  • Delay Music

    Listen to music built around the sound of delay, both digital and tape looping on this New Sounds program.  We’ll hear from the most recent offering by Phillip Schroeder, “A Passage Through A Dream.”  It’s a record featuring the layered sounds of piano and clarinet, processed through digital delay, resulting in "lush kaleidoscopic textures." (The composer's own words.)  Also, the otherworldly waves of drone created by Terry Riley’s use of loops and delay on "Poppy Nogood And The Phantom Band All Night Flight, Vol. 1."
