Delays & Loops


For this New Sounds, we’ll hear music that incorporates looping and delay devices, first by digging into Todd Reynolds’ new double-CD, “Outerborough.”  Reynolds plays a work by Phil Kline, “A Needle Pulling Fred,” and a piece by David T. Little that samples a woman’s voice talking about being in the military and the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy.  Then listen to something new from the one-woman band, guitarist/looper/delay-artist Julia Crowe, from her latest, "Empire of Light." 

We'll also hear a piece from one-man band Prefuse 73, and his loops, featuring the vocals of Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond. Terry Riley’s “Songs for the Ten Voices of the Two Prophets” with original lyrics sung to the accompaniment of two looped Prophet 5 synthesizers rounds out the show, along with music from cellist and all-round one-man soundscape Aaron Martin.
