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!

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.

Tonight host Danielle Parks features the work of Lucia Dlugoszewski, a Polish-American composer, performer and inventor. She created over a hundred unique percussion instruments, such as ladder harps, closed rattles, unsheltered rattles, tangent rattles, wave rattles, quarter-tone gongs, and square shaped drums - all made from a wide variety of materials including wood, plastic, metal, glass, and paper.  As she wrote in her essay called 'What Is Sound to Music', "In 1954, I began the immense journey in search of a Logos for music.  I was also more aware than ever before or since of the fragility of sound when it is music.

Mills College - Incubator of New Music

The common thread linking the composers on tonight's edition of "A Different Nature" is Mills College in Oakland, California. For more than 80 years, Mills has been at the forefront of contemporary music, dramatically and consistently expanding the frontiers of sound and theory. Among the ranks of those who have taught at Mills are such luminaries of 20th century music as Luciano Berio, John Cage, Henry Cowell, and Iannis Xenakis. This evening we will hear music from Mills-associated composers including  Pauline Oliveros, Morton Subotnik, Lou Harrison, Terry Riley, Joelle Léandre, Miya Masaoka, Gordon Mumma, Maggi Payne, Annie Gosfield, and James Tenney --much of it in an electronic or electroacoustic vein. host: Andy Hosch.

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.

CHAS SMITH: (1948, Hardwick, MA) After hearing Morton Subotnick's Silver Apples of the Moon, Smith left New England to attend CalArts where he studied under Subotnick, Mel Powell, James Tenney, Earl Brown and Harold Budd. He began performing and composing as a pedal steel guitarist but in 1993 he turned his day job of professional welder and machinist into a Harry Partch-like instrument maker for his own amazing compositions.  This show focused on both his earliest recordings and on two of his most recent releases with special focus on pedal steel guitar.

He taught in Cologne, Basel, and at SUNY Buffalo as well as in Belgium. Until he retired he taught at the University of Liege and he founded the Centre de recherches et de formation musicales de Wallonie.

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

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
