Description
The Other Minds collection includes over twenty five years of music programming produced by the San Francisco based new music organization Other Minds. Concerts, panel discussions, presentations, etc. have been documented since 1993 in audio and visual formats.
Background
Other Minds, Inc., is dedicated to the encouragement and propagation of contemporary music in all its forms through yearly festival concerts, film screenings, public discussions, commissioning of new works, a record label, weekly radio broadcasts, and preservation of audiovisual media. Other Minds was co-founded by Charles Amirkhanian and Jim Newman, two longtime advocates for living artists who themselves actively created new work. Amirkhanian was well-known to the San Francisco Bay Area new music community as a broadcaster of interviews and concerts on KPFA-FM Radio (1969-1992) and a composer of sound poetry and electroacoustic music. Newman was the legendary founder of San Francisco’s first serious art gallery of the modern era, Dilexi (1959-1970), and producer of experimental television programs and films on music and the visual arts.
