Episode #2939

New Music for Violin(s) and Electronics

« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, July 04, 2011

Cornelius Dufallo, composer and violinist in the group Ethel, draws inspiration from the New York nightscape on his solo effort, "Dream Streets."  On this New Sounds program, we’ll hear how Dufallo's acoustic and electronic elements are used to weave stasis music.

Also, there's music from composer, software designer, and band leader of Slow Six, Christopher Tignor, who recently released his solo debut, "Core Memory Unwound." That record is full of intimate tone poems for violin (and piano), both acoustic and treated through his software instruments.  Then, from violinist/composer Todd Reynolds, we’ll hear works for processed violin and interactive electronics, plus something from the late Michael Galasso for solo violin and tape.  And more.
