American sound-designer, film editor and composer, Matteo Marchisano-Adamo makes cinematic audio sculptures out of prepared piano and electronics from a collection of “Inventions.” We'll also hear electronic music based on the sounds of Indonesian gamelan by Gregory Taylor, and some rooted in sounds from Jamaica and Zimbabwe as well. That, and more on this New Sounds.

Cinematic Sounds of Iceland (Special Podcast)

On this New Sounds program, we’ll hear a sampling of works from a concentrated new music hotspot: Iceland.  It’s a scene where rock music, orchestral music and electronics are blended freely and without regard for genre lines.  To get an idea, we’ll hear music by composer/producer Valgeir Sigurdsson, who balances chamber and classical against rock and electronica.  Plus, something from the now San Diego-based Anna Thorvaldsdottir, whose frosty orchestral music seems to invoke a shimmery soundworld of texures, even though it is played using just acoustic instruments on her record, “Rhizoma.”
