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

Tune in this Monday evening (Oct. 29) from 8:00 pm until 12 midnight for an extended installment of "A Different Nature", as the collective brings you their annual Dia de los Muertos show. ADN founding host Richard Francis was heavily into celebrating Dia de los Muertos during the last years of his life, so now, every year around this time we pay homage to Richard and others who have passed, with a musical tribute. As usual, expect the unexpected. Dr. Zomb and friends will bring experimental and electronic music related to the theme [and some perhaps unrelated...] plus ritual music of funeral lamentations, ancestor worship, and the afterlife from many different cultures.

Pionees of Tape Manipulation

On this episode of A Different Nature, who'll explore artists and pieces that best exemplify the manipulation of found sound via magnetic tape.

Tape Manipulation distinguishes itself from similar genres involving magnetic tape such as Tape Music, Musique Concrete or Electro-Acoustic Music in that it utilizes found sound and recontextualizes it, either artistically or to make a counter, ironic statement, rather than something recorded by the artist specifically for manipulation.

It's an art-form that is literally as old as the medium itself, as we'll attempt to demonstrate in this episode.

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.

JOHN CAGE CENTENARY CELEBRATION

  The American composer John Cage was born on September 5, 1912. Cage was one of the most influential musical minds of the 20th century, leaving an indelible mark on future generations of minimalist and electroacoustic composers, and also  in the relams of art rock, avant-jazz, noise, and electronica.  To celebrate the Cage centenary, A Different Nature will present Cage-related programming throughout the month of September.  This first program on September 3rd will be an extended 3-hour show (8-11 pm).   Then tune in on the 10th and the 17th at the regular time (8-10 pm).

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.

 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
