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

Interview with Homer Flynn of The Residents

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: 

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).

Akira Ifukube would have been 100 years old on May 31, 2014. Born on the Japanese island of Hokkaido, son of a Shinto priest, legend has it that Ifukube decided to become a composer at the age of 14 upon hearing a radio performance of Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring".  Largely self-taught as a composer, Ifukube's big break came in 1935, when his first orchestral piece, "Japanese Rhapsody", won first prize in an international contest for young composers.  His first film score (End of the Silver Mountains) was in 1947. Over the next fifty years, he would compose more than 250 film scores, the most famous of which was his 1954 music for Ishiro Honda's "Godzilla". Ifukube also created Godzilla's trademark roar – produced by rubbing a resin-covered leather glove along the loosened strings of a double bass. Despite his financial success as a film composer, Ifukube's first love had always been his work as a classical composer. His compositions for the two genres cross-fertilized each other.  Akira Ifukube died on February 8, 2006 at the age of 91.  On this installment of A Different Nature, we listened to examples of both Ifukube's film music and concert pieces.  host: Andy Hosch
