The Pulse of Minimalism

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, July 30, 2011

The pulsing rhythms of minimalism, as heard in the music of English composer Michael Nyman, and fellow Brit Jeremy Peyton-Jones.  Plus there's music from trombonist/composer Paul Bailey and the "alt-classical garage band" Paul Bailey Ensemble.  It's possible that we'll also hear from guitarist Dominic Frasca and his takeoff of music based on Philip Glass, and more.
