Oramics

Tonight we explore the music of one of the unsung heros of electronic music, British composer Daphne Oram. She worked at the BBC in the late 1950s where she co-founded the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and became its first Studio Manager. A year later she resigned from the workshop, being unhappy with BBC's music department's lack of interest in the more experimental music that was beginning to be created in Europe and abroad. Instead she designed her own  Oramics Studios for Electronic Composition, and produced a far wider range of music than the Radiophonic Workshop.

Todd Haynes, Joanna Priestley, and the Art of Collaboration

program: 
The Film Show
program date: 
Thu, 01/26/2012

Director Todd Haynes (Superstar: the Karen Carpenter Story, I'm Not There, Mildred Pearce) and animator Joanna Priestley have similarities beyond making their homes in Portland and spotlighting themes important to women.  Both filmmakers are big believers in collaboration, improvisation, and artistic reinvention.

Host S.W. Conser talks with Haynes and Priestley about their work and about upcoming events, including a screening of films created by homeless youth as part of Outside In's Guerrilla Theatre Youth Film Festival.

Note: Previous Film Show programs can be accessed at KBOO.fm/BehindtheScreen.

Extended audio of Todd Haynes' interview will be posted soon on KBOO's website.  Check back in at KBOO.fm/TheFilmShow.
