What's This? Advertising!?
  • Times are rough all around, and K&D's financial support is thinning along with that for other arts groups. So we're selling out! T-shirts, mugs, recordings. So head for out page with items for sale, or click one of the images on the right. CDs from Pogus, Logos, THUMP, Margaret Lancaster, Mary Lou Newmark, Waveformation, James Bohn, MaltedMedia, Frédéric Rossille; Festival T-shirts; Vermont composer mugs; 100-page program/essay book, and special 1- and 3-CD limited editions of "NonPop NoBounds" from on-air K&D performances and presentations. For those waiting: the special editions are done and just about ready to ship!
  • The latest composer up for distortion is Guy de Bièvre. Distort him!
  • Shows #328-338 are now available! Catch up with interviews you missed, along with our special September 11 reflections. Our September 11 programs began with show #328, WTC Reflections. Shows #329-330 welcomed guest Emily Doolittle, and we had a recently-received releases show (#331) the following week. October 13 saw our second WTC Reflections (#332). We took a look at new trends in live & electronic performance (#333) and improvisation (#334), followed by a surprise visit from composer Fred Szymanski on show #335. Our final September 11 reflections, The Towers Recalled III, was show #336, and we just completed our on-the-road visit with Martín Alejandro Fumarola on show #337-338. They are all here!
  • Our audio is available on the kalvos.org server courtesy of pair Networks. We've been a long-time pair Networks customer, and recommend them. Our audio streaming is sponsored by the brilliant faculty of the Princeton String Academy. More information and a link soon -- our thanks to them! Viva violas! (Because there is no Real Audio server, it is not possible to scan through the audio quickly. The live Saturday cybercast will return in late November.)
  • There is a new essay by Scott Johnson, The Counterpoint of Species. Don't miss it! Ten chapters of insight and challenge! Also check out the other 50 essays by composers.
  • The New York Times article, "Elegies and Tone Poems Respond to Tragedy," appeared on Monday, October 29. Read Matthew Mirapaul's thoughtful piece about The September 11 Musical Gallery on K&D. A Musical Gallery of the September 11 Tragedies contains the music sent to us in response to our request. More than 50 compositions can be heard in a 6-hour online concert.
  • We have replaced our previous site search with the WhatUSeek search. Although we've been reluctant to use an off-site searcher because of the advertising and desire for local control over our indexing, it's become important to get the search feature back up and running.

Entire K&D Website Being Restored to pair Networks Server
  • The old goddard.edu server is gone. That's where all our shows were stored, and we wave a grateful goodbye to its service over the past six years. We are moving all our audio to the kalvos.org server at pair Networks, in progress over the course of October 27-31. The live Saturday cybercast is presently down, but will return in November.
    • We still need a sponsor (perhaps you?) for the move of kalvos.org to a high-capacity server. The special support from pair Networks still results in a net increase to K&D of $100 per month. Contact us if you will sponsor this for a year.
    • Once we finish uploading the archives, the latest shows will be converted within a few days of broadcast and posted to kalvos.org. When the live stream returns, we'll return to our usual laggard ways.

Server, Shows to be Down Several Weeks
  • The goddard.edu server will be coming down for several weeks. That's where all our shows are stored; the goddard.edu network is being rebuilt from the ground up. We've moved some of our audio to the kalvos.org server, but are running out of space. The live Saturday cybercast will also be down. In the interim, here are our plans:
    1. Critical audio files will be moved to kalvos.org and access to them will be transparent. We have only 100MB of space left at kalvos.org, so only the most important files will be moved.
    2. We are searching for a sponsor (perhaps you?) to the move of kalvos.org to a high-capacity server. The cost for this is an additional $120 per month. contact us if you will sponsor this for a year
    3. The latest shows will be archived within a few days of broadcast and posted to kalvos.org. Because of their size (approximately 18.5MB each), the shows will be limited to the last month's archives until the goddard.edu server returns.
  • A reminder that A Musical Gallery of the September 11 Tragedies is available, containing the music sent to us in response to our request. If you are interested in mp3 files from our September 11 Gallery, now is the time to get them. They will also be off-line during the goddard.edu rebuild (or until we find a sponsor for the kalvos.org move to a high-capacity server). The RealAudio files will remain in place.
  • We have replaced our previous site search with the WhatUSeek search. Although we've been reluctant to use an off-site searcher because of the advertising and desire for local control over our indexing, it's become important to get the search feature back up and running. So if you like it, please tell us!

Server Struggling
  • We're asking your patience with our audio files on the goddard.edu server. That's where all our shows are stored; something is amiss, and service is slow to nil. We've moved some of our audio to the pair server, but are running out of space (see September 21 notice).
  • T-shirts, mugs, CDs, and other goods are available.
  • Our latest shows are ready! #319-327 are up, with interviews as well as our Ought-One Festival samplers. Here the complete interviews with Samuel Vriezen and Martijn Voorvelt recorded in Amsterdam (#319-320), the altered states of David Stevens recorded in Bishop's Stortford UK (#321), an in-studio visit with David Heuser (#322), the interesting experiences of new music entrepreneur André Posman recorded at De Rode Pomp in Ghent (#323), and the two-part conversation with Guy de Bièvre recorded at the Logos Foundation in Ghent (#326-327).
  • The Ought-One Festival of Nonpop on August 25-26 in Montpelier, Vermont is over, with wonderful results. nearly 40 concerts and presentations and installations took place, and you can read about it on the Ought-One Festival Homepage. There are the wonderful news and reviews of the Festival, going up as we receive them, and you can see the wonderful drawings created by Robert Bonotto.
  • We're still about $1900 short of paying for Ought-One, so if our Urgent Appeal didn't pop up automatically, please click here. Don't miss the bonus CDs offered for contributions in our popup, and souvenir passports, T-shirts, CDs, etc.! Free gifts with contributions, too.

New Searcher
  • We have replaced our down searcher with the WhatUSeek searcher.

So if you like it, please tell us!

Goddard Servers Down
  • Our www.goddard.edu server has been up and down for two days, meaning our audio files are variously off line. Combined with the crippling effect of a four-month loss of our search feature, we are wondering how to approach this problem for the long term. We are now on line for six years (and have won national awards for our work), yet have jockeyed our audio around several times, from local home servers to AudioNet to Broadcast.com and to our generous but overstressed Goddard hosts. Kalvos.org itself has been stable for some time, and would be our choice for a permanent home, but its disk space limit is 400MB -- one-twelfth what K&D uses today. We don't have the budget for our own connection (T-1 is $1,800/month in this area), and commercial web space is still costly, considering what we consume (even at $.10 per MB overcharges, our site would cost $480/month). We're exploring this with the kalvos.org service provider (the acclaimed pair networks, whose uptime vanishingly approaches 100%), but have no solution yet. Ideas are welcome (along with open credit card accounts!).

And a few wonderful organizations have come through, including Coda Music Technology (the Finale people), Pogus, OO Discs, ASCAP, Trans-Video.Net, and our own Northfield Savings Bank.

These join recently posted interviews with Frederic Rzewski (#307-308) and Yannis Kyriakides (#309-310), as well as the Low Countries Preview (#306). Don't forget the earlier 2001 visits with Claudio Calmens and his live concert (#300), our three-way Internet improvisation from Vermont, Georgia, and Japan with Robert Duckworth, Roddy Schrock, and Tadashi Usami (#304), our Cheap History of Time (in two parts, #298 and #301); our Cheap History of Computers in Music (#302 and #303); and our homage to Iannis Xenakis (#299).

  • We begin 7 years on the air in May. Good for us (I think!), but we've run in the red every year. We may go to a subscription model for our show archives. We can avoid that. Our counter shows 266,737 visitors since 1997, more than 24 million hits (based on our visitor:hit stas). If every page visitor had contributed a penny per hit since we began, we'd have paid for the show, site, the upcoming Ought-One Festival and, our transcription and resources projects, as well as CDs of the live performances. We may indeed ask for subscriptions to our upcoming Festival, but contributions now can avoid all of that. If you're reading this, Contribute now via PayPal, or go to our funding page. Thank you!

We're back from our Low Countries interview tour, our hardware is working again (What, coming home to no power, no water, no heat, no Internet, and boiling snow on the wood stove?

  • The silly continues. We have arranged to use the famous AlexWarp Java applet by Alex Rosen. It was popularized during the U.S. presidential election and even mentioned in Time. So ask for your favorite K&D guest composers, and we'll put 'em up for distortion. Third face up on K&D's Distort-a-Composer Page is James Bohn. Distort him!

  • Please take this opportunity to contribute to K&D's projects. The gift we received in October from the Argosy Foundation gave us some planning room. Now we're asking for your continued support by helping Kalvos & Damian complete the work of transcribing interviews, presenting more composers to listeners, and deepening this long-time web resource. The K&D site received 60,000 visitors and over 5 million "hits" in 2000, with fourteen monetary contributions during that time. Head for our contact page to mail us a contribution, go to our funding page to read more about what we do and how your contribution will be used and how it is tax-deductible (to the extent provided by law, etc., etc.), or simply click this link to make a PayPal contribution or click any one of the PayPal icons found on every K&D page (if you sign up through our link, we'll also get a $5 bonus). Help us move ahead with the cool composers you've met on Kalvos & Damian's New Music Bazaar.
  • Kalvos & Damian's latest report to contributors is available in PDF format.

No April Fools!
  • There was no K&D show on March 31. Heavy snow caused power failures throughout northern Vermont, and both the studio/transmitter and servers were taken down. Show No. 306 -- a preview of our European guests for this year -- is postponed to April 7.
  • March 24 playlists are up. Finally, after a European tour, plane failures, massive snow, power failures, and server issues, our March 24 playlist is available. Phew. We gotta move.
  • Lotta catchin' up to do. We'll be posting announcements in the next few weeks. Great new interviews just recorded in Europe (see the latest playlist for upcoming guests), more on the Ought-One Festival and its 80 composer appearances, and more archived shows for your pleasure.
March 20
Out of Sync, No Playlists
  • Our kalvos.org and goddard.edu pages are out of sync due to access issues at goddard.edu. It's a minor problem, but won't be fixed until April 1, when Kalvos returns from an interview tour in Amsterdam, Brussels, and Gent. That also means playlists for the March 24/31 shows won't be up until then.
March 17
Coming Up...
  • Contraptionology. What? Next week, when Kalvos is on the road brushing interviews into the basket for this spring, Damian will let you know what Contraptionology is all about. March 24!
  • Robert Duckworth, Roddy Schrock, and Tadashi Usami were our guests on March 17. If you missed this show created live as a trio on the Internet from Georgia and Tokyo, look for the archived show in a few weeks. This was a killer show! An hour-long electroacoustic creation started with Robert's stream from Macon, Georgia, sent to Tokyo, where Roddy and Tadashi further developed it with their own electroacoustic work, and sent a stream directly to Kalvos & Damian in Vermont. Brilliant! We'll let you know when this show is posted.

New Shows are Posted!
  • Shows #291-297 are now available. If you missed them live, now's the time to listen to the second set of shows in our Winter Anti-Solstice show (#291), the incredibly popular Composers' Wisdom series (#292-295), along with a birthday homage to David Tudor (#296), and a preview of composers coming to the Ought-One Festival along with newly received recordings (#297). In the Composers' Wisdom set, iterview clips and tunes from 48 composers span all the styles at the turn of the century. (The earlier series was broadcast in 1999 and is still available.) These join the previous shows, including recent interviews with David W. Solomons (#286 and #288), Alexander Abele (#289), and Brenda Hutchinson (#289-290). David gives us a perspective that you don't often hear on K&D -- the Renaissance Musician from multiple points of view. Alex reveals how he handles many styles, forms, and sizes with great craftsmanship. And Brenda takes her piano in the U-Haul and sings an "Eee-yah!" version of the Tennessee Waltz. Don't miss 'em!
  • Use our Site Map. It has info you won't see except in past notices. Have a look at the complete site map page. If Javascript works on your browser, there's a more general droplist at the top of this index page.
  • The Living Composers Project is being hosted by Kalvos & Damian, and is now available with late January updates! Check out the work by Dan Albertson. We'll be the Living Composers Project for our own reference point here at K&D.

Listener Favorites and The New Besto Is Up!
  • Next week (January 20) is the annual Listener Favorites show. Send us an email nominating your favorite piece from the past 25 years (that start is 1976, folks, so no Webern), preferably from among our composer guests. If we have it, we'll play it!
  • Best of the Bazaar Mark LVIII is posted. David "Damian" Gunn hits us again in his uncanny style with yet another sound collage. Plunderphonics phooey! This is the real stuff, 200 proof. And if you're really nuts, you can list to all of them without pause for nearly seven hours.

Happy Holidays!
  • Happy New Year to all! We're planning on a great year of interviews, fun, and revelations, and hope you'll join us. We're wrapping up our Composers' Wisdom series next week -- brief comments by composers and one piece of their music. We enjoy the chance to reflect on and whoop along with the diversity of new music outside the "popular" genres.
  • The silly continues. We have arranged to use the famous AlexWarp Java applet by Alex Rosen. It was popularized during the U.S. presidential election and even mentioned in Time.

  • Along with the new US President, Kalvos & Damian will be unveiling a new site upgrade on January 20. Navigation will be just as easy, and there will be no frames, invasive scripts, or other silliness to stand in your way. We'll keep our new, wonderful graphics. But we'll be updating and revamping composer pages, and finally getting to the upgrade of music resources, composer resources, and recording labels. We'll also give the graffiti page some revamping, and hope to get new goodies from the composers as well. Look for new music samples and interview clips.
  • The New Year is your first opportunity to contribute to K&D's projects. The gift we received in October from the Argosy Foundation gave Dennis and David, the creators of Kalvos & Damian, a little planning room.
