Selections from the Other Minds Archives

The Other Minds Archives contain recordings of interviews, documentaries, panel discussions, and performances of innovative contemporary music, as well as spoken word and conceptual art. These were gathered from a variety of sources, most importantly from the Music Department of KPFA-FM Radio, the listener-sponsored Pacifica Foundation station (1949-1995) and from concerts produced by Other Minds (1993-present). The various collections present a West Coast perspective on national and international developments in new music, following changes in styles and instrumental resources through the 20th and 21st Centuries.

This sampler features excerpts from selected programs available for free listening at archives.otherminds.org. This physical 2-CD set of 44 selections with the voices of John Cage, Henry Cowell, Peggy Glanville-Hicks, Anthony Braxton, and Conlon Nancarrow, among others, is available here for only the cost of shipping, and as a digital download on our Bandcamp page.
