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

Strange Sounds From Sheffield: A Look at Cabaret Voltaire

A look at the Dada-infused group from Sheffield UK, Cabaret Voltaire.
Cabaret Voltaire formed in 1973, around Richard H. Kirk, Stephen Mallinder and Chris Watson. Initially utilizing minimal electronics and tape to make their highly original sounds, they eventually incorporated Funk, dance and Dub in the mix and released numerous singles, EPs and albums.
Watson left the group in the early 80's to pursue a career in television and has since gained acclaim as an environmental sound recordist.
Cabaret Voltaire's output slowed to a crawl in the Nineties and there has yet to be a proper CV recording in this century.
Richard H. Kirk continues to put out releases under his own name, as Sandoz, Biochemical Dread and more.

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.

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.

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.

                 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).  

His sound poetry ranges from improvisation to fully notated works with and without texts. He chanted as the shaman in his with fire and recorded sound environment, one of the first performances at The Kitchen New York in the old Broadway Central Hotel. His calligraphies of vocal patterns in color on parchment stem from this work, and handmade books in small editions: Chanting Book, A Gathering of Healers. the Blue Book and the Red Book.

Charlie created and directed Radiophonic works include live broadcast Morrow’s Skysongs and electro-acoustic pieces including four one-hour radio Sound Head Shows, broadcast in the US and Europe. Sound portrait works began in 1968 with The Marilyn Monroe Collage. He participated in the 11th International Sound Poetry festival in Toronto where he met Swedish artist, Sten Hanson. Morrow and Hanson co-organized the 12th International Sound Poetry Festival 80 NYC and collaborated on performance works Sound Graphics, The Heavy Weight Sound Fight (including Carles Santes), and Montgolfier Musique. Recent sound poetry work includes digitally retouched voice works, sound portraits, and 3D word-sound environmentsLight Opera, with Min Tanaka and the Western Wind Vocal Ensemble, was presented at La Mama Theater. He created incidental music for Hotel Pro Forma’s Snow White, scores for Nana Nilsson Dancers and performances in 3D sound environments for The Geneva Set.

Morrow’s first sound studio 1968 in NYC was a mix of hand made circuits, tape recorders and a custom loud speakers including a Jack Weisberg corner array of six 6'x 3' horns, stacked 3 above 3. He has built successive studios in Soho and Chelsea as the cornerstone for producing events, broadcasts & media work.

He conceived and produced large-scale musical works for Lake Michigan (Louvre Museum, Paris), General Gas Exhibit (Chicago Museum of Science and Industry), 2nd Acustica International (Whitney Museum) and an arctic sound room for the KAH, Bonn, Germany, the Hall of Planet Earth (American Museum of Natural History) He composed music for multimedia, orchestra, 3D sound for a Volvo U.S. annual sales meeting, for AT&T Mummenschanz (Telcom 88 Geneva) inaugurating the ISDN system, for Nam Jun Paik's Versailles Video Wall and programmed Nam Jun Paik's Swatch Watch.Toot'N Blink Chicago), Copenhagen (Copenhagen Waves), and New York Harbor.

Program name: 
A Different Nature
Air date: 
06/27/2011

On this week's A Different Nature, we took a look at the cassette-only series Tellus Audio Cassette Magazine, a subscription series that offered a wide variety of artists and musicians, often curated by a different artist or group per release.

‘Tellus was created in 1983 at the Rum Runner Bar on Canal Street in New York City. Joseph Nechvatal, a visual artist, Claudia Gould, a curator and Carol Parkinson, a composer and staff member of Harvestworks/Studio PASS met to discuss the idea of a magazine on cassette which would feature interesting and challenging sound works. With the advent of the Walkman and the Boom Box, the editors perceived a need for an alternative to radio programming and the commercially available recordings on the market at that time.’ [from Harvestworks website]

Many notable artists appeared here, sometimes in mediums they were not known for. The range of disciplines run the gamut from spoken-word arts, piano composition and performance, guitar, music for experimental film, radio drama, experiments in musical intonation and more.

The series ran from 1983 to 1993, spanning 24 issues, finally culminating in vinyl and CD compilations. It was a veritable who's who of avant garde music of the era, as well as many notable artists from the past making appearances.

Hosted by Rich L.

In Search of Silence - Scorpio Rising, is an LP recorded by the eclectic Mexican Theater Director Juan José Gurrola in the early Seventies with various friends (Victor Fosado: Percussion, Roberto Bustamante: electric Guitar, Eduardo Guzman: Trumpet). It is an unknown record, only a few copies were made. It is a rare example of Mexican experimental music, free jazz, alternative music, at that time. I consider Gurrola a pioneer of sound art in Mexico, along with Alejandro Jodorowsky who was a good friend of his back in the sixties.

On 2007, the curator Mauricio Marcin did an exhibition of Gurrola's artistic works and he asked me if we could make a CD of this forgotten LP, but inviting electronic composers to do remixes, sound interventions or works inspired in the different tracks of Gurrola's LP. I had already suggested this to Gurrola, and so he agreed and I invited 20 Mexican people to participate. It became sort of homage to this grate interdisciplinary artist, that sadly died recently, just after the CD was published.

Ivan Naranjo

Also, a very rare tape by Via Lactea from the late 70's

90.7 FM Radio in Portland, Or. www.kboo.fm/listen on internet

========================================

Se podrá escuchar el disco En busca del Silencio/ Escorpión en ascendente grabado en los setentas por Gurrola, exploración musical denominada por él mismo como música neuro-atonal, y que Manuel Rocha, artista sonoro e investigador, define como “una música experimental muy libre, una especie de free jazz bastante avanzado que se mezcla con algo de pop con orígenes desconocidos”.

Asi como una cinta muy rara de Via Lactea de finales de los 70's.

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

have a nice trip.
