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

Lawrence D. "Butch" Morris & Conduction, part 2 of 6

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, China, and West Africa, along with Western instruments and electronics

Terry Riley's OLSON III, Parson Sound, and International Harvester

Tonight on A DIFFERENT NATURE: for most of the first hour we will listen to one of my all-time favoire peices by composer Terry Riley, OLSON III. Then, we'll hear from the PARSON SOUND and INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER, two Swedish groups that share many same members, who also worked with Riley during his visit to Sweden at the time Olson III was recorded. Their music was heavily influinced by Riley, and takes his drone minimalism into a a wild psychedelic rock trip.

"A piece of unrelenting intensity, Olson III may be one of the most powerful compositions from minimalist composer Terry Riley. Based on the same phasing principals of In C, Olson III is filled with short motives that each ensemble member must play and repeat before moving onto the next.

Lawrence D. "Butch" Morris & Conduction, part 1

host: Andy Hosch /// This evening we bring you the first in a six part series on the music of Lawrence D. "Butch" Morris, whose principle of Conduction© blurs the lines between modern composition and free improvisation. Morris has invented an array of hand and baton gestures by which he leads groups in structured improvisation, in essence transforming the role of conductor into that of composer.

Since the mid 1980s Morris has led over 180 Conductions in cities around the world with ensembles of varying size and diverse instrumentation, often involving live electronic processing. The body of Morris' recorded work is impressive, and his music has been largely under recognized.

IGOR WAKHEVITCH

Tonight wel explore the music of IGOR WAKHEVITCH. Wakhevitch studied under musique concrete founder Pierre Scheaffer, worked with minimalist composer Terry Riley, and composed the music for Salvador Dali's opera Etre Dieu. On top of the Dali opera, he released six records in the 1970s which in the words of the Swan's Michael Gira are "The most astonishing music I have heard in some years... Amazing approach to sound, from classical to experimental, psychadelia to film music. Ominous and beautiful, then clamorous and Wagnerian. At some points it sounds like contemporary electronic music, then shifts seemlessly into a full classical orchestra," while a Pitchfork review of one his records was titled "It Was the Strangest Record I Had Ever Heard."

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 LEAGUE OF AUTOMATIC MUSIC COMPOSERS and THE HUB. 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.

ERIC SATIE'S VEXATIONS (PIANOLESS).   Vexations was composed for piano in 1893 by Eric Satie.  It consists of a short motif repeated 840 times.  Satie wrote that "in order to play this motive 840 times consecutively to oneself, it will be useful to prepare oneself beforehand, and in utter silence, by grave immobilities" make it, according to contemporary pianist/composer "Blue" Gene Tyranny, "the first instance of the psychological state of the performer(s) being the primary, foreground content of a musical piece."

Vexations did not receive a public performance until 1963 when John Cage and several other pianists played the 840 repetitions over a period of 19 hours.

On this evening's show, excerpts from an 8-hour performance (not the full 840 repetitions which takes 19-24 hours) by a variety of musicians, none of them on piano, of a Piano-less Vexations performed at The Sculpture Center in New York City on Sunday, June 11, 2006.

Recordings of the full 8-hour performance can be found at www.ubu.com.

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
