Episode #3075

Movement and Repetition

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

For this New Sounds, it's about repetitive motion. Hear the two-piano robotic toccata and other movements from "brazen" 24-year-old composer Timothy Andres’s "Shy and Mighty." Then, listen as Ted Reichman's slow-layered repetitive piano and organ phrases slowly build on his "My Ears Are Bent." Also, Dominic Frasca's got precision and angularity on his side as he taps and arpeggiates his ten-stringed guitar (augmented with some electronic processing) into musical impossibilities/improbabilities on his "Deviations." Plus, music by Philip Glass, and more.
