Episode #3084

New Music from Montreal

« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, September 26, 2011

Montreal guitarist/composer Tim Brady makes dark sounds with bowed electric guitar, guitar with loops, with tapes, and with computers.  The overall effect -ambient and abstract- is intended to evoke the depths of the ocean in a work by Jean-Francois Laporte, “The Song of the Whale.”   Also, hear atmospheric electronic music from Mains de Givre(“Hands of Frost”) an enhanced duo of violin, guitar and lots of effects.

Plus, there's some “post-rock” from the likes of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Bell Orchestre (featuring members of Arcade Fire), where the shoegaze approach to classical is mixed with the wall-of-sound achievements of say - Glenn Branca’s Guitar Army, as "rock" instruments play well together with “classical” strings, reeds, and percussion.
