Calder Quartet. (David Andrako/courtesy of Merkin Concert Hall)

This New Sounds program explores the impact that the subgenre known as “glitch” music has had on the new music world.  Listen to Daniel Wohl’s piece, “Glitch,” as performed by the Calder Quartet interacting with electronics from a New Sounds Live in collaboration with the Ecstatic Music Festival. 

The style goes back to the 1990’s and is music built around alleged mistakes or errors, embracing the sound of the damaged audio produced by the failure of digital equipment.  One of the so-called pioneers of “glitch electronica” was the German band Oval and there’s a piece from them as well.   Then, sample a Brian Eno piece called "Glitch,” as well as a work by Ryuichi Sakamoto and German artist Alva Noto, in collaboration with Ensemble Modern.  And, as always, much more.

Never heard of the genre, interesting to blend with acoustic. Reminiscent of the sound of my fm3 buddha machine.
