other minds radio

Other Minds, the new music community based in San Francisco and best known for its annual Other Minds festival, has launched, a site that provides streaming audio from their catalog of interviews, lectures and performances.  There’s a 1963 interview with John Cage, a 1983 interview with Philip Glass, a 1965 Trombone piece by Pauline Oliveros and dozens of other great finds. 

Of particular note is guitarist David Tanenbaum performing Lou Harrison’s Scenes from Nek Chand on a National Steel.  I saw Tanenbaum perform that yesterday at a fund raiser for Other Minds, and it’s really something else.
