New Interview Clips Posted!
December 29
New Shows Posted! Contribute at Year's End!
  • New shows are posted! Our interview with Kyoko Kobayashi is posted, with short answers that had both Kalvos and Damian scrambling, and the one with Daniel Goode, who had long answers that amounted to the same flummoxing of K & D. Oh, and don't another of our "Composers' Wisdom" series, featuring interview clips & music of Alexander Abele, Laurie Anderson, Matt Borghi, Boudewijn Buckinx, Cory Carlick, Moniek Darge, Guy de Bièvre, and Emily Doolittle. The series continues for the next three weeks! These shows join the recent two-parter with Michael Boriskin's detailed views on new music, complete with George Perle analysis & demo, followed by Steven Holochwost's tonal approach to the serial techniques, and K&D's own latest favorite tunes! Playlists are finally up, too.
  • It's the end of the year! Use K&D as your tax haven! Yes, a contribution to K&D, a project of the VCME, benefits both of us. We've got a big festival coming up, too, and are finally getting projects underway that have been waiting. So please contact us directly or click the PayPal links.

Wonderful Start to Winter
  • Aside from 12 inches of snow, that is. Kalvos & Damian's New Music Bazaar has received a major grant from The Argosy Foundation for the continued support of its work in new music. We can re-start several projects we began two years ago, and begin planning other enhancements to the website and interviews. Look for them!
  • Our guest this week is Kyoko Kobayashi. We'll be recording that interview at Dartmouth today (Friday, December 20), for broadcast on the first day of winter! With K&D, ya never know how it'll go, so listen when the show is posted (streaming of the live broadcast remains down).
  • The Kalvos & Damian Board of Advisors guides us in artistic and practical planning, ongoing economic crises, intellectual property rights issues, and much more. We welcome new member Mary Lou Newmark, composer and electro-violinist from California to our board. She joins the recent new board members Don Corson of Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland; Steve Layton of Seattle; and John McGuire of New York City. Our thanks to them and to the other 22 members of our international board for their continued advice and ideas!
  • Do you prefer MP3 format? We have used RealAudio on this site since 1995. Our arrangements with composers and record labels keep us at a modem-streaming mono format for archived shows, but we want to move to MP3/32K streaming. We have posted all shows since August 10 in dual formats. We do not plan to convert our earlier 370-plus shows. That means two players (Real and MP3) to listen to everything. Also, MP3 files are 50% bigger than RealAudio. So we really need your feedback on whether to switch. Please let's hear from you!
  • Loyal fans and composers Canary Burton, Steve Layton, and Matt Fields set the pace as the only K&D listeners making regular monthly support contributions. Why don't you? A few dollars a month will do it. Contact us directly or click the PayPal links. If you wonder why you should, read the latest Report to Contributors. The document, which contains a brief history from 1995-2001 and a financial picture of the past year, is in PDF format.
  • If your local radio station would like to broadcast K&D, we'll be happy to supply the show on a pair of CDs at a nominal cost. Please contact us for information.
  • September 11 Musical Gallery is one of our most listened-to features. The New York Times article, "Elegies and Tone Poems Respond to Tragedy," appeared on October 29, 2001. Read Matthew Mirapaul's thoughtful piece about this collection on K&D.
  • Have you been listening to Ought-One? Almost the entire Ought-One Festival (More about Ought-One itself is found here, including some great reviews.) has been broadcast and cybercast on K&D, and is archived in our 2001 and 2002 shows. Check out the audio archives and playlists for more info, or our past notices for a brief description of these festival concert shows.
December 3
Where the Heck Have We Been?
  • Away, busy, and composing. The show has gone on, while we've had performances and some new ones (look for Michael Arnowitt doing the music of both Kalvos (Dennis Báthory-Kitsz) and Damian (David Gunn) in performance at the FlynnSpace (Burlington, Vermont, December 3), Bethanienklooster (Barndesteeg 6, Amsterdam, December 9), Stichting Nieuwe Muziek (Kloveniersdoelen, Middelburg, Zeeland, December 10), and De Rode Pomp (Tussen 't Pas 3, Gent, December 12).
  • Latest shows have been posted! The usual late fall melange: Canadian Classix, Beano's Favorites, Fundraising Tunes, and a witty interview with the aforementioned Michael Arnowitt, whom we took advantage of as he was showing the strains of learning so many new pieces!
November 3
Latest Shows Going Up!
  • Latest shows are being posted as I speak! We've got three excellent new shows now available in RealAudio (mp3 is being uploaded -- takes a while!): The second part of Michael Boriskin's detailed views on new music, complete with George Perle analysis & demo, followed by Steven Holochwost's tonal approach to the serial techniques, and finally K&D's own latest favorite tunes! Playlists aren't up yet, as both Kalvos and Damian have been very busy once again. Soon, though, so you can know what our faves really are!
October 15
Latest Shows Posted!
  • Latest shows have been posted! We've got two remarkable new shows now available: Tom Heasley presented a stunning live concert in the studio, and Michael Boriskin gave detailed views & demos in new music. Michael's interview is in two parts, so look for the second half next week!
October 1
Where Have We Been!?
  • Yes, we've been right here. The Kalvos & Damian New Music Bazaar has been on the air every week, but we have been attending to our own music! David "Damian" Gunn has had the premiere of his A Tangoed Web by the Vermont Symphony Orchestra -- ten performances in all -- and Dennis "Kalvos" Báthory-Kitsz has been composing pieces for Eric Lyon, Michael Manion, and Michael Arnowitt. So K&D will be scarce in the new few weeks, but will update the site as often as possible.
  • Latest shows have been posted! We've got three great new shows now available: A Year Onward, our post-9/11 reflections; Avant-Garde Continuum that presents a variety of German and Austrian composers and performers; and our interview with James Grant. We've been waiting for that one for over 7 years!
  • The good news: WGDR has six months more. There's been an ongoing power struggle between a recalcitrant Goddard College Board of Trustees and the WGDR Community Programmers (who have created up 75% of the programming in the past, and now 100% of the programming since Goddard has shuttered its on-campus programs) and their 1,000 community supporters. To hang onto the license, the Goddard Board has extended the station's closing deadline for six months -- despite the fact that the Friends of WGDR has been proposing that the community purchase the license since the crisis came about in May ... when Goddard College's serious financial difficulties resulted in their disaccreditation and on-campus shutdown. The Board has refused this option, but the additional six months is time to continue negotiation. If you're not a "radio person", especially in the United States, then you may not be aware that a combination of National Public Radio (a quasi-commercial conglomerate) and religious broadcasters have been purchasing stations from colleges. This has resulted in the near-total destruction of community radio in the U.S. Alas, WGDR, K&D's home station, could be next.
September 1
New Advisor Welcomed to K&D Board!
  • The Kalvos & Damian Board of Advisors guides us in artistic and practical planning, ongoing economic crises, intellectual property rights issues, and much more. We welcome new member Mary Lou Newmark, composer and electro-violinist from California to our board. She joins the recent new board members Don Corson of Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland; Steve Layton of Seattle; and John McGuire of New York City. Our thanks to them and to the other 22 members of our international board for their continued advice and ideas!
  • Here are the recently posted K&D shows:. The August 17 show, our non-tribute to Elvis, "No Tears or Candles" is now available in our archives section. Even better than this is the August 24 show, our interview with Elliott Schwartz, co-hosted by composer Matt Borghi. This is a show of great music, great insight, and some side-splitting fun. The August 10 show, Concert #37 of the Ought-One Festival is a performance of A Sleeper's Notebook by Eleanor Sandresky. This is an exquisite & mysterious performance of a portion of a longer work for "choreographed piano" that was premiered after Ought-One. The August 3 show, Concert #36 of the Ought-One Festival is a performance of Custer and Sitting Bull by Kyle Gann Powerful and disturbing as well as gentle in musical character, full of non-tempered tuning systems! This joins The Bilitis Project by Eve Beglarian and Phil Kline. Also, the intense & detailed July 20 interview with George Lewis is posted. One heck of a show that generated phone calls and followup email -- don't miss it! Show #371 has intense commentary about politics and music from returning guest Howard Jonathan Fredrics and a live performance by Lori Joachim Fredrics. Shows #366-370 include our interviews with Steve Layton and Laurie Anderson, and the captivating Tom Heasley performing his Montpelier Meditations at Ought-One. Find our archived shows by year in the archives.
  • Do you prefer MP3 format? We have used RealAudio on this site for nearly eight years. Our arrangements with composers and record labels keep us at a modem-streaming mono format for our archived shows, but we are considering moving to MP3/32K streaming. We will not convert our earlier 370-plus shows, however -- meaning two players are needed. Also, the MP3 files are 50% bigger than RealAudio, and will eat up more server space and more of Kalvos's upload time. So we really need your feedback on whether to switch. Test files are now available for our current shows. Please let's hear from you!
  • For those of you following the crisis here at WGDR-FM 91.1 in Plainfield, Vermont, WGDR broadcasts will continue, at least during a two-month negotiation period (until October 5). The live stream, like that of 10,000 other webcasters, has shut down, but our archives remain available. You can check Friends of WGDR to see the origins and progress of this issue, and how the local community is fundraising to purchase the station. Kalvos & Damian is not in jeopardy as a web entity -- we took steps to protect our show and its guests by establishing kalvos.org five years ago, expanded with our complete audio archives last year through the good graces of pair Networks, with audio funding from the Princeton String Academy. We'll keep you updated, and in the meantime additional contributions will help us assure that Kalvos & Damian can continue to produce the show without WGDR's facilities, should that happen.

August 18
We are Testing MP3 Format
  • Do you prefer MP3 format? Years ago, in the stone ages (May 1995) we started with MPEG 2, TrueSpeech, and RealAudio 1.0. We discontinued MP2 and TrueSpeech by 1997, but we have continued to use RealAudio on this site through RealAudio 5.0, with a few samples in other formats. Our arrangements with composers and record labels kept us at a modem-streaming mono format for our archived shows. Recently, however, the RealAudio player has become more invasive and we are considering moving to MP3/32K mono streaming. We will not be able to convert our earlier 370-plus shows, however -- meaning two players are still needed. Also, the MP3/32K files are 50% bigger than RealAudio, and will eat up more server space and more of Kalvos's upload time. So we really need your feedback on whether to switch to MP3 format. A pair of test files is available for show #375. Thanks for your opinions!

George Lewis Interview is Posted
July 20
Goodbye for Now, WGDR Listeners!
  • Our final WGDR broadcast concluded today with the playing of the 6451st piece on K&D, Kenneth Gaburo's Exit Music I: The Wasting of Lucrecetzia. The title is especially ironic, since it was also our very first piece on May 27, 1995. Nevertheless, we will be here every week with brand-new shows as we continue to produce Kalvos & Damian in other locations. We're also exploring providing K&D to other interested broadcast stations. So WGDR listeners, we'll see you someday again, but every day on line!
  • Today's interview with George Lewis will be posted soon.
July 15
Now is the Time.
  • We are live for one last time next week, July 20. K&D will continue on-line until we find another home station, or are able to distribute the show through some other means. Our live stream is gone. You can check Friends of WGDR to see the origins and progress of this possible loss, and how the local community is fundraising to purchase the station.

Latest Show Available; WGDR Still to Close
  • Yesterday's show #371 is now posted! We heard intense commentary about politics and music from returning guest Howard Jonathan Fredrics, and a live performance by Lori Joachim Fredrics. This show joins shows #366-370 which include our interviews with Steve Layton and Laurie Anderson, and Tom Heasley performing at Ought-One.
  • Goddard College will still close WGDR on July 26. This is the last chance to get your support email in, and join the Friends of WGDR. See WGDR.net for more info and signup. Please continue to send your support email to (respectively) pro and con Goddard trustees Jonathan Woocher and Ellen Ratner, with a copy to Friends of WGDR president Dennis Darrah. Please address them to us and we will forward them so their email addresses are not harvested by spambots! Thank you! And thanks to all for the supportive email and contributions. K&D will continue as an archived cybershow (without live streaming), and our air and performance studios are scheduled to shut up shop. This has a serious impact on our central Vermont listeners, of course, from whom we have received continuing assistance and enthusiasm over the past eight years. We will keep you all posted -- and if your local radio station would like to broadcast K&D, we'll be happy to supply the show on a pair of CDs at a nominal cost. Please contact us for information.
  • The live stream is, of course, now gone.

We will keep you all posted -- and if your local radio station would like to broadcast K&D, we'll be happy to supply the show on a pair of CDs at a nominal cost. Please contact us for information.
  • Shows #366-369 will be posted shortly, which include our interview with Steve Layton and Tom Heasley performing at Ought-One. We've obviously had other things on our minds ... Kalvos will be converting the shows on Sunday, June 30, and they should be available by late night or Monday.
  • Next week's guest is Laurie Anderson. Laurie gives things a political spin, including why cheerleaders aren't hated because they're beautiful. Our live stream will be absent, but we'll archive the show shortly after broadcast!
June 22
Uncertain Future
  • Goddard College is closing its resident program and the Librarian of Congress has approved streaming royalties. The loss of Goddard's resident program could spell the end for our home station WGDR, and the new royalties (retroactive to 1998, and handed over to the RIAA) may put us down. We're pretty doggone tired at the moment. Email and contributions (both together) would cheer us up, at least for a while.
June 9
What a whirlwind! Wish it were about music!
  • We are still live, and were during our mini-show yesterday. Goddard has postponed for eight weeks its decision to close. If WGDR closes, K&D will continue on-line until we find another home station, or are able to distribute the show through some other means. We cannot predict what will happen by September. Our live stream may disappear without warning, so please check back here at kalvos.org for updates before clicking on the live stream links. You can also check Friends of WGDR to see the origins and progress of this possible loss, and how the local community is fundraising to purchase the station. Kalvos & Damian is not in jeopardy as a web entity -- we took steps to protect our show and its guests by establishing kalvos.org five years ago, expanded with our complete audio archives last year through the good graces of pair Networks, with audio funding from the Princeton String Academy. We'll keep you updated, and in the meantime additional contributions will help us assure that Kalvos & Damian can continue to produce the show without WGDR's facilities. Please read this editorial about the WGDR issue. The college vice-president called a few days later to apologize, but the administration did not show up during our pre-emption, so it was all for nothing anyway.
  • Kalvos is delighted to announce that David S. Ware, an old high school classmate and now world-famous, groundbreaking jazz composer/performer, will be interviewed on K&D this summer or fall.

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!

Happy New Year!
  • Happy New Year, everyone! Things have turned very busy; Kalvos will be away for a few days and this site won't be updated, including the playlists, until about January 15.
  • Upcoming guests Schulze, Johnson, Carlick. We'll be setting aside our Ought-One Festival concert broadcasts for a few weeks as we open the studio to some interviews for a special 'emerging composers' series. On January 19, Andrew Schulze will take a break from studenthood at Bard to join us; on January 26, Evan Johnson will take the trek up from Yale; and on February 2, all the way from his high school studies in Toronto comes Cory Carlick, the youngest composer ever to appear on K&D.
