    New Sounds
  • Remembering Steve Martland

    The late British composer, Steve Martland was one of the more quirky composers heard on New Sounds as long ago as the 1980’s. A refugee from punk rock, he studied with Louis Andriessen, before forming his own ensemble.  He passed away earlier this week, at the age of 53.  For this New Sounds, we remember him by revisiting live performances by the Steve Martland Band from the annual Bang on a Can Music Marathon, recorded at Brooklyn Academy of Music in 2000.  Listen to a piece of English folk music adapted to serve the purpose of being connected to football, “Kick,” along with a major work written for the Bang on a Can All-Stars, “Horses of Instruction,” which sounds like a muscular jazz-funk summit between Reich and Stravinsky.  There's also a performance of a short work, “Re-mix.”  Martland introduced each piece from the stage, as well as conducted his ensemble.
