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!

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.

On this evening's four hour CAGE CENTENARY finale, members of the 'Different Nature' Collective gathered in the KBOO studios and employed Cagean chance  methods in "composing" a four-hour collage.

More than 60 recordings (CDs & LPs) of Cage's music were divided into four random piles: one pile four each of the four suites: spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs. Actually, this operation was only semi-random, as it was decided that because phonograph records are played with a diamond stylus, that diamonds would be their suit. The CDs were equally divided among the three remaining suits. We began by drawing a card from the deck. A corresponding recording was selected based on the draw. For example, if the 8 of hearts were drawn, the 8th CD in the 'hearts' pile would picked, and so on.  

Dice rolls then determined which track would be played.  As the selection process continued, we gradually overdubbed additional Cage compositions.  Two turntables and three CD players were utilized, so up to five pieces could be heard, superimposed, throughout the four-hour work.  Dice also determined how long certain tracks would be played. We didn't allow the longest compositions to play all the way through, thus creating more variety in the "composition".

 When jokers were drawn, we agreed that random portions of last week's ADN, hosted by dj What the!@#%*!  would be played.  Dj What the!@#%*!  has championed the music of John Cage here at KBOO for many years. Here again, dice determined how long these excerpts would be played.

We hope that you enjoy this listening experience as much as we enjoyed making it happen. And we hope that Mr. Cage would have approved...  What do you think?

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 will present Cage-related programming throughout the month of September.  This first program on September 3rd will be an extended 3-hour show (8-11 pm) with Dr. Zomb and Andy Hosch co-hosting.   Then tune in on the 10th and the 17th at the show's regular time (8-10 pm). Hosts: Alejandro Ceballos (10th) and DJ What the.....!? (17th).  And on Monday, September 24, we'll present a four-hour finale (7-11 pm) with lots of us mixing Cage's music live in the air room, with track selection and order of play determined by Cagean chance operations.

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, Joelle Léandre, Miya Masaoka, Gordon Mumma, Maggi Payne, and James Tenney --much of it in an electronic or electroacoustic vein. host: Andy Hosch.
