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

Oramics

Tonight we explore the music of one of the unsung heros of electronic music, British composer Daphne Oram. She worked at the BBC in the late 1950s where she co-founded the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and became its first Studio Manager. A year later she resigned from the workshop, being unhappy with BBC's music department's lack of interest in the more experimental music that was beginning to be created in Europe and abroad. Instead she designed her own  Oramics Studios for Electronic Composition, and produced a far wider range of music than the Radiophonic Workshop.

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.

Back in May, we had a listener call-in show to see what our audience wanted to hear and one suggestion was electronic music that isn't musique concrete.  So thats what I pulled together for the show...    during the show the guy who suggested it called and although he was enjoying the show, he said he actually didn't mean it to be interpreted so narrowly. The ADN collective basically has a list on all of our computers of the listener requests and I picked this one as I knew I had the material to do it as it was written.  But I would like to honor the larger scope of this listener's vision and so we will hopefully expand upon the idea in the weeks and months to come...  Thanks to the listener for his suggestion as well as his call last night!    Here's what I played:

 

john pfeiffer    forests    electronomusic lp   rca

bulent arel    stereo electronic music no 1    columbia-princeton electronic music center v/a lp    columbia

jozef malovec    orthgenesis    electronic music vol. IV v/a lp    turnabout

milton babbitt    composition for synthesizer    columbia-princeton lp again

don preston    electronic    filters, oscillators and envelopes lp    sub rosa

several selections from the nonesuch guide to electronic music 2 lp box set

morton subotnick    pt.1    silver apples of the moon lp    nonesuch

charles wuorinen    pt.1    time's encomium lp    nonesuch

johanna m. beyer    1977 performance of her 1938 composition, music of the spheres    new music for electronic and recorded media v/a lp    arch records

lejaren hiller-robert baker    3rd movement, computer cantata    computer music from the university of illinois lp    heiiodor

raymond scott    excrpt, the happy whistler    soothing sounds for baby lp    basta

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
