Delays & Loops

« previous episode | next episode »

Friday, March 04, 2011

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.

Kitty Brazelton : Ecclesiastes

Modern Oratorios & Sacred Texts (Weekly Podcast)

For this New Sounds, hear some modern oratorios and other sacred texts set to music, including Kitty Brazelton's "Ecclesiastes: A Modern Oratorio," Phil Kline's "John the Revelator," and Douglas J. Cuomo's "Arjuna's Dilemma." Composer, professor, singer, improviser, multi-instrumentalist and bandleader Kitty Brazelton has written a modern oratorio with texts  from the Book of Ecclesiastes, re-translated from the Hebrew and Latin by Brazelton herself.  Her discoveries and deeper readings have uncovered a message that she believes Christians concealed in the 17th century; "live now—your life, whatever it is, is the gift—be grateful for everything, hardship or reward because you can’t understand where they will lead."
