Introducing the new NO WAVE NO DIEGO RESIDENT ARTIST: Friedmund Konrad

Roughly every season, we will select a local musician/artist/composer in the greater San Diego area as the "Resident Artist." To kick-off this new feature, we have selected the ever-secretive composer/pianist Friedmund Konrad. Very little is known about F. Konrad, except his interest in turn of the century post romantic/tonal Germanic works.

For No Wave No Diego, he has provided a specific piece for us to enjoy. You can download his work by clicking here.

His myspace is here:

NO WAVE NO DIEGO: January 15th, 2010: A Look at the "Tristan chord"

On today's show we examined one of the most famous chords in music.
Richard Wagner's "Tristan chord", which is found in the prelude to and
throughout his opera "Tristan und Isolde", is Wagner's most renowned
contribution to the history of music and Western music's most noted
example of unresolved dissonance. "Tristan und Isolde" has the
reputation of being the seminal work in the emancipation of harmony
from the Classical tonal system. We also played Paul Lansky's "Mild
und Liese", who uses the chord and messes around with it in the piece.
For more analysis check out the wiki page devoted to it.
