A Tribute to David Bowie on Civilization Phaze IV, Sunday 1/17

Civilization Phaze IV will be celebrating the life and work of the late great David Bowie.  A master melder of the avant-garde and popular, Bowie was a musical tour de force who had an immense impact on people from all walks of life--he's one of the few artists who was respected in equal measure by people in both classical and popular musical spheres. 

"Knowledge comes with death's release." -David Bowie

This will be the 1st Winter Holiday show for Civilization Phaze IV!  Tune-in on Tuesday at 2pm for a collection of the traditional, semi-traditional, & non-traditional of Winter/Holiday-inspired "classical"(ish) selections.  To give you an idea of what to expect from a Civ Phaze IV Holiday show, here are a few of the artists who will be featured tomorrow: Placido Domingo, Joshua Bell, London Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, Emerson Lake and Palmer (PROG-ROCK FTW!), and more!  Hope you tune-in, and have a wonderful holiday!

Civilization Phaze IV - Tuesday 11/25/2014 2p

This week's episode of Civilization Phaze IV will have pieces by American composers such as Leroy Anderson, Lou Harrison, Jerod Tate, Timothy Archambault, and Brian Wilson (yup, THE Beach Boy).  Oh, and one Dutchman named Simeon ten Holt.

Not only is November 25th just 2 days away from Turkey Day - it is also the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women - of course that should be EVERY day but this day was selected to commemorate the deaths of the Mirabal sisters in the Dominican Republic (they were murdered because they opposed the dictatorship of then-ruler Rafael Trujillo).

It's HALLOWEEN (almost)!  

And we're celebrating on Civilization Phaze IV with an hour of classical jams with the theme "Horror in Music + Film" (the CLASSIC horror films...and some straight-up 'death'-related classics).  If you want to hear some creepy classics from awesome films like "The Shining" "Rosemary's Baby" or "Psycho," tune-in at 2pm Tuesday or catch the replays leading up to Halloween Eve on Wednesday at 10pm or Thursday at 7:30am.

Civilization Phaze IV - Tuesday 9/30/2014 at 2:00pm

This week on Civilization Phaze IV:

Your host Eunah will have a guest musician in the studio - classical bass player Miles Tsue - who will share a couple of his favorite jams, some of his own mad bass-playing skills (hopefully his GIANT bass can fit in our darling little KDRT studio), as well as his thoughts on his future prospects as a young classical musician with big dreams.  

Here's Miles at his Junior Recital last year at CSU Sacramento where he is currently pursuing a BM in Bass Performance - the piece is a Bass transcription of "Arpeggione" by Franz Schubert:

Here's Miles (and fellow bassist Vincent Antolini) performing a NEW music composition by Sacramento-area composer Cole Cuchna - the piece is for mixed media + 2 basses, entitled "a place 4 higher beings":
