The Nature of Music 13: Charles Amirkhanian

Event, EV.NOM.2020.01.19

Composer Charles Amirkhanian began incorporating ambient sounds in his music in the 1970s and long has championed others who share his interest. On the 75th anniversary of his birthday (January 19, 1945, 4:37pm, Fresno, California) his music was featured on the 13th installment of our series “The Nature of Music,” in a special benefit concert that doubles as a record release party for his new 2-CD set Loudspeakers on the New World Records label. At this concert, Amirkhanian discussed his music with composer and author Kyle Gann (a member of the faculty at Bard College), the program annotator for Loudspeakers, and presented surround sound performances of two of the works on the compilation: Im Frühling and Son of Metropolis San Francisco. This concert took place on January 19, 2020 at the Goldman Theater at the David Brower Center in Berkeley.
