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

Krol Voldarepet Knact Didáctico

On A Different Nature we will be playing Krol Voldarepet Knact Didáctico, group formed by Marco Antonio "Tzara" Godinez (Synthesizer Roland SH-1), Arturo Meza (String Synthesizer ARP OMNI and acoustic guitar), Juan Wolfang Cruz (Violoncello and electric bass) and Victor Soto (electric guitar).
Their music is described as a proyect of didactic music, collective improvisation of sounds and atmospheres.
The sound they made is a mixture of strange textures that at times it sounds spacy and psychedelic, being at times desperate and mysterious.
We will hear two reharsal recordings from 1977-78, and a live recrding at the Frederic Chopin Concert Hall, June 25th, 1977.

Tonight we'll listen to releases on the Grrr label.. -- not the American label which releases Christian music, but rather the French label which has released some incredible music in the last 35 plus years. Mainly the label of  Un Drame Musical Instantane, who combined free jazz, rock, and modern classical  and mixed electronics with acoustic instruments in highly creative ways, Grrr also went on to release other excellent recordings by similar artists like Helene Sage, Bernard Vitet, Pied de Poul and more..   .

Moebius, Roedelius, Cluster, Harmonia and more

Tonight on A Different Nature, in light of the upcoming performance of HANS JOACHIM ROEDELIUS, we will explore his music, along with that of his oft-times collaborator, DIETER MOEBIUS. After being a part of the avant-garde group KLUSTER with CONRAD SCHNITZLER in 1969, they formed CLUSTER, in 1971, and went on to create a proto-type of the ambient electronic music still heard today. Not only will we hear KLUSTER and CLUSTER, but also HARMONIA, which included Michael Rother of NEU!, and some of their collaborations with like-minded artist BRIAN ENO. Here's a chance to listen to the pre-history of contemporary ambient electronica!

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 Different Nature playlist for 08/25/2014

Program name: 
A Different Nature
Air date: 
08/25/2014

On tonight's A Different Nature, Dr. Zomb and Rich L. take a look back on multimedia ensemble Negativland, in anticipation on their live performance at The Crystal Ballroom on the 29th.

Since 1980, the 4 or 5 or 6 Floptops known as Negativland have been creating records, CDs, video, fine art, books, radio and live performance using appropriated sounds, images, objects, and text. Mixing original materials and original music with things taken from corporately owned mass culture and the world around them, Negativland re-arranges these found bits and pieces to make them say and suggest things that they never intended to. In doing this kind of cultural archaeology and "culture jamming" (a term they coined way back in 1984), Negativland have been sued twice for copyright infringement.

Over the years Negativland's "illegal" collage and appropriation based audio and visual works have touched on many things - pranks, media hoaxes, advertising, media literacy, religion, the evolving art of collage, the bizarre banality of suburban existence, creative anti-corporate activism in a media saturated multi-national world, file sharing, intellectual property issues, wacky surrealism, evolving notions of art and ownership and law in a digital age, and artistic and humorous observations of mass media and mass culture.

We also plan on having a phone conversation with founder Mark Hosler, circumstances permitting (he's on the other side of the continent, making his way towards Portlandia).

Parmegiani is known for his innovations in electroacoustic music, spinning together natural and synthetic sounds. He joined France's musique concrète collective Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM) in the late 1950s, working with the likes of Pierre Schaeffer, Luc Ferrari, and Iannis Xenakis. [his week's host: Andy Hosch]  Learn more about Parmegiani in this WIRE article/interview, originally published in 1998.

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.
