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

Rare tracks from Don Joyce and Negativland

Tonight on A Different Nature, we'll be featuring rare tracks from Don Joyce and Negativland.

Don Joyce joined Negativland after the Contra Costa California experimental collective joined him on his KPFA radio program Over the Edge (probably one of the longest running free-form, audio collage shows still in existence).
 A long time visual artist, Joyce was inspired by Negativland's approach to collage in the audio medium and some began utilizing cut-and-paste tape collages to his program and subsequent Negativland recordings. He brought a dizzying array of cut-up sounds and recontextualized agitprop to Negativland's sound, where before they were more in line with Industrial Music, Musique Concrete, etc..

 This Monday on A Different Nature, we'll have a pResident's Day Special, with the music of San Francisco legends The Residents, currently celebrating 40 years of anonymous fame.

We'll also have an interview with a gentleman who's been with the group from the start. Homer Flynn has been the artistic and creative director, spokesperson and eyeball wrangler from the band's infancy. We'll have all kinds of questions for Mr. Flynn, as well as getting to the bottom of a four-decade long KBOO rumor.

Plus, Residents songs both familiar and rare.

The Residents are appearing later in the week, on Friday the 22nd, at The Hawthorne Theater.

Hope you can tune in!

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.

Description

On A Different Nature we played 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 heard two reharsal recordings from 1977-78, and a live recrding at the Frederic Chopin Concert Hall, June 25th, 1977.

*******************************************************

En A Different Nature, estuvimos escuchando a Krol Voldarepet Knact Didáctico, que era un proyecto de música didáctica, experimentación colectiva de sonidos y atmósferas, cuya estructura básica la conformaban: Marco Antonio "TZARA" Godines en el sintetizador Roland sh1, Arturo Meza en el sintetizador de cuerdas ARP OMNI y guitarra acústica, Juan Wolfgang Cruz en el Violoncelo y Bajo Eléctrico y Víctor Soto en la guitarra eléctrica; el sonido que ellos lograban era una amalgama de extrañas texturas, que en momentos sonaban espaciales y psicodélicos, en momentos el sonido era desesperante y misterioso...
Se tocaron grabaciones de ensayos de 1977-78, y una grabacion en vivo den La Sala Federico Chopin en la Ciudad de México, el 25 de junio de 1977.

This week on A Different Nature, we featured Dutch Ambient and Soundscape artist Arno Peeters.

"Arno started tape music in the early '80's and evolved to electronic music. First as the EBM-duo Voltage Control (2 EP's and one CD-album on Antler) and later as one of the first techno-artists in The Netherlands with some EP's on Djax-Up-Beats, as part of Random XS and Urban Electro and solo as Spasms. He turned away from techno to more experiMental stuff on his album 'Fuzzy Logic' and migrated to the German Mille Plateaux-label which released the award-winning AeroSon and two tracks on compilations. Nowadays he composes in 5.1 surround and makes a living with producing a weekly radioshow on electronic music (Folio on Dutch National Radio 6) and (as the one-man company Tape TV Productions) editing, mixing and mastering all kinds of projects from the no-budget fine art to the high profile and the cutting edge."

John Cage/Andrew HoschLe Cage Concrète: 52 miniatures to be played in random sequenceLe Cage ConcrèteEpitonium

September 5th is the birthday of the American composer John Cage. He would have been 99 this year. In 2012, to celebrate the centenary of Cage's birth, we here at  A Different Nature, elsewhere on KBOO, and in Portland's new music community, will be presenting Cage-related programming throughout the year.

Tonight's Cage birthday celebration brings you the audio track from the 1983 Peter Greenaway film, Four American Composers, Vol. 1: John Cage.  This documentary sheds light on Cage's musical philosophy. It was based on a series of performances of music by John Cage to celebrate his 70th birthday at St. James Church Islington, London. If you would like to view the film, someone has posted it on youtube. 

The second hour of the show will feature "Le Cage Concrète", a series of 52 miniatures constructed from fragments of performances of Cage's music, averaging 1 1/2 minutes each in duration. These 52 short pieces are intended to be played in random sequence.  The possible combinations are astronomical: approximately 80 to the 67th power (80 with 67 zeroes...)  "Le Cage Concrète" was constructed in 1998 by Andrew Hosch, currently a host of this program.

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
