.html

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.
