Electronically Enhanced Acoustica

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Hear works for acoustic instruments and electronics, with the combinations of piano and electronics, violin and electronics, or a small ensemble using no electronics at all on this New Sounds program.  We'll listen to Open Graves with Stuart Dempster recorded way down in a water cistern, which sounds very processed, although it was all acoustic.

There's also piano with sampled sounds of water by Afro-Cuban jazz pianist Omar Sosa from his record, "Calma."  Then we'll hear a work by Neil Rolnick, from his release, "Extended Family" which at times sounds like an early jazz salooon piano, then quotes old hymn tunes, all with electronics interacting with the acoustic piano.  Plus, long slow building guitar droney post-rock from Hammock, and more.
