Read the news! New clips + tunes!
  • Next week! Peggy Madden is guest co-host for the first of a pair of shows on alternative listening. But she says "Don't call me the New Age queen!", so we've no idea what she'll bring with her. We're also getting ready some other cool special shows -- one on acousmatics prepped by Ian Chuprun, and more than a dozen interviews we'll be taping in New York City in January.

Kalvos & Damian Continuous Radio on Mp3.com
  • Many of you know that K&D has begun streaming live in ShoutCast as well as RealAudio (with our archives in RealAudio), but you can now listen to a changing Kalvos and Damian New Music Bazaar selected loop on Mp3.com -- 75 or more compositions! Go to http://stations.mp3s.com/stations/1/kalvos_and_damians_new_mu1.html and listen to the special Bazaar in 28.8 streaming MP3 or in hi-fi streaming MP3 for those of you with fast connections. You can also download individual compositions that you enjoy. We'll be changing the four-hour loop every few weeks, so drop by for a listen!

Backup server link
  • Our main server was down extensively the weekend of October 23. We scrambled to post an alternate site, but most of you come to K&D via the main www.goddard.edu/kalvos entrance & couldn't find us at all! In the future, we'll make sure that a second pretty good copy of K&D is available at kalvos.org. So please click and and bookmark this K&D backup link: http://kalvos.org/ We can't promise this backup site will have everything new -- and it certainly won't have any of the sound files -- but it will give you a peek at playlists, composer pages, resources, etc., if our heavy iron goes awry!
  • Our thanks always to Ravi Nielsen at Goddard College, who works above and beyond to keep K&D up and running! We composers may be fanatical about working 24/7, but most sane people don't, so we built our K&D site mirror. Now we can leave him alone on weekends.
  • Guest composers: Be sure to keep a copy of the backup link handy. Your composer pages will have the same name as they do on the main server; in other words, yourpage.html will be backed up to http://kalvos.org/yourpage.html
October 31
New clips
  • We're catching up on our composer interview clips thanks to Damian's heroic efforts. Listen to four-minute clips of Henning Berg, Bill Gilliam, Daron Hagen, Tom Hamilton, and John Oswald. These join recently posted interview clips with Gary Barwin, Anita Beckmann, Udo Kasemets, Robert H.P. Platz, and James Tenney.
  • We've got our playlists back up to date. If you've missed any of these shows, you'll find they are absolutely terrific -- a month of composer comments, sponsored by a special grant from John Blinn. We'll have those shows posted in the next month so you can catch up. We'll also be catching up on the missing composer pages. With many new guests, we've been swamped with work. (Don't forget to send a contribution to help us finish this work!)
  • Upcoming on November 13 will be Masahiro Miwa, coming to K&D from Japan as part of his week-long residency at Dartmouth College. Don't miss this amazing electroacoustic/sampling artist!
  • You can listen to our show in RealAudio from the link above, but we're presently experimenting with Shoutcast as well. If you can connect at high speed, go to WGDR's home page and choose the link to the Shoutcast stream. (Shoutcast is only available for selected shows, including K&D.)

Ouch -- our server was down 30 hours
  • Our main server was down for 30 hours this weekend. We scrambled to post an alternate site, but most of you come to K&D via the main www.goddard.edu/kalvos entrance & couldn't find us at all! In the future, we'll make sure that a second pretty good copy of K&D is available at kalvos.org. So please click and and bookmark this K&D backup link: http://kalvos.org/index2.html We can't promise this backup site will have everything new -- and it certainly won't have any of the sound files -- but it will give you a peek at playlists, composer pages, resources, etc., if our heavy iron goes awry! Remember, the regular kalvos.org link will bring you back here, so bookmark http://kalvos.org/index2.html

This show was produced in cooperation with Dartmouth College's Hopkins Center.

Miller, Phil Kline and Stephen Smith have joined us, and James Bohn is coming on August 21 with his music, including BABYlon. We'll be posting the past two months of shows in the next few weeks ... you won't want to miss these! Whoa!
  • We broke 100K! During the first week of August, Kalvos & Damian recorded its 100,000th visitor. Even in these days of that many visitors to CNN in a few hours, it's good to know that the Internet lets us reach out with new music.

What are You Missing?
  • The K&D site has grown large. To us, it's intimate, but with over 3,000 documents, you may have missed a few things. Here are some:
    • Every five shows, co-host David Gunn produces Best of the Bazaar, a six-minute sound collage that's a wild romp through ten hours of K&D!
    • Our upcoming guests are always listed along with the latest playlist.
    • The complete list of K&D guests, past and upcoming, with links to their pages on our site, is found on the composer index page.
    • 32 remarkable and diverse essays by composers are linked to individual composer pages, and also indexed on the essays page -- where you can also ready all 229 show introductions by David Gunn.

Get ready: T-Shirt Design Contest!
  • In just a few weeks we'll be announcing our official Design-the-K&D-T-Shirt Contest! We're looking for the coolest & bizarrest (bazaarest) T-Shirt Design. The rules will be simple (gotta say "Kalvos & Damian's New Music Bazaar" and "Your Red Alert for New Music", but anything else is up to you), and we'll be the final darn judges! Prize will be a basket of new music CDs and other goodies. Look for it!

New shows, new guests!
  • Yes, working hard! A special treat has arrived for listeners to the K&D live cybercast: Show IDs created by dozens of our guest composers! We have 20 IDs in queue, and some are pretty cool! Hear Eve Beglarian, Richard Tolenaar, James Grant, Gwyneth Walker, N.N. und Ähnliche Elemente, Eric Honour, Eufrasio Prates, Michael Manion, Matthew Fields and others! And yes, we're working overtime! Nine new shows are posted on KalvoNet! There are no inteviews in this batch -- Kui Dong, Charles Amirkhanian, Margaret Lancaster and Scott L. Miller are comin' up, though -- but include topics such as Ears Over Easy, march music, Wimmintune (two shows), Music of War and Stress, and our ever-popular fundraising segments. These join nine other shows recently posted of interview programs with Calliope Tsoupaki, John McGuire, Michael Frengel and K&D's own Dennis Báthory-Kitsz, as well as a show of new releases, a show on art song, and one filled with short compositions. We've also got new interview clips with Mary Jane Leach, Louis Andriessen, and Dietmar Hippler, a few more segments from The Garden of Cyrus by Eve Beglarian, plus the complete String Quartet No. 2 by Richard Tolenaar. Late last year, six new shows became available on KalvoNet! Hear interview programs with N.N. und ähnliche Elemente and K&D's own David Gunn. We also celebrated Electroacoustic Music Week in November, fretted over political music, invented a new award, and last but not least played the marches, fanfares and dances of impeachment! These new shows join recent show postings of interviews with Mary Jane Leach (with new pix on her page), Steve Gryc (new pix on his page) and Michael Sahl (new commentary by Boudewijn Buckinx on his page), as well as our shows on choral music (a followup to Mary Jane's interview), on composer-rather-than-philosopher John Cage (he wrote great stuff!), and some birthday folks. See a new pix of David Stevens and more info.
