Friday, May 27, 2011

From the New Sounds Live Silent Film series at the World Financial Center, listen to new music written for the films of Japanese master Yasujiro Ozu and played live by composer/bandleaders Robin Holcomb, Wayne Horvitz, and Lori Goldston.  These three Seattle-based composers managed to make it despite the Snowmageddon.   Hear excerpts from cellist Lori Goldston's score for a tale of father-son closeness - Ozu's "Passing Fancy," Wayne Horvitz' score to the melodrama of sibling sacrifice, "Woman of Tokyo," and highlights from Robin Holcomb's score for the crime thriller "That Night's Wife."

An Alternate Score for Friday Night Lights

To mark the last season of Friday Night Lights, the New Sounds All-Purpose Assistant has wheedled a way to have some of the music that should have scored the TV show- into a podcast!  Hear here this New Sounds go at scoring an episode (or three.)  
Sure, there is an expected inclusion, with Explosions in the Sky, and Efrim Manuel Menuck (Godspeed!) but get a listen to fellow Texans This Will Destroy You, Leeds, UK-based Vessels and the British post-rock band Codes in the Clouds.  The show was meant to be a thank-you note to the music supervisors in the guise of a “Recommended If You Like (RIYL) Explosions in the Sky.”  Get a load of that tremolo guitar, the shifting and swelling rockness of the instrumental slow-core.
