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!

John Cage Centenary Celebration... host: Alejandro Ceballos

John Cage (1912-1992) was born on September 5, 1912.   Cage was, perhaps, the greatest music radical of the 20th century. He composed using chance procedures. His music honored silence along with sound. He made no distinction between traditional musical sounds and what some call noise. He embraced, rather than escaped from, messy urban life as well as anarchic nature. He was controversial, to say the least, but his influence has been, and continues to be, extraordinary. No one in the last century did more to change the way much of the world now thinks about, makes and consumes art.  In celebration the Cage centenary, A Different Nature is presenting Cage-related programming throughout the month of September.

She created over a hundred unique percussion instruments, such as ladder harps, closed rattles, unsheltered rattles, tangent rattles, wave rattles, quarter-tone gongs, and square shaped drums - all made from a wide variety of materials including wood, plastic, metal, glass, and paper.  As she wrote in her essay called 'What Is Sound to Music', "In 1954, I began the immense journey in search of a Logos for music.  I was also more aware than ever before or since of the fragility of sound when it is music.

Mills College - Incubator of New Music

The common thread linking the composers on tonight's edition of "A Different Nature" is Mills College in Oakland, California. For more than 80 years, Mills has been at the forefront of contemporary music, dramatically and consistently expanding the frontiers of sound and theory. Among the ranks of those who have taught at Mills are such luminaries of 20th century music as Luciano Berio, John Cage, Henry Cowell, and Iannis Xenakis. This evening we will hear music from Mills-associated composers including  Pauline Oliveros, Morton Subotnik, Lou Harrison, Terry Riley, Joelle Léandre, Miya Masaoka, Gordon Mumma, Maggi Payne, Annie Gosfield, and James Tenney --much of it in an electronic or electroacoustic vein. host: Andy Hosch.

Bill Dixon: Tapestries for Small Orchestra

This recording, from 2008, shows that Dixon has lost none of his skills as a writer of impressionistic, deep, music. The use of several horns gives Dixon room to color and explore his compositions to the fullest. The compositions are are fairly lengthy-the shortest being 9 minutes, the longer tracks 12-17 minutes. The band consists of-Dixon-trumpet/electronics, Bynum-cornet/flugelhorn/bass trumpet/piccolo trumpet, Graham Haynes-cornet/flugelhorn/electronics, Stephen Haynes-trumpet/flugelhorn, Bob Mauzurek-cornet/electronics, Glynis Lomon-violoncello, Michael Cole-contrabass/clarinet/bass clarinet, Ken Filiano-double bass/electronics, and Warren Smith-vibraphone/marimba/drums/tympani/gongs.

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.

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!
