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.

He has also worked with Nurse With Wound, Faust, Danielle Dax, Edward Ka-Spel, Halfler Trio, Bass Communion, Daniel Menche, Current 93, Karl Blake, and many others ... His music varies all over the map: dark ambient; electro-soundscapes, improvised works, bizarre spoken word pieces, post rock blowouts, and a lot more, as it skirts many sides of the strange and surreal ....

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.

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.

This week on A Different Nature, we featured Dutch Ambient and Soundscape artist Arno Peeters.

"Arno started tape music in the early '80's and evolved to electronic music. First as the EBM-duo Voltage Control (2 EP's and one CD-album on Antler) and later as one of the first techno-artists in The Netherlands with some EP's on Djax-Up-Beats, as part of Random XS and Urban Electro and solo as Spasms. He turned away from techno to more experiMental stuff on his album 'Fuzzy Logic' and migrated to the German Mille Plateaux-label which released the award-winning AeroSon and two tracks on compilations. Nowadays he composes in 5.1 surround and makes a living with producing a weekly radioshow on electronic music (Folio on Dutch National Radio 6) and (as the one-man company Tape TV Productions) editing, mixing and mastering all kinds of projects from the no-budget fine art to the high profile and the cutting edge."

John Cage/Andrew HoschLe Cage Concrète: 52 miniatures to be played in random sequenceLe Cage ConcrèteEpitonium

September 5th is the birthday of the American composer John Cage. He would have been 99 this year. In 2012, to celebrate the centenary of Cage's birth, we here at  A Different Nature, elsewhere on KBOO, and in Portland's new music community, will be presenting Cage-related programming throughout the year.

Tonight's Cage birthday celebration brings you the audio track from the 1983 Peter Greenaway film, Four American Composers, Vol. 1: John Cage.  This documentary sheds light on Cage's musical philosophy. It was based on a series of performances of music by John Cage to celebrate his 70th birthday at St. James Church Islington, London. If you would like to view the film, someone has posted it on youtube. 

The second hour of the show will feature "Le Cage Concrète", a series of 52 miniatures constructed from fragments of performances of Cage's music, averaging 1 1/2 minutes each in duration. These 52 short pieces are intended to be played in random sequence.  The possible combinations are astronomical: approximately 80 to the 67th power (80 with 67 zeroes...)  "Le Cage Concrète" was constructed in 1998 by Andrew Hosch, currently a host of this program.

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

                 SOUND ARTIST, COMPOSER, SOUND POET, EVENTMAKER

                           CHARLIE MORROW (b 1942 Newark, New Jersey)

tonight on ADN, we feature(d) Charlie Morrow--a conceptualist whose music and sound work explores many styles and forms, from events for media and public spaces (sunset concerts with 40 cellists! Dozens of boats tooting their whistles and blinking their lights!) to commercial soundtracks, new media productions, museum installations and programming for broadcast and festivals. He also apparently did a live performance for fish. Assembling expert project groups, Morrow employs a collaborative style that fuses arts, artists, and environment. Technological expertise creates the basis for much of his work, which often combines newest and oldest technologies. Morrow’s patent for 3D sound playback is pending.

Morrow's 1st major work, Slow Gabrieli (1957) was a super slow motion performance of G. Gabrielli's Sonata Pian e Forte for double brass ensemble. Other 50s conceptual action works include Interuption Music where, unknown to the conductor, an orchestra is rigged to scratch and belch at a set time in the a performance and Flower Music where, while receiving honors on stage in a public ceremony, the performer tips a vase of flowers onto the audience. Also from this time, ironic stamp art works: REALLY and author: please destroy. Mail art work in this genre followed with Ray Johnson.Morrow’s sound poetry works started with Morrow’s home tape recorder creations Hella (1969) on wordplay text, continuing in Horse Songs of Frank Mitchell and Satan in Goray (1969) manipulations of J. Rothenberg text and the multitrack Personal Chants (1971) w/Morrow’s voice with sound processing. He has performed and made recordings with poet Jerome Rothenberg from the 60s to the present. A Healing Piece for the Performance Group (now the Wooster Group). Performance works with soundtracks, and audience participation include : Ho Ho on my Father’s Shirt, Breath Chants, Sky Songs and Dream Songs.

commonality of spirit with what evolved as the Fluxus collective of artists (in NYC in the early 60s) led to a career-long association with Fluxus artists and a friendship with Emily Harvey, the gallerist who presented Morrow's installation based on Copenhagen Waves (1985). Morrow had a "Flux" wedding in the Emily Harvey Gallery (1988) officiated by his life long collaborator, poet Jerome Rothenberg, in which Emily Harvey ceremonially took the role of Charlie's father (deceased) along side Charlie’s mother, Laura Morrrow, MD. Morrow plans a memorial for Emily and Laura: Mirrored Wing Wind Bells (on poles of canals in Venice).

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

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!
