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!

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.

an ADN group show--hosted by daniel, dr. zomb & alejandro

BlaCK MUsiC FRom oUTeR SPacE-- via Saturn, Chicago, Egypt, etc.

In honor of KELAN PHILIP COHRAN's first ever Portland appearance this week, we present not only his own music and that of his ARTISTIC HERITAGE ENSEMBLE ('67-'68), but also the music of SUN RA'S ARKESTRA during their Chicago years of the late 1950s til 1961 (which featured COHRAN)  and later years, too. When Sun Ra took his band/commune out of Chicago, eventually settling in Philadelphia til Ra's death in '93, Cohran decided not to continue living with and playing with SUN RA. Luckily for Chicago (and for creative musicians everywhere!), Cohran stayed to help foster and support new creative black musicians by helping to found the AACM (the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians), which has garnered so many amazing members from its genesis in 1965 until today.
(look at http://aacmchicago.org/aacmmembers)

first, we ventured through the spacier of Sun Ra's later music, and eventually worked our way back to the band that featured not only Phil Cohran's trumpet, but his invented instruments he brought to the band---the "Frankiphone" aka the "Space Harp", ukelin zither)- Sun Ra's early pre-ESP records, Angels and Demons at Play, Fate in A Pleasant Mood, and some rare 1960 recording we found in our own KBOO library that we never even found in our research. (thank you DJ WHAT th!)

ROCKET N0. 9 take off for the planet VENUS - SUN RA & his Myth-Science Arkestra from INTERSTELLAR LOW WAYS, 1960- on Saturn (later Evidence)
HELIOCENTRIC - from Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra, vol 1 (1965) - on ESPdisk
the universe sent me - SUN RA from the Norton LP Space Poetry vol 2
OUTER NOTHINGNESS - Sun Ra & his Astro Inter-Galactic Infinity Arkestra from the LP HORIZON. recorded live in Egypt, 71 
BLACK HOLES IN SPACE and A BETTER WORLD from the Norton LP. Outer Darkness
excerpt from the Invisible Shield LP
DEEP  PURPLE - SUN RA and Stuff Smith, a duet recorded in Sun Ra's Chicago apartment, with Sun Ra on a solovox, prob '58!)

unamed tune recorded live in Berlin in 1983 --SUN RA's Arkestra with DON CHERRY, LESTER BOWIE, PHILLY JO JONES, FAMADOU DON MOYE, ARCHIE SHEPP, CLIFFORD JARVIS AND RICHARD DAVIS (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Lights of a Satellite - from the SUN RA & his Myth-Science Arkestra's 1960 Saturn (later on Evidence) LP, Fate in A Pleasant Mood
Music From The World Tomorrow, and Angels & Demons At Play - both from the 1960 Saturn LP Angels and Demons at Play
MAJESTIC I from MUSIC FROM TOMORROW'S WORLD. a newly released ('02?) rare 1960 session of the Arkestra in Chicago, with Phil Cohran on cornet. on ATAVISTIC records
A CALL FOR ALL DEMONS - from what has been called the first Sun Ra album, "Jazz by Sun Ra", recorded in 1956 and released in 1957 by Tom Wilson's label at the time, called Transition Records, later bought by the Delmark Records guy, Bob Koester, who reissued it in 1967.   
This sort of melts into the 1968 recording of PHILIP COHRAN'S Artistic Heritage Ensemble, sometimes called "On The Beach" as it was documents the sessions that took place on Lakeshore Drive in Chicago. This long, long, hypnotic track is called Motherhood and we are trying to imagine what it was like to have been there...it sounds like a pretty small crowd, though Cohran says once the word got out of what was happening there on the beach of Lake Michigan, the crowds swelled into the hundreds.

We closed with Creation of The Beast from Philip Cohran and the Artistic Heritage Ensemble's LP Armageddon.
into SUN RA speaking about the sub-dwellers. From the Norton (NAWTON!!) LP Sub Dwellers, and finally-
RUIZ vs. FMG from the ultra-weird record, COMIC BOOK HEROES.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS SHOW EVEN HALF AS MUCH AS WE DID PRESENTING IT. it may even have changed us in unimaginable ways...

Tonight on A Different Nature we pay tribute to Polish composer/musician ZBIGNIEW KARKOWSKI, who passed away in mid-December 2013. We'll listen to both solo works as well as collaborations, including selections from the multi-volumed "World As Will" that he did with Tetsuo Furudate.

And we'll also spend a little bit of tonight's program on another experimental musician who died late last year, Akifumi Nakajima, who performed under the name of AUBE.
 

From Wikipedia:
Zbigniew Karkowski (born March 14, 1958 – December 12, 2013) was a Polish experimental musician and composer.

Karkowski studied composition at the State College of Music in Gothenburg, Sweden, aesthetics of modern music at the University of Gothenburg’s Department of Musicology, and computer music at the Chalmers University of Technology. After completing his studies in Sweden, he studied sonology for a year at the Royal Conservatory of Music in The Hague, Netherlands. During his education, he also attended many summer composition master courses arranged by Centre Acanthes in Avignon and Aix-en-Provence, France, studying with Iannis Xenakis, Olivier Messiaen, Pierre Boulez and Georges Aperghis, among others.

He worked actively as a composer of both acoustic and electroacoustic music. He wrote pieces for large orchestra (commissioned and performed by the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra), plus an opera and several chamber music pieces that were performed by professional ensembles in Sweden, Poland and Germany.

Along with Edwin van der Heide and Atau Tanaka, he was a founding member of “Sensorband.” In performances by this electroacoustic music performance trio, Karkowski “activated his instrument by the movement of his arms in the space around him; this cut through invisible infrared beams mounted on a scaffolding structure” (Tanaka 2012).

Karkowski lived and worked in Tokyo, Japan, for the last years of his life and was active in the underground noise scene there.

Karkowski died of pancreatic cancer in December 2013.

And:

Aube (1959 – 25.09.2013) was the name used by Japanese musician Akifumi Nakajima (中嶋昭文 Nakajima Akifumi?) for his experimental noise records. He had released many CDs, LPs and cassettes since 1991, and was regarded as one of the most important noise musicians working of his time. He did not like to term his work "music," preferring the term "design": "I don't think of myself as a musician or an artist. I'm a designer. I therefore consider my sound works to be designs as well".[1] The essential element of his Aube project is that each record is composed with only a single material source, manipulated and processed using various types of electronic equipment. Examples of sources he has manipulated include water, fluorescent lamps, voltage-controlled oscillators, voices, pulmonary sounds, the Holy Bible's pages and sounds made with steel wire.

Akifumi Nakajima was born in 1959 in Japan. He was interested in sound work since the 80s, but had not released anything until he was asked to create music for an art installation in the early 90s. Since then, he has created an enormous amount of work - most of which is based on one sound source. Anything is used - from glass to oscillators and even pages from the Bible. His early work was noisier, while his new direction leaned toward ambient.

Adam Rudolph bio

For the past three decades composer, improviser and percussionist Adam Rudolph has performed extensively in concert throughout North & South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Rudolph has been hailed as “a pioneer in world music” by the NY Times and "a master percussionist” by Musician magazine. He has released 25 recordings under his own name, featuring his compositions and percussion work. Rudolph composes for his ensembles Moving Pictures and Organic Orchestra, an 18 to 54 piece group for which he has developed an original music notation and conducting system. He has taught and conducted hundreds of musicians in the Organic Orchestra concept; most recently in Sicily, Naples, Oslo, and Istanbul, NYC and LA. Rudolph recently premiered his opera The Dreamer, based on the text of Friedreich Nietzsche's "The Birth of Tragedy".

Rudolph has performed with Don Cherry, Jon Hassell, Sam Rivers, Pharaoh Sanders, L. Shankar, A.A.C.M co-founders Fred Anderson and Muhal Richard Abrams, Wadada Leo Smith, and Omar Sosa. He has toured extensively and recorded 15 albums with Yusef Lateef including duets and their large ensemble compositional collaborations.

Born in 1955, Rudolph grew up in the Hyde Park area of the Southside of Chicago. From an early age he was exposed to the live music performances of the great blues and improvising artists who lived nearby. As a teenager, Rudolph started playing hand drums in local streets and parks and soon apprenticed with elders of African American improvised music. He performed regularly in Chicago with Fred Anderson and in Detroit with the Contemporary Jazz Quintet. In 1973 Rudolph played on his first record date with Maulawi Nururdin and with the CJQ at the Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz festival.. 

 

In 1977 he lived and studied in Ghana, where he experienced trance ceremonies. In his travels throughout West Africa he saw how music can come from a cosmological grounding beyond music itself and can also be about something beyond music itself. In 1978 he lived in Don Cherry’s house in the Swedish countryside. Cherry inspired him to start composing and showed him about Ornette Coleman’s concept and the connection of music to nature.

 

Rudolph is known as one the early innovators of what is now called “World Music”. In 1978 he and Gambian Kora player Jali Foday Musa Suso co-founded The Mandingo Griot Society, one of the first groups to combine African and American music. In 1988, he recorded the first fusion of American and Gnawa music with Sintir player and singer Hassan Hakmoun. Rudolph intensely studied North Indian Tabla for over 15 years with Pandit Taranath Rao. He learned hundreds of drum compositions and about how music is a form of Yoga – the unity of mind, body and spirit. In 1988 Rudolph began his association with Yusef Lateef, with whom he has recorded over 15 albums including several of their large ensemble collaborations. Lateef introduced Rudolph to the inspirational practice of Autophysiopsychic Music – “that which comes from one’s spiritual, physical and emotional self”. Rudolph still performs worldwide with Dr. Lateef. Their performances have ranged from their acclaimed duet concerts to appearances as guest soloists with the Koln, Atlanta and Detroit symphony orchestras.

 

Rudolph continues to also create visual art – painting, drawing, photography - and to write. In 2006, his rhythm repository and methodology book, Pure Rhythm was published by Advance Music, Germany. In 2010 Rudolph’s article Music and Mysticism: Rhythm and Form was published in Arcana V, edited by John Zorn. Other essays have been published by Parabola Magazine and Morton Books. Rudolph has been on the faculty of Creative Music Studio ( New York and Istanbul) Esalen Institute, California Institute of the Arts and the Danish Jazz Federation Summer Institute. Rudolph has received grants and compositional commissions from the Rockefeller Foundation, Chamber Music America, Meet the Composer, Mary Flagler Cary Trust, the NEA, Arts International, Durfee Foundation, Phaedrus Foundation and American Composers Forum.

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
