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

The world of Francisco Lopez
The Soundscapes of FRANCISCO LOPEZ

Francisco López, internationally recognized as one of the major figures of the sound art and experimental music scene, for more than thirty years has developed an astonishing sonic universe, absolutely personal and iconoclastic, based on a profound listening of the world. Destroying boundaries between industrial sounds and wilderness sound environments, shifting ifrom the limits of perception to the most dreadful abyss of sonic power, proposing a blind, profound and transcendental listening, freed from the imperatives of knowledge and open to sensory expansion.

Mon, 07/28/2014 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Short Description: 
Amon Duul
      Tonight on A Different Nature we listen to the music of Amon Duul and Amon Duul II. Spawned from the Amon Duul commune in Munich, Germany back in the late 1960s, the group AMON DUUL created free-form psychedelic music with high energy and an experimental edge.  The band consisted of anyone in the commune who wanted to play music, and they valued artistic freedom and enthusiasm over musical ability, but the results were fascinating. .
.     The more professionally ambitious and skilled musicians of AMON DUUL cohered into AMON DUUL II, to produce music that mixed the psychedelic and progressive into whole new realms ..

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.

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. 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.

"I just walked into the room and hear a high-pitched whine. Is there something wrong with the antenna. You mean this is supposed to be music? It's not music, it's just a high pitch whine. Are you the idiot that programmed this? Do you think people are going to be entertained by this shit? You're taking up valuable air time with this. YOU'RE A FUCKING IDIOT!"

Part five of our six-part series on Butch Morris and Conduction.  We start off this week with an interview recorded for Vermont Public Radio [VPR] in November of 2007 so that listeners can learn more about Morris and the theories behind his concept of Conduction in the composer's own voice.  The interviewer is George Thomas, and also sitting in is Don Glasgo, leader of Dartmouth University's student jazz ensemble "Barbary Coast".  The interview is a bit over 30 minutes in duration. Anyone who missed the interview or would like to hear it again can find it archived at VPR's website:
