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 Sessions of Sonic Youth Records

Tune in for some interesting music from Sonic Youth Records.

Even if you aren't a fan of Sonic Youth, the music on their personal imprint SYR is challenging and rewarding listening.

When given a pile of loot for performing at Lollapolooza, Sonic Youth bought their own studio, which gave them the freedom to experiment and collaborate with some interesting musicians, free from the meddling of a major record label.

The resulting recordings are released in the SYR Series (1 - 9 so far) and offers sounds unheard of since their earliest experimental days.

Hosted by Rolf S.

This is one of the listener suggested shows we solicited live on the air in May and was suggested by listener Stu.

TONIGHT on A DIFFERENT NATURE
CARLA KIHLSTEDT

Tune in to KBOO tonight (MON) from 8:00 to 10:00 PM for an in-depth exploration of the music and busy career of violinist/composer/vocalist CARLA KIHLSTEDT

Join us as we listen to the many musical settings this diverse classically-trained artist has found herself in-her many projects have led her to a style of composition that is now largely based on literary texts, including Polish-Jewish artist Bruno Schulz, Humphrey Jennings' Pandaemonium-The Coming of The Machine 1660-1886, Luis Borges' Tales of Imaginary Creatures and her newest endeavor (w/Tin Hat): music to surround the poems of e. e. cummings.

Sachiko M and Ami Yoshida

“What is that irritating high-pitched drone in the background?” Daniel wondered as he started listening to Otomo Yoshihide's jazz group cover Eric Dolphy's classic “Out to Lunch!” “Is there something wrong with this CD?” Then the rest of the collective were over there, listening to the album. A few members couldn't hear the high-pitched drones, at the beginning and the end of many tracks, unless they really listened. It sounded something like tinnitus. “This is head-ache inducing,” someone remarked.

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.
