« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

For this New Sounds, we present highlights from the annual new music extravaganza, the Bang on a Can Marathon.  The French bass player, composer and laptop manipulator Florent Ghys writes witty minimalist pop music pieces. We’ll hear some of these, recorded live at the World Financial Center.

Plus, the Dutch percussion masters Slagwerk Den Haag performs music by Korean composer Seung-Ah Oh. Also, the Kaufman Center's teenaged new music ensemble, called Face the Music, performs “Mesh” by Graham Fitkin and more.  (This show is part 1 of 3.)
