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

Short Description: 
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.

Hosted by Danielle Parks

Ersatz Ergot: The Invention of Language in Music

The Different Nature Collective presents Ersatz Ergot, the invention of language in music.

Two hours of invented language: Esperanto - once optimistically hailed as the unifying universal language; Kobaïan - the invented language from French progressive rock band Magma; Molemot - the resultant language of miscegenation of the two races of The Resident's Mole mythos; the wordless stylings of Jaap Blonk, Christian Bök, Mike Patton - as well as classic works by Kurt Schwitters and more.

NAKED VOICE - Tonight we listen to the voice as a solo instrument.. with almost no accompanimnent or electronics, and mostly stearing clear of spoken word and closer to sound-poetry, avant acappella and other forms of music/non-music that uses only the voice. From the soothing to the jarring, from the humorous to the sinister and scary.. we might listen to such artists as Joan La Barbara, Jaap Blonk, Diamanda Galas, Henri Chopin, Junko, Demetrio Stratos, Tamia, Prima Materia, and Lexie Mountain Boys.

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.

The two bands not only shared two major members (John Bischoff and Tim Perkis) along with featuring many major West Coast composers (Chris Brown, David Behrman, Paul DeMarinis, Rich Gold, Scot Gresham-Lancaster, Phil Stone and Mark Trayle); they also strongly represent the West Coast tradition of composer as instrument builder, using the newly available microcomputers of the '70 (in the case of LAMC) plus electronic and digital systems of their own devising (in both) to create networks of interacting computers and circuits with an eye to eliciting surprising and new “musical artificial intelligences.” Some of the most imaginative and compelling electric music created since 1977 and the music of Musica Elettronica Viva. Rescheduled from earlier pre-emptions.

 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

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
