John Cage World Radio Premieres This Week!
on February 18,2011 by jared

Von Wichert, in cooperation with OgreOgress Productions, is pleased to announce that on the February 23rd edition of the Komodo Dragon Show he will be premiering 2 brand new recordings of avant-garde composer John Cage.  The following works will be broadcast, over the course of 4 hours, between 7AM and 11AM CST.

The first piece, Two3, was originally written in 1991 and runs for 121 minutes. Two3 is a suite for sho (traditional Japanese mouth-organ) and conch shells in 10 movements featuring Tamami Tono on the sho and Glenn Freeman on conch shells.

The second piece, 108, was also written in 1991 and runs 43:30. The piece is a symphony for large orchestra in 4 movements, performed by the Chance Philharmonic. 108 is written for the largest ensemble of any of Cage's Number Pieces. Its length of 43'30'' is an allusion - intentional or not - to the infamous 4'33'' (1952) that earned Cage considerable fame. 108 is in four movements and, when played by itself, more closely resembles a traditional symphony than any other piece in Cage's output.

The final piece, 110, is 108 played with any three movements of Two3, making a double concerto for sho and
conch shells plus symphony orchestra. More information on Cage's number pieces is available here. The pieces heard today will be released on audio DVD later in March.


The Chance Philharmonic is comprised of:

Christina Fong, violins/violas
Karen Krummel, violin/cellos
Michael Crawford, contrabasses
Ruth Bylsma, piccolo/flutes/alto flute
Sarah Bowman, oboes/english horns
Michael Kornacki, clarinets/bass clarinets
Vince Karamanov, bassoons/contrabassoons
Paul Austin, horns
Michael Bowman, trumpets
Robert Ward, trombones/bass trombones/tuba
Glenn Freeman, percussion

R.I.P. Chuck Green
on January 31,2011 by jared

We at UMFM would like to send our sincere condolences out to the friends and family of Chuck Green who passed way over the weekend.  Mr. Green was a strong proponent of Winnipeg's music scene for more than 30 years, and his presence will be missed immensly.

From today's Winnipeg Free Press:

THE city has lost its most famous Zoo keeper.

Chuck Green, co-owner of the Osborne Village Inn, which includes the bars The Zoo and Ozzy's, died on Friday at the age of 54. Green had diabetes requiring him to be on dialysis for 20 hours a week, along with kidney and liver problems.

Green was a big supporter of the Winnipeg music scene and boasts a list of friends that includes music royalty and local bands that played their first live shows at the Zoo or Ozzy's. Since purchasing the hotel with his brothers Coleman, David and Rick in 1978, thousands of bands have played on the venue's two stages, including Nickelback, Lee Aaron, David Wilcox, Voivod, Soul Asylum, Black Oak Arkansas, Max Webster, the Guess Who and Sacrifice.

Green had a solid reputation with everyone he dealt with, from musicians to the media. He is survived by his wife Ruth; son Louis and daughter Minnie; his father Ernest; his three brothers and sister Cheryl.

He might have best been known as a business owner and local music promoter, but family was the most important thing in his life.

"I've done a lot of damage to my hands and feet -- I'm in constant pain -- but I've never had to worry about a paycheque. My brothers have always been there, running for me and protecting me. This place could burn to the ground and I wouldn't shed one tear. But family... that's really all you have," he said during a 2007 interview with Winnipeg Free Press writer David Sanderson.

A graveside service will be held at Rosh Pina Cemetery, 2795 Main St. on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. with a meal of consolation to follow at at Etz Chaim Synagogue.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations made to the Canadian Kidney Foundation.
