      New Sounds
    • Musical Portraits of the English Landscape

      For this New Sounds, listen to musical portraits of the rolling hills and little lanes of the English countryside, and the English fascination with landscape.  There’s music from a recent recording by English sax player, clarinetist and composer John Surman,“Saltash Bells.” Built around loops of synth tones, the work is an audio reminiscence of hearing bells ringing from the church across the river.  Also, listen to a portion of an early work from Mike Oldfield, “Hergest Ridge," named after an elongated hill on English/Welsh border.  Also, listen to music from Brian Eno and Jocelyn Pook.  Plus music by Michael Nyman from “Drowning By Numbers.”
