Small Ensembles

Sunday, September 30, 2012

For this New Sounds, listen to some works for small ensembles, played by both "real" and "virtual" small ensembles.  We’ll hear music from the Turkish-American composer Kamran Ince from the album “In White,” along with ambient chamber music by Phillip Schroeder.

Schroeder’s piece, “This We Have” is performed by one of these "virtual" ensembles – just two people - soprano Amy McGinty , together with piano, synthesizer, electric bass, and percussion performed by the composer to create multiple shimmering textures.  Also, there’s music from Italian composer Luisiana Lorusso that falls somewhere between jazz and classical, featuring a “real” ensemble, comprised of string quartet with piano bass and drums.  Also, listen to music by the enhanced duo, itsnotyouitsme – just electric violin and electric guitar- with a lot of loops and delays.   And a whole lot more.
